Alan Cash: Election ’08 NPP vs. NDC
A former presidential contestant of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Alan Kyerematen, has said the December general election is a champion of champions' battle between the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
He said both parties had ruled the nation for two terms each and had made certain claims in their propaganda with the bid to win the hearts of the electorate for another term of office.
He therefore called on NPP supporters throughout the country to explain the achievements of the party to the people.
Mr Kyerematen said this when he addressed delegates and supporters of the party in Ho as part of a thanksgiving mission for the support rendered to him during the campaign for flagbearership in December
He said the NPP could not afford to lose the next elections, adding that having been in opposition for 30 years it had managed to win the passion of the people and that was the impetus for performing creditably in the two terms of office as a government.
He said a third term for the NPP would bring hope to the people by empowering them to earn money on a continuous basis with the promise that there were good times ahead.
“All of us should put our last effort towards 2008 election so that we come out to appreciate and congratulate ourselves”, he said.
Mr Kyerematen said the empowerment of polling station executives was cardinal to the party and promised the support of the people to deliver their functions efficiently.
He urged them to stay together and focus on the task ahead, adding that it was necessary to change the fortunes of the party in the Volta Region.
