TESCON Endorses Allan's Return
The University of Ghana, Accra City Campus branch of TESCON of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) says they are happy about the return of Alan Kyerematen to the ruling party.
Mr Kyerematen, a former minister and one of the aspiring candidates who contested and lost the last December flag bearership contest of the NPP, on April 17, tendered in his resignation but rescinded his decision on May Day.
He had cited intimidation and alienation of his supporters after the congress as his reason for the resignation.
A statement issued in Accra and signed by Seth Adu-Agyei, Accra City Campus president of TESCON said 'It is always a fact that the NPP believes in democracy and the rule of law and this has run through our internal politics and national politics at large'.
'We appreciate our party leaders and Mr Kyerematen for showing the public the extent to which we believe in democracy. It takes only a party that believes in democracy to welcome a grievance from a party member in good faith and work through any means to address it'.
The release said when the issue came up, all the structures within the NPP took into consideration what Mr Kyerematen said and quickly set into motion a machinery to address his grievances.
It said 'there is no doubt that the party will win majority in the parliamentary seats and capture the presidential seat because there have been major improvements in every sector of our country through the NPP’s hard work in government'.
The release reiterated the need for aspirants and their supporters of the primaries to embark on decent campaigning saying 'we should not lose sight of the fact that unity is key'.
It urged them to desist from negative campaign strategies that will undermine the unity of NPP, saying 'party executives should also conduct free and fair elections as has been our hallmark'.
