Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the defeated presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Election 2008, has said he would not criticize President John Attah Mills' administration now but would do that when the need arises.

"We in the NPP are just watching the NDC. We will not criticize now. We will wait a little bit before we criticize. That is if the need arises," he said.

Nana Akufo-Addo was addressing supporters of the NPP at a forum in Wa to thank the people of the Upper West Region for supporting the party to win three parliamentary seats in the region.

"I have come to encourage our supporters in the region to continue to stay united to face the future. The support we received in the 2008 election must be nurtured to grow bigger and bigger come 2012 to enable the NPP to win the election" he said.

Nana Akufo-Addo said the party would examine the reasons for its failure and come out with workable plans, first to put the pieces together, forge ahead in unity and prepare well for Election 2012.

"We will reorganize the party by electing new executives and also amend some parts of the constitution to make the party to look more attractive and formidable to win the 2012 election", he said.

He said the NPP in its 60 years, had gone through several challenges and cannot be blown away by any wind, adding that building the party was not an individual affair but a role for all stakeholders.

Nana Akufo-Addo said the country had been evenly divided between the NPP and the NDC and each of them must play its role appropriately to ensure peace, tranquility, togetherness and a sense of direction for the rapid development of the country.

"Our ideas are in the public domain and the NDC can take them to help develop the country", Nana Akufo-Addo said.
