NPP holds rally in Koforidua
Hundreds of supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Wednesday thronged the Koforidua Jackson's park to attend the party's thanksgiving rally.
They started arriving at the venue at 1000 hours wearing party paraphernalia amidst singing party songs led by the Koforidua Presbyterian Church Brass Band.
Speaker after speaker thanked God for how far He had brought the nation and the peace being enjoyed in the country.
Mr Hackman Owusu Agyemang, the Member of Parliament for New Juaben North, advised all supporters of the party to stand firm, unite and to rally behind the party.
He said the executive of the party would do all they could to break the “no go area jinx of Volta Region” in the next general election.
Mr Owusu Agyemang was quick to add that the Eastern Region, being the home area of the party's presidential candidate, did not do well hence their inability to win the election.
He therefore urged them to go and propagate all the positive achievements of the NPP government during its eight-year reign so that come 2012 Ghanaians would return the party to party.
The General Secretary of the party, Nana Ohene Ntow, urged supporters to believe in the party because it had a very strong opposition in parliament to keep the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government on its toes.
Mr Dan Botwe, MP for Okere, said the NPP had a great future and therefore urged the supporters not to be perturbed about what had happened and be focused for 2012.
Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, presidential candidate of the party in last year's general election, thanked the supporters for their support during the general election and urged them to unite and push the party forward.
He urged them to stop the blame game and work hard to ensure that the party continues to stand on its feet till 2012 when “we will take the seat from the NDC”.
