London based New Patriotic Party youth activist, Musah Superior, is of the view that the party could win the 2012 elections only if the current attitude of self interest and factionalism within the party was wiped out. 

 Making reference to what he described as a general autopsy of the 2008 Presidential and Parliamentary election results contained in a press release, he attested to the fact that his mother party lost the elections because it lacked a master plan to retain power. 

 "Our party did not reach out more to non-NPP voters, the local people and the traditional rulers. "Not that Ghanaians desired change or our campaign promises were unachievable or our Presidential candidate was unpopular in the eyes of the electorate, but the disunity and greediness within our fold strangled our intra-party politics, which led to our defeat,' he observed.

Without concentrating much on his usual blame game, Musah Superior called on the rank and file to make every effort to rebuild the NPP towards the 2012 general elections. 

 'We are members of the NPP who are in pain, and we must fight to regain our composure by closing our ranks and have a common stand, if not on all issues, at least on some major ones such as working together to deliver in 2012,' he posited. 

 Musah Superior tasked every stakeholder in the party to start grassroots organization by ensuring that competent polling station executives are chosen and specifically tasked to work with the communities and the chiefs to establish a strong NPP presence.

He also suggested that the party should adopt the bottom-to-the-top organizational method, which he said could be achieved through organizing communal activities such as clean up exercises, sporting and periodic traditional entertainment programmes. 

 He further hinted that for his mother party to recapture power from the ruling National Democratic Congress, 'there is the need for greater participation of the foot soldiers in the decisions making process. We should operate a system which will encourage all to make their views known and heeded to.'
