NPP Area Coordinators urged to be innovative
WA, Dec. 8, GNA - Mr Ibrahim Tamaa, Upper West Regional Secretary of the New Patriotic Party has urged the newly elected Area Coordinators of the Party to be innovative, by initiating grass root structures that would strengthen the Party on the ground in preparation for the next elections.
He suggested the formation of disciplinary, fund raising and campaign committees in their electoral areas, identify all active party supporters and assign roles to them as a way of promoting inclusiveness, to make all such people feel needed by the Party.
Mr Tamaa said this at the swearing in of the 18 electoral area coordinators and the newly elected Wa Central Constituency Executive of the Party at Wa on Monday.
He however advised the Area Coordinators against the formation a parallel executive to rival the constituency executive as such a development would never augur well for the smooth running of the party.
Mr Ali Kamara, the new Constituency Chairman noted that indiscipline and greed contributed immensely to the Party's loss of power in last year's elections and pledged that he and his executives were determined to eschew those evils during their tenure.
He said they would aggressively assess why the Party has since 1992 failed to win the Wa Central Constituency seat and come out with strategies to win the seat in 2012 elections.
Infighting within the party in the constituency should be a thing of the past, he said, and appealed to all party supporters to bury their differences and come together to fight for victory in 2012.
"I am prepared to sell my belongings to assist any party member who is prepared to work for the party for us to recapture power", he promised.
Mr Kamara hinted that he was not interested in parliamentary primaries saying they often led to acrimony and divisions in the party and as a result they would want to use consensus building in choosing the next parliamentary candidate for the constituency.
