The General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Dan Botwe, has urged the electorate in the Manya and Yilo Krobo Traditional Areas to discard falsehood peddled by the NDC against the government and vote massively for the party in the 2004 elections.

He said since the party came into power the "false propaganda by the NDC that under an NPP government, the Krobos would lose their lands in the Akim Traditional Areas has been proved to be untrue."

Mr Botwe was speaking at a meeting he and the National Organiser of the NPP, Mr Lord Commey, held with Polling Stations executives at Lower Manya and Yilo constituencies at Odumase-Krobo and Somanya respectively.

He said the NPP was determined to win the three parliamentary seats in the Krobo area because of the goodwill it had with the people.

Mr Botwe noted with concern petty bickering and character assassination going on among some members of the party and asked them to adopt peaceful means to solve differences.

He said the Kufuor government would not discriminate against any area of the country for political reasons and asked all levels of leadership in the party to make efforts to win more members into their fold.

Mr Commey stressed the need for the leaders to allow the democratic process to prevail in the solution of differences in the party.

The Eastern Regional First Vice-Chairman of the NPP, Mr Christian Kofi Tettey who also the Yilo District Chief Executive, asked them to close their ranks and live in unity.
