NPP-Japan Congratulates Delegates
Paul Afoko, NPP National Chairman
The Japan branch of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has congratulated the 5,200 delegates who participated in the Tamale conference of the party recently.
In a statement signed by the General Secretary Samuel Amponsah and the Chairman Bernard Oppong-Kusi, the branch noted that 'the election of these new officers represents another important milestone in NPP's desire to take power from NDC and take charge of the management of Ghana.'
They commended the elected national officers, security forces, and election officials from the EC on a good job done - which is in keeping with the spirited and positive debate among candidates and their supporters in the run-up to the conference.
They went on, 'We are sure the new elected national officers, under the leadership of Chairman Paul Afoko and General Secretary Kwabena Agyepong will lead NPP in an independent and fearless way. Their stewardship will reflect the principles of fairness and reform that are the hallmark of NPP.
Our new leaders will undoubtedly face many challenges, but their ability to make decisions based on a total landscape (i.e. collective decision-making) and to push past special and singular interest will be a of collective benefit to us all.'
The Japan branch had similar well wishes for other candidates stating that 'we also congratulate other candidates who were not elected, for their love and desire to serve the party and we hope the elected officers would embrace them to work together for a common goal of wrestling power from the incompetent NDC government come 2016.'
