Saltpond (C/R), May 24, GNA - The Acting District Chief Executive for Mfantseman, Mr Robert Quainoo-Arthur, has stated that the ruling New Patriotic Party's vision to make Ghana a better nation would be elusive if its house is divided.
"A political party is like a family, where a family is divided, there will be no peace and progress," Mr Quainoo-Arthur said at a meeting with leaders of the NPP in the district at Saltpond on Monday. He cautioned members who have been sowing seeds of disunity and confusion in the NPP to bear in mind that they are not crippling the progress of the Party but also harming the entire nation's development agenda.
The district NPP leadership was at the DCE's office to congratulate him on his re-nomination by the President for the job and to plan strategies to get members of the assembly to approve the nomination. "The absence of a DCE is like a family without a father, no meaningful work takes place," Mr Quainoo-Arthur reiterated and appealed to the assemblies to approve the President's nominees so that work at the local level of governance could progress.
Mr Quainoo-Arthur asked the local NPP leadership to continue educating the electorate on the government's policies and programmes, adding that some people had been complaining about certain decisions taken by the government just because they did not understand them. Mr J.D. Ehuren, Mfantseman East Constituency Chairman of the NPP, who led the delegation, appealed to Mr Quainoo-Arthur to direct attention to the creation of jobs, especially for the youth, if his nomination is approved.
