Incumbent NPP National Chairman seeks four years.
Bolgatanga, Oct 24, GNA- The incumbent National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Haruna Esseku, has repeated his call on party delegates to vote him back to power to enable him to retain the NPP in power come 2008.
Speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Bolgatanga at the weekend, Mr Esseku explained that he possessed vast experiences that would benefit the Party, and said this could be examined from his record and achievements chalked during the past four years of NPP Administration.
Enumerating some of his achievements, he said it was through the hard work under his administration that the NPP retained power in the December 2004 general elections.
He further mentioned that it was through his administration that the NPP party Executives Committees were formed and made operational in all the regional capitals, stressing, "the NPP now has a national character."
The 71-year-old incumbent said he was still energetic with sharp brains, adding that this, backed by past experiences, would enable him to bring the party to power in 2008 if given the nod.
He debunked the notion being peddled by his two contestants -- Mr. Mac Manu and Mr. Stephen Ntim that, they were young with youthful exuberance and could deliver better, saying that this cannot be substantiated.
Mr. Esseku therefore appealed to all NPP delegates to give him another mandate to carry the NPP to victory in the 2008 general election.
