Members of NPP UK branch descended on the grounds of the Methodist church on Brettenham Rd in Edmonton, North London on Sunday 25th August 2019 in what was termed ‘’The Annual Organiser’s Day BBQ’’.
Brightened by the downpour of light creating an almost sea blue sky, the event which was meant to promote collaboration and team spirit among the members of the 22 chapters of the NPP UK branch, was heavily attended by both members and sympathisers alike.
Members from 19 chapters including members from Scotland attended the event.
Notable among the those who attended was Mr Kwasi Kyei Darkwa aka KKD, easily picked up by his sustained campaign for cool fashion, Mr Peter Antwi Boasiako and Mr Eric Amofa Jnr, who have both returned from Ghana recently after declaring their intentions to represent their respective constituencies in parliament as parliamentarians in the up and coming NPP parliamentary elections.
On his part, the MP for Okaikwei Central and the Deputy Minister for Water and Sanitation, Hon Patrick Boamah who was the special guest at the event, commended the organisers for the event.
In a statement, the Hon MP said “NPP UK put up a great event. Bringing up all members from the chapters was great to see, the best I have ever witnessed.’’
His sentiments were echoed by the NPP UK chairman, Mr Kwaku Nkansah who also said he was happy to see so many chapters represented on the day, a show of real strength and unity among the members of the NPP UK branch.
A statement issued by the branch organiser Mr Kwame Boateng reads:
‘On behalf of the branch chairman Mr Kwaku Nkansah and the entire branch executives, I would like to express my profound gratitude to each of you for your continued support, dedication and commitment to the premier Branch NPP UK. A big thank you to many who contributed in diverse was in both cash and kind.
Special mention of Shirley Kyei, our women’s organiser and her team, Richard Gyamfi, our youth organiser and his team, NPP UK Mugabe, Chairman Arafat and to Nana Addo ladies, I say a big thank you. We are also most grateful to Hon Patrick Boamah MP, for gracing the occasion with his presence and to the entire membership, your presence at the event was an honour and a joy to the NPP UK Branch.
The disappointment of the day was the cancellation of the much talked about games including the football. On this note, I would like to say cheer up Swindon, live to fight another day!
Long live NPP UK and Long Live Ghana.
