Aspiring General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party, John Boadu, is promising to provide offices for the various constituencies of the party that are without any if elected by the party members.
Addressing party executives during his two-day tour of the Upper West Region, he said if given the mandate, he would within two years ensure that those constituencies without offices are provided with one.
To demonstrate his commitment, Mr. John Boadu said he would for a start, use his personal resources to construct at least 20 permanent constituency offices for the party before the 2018 National Annual Delegates Conference in June.
With the exception of Upper West which already has a permanent office, each region, he said, would have two of such permanent offices after the necessary consultations with the respective regional executives of the party have been concluded.The tour which ended on Wednesday saw Mr. Boadu and his team visit each of the 11 constituencies of the Upper West Region and interacted with the party executives and took cognizance of their peculiar challenges.
They included Wa Central, Nandom, Jirapa, Wa west, Lambuise, Daffiama Bussie Issa, Wa East, Nadoli-Kaleo, Lawra, Sissala West and Sissala East constituencies.Mr Boadu who is currently the National Organiser of the NPP used the campaign tour to express his strong commitment to strengthening the party’s structures at all levels.
On the specific issue of providing constituency offices, John Boadu and his team, after listening to the concerns of the constituency executives and consulting the regional party, selected the Wa West and Sissala West constituencies from the Upper West region to be the beneficiaries of the first 20 constituency offices to be built by Mr. Boadu before the June conference.
Beyond that, John Boadu also promised to buy and donate to the party, the rented office being used by the Jirapa constituency executives after the constituency Chairman, Mr. Justin Dakurah Bayela made a passionate appeal for his intervention in getting them a permanent constituency office.
He also gave GHC10, 000 to the Nadoli-Kaleo constituency executives for the immediate completion of the constituency party office, which is under construction on the benevolence of the constituency Chairman, Mr. Martin Andonye.
Similarly, the aspiring general secretary, in response to a passionate appeal made by Bukari Suara Tahiru, the Sissala East constituency chairman for a permanent constituency office, advanced GH10, 000 seed money to the constituency executives for this purpose.
Again, Mr. Boadu informed the constituency executives that he has procured some computers and other IT infrastructure, which would be given to each of the 275 constituencies in the country for the effective running of party offices at the various levels.
