The 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has rounded off his 2-day tour of the Western Region, with a clarion call to regional and constituency executives, as well as parliamentary candidates and their competitors, to close their ranks and ensure the NPP becomes the majority party in the Region after the 2016 elections.
In urging the party to close ranks, Nana Akufo-Addo made a passionate appeal to all members of the party in the Western Region to work hard with a sense of unity and purpose, so the NPP assumes the reins of leadership in the country come January 2017.
The NPP flagbearer called on the newly elected parliamentary candidates as leaders of the constituencies to take on the responsibility of bringing everybody on-board in their respective constituencies.
In particular, he charged the parliamentary candidates and aspirants from the Tarkwa Nsuaem, Jomoro, Ellembelle, Evalue Gwira, Ahanta West and Shama constituencies to put aside any differences from the parliamentary primaries and deliver an NPP victory in their constituencies in the 2016 election.
“I believe strongly with co-operation, we can become, again, the majority party in the region,” he said.
He reassured the gathering that, despite the happenings in the party and his continued efforts towards ensuring oneness prevails in the party, he remained focused on the mandate entrusted into his care by the over 125,000 delegates who elected him in the October 2014 presidential primary.
“I intend to remain focussed on the main task ahead, which is how to mobilise the majority of Ghanaians for a change in 2016,” he added.
Nana Akufo-Addo made this known on Thursday, September 24, when addressing a gathering of party faithful from 14 constituencies in the Western Region.
The constituencies were the Wassa East, Shama, Essikado-Ketan, Sekondi, Takoradi, Effia, Kwesimintsim, Mpohor, Ahanta West, Evalue Gwira, Ellembelle, Jomoro, Tarkwa, and Prestea Huni-Valley constituencies.
