Charles Bissue has stated that he conferred with his family and supporters prior to taking the decision to throw in the towel in the race for the General Secretary position of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

In his view, there are various ways he can serve the party, not just through the position of the General Secretary.

Speaking on the New Day show with Johnnie Hughes on TV3 Thursday July 14, he said “I went through the process of nomination, vetting. I made the decision with my supporters, family and promoters based on the exigencies of the time. I realized that it was six of us going for the position and in politics sometimes you have to be strategic.

“Going through the vetting process means that we are all qualified and there is going to be just one General Secretary. So I thought through it and I felt, if you want to work for the party it doesn’t have to be a General Secretary position that you need to do that. Hitherto, I have been working for the party through communications and all that.”

The former Western Region Secretary of the NPP withdrew from the contest to unseat incumbent John Boadu.

His withdrawal brings to five the number of aspirants who have scratched themselves from the race.
