Ahead of the June 13 parliamentary primaries of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), National Chairman Paul Awentani Afoko has called on party officials to be united and eschew tendencies that have the potential of dividing the rank and file of the party at the constituency levels.
Speaking to party officials in Takoradi last Friday, Mr Afoko called on all to be united for a purpose.
In his estimation, Ghanaians are calling on the NPP to save the country from “the gross economic mismanagement by the NDC.”
He urged the gathering to consider only political power in the selection of Parliamentary Candidates.
“Your only consideration in the selection of Parliamentary candidates should be how the person can win us more votes in both Parliamentary and Presidential.”
Mr. Afoko, who is currently touring regional capitals with the General Secretary to roll out the New Plan for Power (NPP), assured the ‘front line soldiers’ of readiness to steer the affairs of the party to victory in 2016.
General Secretary Kwabena Agyepong called for greater discipline in the party.
He cautioned members who run to the media, with the aim of running another party member down, to be careful because, “The National Council has drawn the line and will apply punitive sanctions”.
