nana-addoThe 2012 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has appealed to the constituency local officers to keep calm during the party’s pending internal elections of officers.  

His remark followed reports that various local offices have issued their own guidelines for the elections, which has been scheduled to begin Saturday, November 30, 2013 at the various  polling station     levels.

Constituency, regional and national executive elections would be held before the national delegates congress.
Nana Akufo-Addo, who is on a “political break” after the Supreme Court ruling on the 2012 election petition case, stated on his Facebook wall that, he wanted the election to be organised in a “dignified manner”.

“I call on all members of the party to go through these next few months of elections of party officers in a most dignified manner,” he said.

He also challenged the rank and file of his party to look towards the 2016 election with greater optimism. According to Nana Akufo-Addo, unity among the rank and file of the party will be an essential condition for victory in the 2016 polls.
He cautioned that as the party prepared to elect officers to lead the party into the 2016 general elections, they should remember that the contest should  be fraternal.

“We must keep it clean and convivial so that we can all get back together, to strategise together, and work together to secure victory together in 2016,” he added.

Nana Akufo-Addo also advised that language used in the party must be one of solidarity, adding “the aim is to get effective organisers to drive the party to victory in 2016. We are going to look for competency and not to tear ourselves apart”. Source: Ghanaweb
