The 2016 Presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, is expected to officially outdoor his campaign team for the 2016 elections on Saturday, December 19, at the Party’s Annual Delegates’ Conference to be held in Sunyani.
The NPP flagbearer made this known when he addressed members of the party at the annual fundraising dinner of the NPP-United Kingdom branch on Saturday.
Prior to the outdooring of the campaign team, Nana Akufo-Addo is expected, on his return to Ghana, to present the composition of his campaign team to members of the National Executive Committee (NEC) and the National Council of the party before the official outdooring ceremony.
Nana Akufo-Addo said the Sunyani Conference, would set the tone for the party to meet and “set the agenda and framework for the 2016 campaign, to show the world that the NPP is, indeed, all there, ready to take on the task of winning next year’s election and forming an honest government that will provide relief, progress and prosperity for the great, longsuffering people of Ghana.”
The 2016 campaign, the NPP flagbearer stressed, is for all NPP members, NPP sympathizers and all those who want change in the country.
“I know that often it is the unsung, unmentioned, unrecognized people who do the real work. Those of you who can come home, please do but more importantly, let your money do the work for you and I promise I will not let you down,” he added to a standing ovation from the packed auditorium at the Boleyn Banqueting Suite.
Nana Akufo-Addo assured all NPP members that he shall lead a team that would campaign vigorously around the country, adding that “I am itching to go”.
The NPP, he stressed, shall be contesting every polling station, every constituency and every part of Ghana.
“Where we have been strong traditionally, we shall work to increase our votes and where we have been weak, we shall put in extra effort to improve on our performance. We have to win the 2016 election. There can be no question about it,” he noted.
Victory in the 2016 election, he reiterated would not be for the NPP, neither would it be for the members of the party “but for the people of Ghana who were undergoing unnecessary hardships and difficulties.”
