Elect Wisely — Alan Urges Delegates

alan kyeremantengMr. Alan Kyerematen, one of the leading aspiring presidential candidates of the NPP has sent a goodwill message to the delegates attending the party’s national delegates’ conference in Tamale, reminding them of the critical nature of their task at the event.

In a statement he issued, Mr. Kyeremanten noted that the future of the party lay in the decisions the delegates would take with regard to which executive manage the party.

“This upcoming convocation is taking place at a time when the party has lost two consecutive general elections, and also lost a momentous and historical presidential election petition at the Supreme Court. Against this backdrop, the Tamale conference has the most critical task of electing the party’s national leaders who will lead us into the 2016 battle for power.”

He prayed for a peaceful and incident-free conference, reminding them that the party was faced with a formidable challenge ahead of the 2016 general election.

“We are dealing with an incumbent which came to power through what we consider to be very questionable means. Obviously, that incumbent would want to use 2016 to prove hook or crook, that they won 2012 fairly. We can therefore not leave anything to chance or complacency in our preparation for 2016. We should be totally hungry, thirsty and fully prepared for nothing but overwhelming victory. And that will depend on the calibre of leaders we elect in Tamale come April 12.

“I am therefore, appealing to all delegates to do their best to elect for our party competent leaders who will work their blood out for victory in 2016. It is important that approaching 2016, the party gets leaders who are competent, hardworking and totally committed to the party’s cause. The power to elect such leaders is in your hands as delegates. I therefore appeal to you to exercise that power in the best interest of the party, devoid of any persona; or petty considerations.

“The competition and contest should only help us elect the best material to lead the party and not to engender undue strife and petty rivalry. The peaceful outcome of our conference will serve to bolster the attraction of our party to all Ghanaians, most especially the voters who may not be necessarily members or supporters of our party.

“My next appeal to you is to elect national executives who will do all in their power to quickly heal the wounds of the contest and galvanise the party for total unity.

“The party’s chances of winning 2016 definitely lie in our capacity to quickly regroup and unite solidly to fight as a harmonious entity. Let us therefore make party unity, especially after Tamale, a key cornerstone of all our strategic thinking and planning to ensure victory in 2016. Power is what our party needs, and power we will secure once we stand solidly united,” he said.
