The 2012 flagbearer of the Great Consolidated People’s Party (GCPP), Dr. Herbert Henry Lartey, has described as “unfortunate and disgraceful” current happenings in the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP).
According to him, political parties in the country should be matured enough to tolerate intra-party criticism and wondered why a party that wants the mandate of the people would be fighting among themselves.
According to him, the current endless confusion in the largest opposition party would only give the opportunity to the GCPP to wrestle power from the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), come the general elections next year.
The GCPP leader was addressing the party’s Regional Delegates’ Conference at Sunyani on Wednesday. The conference among other deliberations, elected its new regional executives to steer the affairs of the party for a four-year term.
Dr. Lartey explained that, under a GCPP administration, there would be a huge investment in solar energy for the country to be self sufficient, and even export energy abroad.
This, he said would rake in more revenue for the country to enhance development, and cited the case of Morocco, that currently exports solar energy to Spain.
He explained that under the party’s domestication policy, farmers and market women would be supported financially and also with the needed skills to boost food production, marketing and distribution in the country.
Mr. John Ameka, the 2012 running mate of the party also assured that GCPP was poised to assume the reigns of power, so as to fulfill the aspirations of Ghanaians, who have been over-burdened with numerous challenges.
He said Ghanaians over the years have complained about the maladministration of both the National Democratic Congress and New Patriotic Party, saying, the GCPP has what it takes to rescue them.
“Our eyes are red and we are coming” he added.
He tasked the new executives who were elected by popular acclamation, to work hard and elect what he termed, ‘winning horse’ parliamentary candidates who are capable of winning seats for the party.
