An economics and finance lecturer at the Catholic University College of Ghana in the Brong Ahafo Region, Dr Charles Kwame Addo, is reported to be lacing his boot to contest for the regional chairmanship position of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), when nominations are opened.

According to sources some key members of the party have been intensifying their efforts at getting Dr Addo to contest the race because they see his genuine commitment to the party and some traits they perceive could be brought to bear positively on the fortunes of the party.

Dr Addo, who authored the book, “Returning the elephant into the city: the unfinished contract with Ghana,” a book that raised funds for the party and was launched at Sunyani by President Nana Akufo-Addo.

He contributed to building the confidence and morale of party members across the country during the run up to the 2016 elections, and may have played a significant role in the party’s victory.

Dr Addo indicated that if he receives the nod by delegates as chairman of the party in the Brong-Ahafo Region, he would advance a policy, among others that would consolidate Brong-Ahafo Region as an NPP stronghold.

He added that he would get party members to believe that their contribution to the party is valuable, and deepen their involvement in decision making aimed at preparing the grounds for the 2020 elections.

Dr Addo noted that he would be in a better position to encourage constituencies within the Brong-Ahafo Region to identify their challenges and help find solutions through his commitment.

He assured of an open door policy, as well as advance the party’s aims and objectives in accordance with Article 2 of the party’s constitution.” –starrfmonline.com
