Nana Addo wants efficient leaders elected

nana-addoNana Akufo-Addo, the 2012 presidential candidate of the opposition New Patriotic Party says the party’s national delegates’ conference, to be held tomorrow in Tamale to elect national executives, has to be peaceful, successful and produce efficient leaders.

He reminded delegates that the weekend’s event marks an important milestone in the history and future of the party.

In a statement he issued yesterday, Nana Akufo-Addo said, “Our task in Tamale, on April 12, 2014, is simple but critical: to choose a team of capable national officers who will lead us, as a united force, to recapture power in the 2016 general elections. The NPP rank and file deserve a leadership which will provide, with urgency, a clear and credible strategic plan for achieving this purpose.”

“We have done very well over the last four months, under challenging conditions, to hold, across the length and breadth of the country, nearly 26,000 democratic elections to choose some 140,000 officers to prosecute our 2016 campaign.

“In spite of the challenges, the high level of participation, energy, zeal and camaraderie that these series of elections generated among our party activists across the country should leave the nation in no doubt that the NPP is coming back — stronger, more united, with a highly motivated grassroots organisation.

“In this regard, I respectfully appeal to all delegates to vote for efficient candidates, who can collectively enhance the image and fortunes of the party in every region of the land.

“We expect from the elected team two things: ensuring the unity of the party and leading us to victory in 2016. We must therefore, conduct ourselves accordingly in a winsome manner,” he said.
