Mr Paul Afoko, National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), on Monday appealed to the national, regional, and constituency executives of the party, to promote unity, as the party prepares for parliamentary primaries, slated for June 13, 2015.
He said Ghanaians were calling on the NPP to save the country from the gross economic mismanagement by the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Mr Afoko is currently touring regional capitals with Kwabena Agypong, NPP General-Secretary, to roll out the party’s new plan to win power.
A statement signed by Mr Curtis Perry K. Okudzeto, NPP Deputy Communications Director, and copied to the Ghana News Agency, said the NPP national chairman urged the executives to select those who could help the NPP to win political power, in the parliamentary primaries.
“Your only consideration in the selection of parliamentary candidates should be how the person can win us more votes in both the parliamentary and presidential,” Mr Afoko said.
Mr Agyapong assured the “front line soldiers” that he would steer the affairs of the party to victory in 2016.
He called for discipline in the party, and cautioned members who run to the media, with the aim of running down other party members, to be careful, because “the National Council has drawn the line and will apply punitive sanctions.”
