‘We Shall Overcome Our Challenges’

Mr. Dan BotweThe New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Okere, Dan Botwe, is confident the party will come out stronger and united after its national delegates congress in March 2014.

According to him, skeptics praying for a divided NPP ahead of the 2016 general elections would be proven wrong after their congress.

Dan Botwe was reacting to the seeming confusion that has rocked the ongoing polling station and constituency elections in the party.

Though some constituencies in the Ashanti, Volta, Brong Ahafo and the Greater Accra regions have been successful in electing their new leaders, some aggrieved contestants and their loyalists have been in court challenging the process.

Political pundits have warned the NPP risks losing the 2016 elections if the infighting is not nipped in the bud.

Pollster, Ben Ephson maintained that “the NPP is sowing a seed of disunity which they will harvest in 2016”.

But on Monday, Dan Botwe said detractors were deliberately formenting disunity in the party.

He intimated that the noise about a supposed division in the party was a well orchestrated agenda by some political opponents to run down the NPP.

Mr. Botwe who is a former General Secretary of the NPP observed the bickering in the party was nothing new because it was part of the democratic process.

“Even during church elections there are problems so there is nothing wrong with NPP experiencing some squabbles. Organi-sing elections in 26,000 polling stations is a herculean task,”  he added.

This notwithstanding, the Okere MP said as pacesetters of democracy, the NPP has the ability to manage internal wrangling to ensure all hands come on deck for victory 2016.

Mr. Botwe urged members of the NPP not to be perturbed but work assiduously for a landslide victory in 2016.— Source: ghanaweb
