‘Ho Central Constituency NPP can annex parliamentary seat in 2024’
Mr. Ken Ayim, Volta Region First Vice Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said the Ho Constituency of the party has what it takes to annex the parliamentary seat in the next election.
He said in political parlance, you never say never as all things are possible, “if we become determined, united, work hard and persevere.”
Mr Ayim was addressing party members and sympathisers, 29 Electoral Area Coordinators, present and past executives of the Ho Constituency membership in a get-together on Sunday.
The meeting was to brainstorm on their failures, challenges, and achievements towards forging a spirited common front to galvanise resources and development for the Ho Municipality.
The First Vice Chairman, who made a historical analogy of the governance trends in the constituency alluded to the fact that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) since 1992 and during the military regimes had administered the municipality the most without corresponding development.
He said the worst scenario is that the municipality being the heartbeat of the, “political world bank” should depict the microcosm of development across the country but the situation is a complete opposite.
Mr Ayim reminded the meeting that NPP is in power but remained in opposition in relation to the Constituency if they were content with that.
He said the time had come for the party to adopt innovative policies and interventions that would outpace political thinking such as setting aside its conventions and accepting unorthodox measures to hand pick candidates or by acclamation devoid of primaries, could tone down on acrimonies.
Mr Frank Ahaze, Chairman, Ho Central Constituency cautioned the party faithful against disunity in the contest to elect a flagbearer for the party.
He said NPP was a democratic party, and each member was free to support any flagbearer candidate of their choice without name-calling and use of abusive language on opponents.
Mr Richard Divine Bosson, Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) said it was possible to break-the-eight but not with a disjointed front.
He mentioned respect for one another, hard work, perseverance, unity and love for party and country would forthrightly break the eight.
Dr Archibald Yao Letsa, Volta Regional Minister, who chaired the programme entreated the party members and Ghanaians in general to continue to have faith in the government that God could overturn the current economic crisis for better outcomes in the immediate future.
