Former President Agyekum Kufuor has advised the leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) not to detach itself from the grassroots since doing so will destroy the democratic tradition of the party.
He noted that under no circumstance must leadership become detached from the grassroots, since that would destroy the democratic tradition within the party and challenged them to uphold the tradition and not abandon it.
Former President Kufuor counselled in a goodwill message to the NPP at its National Delegates Conference held in Kumasi on December 19, 2021 and also urged the leadership to ensure reconciliation among the rank and file of the party.
“With peace, unity, dedication, determination and committed fellowship, the party and the government’s attractiveness will be urgently restored and deepened to sustain the government towards the year 2024,” he stated.
Former President Kufuor tasked Conference to compel party headquarters to urgently equip itself with a professional strategic team to ensure its opponents did not outsmart the party in the current battle of wits, which was obviously prevailing in the nation’s political arena which must be sustained to break the eight-year political party rule.
He encouraged all party faithful, well-wishers and sympathisers to resolve “unshakably” to uphold and live by the tenets of the Danquah-Dombo-Busia tradition of constitutionalism, democracy, rule of law, good governance, respect for human rights, freedom of thought, expression; in development and private initiative.
“The golden rule of ‘each is our brother’s keeper’ must undergird these tenets, supporters and members of the party to pray for God’s guidance and protection for the government in discharging its responsibility to the nation,” former President Kufuor implored. –classfmonline.com
