The Okaikoi South Constituency Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), George Kotei Quaye, has cautioned delegates of the party to eschew divisive tendencies and ensure peaceful campaign before, during and after the parliamentary elections.
He explained that any cause of disaffection among the rank and file of members could affect the fortunes of the party in the general elections and appealed to the delegates to conduct themselves in a manner that would be attractive to the electorate.
Mr Quaye, who gave the caution in connection with the vetting of aspirants and incumbent Members of Parliament of the party at various constituencies across the country, pleaded with delegates to ensure a peaceful campaign which would sustain the unity prevailing in the party.
He commended the delegates for the gesture shown to their Member of Parliament for Okaikoi South Ahmed Arthur and urged them to sustain the harmony in the party during and after the primaries to give support and assistance to their elected candidates.
Led by Oti Akenteng, Okaikoi South NPP Operations team, the delegates expressed interest in their MP, Mr Arthur and would want him to go for another term in this year’s parliamentary election.
In an interview with Ghanaian Times, he said it was important to support and assist an experienced, unifier and visionary person such as Mr Arthur who is always ready to champion the growth and development of the constituency.
“Mr Arthur’s kind of leadership exhibited in the constituency is highly commendable as he has provided the constituency with the infrastructure and other amenities to improve livelihoods and can also use his political influence, lobby, knowledge and skills to canvass for more votes for the NPP at the December polls.
Mr Arthur expressed his gratitude to the delegates for the gesture and pledged to sustain his assistance and support to the constituency and was optimistic to win the primary so as to make the Okaikoi South Constituency an NPP stronghold.
