The Ashanti Regional Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Francis Adomako has rallied aspirants who contested in the just ended parliamentary primaries of the party to close their ranks and unite to plot a coherent strategy to retain power in December.
Speaking to the Ghanaian Observer newspaper Sunday morning, the organiser said as democrats and patriots the aspirants knew there were only two outcomes in elections, winning or not winning.
According to Mr Adomako, nothing is more special than to have the opportunity to compete in an election in the NPP.
This, he noted was because the NPP is the most attractive political party in the country, adding that those who had the chance to participate in the largely peaceful polls must count themselves lucky.
“As a party that is loved by persons who believe in using democratic principles to govern we should quickly close our ranks and forge ahead in unity once the parliamentary primaries are over”, the regional organiser advised.
Mr Adomako appealed to the winning candidates to reach out to the unlucky contestants so that together they could unite and plot a common strategy to retain power in the upcoming general elections in December.
The organiser also asked supporters of both winning and losing candidates not to fan the flame of enmity but rather unity.
He noted that political parties that are able to manage their internal differences are better placed to plan a coherent strategy to attain their set targets.
The just ended elections and outcomes only show how the NPP delegates want to be represented in Parliament, the famous lecturer posited.
“As a party our best bet to retaining power is to be united in the strategies we intend using to prosecute the election campaign”, Mr Adomako said.
Mr Adomako commended the party’s hierarchy for plotting a highly successful election process across the country.
He lauded the efforts of the Ashanti Regional executives which he noted ensured a smooth running of the process.
The regional organiser said the elections in the constituencies across the country could never have ended well without the massive contributions of the Security outfits as well as the Electoral Commission, the only legitimate body to conduct elections.
Mr Adomako spared a thought for the media whose timely reports he noted helped the party to quell simmering tensions that were arising at some few areas in Ashanti.
” I am grateful for the stupendous roles played by the EC, the Security agencies, media and other outfits that ensured a smooth internal primaries last Saturday”, the Regional Organiser stressed.
