The National Coordinator of the Nasara Wing of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kamal Deen Abdulai has urged Muslims to continue interceding for lasting peace in the country as they observe this year’s Ramadan.
He has also extended felicitation to all Muslims, asking them to pray for progress and unity within the party.
He made the call during a meeting with 34 constituency coordinators of the Nasara Wing of the party in Accra. Mr. Abdulai presented 34 mini bags of rice and 120 boxes of sugar to support the executives who had embarked on the spiritual journey. The gesture, he said, would be replicated in all the regions during the fasting period at a cost of GHC 250,000.
“As we go through this prayer month, all Muslims must ensure that the peace we enjoy is not disrupted. They must also come together to seek God’s favour for all those who are helpless in our communities,” he said.
At the meeting, which was the first major encounter between him and the constituency coordinators, issues such as the drafting and adoption of rules and regulations for Nasara in all constituencies were discussed.
It was also to update the local coordinators on Nasara activities at the national level and to deliberate on measures to foster unity in the localities.
Mr. Abdulai said his outfit was in consultation with legal practitioners to draft a document which would guide all activities of the wing in the constituencies upon approval of all regional and national executives.
He noted that it was important for all constituency members to abide by the laws of the party and also be dedicated towards rallying the needed support in their various localities to ensure the party regains power.
“Commitment and understanding is very necessary in order to chart a good course towards victory in 2016. As executives of the parry, we must not flout the regulations guiding the party. We must show enthusiasm and work in harmony for the party,” he said.
The national coordinator added that although there may be challenges in mobilizing people, coordinators must not relent in their efforts and assured that they would be honoured for their various contributions.
He advised them to eliminate divisive tendencies, noting that the success of the party was dependent on grassroots support.
Commenting on the upcoming presidential primaries, he tasked constituency executives to be neutral and support any candidate who would be elected to ensure victory.
