This he said was necessary because Ghanaians are looking up to the NPP to save them from the current government.
A statement issued to congratulate the new executives, Nana Addo said: “We should all remember that the Ghanaian people are looking up to us to provide a strong, positive direction to deliver them from the failing government of the NDC. We should not fail them.”
He also urged them not to sideline aspirants who lost the elections and called on past executives to contribute their quota to ensure victory for the party in 2016.
Below is the full statement
This is to congratulate the new National Chairman, Mr. Paul Afoko, and the other national officers of the New Patriotic Party who were elected in the party’s National Delegates’ Conference held in Tamale.
I congratulate the party for the peaceful, credible, efficient and successful manner in which the elections for our national executives were conducted. It has been exciting and competitive.
The high level of participation, enthusiasm and camaraderie that this election generated among our activists gives an indication of their collective energy and commitment to the struggle ahead in 2016.
Internal party contests are not about winners and losers. They are about the party winning. We should all, in the true spirit of our party’s tradition, rally behind our new national officers to strengthen our resolve and singleness of purpose to capture power in 2016.
In this regard, I also urge our new national officers to reach out and bring on board their fellow competitors who were not victorious on the day.
This is the only way we can forge ahead, as a united party, in our quest to restore hope to Ghanaians. I reiterate, once again, my appeal to all former executives to stay engaged in the activities of the Party.
We should all remember that the Ghanaian people are looking up to us to provide a strong, positive direction to deliver them from the failing government of the NDC.
We should not fail them.
May God bless our party, our country Ghana and us all.
Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo
