One of the candidates vying for the position of second vice chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Upper West Region, Mr Hafiz Bin Salih, has said the NPP does not deserve to be out of power, considering the support and loyalty it enjoyed from Ghanaians during its eight years reign.

He has therefore stressed the need for all Dankwa-Busia faithful to do everything possible to reclaim political power from the ruling National Democratic Congress, as well as redeem the party from its present position.

Mr Bin Salih said if the few months that the NDC had been in power was anything to go by, then the chances of the NPP in 2012 were brighter.

Mr Bin Salih who was interacting with the Daily Graphic in Wa, therefore called on all delegates to endorse candidates who have the growth and sustenance of the NPP at heart in order to reclaim power from the NDC, come 2012.

Describing himself as one of such candidates, Mr Bin Salih catalogued some of his achievements when he was the youth organiser of the NPP in the Upper West Region as a facilitator in the establishment of the Tertiary Education Student Confederacy (TESCON) of the NPP in the College of Education and the Nursing Training College in Wa, whipping up the interest of the youth in the activities of the NPP in the region, the establishment of youth clubs for the party in the region as well as the establishment of a public relations unit for the party in the region.

He said it was on the basis of such credentials that he must be given the chance to support the other winning candidates to carry the party on their shoulders for a sounding victory, come the year 2012.

Mr Bin Salih also used the platform to express appreciation to all those who supported him and the NPP in diverse ways during his role as a regional youth organiser.

Mr Bin Salih, holds a Master of Arts (MA) from the University of Cape Coast (UCC), a postgraduate diploma from the Paris Graduate School of Management and a Bachelor of Education from the University College of Education, Winneba.

During his school days, he served as President of the Northern Students Union, Vice-President of the Ghana Muslim Students Union and President of TESCON.

On his role in the NPP since he started full time politics, the soft-spoken candidate said he served as a member of the election committee for the NPP in the Nadowli West and Jirapa constituencies in 2008 and was also a member of the fund raising committee during the 2004 general election.

Mr Bin Salih was an assembly member at the Wa Municipal Assembly.
