Ahead of Saturday’s conduct of elections at the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) National Delegates’ Conference, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has advised delegates of the party to maintain and safeguard the gains chalked up by the party in the 2016 election.

In his message to delegates of the party through the Daily Graphic, the President noted that it had been an arduous journey for the party since 2008, but working together, shoulder to shoulder as fellow patriots and nationalists for democracy in Ghana, the party was able to overcome the difficulties of opposition and won a famous, historic victory that had brought the party back into office.

The Daily Graphic had elicited a message from the President, through the Communications Directorate of the Presidency, to the 6000 or so delegates attending the 26th annual delegates conference of the party in Koforidua, the capital of the Eastern Region, from today (Friday) to Sunday.

Battle is the Lord’s

“Our stamina was tested, but we kept going in the full belief that the battle was the Lord’s,” the President stated.

In consonance with the theme of the conference, which is: “Building a Stronger Party, Delivering Prosperity to Ghanaians”, President Akufo-Addo urged delegates to be mindful that the election of national officers was of great importance.

“We must elect officers whose principal goals will be to unify the party, strengthen its base and machinery, work hand in hand with the government and ensure that we give this country good governance to bring progress and prosperity to all our people,” he advised.

Unfortunate event

The President said the unfortunate events that characterised the aftermath of the previous national delegates conference in April 2014 held in Tamale, which led to the suspension from office of three senior elected officials and a handful of other officers for undermining the cohesion of the party, must never occur again.

To that end, President Akufo-Addo stressed the need for the delegates to maintain and safeguard the gains of 2016 by electing the right persons.

The party’s delegates who would be gathering in Koforidua today, the President said, held the key to the future of the NPP and Ghana.

“We have the programme and the personnel that can lead Ghana to its destiny of progress and prosperity. When we bring prosperity to Ghana, we bring prosperity to ourselves. We must, accordingly, conduct ourselves in a manner that will deepen the confidence the Ghanaian people have reposed in us. The decisions we take here at this conference should enhance the prospects of our collective future,” he added.

The President was confident that “the NPP delegate will make the right decision and help build a stronger party which will help deliver prosperity to the people of Ghana.”
