I was ecstatic last night. I never knew I could dance in a non-discotheque environment. It was a great night and I felt so relieved that finality has been brought to the contest and NPP had become stronger.
The concession speeches delivered by both Alan and Hon Addai Nimoh cealed rekindled my spirit. I saw the energy in Addai when he callled on all patriots to be united and work for NPP's victory in 2016. He was so genuine and passionate and I believe him.
Alan's body disposition was absolutely brilliant. He demonstrated that he was a dedicated member of the NPP. I enjoyed every bit of his speech. He was straight forward in declaring support for our Presidential candidate and called on all his supporters to do so. He urged all to accept the decision of the delegate stating that "in our Party we compete snd corporate after the competetion". I believe in him too.
Nana was colourful, magnanimous and confident .He congratulated his opponents in the just ended contest and the previously held contest and promised to do everything in his power to unite the Party to ensure we achieve our objective. I have no reason not to believe him.
I also felt another sigh of relief when I saw the likes of OPK, Chieff Obosu, Willem Coleman, Barima Sarpong and Eric Twum at the programme. These young men supported Alan Kyeremanten in the contest but they were at the park to join in the celebration of a significant NPP achievement. I sensed that these talented guys were upbeat to work for the Party. Kudos to you guys.
Unfortunately, the excitingly entertaining night was nearly ruined by a gentleman who stated insulting an Alan 'former' supporter who registered his presence to celebrate the fantabulous success of our great Party. The man was so bitter that he disregarded anyone who tried to pursued him to discontinue his conduct. I was furiously angry; so I approached this 'diehard' Akufo-Addo supporter to ascertain why he was verbally attacking the victim. His response was that, the gentleman used to insult Nana during the campaign.
I find his reason for his violent conduct totally unacceptable. Nana does not need this. He has in his acceptance speech called on all of us to work together to win the general elections.
What people said about Nana in the past in my opinion doesn't not matter. In intra Party,electioneering campaign all over the world, contestants and their supporters step on esch others toes and mend their differences after the contest. Even in the most advanced democracies, internal elections sometimes turns sour. What is important is that we should all embrace each in a spirit of brotherliness and for the good of the NPP. We can only win if we are genuinely united and work as a team. That's why I danced my heart out last night with one Hajia Fati who verbally assaulted me without mercy on daily basis for working for Kwabena as an assistant. If you are a genuine Nana 'supporter', your job now is to reach out to those who did not support him in the contest and even beyond. Elections are won in greater numbers.
I have started talking to my friends in the NDC to see reason to support Nana Addo.
I encourage all those who supported Alan and wish to work for the NPP and our Presidential candidate to be confident and come forward. Nana is now owned by all of us. It matters not whether you supported him or not. In fact Nana's ownership transcends the boundaries of the NPP. No person or group of persons can claim ownership of our Presidential candidate. He is my personal friend and I am very clear about who Nana is and what he stands for. He has big heart and and extremely selfless. He is now leads the NPP and will not discriminate against any body in our forward match. If you feel intimidated or insecure as a former Alan supporter, you can personally contact persons like Gabby, Bumty, Kabila or myself or members of the Steering Committee; you will be offered space to work for our Party.
We all have a duty to protect the good name and unity of our Party per article 3 of the NPP constitution. Let's be decorous in our disagreements and work harder and in unison to defeat this incompetent government.
Nana has been given yet another responsibility to hold our flag into the 2016 polls and we must all do our utmost to support him. He is a good man and will make a good President.
Ghana needs him to repair the damage inflicted on the country by President Mahama and his cohorts.
God bless our Party and homeland Ghana.
