A Founding member of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) Mr. George Ayisi Boateg has observed that supporters of the party at the grassroots are worried over current recent developments in the party.
“The morale of members is down and if care is not taken this might affect us”, he observed.
According to him, members of the NPP and Ghanaians in general cannot afford another term under the current government the need for the party to immediately resolve its internal issues and brace itself for power.
“Everyone is yearning for change and that change can only come if we put our house together”, he noted.
The hardships under the current dispensation he indicated is enough justification for Ghanaians to mandate the NPP to liberate them from the shackles of poverty which bedeviled the country since the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) took over the reins of this country.
He warned that the quest to unseat the current government will be a mirage if the party as well its supporters fail to make conscious efforts in closing ranks and working together with a common objective of winning the 2016 elections.
“Let us put this rumpus and misunderstanding behind us and market Nana Addo well to win power”. He remarked.
Mr. Ayisi Boateng suggested that the flagbearer constitutes his own campaign team to work for him regardless of the party’s structures to ensure that the journey to the 2016 is smoothened.
He said the issue of a separate campaign team had nothing to do with trust as it is a practice seen all over the world and urged the NPP flagbearer to go ahead to adopt this strategy.
“Leave out all executives from his team and create an independent / individual team to work for his interest. Executives who wish to join can come on board”, he explained
He however described as untrue claims the NPP is noted for violence taking into account what had been witnessed in recent times.
“If it comes to violence, NPP does not come near its political opponents”
