“I congratulates all the MMDCE nominees and wish to admonish the good supporters of our great NPP to unconditionally accept, respect and uphold the well-thought through choices of the President,”Honourable Paul TwumBarimah stated.
Speaking in an interview with the media, honourableTwumBarimah also commended the President for taking his time to select the best candidates out of the best for the various positions. He expressed delight at the way the president’s appointees have been accepted by the rank-and-file of the NPP with the exception of few unfortunate cases.
Mr. TwumBarimah indicated the party was solidly behind the appointees and urged them to make the president and the nation proud by working harder to promote the president’s agenda of promoting freedom in development.
He also admonished the teaming supporters of the party to accept, respect and uphold the President’s nominees and rally behind them during the assembly and metropolitan elections that would be conducted for their approval.
