…Govt Appointees Admonished
The Greater Accra Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Divine Otoo Agorhom, has implored government appointees to do away with attitudes that seem to be derailing the party’s electoral chances in 2020. According to him, attitudes like selfishness, pride and arrogance should no more be allowed to have a place within the party next year.
The Chairman was giving his welcome address at the party’s Annual Delegates Conference held at the Trade Fair Center in Accra yesterday.
The conference, he said, was to celebrate achievements of the party whilst taking stock of what remains to be done to ensure that the NPP stays in power.
He noted that the NPP tried to retain power in 2008 but failed to do so, but however making it in 2016 with God’s guidance and the will expressed by the good people of Ghana.
He averred that years that preceded the 2016 elections have been fraught with issues of selfishness, pride and arrogance on the part of government appointees which have risen to complaints and murmuring within the party.
According to him, the NPP took its root from the Danquah Bussia tradition and it behoves on all especially, government officials to ensure that the share of government benefits as many people so that as many as possible would work for the party to stay in power.
He noted that at the time the John Mahama led NDC was pursuing the NPP to return Ghanaians to economic slavery, it took the discerning Ghanaians to read between the lines, weigh the policies of the NDC and what the NPP promised to deliver and made a choice.
He said, developments under the NPP so far has shown that the people of Ghana have made the right choice to elect Akufo-Addo as president of the country, stressing that government has fulfilled majority of its campaign promises and would ensure the manifestation of all of the policies of voted to retain power.
But he said, “that will be possible if we do away with all these attitudes; pride, arrogance, selfishness, complaining, murmuring and other attitudes that we ourselves, we know are destroying us.”
He however pointed out that President Akufo-Addo is leading us to the Promised Land of Ghana Beyond Aid. “We are on track,” he said.
