Chairman of Afigya-Kwabre South constituency of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), who is also chairman of the Ashanti Regional Chairmen Association, Odeneho Kwaku Appiah, has observed that the foundation of the ruling party in the Ashanti region has been weakened by the inordinate interest of a selfish few.
“Ashanti deserves a better deal than where we find ourselves! With God on our side, and all on board, together we shall restore our lost dignity, build up the necessary confidence and instil a sense of belonging in all,” Odeneho Kwaku Appiah fired up the party delegates in a Facebook post(published) he made on 21 October, last years, which is still circulating because of its relevance.
He wrote that “Since the days of our forefathers, when N.P.P. was formed in 1992, no single person in Ashanti Region N.P.P. did it alone or took credit for himself alone. Be it chairman Dr Herry Opoku, chairman Donkor Fordjour, chairman F.F. Anto and chairman Yaw Amankwah.”
They all, he intimated, joined forces together to achieve the goals of the party. “That is what we knew, and what l was groomed to understand. No one person can lift Ashanti NPP on his own. It’s about time we realised how our foundation in the NPP over the past few years has been weakened by a selfish few in the region and that leadership has literally been reduced to ridicule.”
One “mansm”, Odeneho Kwaku Appiah intoned, has cost the NPP a lot saying that “We have lost so many people from within and without the region over the past 4 years. Why should this be so? We need all on board. Can we do something different?”
Together we shall break the 8. God is our only hope.
