Buaben Asamoa to NPP delegates: dress in party colours, not candidates’ T-shirts

The NPP elects national executive officers this weekend as the party takes stock at a conference which coincides with its 30th anniversary

The communications director of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Yaw Buaben Asamoa, has called on delegates and other guests at the party’s annual conference to dress in party paraphernalia and not that of candidates, in order to forge unity. 

The NPP elects national executive officers this weekend as it takes stock at a conference which coincides with the partys 30th anniversary.

Asamoa said NPP members are poised to work together for national development.

“We have also ensured that we have a very modest in-house campaign and all our candidates have been generous. And they have respected the party because they respect and love the organisation they seek to lead,” the former MP told Asaase News

“And therefore they’ve restrained in their campaigning, making the approach in-house as it ought to be, and as we are aspiring for.”

Telling the world who we are

He added: “It’s only the NPP colours that you see in the stadium, and we expect attendees to be in the NPP colours not candidates’ colours. It’s all part of the communication and we are communicating to the world who we are, what we do and how we do it.

“This, in a nutshell, is the NPP at conference electing leaders for the next four years.”

The theme for the conference is “Holding Together, Working Together”.

“We have our party congress and we are defining who we are all the time,” Asamoa said. “The NPP is in government to serve the people of Ghana in ways that benefit families.

“And part of our process of service is to renew our party regularly, every four years, and this is a scheduled renewal. It has coincided with our 30th anniversary and also, of course, one with the global challenges that have led us to seeking collaborative support from the IMF.

“So, we thought that this was the time to demonstrate that, as a political party, we are holding together with the government and the people of Ghana, and we are going to work together to move forward and grow even bigger,” Asamoa said.
