The presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Mahamudu Bawumia is optimistic that the party will recapture majority of the orphan seats after holding successful parliamentary primaries for those constituencies.
The party elected parliamentary candidates for 111 orphan constituencies in a generally peaceful exercise across Ghana on Saturday.
After the internal contest, Bawumia wrote on Facebook that “I am very impressed by the quality of candidates chosen to represent our party in these constituencies… I am confident that we will succeed in securing these seats through our sustained unity and collective efforts.”
He called on the party to remain determined and united in the lead up to the 2024 elections.
“With great determination and collective working spirit, we are going to win a majority of these orphan seats during the 2024 general election. To keep our momentum and to accomplish victory, we need to stay united from the grassroots down to the highest levels of leadership,” Bawumia said.
Below is the full statement:
I commend the New Patriotic Party (NPP) national leadership, particularly for supervising very peaceful and transparent primaries in the orphan constituencies. On behalf of the party, I offer my sincere congratulations to all our newly elected parliamentary candidates for our beloved NPP in the just-ended Parliamentary primaries in the orphan constituencies across the country. I would like you to remember that your victory isn’t the end, but the beginning of a new chapter of service and responsibility. To win the confidence of the Ghanaian people, we must adopt humility and grace. Special thanks to the aspirants who couldn’t make it for your determination and courage. The party is indebted to you.
Our party’s preparedness and determination to take a majority of these seats from the National Democratic Congress has been definitively demonstrated by today’s events. With the upcoming 2024 general elections in sight, I am very impressed by the quality of candidates chosen to represent our Party in these constituencies. In the coming election, I am confident that we will succeed in securing these seats through our sustained unity and collective efforts.
With great determination and collective working spirit, we are going to win a majority of these orphan seats during the 2024 general election. To keep our momentum and to accomplish victory, we need to stay united from the grassroots down to the highest levels of leadership.
I also offer sincere thanks to party executives at all levels for their meticulous organization and successful elections.
For us in the NPP, we have a fundamental commitment to our goal of breaking the 8 in 2024 and I call upon all dedicated party members and supporters to step up their efforts to achieve this noble objective.
Together, we are going to continue in our quest for a brighter Ghana’s future with unshakable determination, unity in purpose, and determinedness. It is possible!
God bless the New Patriotic Party
God bless Ghana.
