President Nana Akufo-Addo has told the newly-elected national executives of the New Patriotic Party that the governing party can only break the eight-year power-swing cycle if they work together as a team.
In a message on Facebook, Mr Akufo-Addo said: â€œI congratulate warmly, the new National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Mr Stephen Ayesu Ntim, and the other national officers who were elected at the partyâ€™s National Delegatesâ€™ Conference, held at the Accra Sports Stadium, on Saturday, 16th July 2022â€.
â€œOnce again, we, in the NPP, have demonstrated that we are the party that is committed to the tenets of multi-party democracyâ€, adding: â€œWe have elected a team of officers with a deep attachment to the timeless values and principles of the Party and its tradition, and who will steer affairs of the party for the next four yearsâ€.
The new officers, Mr Akufo-Addo noted, â€œare the national face and voice of our party, and they will set the tone and the pace of our election campaign in 2024â€.
â€œAs I indicated on Saturday, the NPP is at its best when we are united and operating as a focused entityâ€, he reiterated.
â€œI, thus, urge all in the NPP to unite strongly behind our new national officers, for it is only by working together that we can â€œBreak the Eightâ€, and help deliver progress and prosperity to the Ghanaian peopleâ€, he added.
The president also said the Electoral Commission is to be commended for conducting and supervising Saturday’s elections, and â€œI thank the media for providing extensive coverage of the proceedingsâ€.
â€œMay God bless the New Patriotic Party and us all, and may God bless our homeland Ghana, and make her great and strongâ€.
