Alan Cash And Nana Addo
Alan Cash And Nana Addo

Yesterday Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen who also responds to Alan Cash, took an important step when he paid a courtesy call on the man with whom he vied for the most coveted position in the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The trip to the residence of Nana Akufo-Addo at Nima, Accra, in the company of the cream of his campaign team, soothed the pain of party supporters who wondered what the aftermath of the heated campaign preceding last Saturday?s elections would be.

Now that all is over and Nana Akufo-Addo leads the party into the 2016 polls all eyes are transfixed on the NPP to determine whether there would be sincere handshakes and the walking of talks towards party unity.

What commenced at the Efua Sutherland Children?s Park when the two contestants threw their weight behind the newly elected flag bearer has solidified into visits of reaffirmation as undertaken earlier by Francis Addai-Nimoh Monday morning and now Alan Kyerematen.

The excitement of NPP supporters in the face of the developments knows no bounds. They are discussing it and expect more in the form of sincerity.

In Ghana political rivalry and competition, especially within the same grouping, are often characterized by acrimonious exchanges, especially among supporters of frontline candidates.

The latest internal competition in the NPP generated so much heat that it would take maturity and sincerity on the part of those who competed to restore the level of unity that can unseat a stubborn ruling party ? which has no room for decency and political ethics as far as elections are concerned.

Alan Kyerematen and Addai-Nimoh have shown the way for party supporters to follow ? a gesture which redefines how internal competition in our political parties is to be undertaken.

When this level of decency is achieved local democracy would have taken another step towards the highest notch in our political development.

Alan and Addai-Nimoh have stretched their hands in following the tradition of the NPP regarding competition and cooperation.

The competition now over, the cooperation stage has reared its head. We have no doubt in our minds that given the state of degeneration of our country?s economy and the desperate need for change of the status quo ? with the NPP leading the charge and being the largest opposition political grouping ? it cannot afford to disappoint Ghanaians.

With an unclenched fist of Nana and the stretched hands of Addai-Nimoh and Alan Kyerematen, the message is clear that Ghanaians in economic bondage can look up to a bright light at the end of the tunnel.

Let all parties with a stake in the NPP?s fortunes manifest utmost sincerity in their political business so that at the end of the day Ghanaians can have an alternative grouping take over the helm and present alternative programmes that can reverse the tide of socio-economic decay in which the country is embroiled.

It is instructive listening to Nana tell Alan Kyerematen, ?We can do it.? Indeed, he and the rest of the NPP leadership can do it when sincerity underpins their political businesses.
