NPP Chairman for C/R Cautions Potential Parliamentary Aspirants


Mr Robert Kutin Jnr. The Central Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has cautioned prospective parliamentary aspirants to desist from campaigning behind the scenes as it could attract sanctions.

He hinted that nominations for parliamentary primaries have not been opened by the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the NPP and any member who will flout these rules and regulations could be disqualified.

Mr Kutin Jnr gave the warning at the inauguration of the Nasara Youth and Women’s wings for the Gomoa Central Constituency of the Party at Gomoa Ekwamkrom in the Gomoa Central District.

He said at the moment the national and regional executives recognised only the sitting members of Parliament (MPs) and not those who were secretly aspiring to contest.

This, he noted, was to ensure that sanity prevailed in the forth- coming parliamentary primaries.

The Regional Chairman, therefore, warned that any polling station executive who leads any parliamentary aspirant to campaign would not be spared and urged them to rally behind the MPs and district chief executives to make the Party stronger in the Central Region.

Mr Kutin said the Party must be considered supreme in all decisions and urged prospective aspirants not to create problems at the constituencies to enable the NPP to win massively in the 2020 general election.

He disclosed that the inauguration of the wings would be held in all constituencies to revive activities at the polling stations, adding that the NPP would need to intensify work with all seriousness to win more supporters.

Mr Kutin said the regional executives would soon embark on auditing of the work of polling station executives since 2016 to access the strength of the Party.

He said after inaugurating the various wings the regional executives would push for an agenda to redouble its strategies to defeat NDC again in 2020.

He commended Mrs Naana Eyiah Quansah, the MP, and Mr Benjamin Kojo Otoo, the District Chief Executive (DCE) for Gomoa Central for their hardwork that had transformed the Constituency.

Mrs Quansah expressed confidence and trust in the three wings and urged members to work as a team to increase the votes attained in the 2016 elections.

The MP urged the supporters to bury their differences and build on the good economic policies and programmes the Government was pursuing to change the voting pattern in the Gomoa Central Constituency.

She said she had used her share of the MP’s Common Fund to support communities in the Constituency in education, health, trade and apprentiship in dressmaking to make life better for them.

Again 200 widows have been selected to be assisted with financial support, cloths, education of their children to help improve their living conditions.

Mr Otoo, for his part, said 200 graduates had been employed by the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) and more than 46 youths also recruited into the Community Policing as part of government’s flagship programme to create jobs and wealth.

He said under the two years administration of the Akufo-Addo-led Government, infrastructural development had taken place at all communities in the Gomoa Central District and asked the people to lend their support to make it succeed.
