Mr Joe Ghartey, New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Esikado Ketan, has called on members of the party to work harder to enable the party to win a third term to break the eight-year cycle to make history.
He said as a history making party in Ghana’s politics, the party would prosecute an effective and efficient political campaign in the run-up to the 2024 general election to win political power.
Mr Ghartey who is also former Attorney-General and Minister of Justice was speaking in an address read on his behalf at the inauguration of the Radford University College branch of the Tertiary Education Students Confederacy (TESCON) of the NPP in Accra.
It was on the theme, “Rebranding TESCON in Breaking The Eight: The Role of Radford Tesconites’.
‘I can assure party members and supporters that with hard work, the NPP will win a straight term to continue to steer the affairs of the nation, which will be a great shock to many Ghanaians’, he said.
The Member of Parliament said although some Ghanaians and political watchers did not believe that the NPP stood a chance to break the eight-year cycle, the party would ensure that the agenda to break the cycle became a reality.
Mr Ghartey said just as party members and sympathizers worked so hard to enable the party to win both the 2016 and 2020 general elections, they should do the same for the next general election to enable the party to make history.
Alhaji Osman, First Vice Chairman of the Ayawaso West Wougon Constituency, said the NPP government has performed creditably in all developmental spheres in the Constituency since 2017.
“When we are talking about development, no government can be compared to the NPP government in the constituency’, adding that, ‘we have done well, we will continue to do it and make sure those who have eyes will see it unless they don’t want to”.
He urged them to propagate the many developmental projects the party had brought to the constituency.
Miss Portia Adwoa Dede Aidoo, President of TESCON appealed to the members of the party to see themselves as belonging, to the elephant family and work in the interest of the party.
She entreated them to stand firm and defend the government as measures were being put in place to improve the economy to bring relief to ordinary Ghanaians
Miss Aidoo commended President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo for the numerous economic and social interventions he continue to make for the country.
