Reverend. John Kwame Kodua, one of the five presidential aspirants of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has advised the party’s delegates not to vote for monetary gains in the forth-coming delegates’ conference.
He said they should rather vote with their conscience and choose a candidate who would unite all the supporters of the party.
He said the party needed a “spiritual developed leader” to lead them to defeat the National Democratic Congress (NDC), in the 2012 Presidential and Parliamentary elections.
Rev. Kodua gave the advice when he addressed delegates of the party at separate functions at Abetifi, Mpraeso and Nkawkaw, as part of his campaign tour to the Eastern Region.
He advised supporters of the party to bury their differences and unite, to ensure total victory in the forth-coming general elections, adding that, the party would be doomed forever if they failed to win the 2012 general elections.
The presidential aspirant said in the year 2000, all the candidates, including himself, who contested the party’s presidential primaries were given cabinet ministerial positions,
He said he was the only one who did not get any appointment, but he did not leave the party and promised to support any candidate elected to lead them.
The campaign chairman of the candidate, Mr Kwame Adu, said the role of the polling station executives in the party was very significant, during and after election, but they are neglected by the leaders of the party after winning the election.
He gave the assurance that Rev. Kodua would reward them when given the nod to lead the party.
Mr Adu advised supporters of the various presidential aspirants to unite and give the needed support to any candidate who would be elected to lead the party at the August 7 delegates’ conference of the party.
