NPP appeals to losers to join campaign trail

Mr Jake Otanka Obetsebi-Lamptey, the National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has appealed to all losing candidates in the just ended parliamentary primaries to join the campaign trail to win back power in 2012.

He said the signs were clear that the NPP would win both the parliamentary and presidential elections come 2012 to continue the good policies and programmes started by former President John Agyekum Kufour.

He, therefore, called on all those who won the primaries to include the losers in their campaign in order to mobilize more support for the party.

Mr Obetsebi-Lamptey made the appeal when he addressed the media in Koforidua after a closed door meeting with all the elected parliamentary and losing candidates in the just ended parliamentary primaries.

He said considering what happened in the 2008 parliamentary primaries of the party which prompted most of the losers and some aggrieved supporters to contest as independent candidates, it was important to map strategies to correct those mistakes hence the “all hands on deck” nation wide tour by the Flag bearer.

Mr Obetsebi-Lamptey accused the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government of destroying all the good policies started by the NPP government between 2001 and 2008.

He appealed to Ghanaians to reject the NDC and bring back the NPP to save them from the high rate of poverty they were experiencing.

“If you see what is happening in the country it is clear that the President and the government had lost focus, vision and direction and if care is not taken to take them away in 2012, things will go from bad to worse,” he said.

Mr Obetsebi-Lamptey appealed to all NPP supporters to close their ranks, unite and not to let anything divide them from the main objective of wining power in 2012.
