The NPP Northern Regional Organizer hopeful, Alhaji Mohammed Bashiru Red has implored delegates in the upcoming Regional Executives Elections to vote for people who are capable of re-energizing and reinvigorating the party to victory in the 2020 elections.
According to Mr. Red, the chance for the New Patriotic Party to win power again come 2020 would depend on the caliber of persons chosen to man the party’s activities at the Constituency, Regional and National levels.
Mr. Red who was speaking in an interview to press in his residence in Tamale noted that “As a party in power, we need committed people who has the party at heart and can do everything possible to ensure NPP maintained power come 2020”
“At this times of our party, we shouldn’t give chance for people who are fighting for positions because of their personal gains but people who loved the party even when in opposition” he added
He mentioned the likes of himself and others who has been with the party for decades providing security and protecting the interest of the party in the region.
Four persons are currently vying for the Northern Regional Organizer of the party, including the incumbent Alhaji Rashid Salifu COP, Mr. Peter Wuni (Deputy National Director of NADMO), Alhaji Bashiru Mohammed, aka Bashiru Red and one Mr. Oluu.
Mr. Bashiru Red who acted as a director of operations for the NPP in region for years now urged delegates of the party to vote for regional organizer who has suffered and work hard for the party even in opposition.
The ardent NPP member said, unity at the grassroot would be his top most priority.
The NPP Northern Regional Organizer hopeful advised delegates to show love for the NPP and be wary of people who were being influenced by certain political authorities and manipulated to satisfy individual interest at the expense of the party.
“Delegates should not allow money to influence their choice, but use the competencies and capabilities of the prospective candidates as a yardstick in determining who would lead the NPP ” he stressed
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) would be holding its internal executive elections to choose people who will manage the activities of the party in the next four years.
The delegates conference which is scheduled to take place in April 2018 is to elect capable men and women whom they deem fit to man the party at the both National, Regional and Constituency levels
Already, the party has elected its constituency and polling station executive while waiting for National and Regional.
