THE Nhyiaeso Constituency of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has by acclamation elected majority of the constituency executives to run the party for the next four years.
At the constituency delegates conference in Kumasi, officials of the Electoral Commission who supervised the exercise had very little work to do as almost all the candidates were returned unopposed.
It was the first time that any constituency executives in the region had been elected unopposed since the party started its constituency elections, something the Party Chairman, Mr George Kofi Agyei, described as a testimony of the unity of purpose within the constituency.
With the exception of the Youth Organiser, Mr Ernest Dwemoh, and the Second Vice- Chairman, Mr Augustine Mensah Bonsu, all the other executives were re-elected for a second term.
Those re-elected for a second term included the Chairman, Mr Agyei, who is a businessman; Ms Dianalove Opoku, First Vice-Chairperson; Mr Dominic Agyemang Opambuo, Secretary; Mr Stephen Oti Appiah, Assistant Secretary; Mr Kwasi Kankam, Organiser: Ms Helena Badu Fofie, Women’s Organiser, and Mr Kwame Owusu Donkor, Treasurer. The Regional Secretary of the NPP, Mr Sam Cudjoe, swore in the executives.
Addressing the delegates after the exercise, the Constituency Chairman, Mr Agyei, said the Nhyiaeso Constituency of the party had blazed the trail for others to follow. He added that with unity there was no way the NPP would not get about 98 per cent of the votes in the constituency in the 2012 elections.
Mr Agyei promised that he and his colleagues would work hard to ensure that the NPP achieved its aim in 2012. He said Ghanaians had realised that the NDC had nothing good to offer the nation and were ready to vote them out in the next elections.
He said most of the people in the country were crying for the NPP to relieve them of the problems the NDC had created. “But coming back will also hinge on how well we organise ourselves, and avoid of petty squabbles”, he added.
Mr Agyei was happy about the good relationship between the Member of Parliament (MP) of the area, Dr Richard Anane, the party members as well as the entire people in the constituency and said “this is a plus for the party.”
He stated that the so-called Akufo-Addo-Alan Kyerematen divide was non-existent in the constituency, and expressed the hope that the same situation would prevail in other constituencies.
