THE defeated contestant to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) regional secretary position, Mr J.K. Owusu-Boakye, aka General Abito, has promised to continue working for the party despite his inability to win the position.
He said it was the NPP and not the position that mattered most.
In an interview with Graphic Nsempa after the Ashanti Regional delegates conference in Kumasi, Mr Owusu-Boakye said the fight was against the NDC and not any individual person in the NPP.
He, therefore, gave an assurance that he would support the new regional executives to execute their agenda for the party.
He pointed out that the NDC had failed the nation but uprooting them in the next elections would demand commitment and hard work from all party members.
Mr Owusu-Boakye congratulated the new Regional Secretary, Mr Sam Payne on his victory in the polls.
He was confident of the abilities of Mr Payne to get things done in his new position.
He said the NPP must work to get at least 80 per cent of the votes in the 2012 elections in Ashanti.
This, he said, would help the party win the general election.
Mr Owusu-Boakye called for unity in the party instead of factionalism, which could destroy their chances towards winning the next elections.
