Explaining the rationale behind the fund raising, the Constituency Treasurer of the Party, Mr. Fred Adu Twum, said it has become necessary for the Constituency branch of the NPP to reorganize some structures in the party and all these reorganization entails the use of money, hence the fund raising.
Mr. Adu Twum said, in –service training, workshops and other structures would be tackled to put the Constituency branch of the NPP on its feet to meet all challenges that would be faced during the2016 Presidential and Parliamentary Election Campaign and Elections.
Speaking at the function, Mr. Appiah Kubi, a researcher of the Ahafo Ano North Constituency Branch of the New Patriotic Party, said a lot of factors led the Party into opposition during the 2012 elections. He mentioned some of the factors as the inadequate training of the Party’s Polling Agents, failure of some Party faithful to cast their votes and failure of party agents at polling stations to be vigilant during the elections and appealed to all concerned to take into consideration measures that would be adopted to address these problems in the near future especially during the 2016 elections.
On the just ended limited voters registration exercise, Mr. Appiah Kubi said party agents who observed the exercise should gather courage to meet the committee that would be set up to investigate people whose registration were challenged to enable the country obtain a clean and credible voter register.
In an address, Mr. Kofi Poku Buabeng, the Constituency Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, called for clean politics to be exhibited by members of the party. He added that they should refrain from the politic of insults and let the people know what the party has done before and what it intends to do.
Mr. Opoku entreated party faithful to be circumspect in all their dealings so as to attract other people to the party since the strength of the party in the Constituency would be based on the number of eligible voters they can attract to vote during elections and urged all to rally behind the current party executives to enable them work assiduously to capture back the Constituency Parliamentary Seat.
