An aspiring National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Professor Christopher Ameyaw-Akumfi has said his vision for the party is to ensure strong unity, discipline and high commitment by members.
These are the factors that will ensure the party remains stronger in the political affairs of the country, he said.
The former Minister of Education under the Kuffuor administration recounted that the NPP lost the 2008 elections as well as several parliamentary seats in the 2020 polls due to the lack of unity and commitment.
With the benefit of experience, he said, the party should be able to address these happenings. He believes he has the ability to unite the NPP for resounding victory.
Speaking on the Pae Mu Ka Show on Onua TV with host Yaa Titi Okrah, Professor Ameyaw-Ekumfi said, when asked for his vision that “Party unity. If there is unity in the party, all of us in the party will move in one direction. We lost in the 2008 general elections and also the number of seats we lost in the 20202 elections because there was no unity.
“In areas where there were imposition of parliamentary candidates we suffered for that and so if we deal with this situation that will not happen,” he said.
He added ” the second area is discipline. Discipline is critical in the party. the agitations we see in the party are because of indiscipline, the party has rules and everybody must obey.
“Finally commitment to the party.”
