The Director of Communications of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Yaw Buaben Asamoa, has provided information on what his party has been up to indicating that strengthening internal networks and building capacity to be able to fulfill their mandate to the citizenry has been their primary concern.
The other agenda he said is to embark on a membership drive.
He was providing a summary of what his party has been doing following his absence from the media space for a while.
Speaking to Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana on Thursday, July 29, 2021, the former Member of Parliament for the Adenta Constituency noted “It is about the New Patriotic Party, it is about engaging the public, it is about what we the NPP is doing, and can do projecting into the future.”
“Clearly, this first seven months after the win has not been easy for the party, and the government as a result of peoples’ expectations being far higher than the government which is exiting COVID than deliver easily. So it been about engaging ourselves quietly and ensuring that we are putting in place measures to ensure that the party lives up to its responsibility,” he stressed.
Mr. Buaben Asamoa also indicated that the governing party is targeting enrolling new members.
“We are going to have a membership drive. It’s on the cards. It’s about actually starting. The membership drive, what we expect to happen is that we want all sympathizers, adherents, people who believe in the NPP and want to be members of the NPP to write their names and deliver of their particulars and registers at polling station level,” he emphasized.
He explained that the polling station membership exercise is the least of the NPP setup adding “And then from there, you get on to the actual register of the party by getting yourself a party card. And then in January, we will start elections to fill the polling station positions.”
“Five per polling station and eligibility to contest as a polling station executive and to vote for somebody who is contesting will be based on having a card,” he stated.
