Although Ghana went to the polls a few months ago and will not do so until December 2024, the New Patriotic Party has initiated moves to energize, restructure and reposition the party for the task ahead in 2024.
The Party has deployed its executives on a nationwide tour aimed at connecting with the grassroots supporters of the party.
The tour is being led by the National Chairman Freddy Blay and General Secretary Freddy Blay.
Others include National 1st Vice-Chair, Rita Asobayire; National 3rd Vice-Chair, Omari Wadie; National Treasurer, Amankwa Yeboah; NationalOrganizer, Sammi Awuku; National Youth Organizer, Nana Boakye; National Nasara Coordinator, Abdul Aziz Futah; and the National Women’s Organizer, Kate Gyamfua.
The party explained in a statement copied to GhanaWeb that, “the nationwide working tour is also to afford the national [executive] an opportunity to listen and address the concerns of party grassroots, and also engage the structures of the party on ways…to enhance the party’s chances of breaking the 8-year-governance cycle”.
The tour started in the Greater Accra Region last Friday, where the national executives visited and interacted with party executives from 17 constituencies including Domeabra Obom, Bortianor Ngleshie Amanfro, Weija-Gbawe, Anya-Sowutuom, Okaikoi North, Okaikoi South, Okaikoi Central, Amasaman, Trobu, Ayawaso North, Ayawaso West, Ayawaso East, Ayawaso Central, Shai Osudoku, Adenta, Madina and Dome Kwabenya.
Also, in attendance at these ‘touching base’ meetings were the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) and MPs for the respective districts and constituencies that were visited.
The national executives were accompanied by the Greater Accra Regional executive of the party led by Divine Agorhum, the Regional Chairman.
From the Greater Accra Region, the National Executives are expected to proceed to the Ashanti Region, and then to the Ahafo, Bono and Bono East Regions in phase one of the tour.
