As the New Patriotic Party (NPP) holds its delegates conference, some aspirants vying for various positions are seen flouting the party’s directives by displaying their posters and banners at vantage points leading to the venue of the Conference in Cape Coast.
Banners and posters of a Senior Lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Dr. Richard Amoako Baah, who is vying for the position of National Chairman of the Party have been openly displayed at the venue.
Also the banner of Michael Omari Wadie is also strategically hanged at the median of the Cape Coast-Takoradi Highway, near Aggrey Memorial Senior High School and Pedu Junction, vying for the National First Vice Chairman slot.
That of the Communications Director of the Party in Chicago, USA, Richard Ahiagbah who is vying for the National General-Secretary, has his posters pasted along the road leading to the venue of the conference.
The Acting General-Secretary of the NPP, John Boadu, prior to the delegates conference at a press briefing in Accra, cautioned all aspirants to desist from displaying their campaign posters and banners at the national delegates conference of the party at the University of Cape Coast in the Central Region.
He said the Party reserved the right to sanction or reprimand anyone will flout the directive.
According to John Boadu, the Party has not lifted the ban on campaign while nominations for executive positions have not been opened.
The theme for the conference is: “NPP, Delivering on our Promises, our Roots, our Strength, our Future”.
The conference is being held in pursuance of Article 9(1) of the Party’s Constitution, which states that, “There shall be a National Delegates Conference which shall be the supreme governing body of the party”.
Earlier, to the conference, the party organised delegates conferences in all the 275 constituencies and 10 regions across the country.
About 5,500 delegates drawn across the country are attending the conference to deliberate on key issues arising from the party.
