One of the contenders for the New Patriotic Party’s flagbearer-ship slots, Alan Kyerematen, says the party can win the 2016 election if polling station officers play lead roles in the campaign.
Speaking at a rally at Dzodze in the Volta Region, Mr. Kyerematen said:
“If we want to win election 2016 elections, I bet you, let’s make our polling station officers the front-liners of our campaign and it will be a one touch victory for the NPP”.
The former Trade Minister bemoaned the situation where the party sidelined polling station officers in the 2008 and 2012 elections.
He pledged not to form a parallel campaign team but instead, use the party structures to ensure that the NPP wins election 2016 with an intensified grassroots mobilization strategy.
He assured delegates of his preparedness to provide them with the logistics in a timely manner.
Former Regional Minister, Kofi Dzamesi charged delegates to vote for Alan as he has the master key to bring the party to power and transform Ghana into an industrialized nation.
Mr. Dzamesi said, "Ghanaians are saying they love NPP. They are fed up with the mismanagement of National Democratic Congress (NDC) but they want the NPP to present their choice; Alan John Kyerematen because he is humble and has what it takes to create jobs for the youth of Ghana".
The NPP will go to polls on October 18, to elect a flagbearer for the 2016 election. Alan calls on delegates to vote for him, Number 3 on the Ballot Paper.
