The Director of Programs at the vice president’s office, Salam Mustapha, says the New Patriotic Party (NPP) can will a third consecutive term and break the eight-year jinx. 

This, he said, would only be achieved on the collective efforts by all the ranks of the party, right from the grassroots to the top hierarchy, to put their boots on the ground and propagate the good deeds of the party. 

He was speaking at the University of Health and Allied Sciences, branch of the party’s Tertiary Student Confederacy of NPP in Ho.

“Let us continue to work for the party, we will break the eight, but it will take our collective efforts to achieve this”, he said.

Mr Mustapha said it behoves the party to project and propagate the achievement of the Akufo-Addo-led government. 

He explained that because government had dissolved the Unemployed Graduate Association by created jobs through NABCO and employing the backlog of graduates from health institutions since 2012 have employed. 

“The NPP is the party of hope for the youth and remains the party that can develop this country. Any mistake that will make that brings the NDC back, it means that we are going backwards,” he stressed. 

He further said that the NPP government is on course in fixing Ghana.

The Volta Regional Chairman of the Party, Makafui Woanyah, who schooled the students on the party’s ideologies, said the NPP is a liberal and property owing democrat. 

This is he said is evident in the NPP implementing social policies and interventions such as the National Health Insurance Scheme, Free Maternal Healthcare, Ghana School Feeding Programme, Free Senior High School policy among others. 

“As liberals and property owing democrats, what we stand for is Private Enterprise, protection of private business and property by law.

“We believe that the success of the individual is the success of the state and that; you can create safety nets and adopt special interventions to cushion the poor and vulnerable in society.”

Mr Woanyah further indicated that the NPP believes that the core business of the government is to promote and facilitate the growth of the private sector by providing the relevant infrastructure and “enabling environment through effective and efficient public service”.

He, therefore, encouraged the student to study and share the “liberal neo-macertile philosophy and principles that constitute the ideological foundation of the New Patriotic Party.”

The meeting brought together various party functionaries who took turns to address the students.

One message that ran through was a call on the student to remain resolute in serving the NPP and take their lessons seriously.
