UFP declares support for NPP in 2020 elections

Some leading members and supporters of the United Front Party (UFP) have declared their support for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) ahead of the December 7 elections.

According to them, the declaration followed a study conducted by the research department of the party, which came out with a report that the NPP is the party that needs the support of Ghanaians to continue to roll out innovative social interventions policies for the benefit of all.

At a press conference jointly addressed by three leading members of the party at Suame, near Kumasi, they urged all members and Ghanaians to rally behind Akufo-Addo and the NPP.

They also advised members to vote massively for the NPP in the December 7 elections for the party to continue its national transformation agenda.

2016 Vice Presidential Candidate of UFP, Mr. David Essie Bunya, said all party members were in support of the decision to back NPP to win the 2020 elections.

“The able leadership of the party has organized all founding members, executive members and all supporters and sympathizers of our great party, United Front Party (UFP) to declare our unwavering support to Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP in the next general elections on December 7”, he stated at the conference.

National Organizer of UFP, Mr. Alo Nuhu, said the disqualification of the party in the 2020 general elections was due to the negligence of the leadership.

“Nonetheless, we would not keep our broader support base throughout the country as floating voters but will channel our votes to the appropriate quarters to push the development agenda of Ghana forward”, he emphasized.

Mr. Nuhu stressed the need for the UFP to not entrust more than one executive power into the hands of one individual in the party, adding that a chairman of the party should remain a chairman and not run another office concurrently.

2012 Vice Presidential Candidate of UFP, Mr. Fred Osei-Agyen, said all the members were aware of the various developmental and social intervention programmes of the NPP.

“We all can smell, hear, touch, feel and above all see the numerous social intervention policies in the country.

“Look at the free SHS which has benefited every home in Ghana. The 1D1F also visible, the planting for food and jobs, free water, free electricity, reintroduction of Nursing and Teacher training allowance, removing the incubation period of NHIS and even integrating NHIS card to the National ID card”, he pointed out.

Mr. Osei-Agyen said UFP has no hesitation whatsoever, to recommend Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP to the good people of Ghana ahead of the polls.
