Akatsi South: NPP holds Annual Delegates’ Conference

Over 400 New Patriotic Party (NPP) stalwarts in the Akatsi South constituency in the Volta Region on Sunday participated in the party’s annual delegates’ conference held at Akatsi.

The Akatsi South constituency NPP chairman, Koffitse Martin Nyahe, in his welcome address reiterated the need for all party aficionados to have trust in President Akufo Addo as he is ready to fulfil all campaign promises.

“I have no doubt that the promises we gave to Ghanaians will be made evident and as a result, we will keep the party in power for years to come, ” he said.

In his quest to bring unity among party faithfuls, Mr Nyahe openly declared his maximum support to the President’s DCE nominee who was denied approval by the assembly members a few months ago.

The Constituency Secretary, Mawuli Agos Klu in a special constituency report, outlined several challenges confronting the party in the constituency.

Nevertheless, he was optimistic that the unity among them cannot be put into jeopardy as seen in other parties.

He charged delegates to maintain the confidence and the zeal that brought the party to power.

The Volta Regional Coordinator of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), Mr. R.K Divine Bosson expressed his profound gratitude to all party members for their unflinching support for the NPP.

That he said, will bring the changes that Ghanaians were yearning for. Mr Bosson, in recounting what he referred to as the gratuitous, unacceptable high rate of corruption caused by the previous NDC Mahama-led administration, revealed that there are about 8000 employees working at NADMO alone and that some of the names cannot be traced by face.

“Before we left office, we had about only three thousand workers at NADMO, but the number we are seeing now during these past eight years under NDC administration shows that there are ghost names all over,” he added.

A member of the economic management team from the office of the Vice President, Dr. Samuel Frimpong also rebutted claims by the NDC on the increasing dismissal of public workers in the country.

“We are not dismissing any worker off his post, these names are ghost names and they must be taken out.”

Dr Frimpong charged the participants to appeal to the assembly members to endorse the DCE nominee for rapid development in the District.

According to him, failure to do so would deny the district its fair share of the national cake.

He said several ongoing projects are already in gear and that the One-District-One-Factory programme, and the  Zongo Development Fund have already been given the green light.

“The President has released an amount of GHS 19.5 million for the Zongo Development Project,” he revealed.

On his part, the DCE nominee for Akatsi South, Mr Leo Nelson Adzidogah called for an end to any blame game, promising to work with constituency executives and the assembly members for an open, transparent, and accessible leadership to all.

“One key programme that I will bring on board for all to benefit is this Community Initiated Development Project- CIDEP, and this could only work if I am confirmed as your DCE,” he appealed.

The congress held at the Akatsi Perfect Peace Hotel brought together all the constituency executives, five members from the Council of Elders and 485 delegates from 28 electoral areas in the Akatsi South constituency.
