‘There is the need to focus on welfare of polling station executives to win elections’ – Prof Ameyaw-Akumfi

National Chairman hopeful of the New Patriotic Party Prof. Christopher Ameyaw-Akumfi has urged both executives and grassroot members of the NPP in Atebubu-Amantin Constituency to bury their differences and embrace unity towards a common cause of recapturing the lost parliamentary seat in the area.

The former Member of Parliament for the Techiman North Constituency stressed that there’s the need for the party to focus on the welfare of the polling station executives as well as maintain discipline in order to win back the seat as well as “break the 8”.

Prof. Ameyaw-Akumfi made this call while addressing some Regional, Constituency and Polling Station Executives and the teeming grassroot supporters at the party’s delegates conference in the Atebubu-Amantin Constituency.

The Conference as per article 7 (27) of the Party’s constitution was held in two zones at Akokoa in Amantin and Konkronpe in Atebubu respectively and under strict Covid-19 protocols.

“Majority of the people here are polling station executives and if we are going to win the next elections, majority of the work depends on you because you are the only people who have face to face encounter with the electorates. We need to start campaigning from today with support from the executives,” he said.

He further noted that “if we want to recapture the Atebubu seat in 2024, we have to start campaigning today and not wait until the last minute to start the campaign because we really need to win this seat and win the region as well”.
