The New Patriotic Party (NPP) wishes to assure its supporters and all Ghanaians that the party remains focused and united behind its necessary ongoing reorganization process, as it prepares towards the 2016 general elections and that no volumes of poisonous propaganda can hide the truth that ours is a party in good shape, preparing to be in a better shape.
