After touring the Greater Accra Region on Monday to monitor the ongoing limited voter registration exercise, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Wednesday continued the monitoring exercise by visiting a few constituencies in the Central Region.

The brief tour of the Central Region saw Nana Akufo-Addo visit five registration centres in the Awutu Senya East, Gomoa East and Mfantseman constituencies.

At the Odupong-Kpehe/Kasoa Urban Council registration centre, located in Kasoa in the Awutu Senya East Constituency, polling agents of the New Patriotic Party told Akufo-Addo that the registration exercise had so far been smooth. According to them, 87 voters were registered on Monday, whilst 55 were registered on TuesdayContinue reading


Kufuor Ditches Alan

Former President John Kufuor does not support any of the Candidates vying for the Flagbearer slot of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), party Chairman Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey has said.

Mr Kufuor has always been alleged to support twice-failed flagbearer aspirant Alan Kyeremanten against twice-defeated NPP flagbearer Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

The former President’s alleged support for the former Trades Minister and failed Director-General aspirant of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) has led to factionalism (Kufuor and Akufo-Addo camps) in the party, according to pollster Ben Ephson. Continue reading

Akufo-Addo To Lead NPP In 2016

A survey of New Patriotic Party’s newly elected polling and constituency elections shows that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is certain to clinch the NPP’s 2016 presidential ticket.

With the ticket virtually in his pocket, Nana is sure to face John Dramani Mahama, the President and the National Democratic Congress’ most likely candidate for 2016, for the third time in a national presidential contest.

Interviews with NPP new executives in six regions – Western, Central, Ashanti, Greater Accra, Volta and Brong Ahafo – show that Nana Addo is the overwhelming favourite of those who will constitute the NPP presidential electorate college this year.

In the Greater Accra Region, over 80% of newly elected polling and constituency executives interviewed said they will vote for Nana Addo if the NPP presidential primaries were held today. Continue reading

“We Cannot Compromise On The Unity Of The Party” Akufo-Addo advises.

The two time presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has called on members of the Party to stay united as they compete among themselves. In a statement released on 8 January 2014 and posted on his Facebook page, Nana Akufo-Addo called on members of the Party to see the internal elections as a necessary reorganisation process, which the Party must go through. He urged members to keep the contests clean and convivial so that thereafter “we can all get back together, work together and secure victory in 2016.”

Akufo-Addo, who is resting in London, took the opportunity to congratulate the newly elected polling station and constituency executives, and urged all party members to work hard to win power and be declared as winners in 2016. A copy of the statement is below:

In the last two months, our party, the New Patriotic Party, has held elections in some 26,000 polling stations across the country, followed by constituency executives elections in most places. With very few notable exceptions, the exercise has been successful. The generally peaceful, united, free and fair manner in which the polls were conducted served as an encouraging testimony to the NPP’s democratic culture and a neat exhibition of the spirit of oneness that the NPP needs. It must continue and we must consciously let peace and unity within the NPP serve as our constant guide.

I congratulate all members of the party who participated in the various elections held so far. For those who lost, I wish you better luck next time and, more importantly, I urge you to stay fully engaged in our efforts to reorganise the party for the general elections of 2016. For those who won, please reach out to bring on board every member and supporter of the party in our efforts towards a strong and effective campaign for a clear and resounding victory in 2016. We need unity now to reinforce our front to offer a more attractive and competent alternative to the people of Ghana.

I will urge that any issues arising from these party elections be resolved amicably and expeditiously in a fair and transparent manner, using the existing internal party procedures. Protecting the integrity of the organization, whiles addressing all legitimate issues, is the way to go. The NPP has an enviable democratic tradition of encouraging free and lively competition, and exchange of ideas and views among members. Let us protect and project this tradition by keeping our competing or opposing views on the way forward decent and constructive.

My message to the rank and file of the party is that we must never lose focus of what it is that is at stake: the destiny of our dear country and how to enhance the lives of ordinary Ghanaians. The task ahead is to win power and be so declared in 2016 so that we can give the people of Ghana the governance, which they deserve.

Let us stay united even as we compete amongst ourselves. We cannot compromise on the unity of the party if we are not to compromise on the victory that we seek. We must, therefore, see these internal contests as but a necessary reorganisation process that we must first go through. Let us keep it clean and convivial so that we can all get back together, to think together, work together and secure victory together in 2016.

Thank you.

EC files affidavits | Politics

The Electoral Commission (EC) has filed its affidavit in the presidential election petition.

The affidavits were sent to the court by Mr Amadu Sulley, a deputy Chairman of the Commission Tuesday afternoon.

Attached to the 15-paragraph affidavit included seven exhibits.

The Supreme Court had early on in the day adjourned hearing of the substantive Election Petition case following the insistence by the petitioners to be served with copies of the respondents affidavits as earlier directed by the court.

Even though EC has filed its affidavits in compliance to the court’s directive it is yet unclear if the petitioners could be served before hearing on Wednesday.

It is the administrative function of the court to serve the various parties with relevant documents.

The Court will continue hearing tomorrow.
