Don't campaign – NPP warns flag bearer hopefuls

John Boadu

The General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr John Boadu, has entreated all flagbearer hopefuls of the party to stop campaigning ahead of time.

Speaking at the Ashanti regional branch of the party’s delegates conference held on Wednesday, 27 October 2021 at Achaakrom in the Ejisu Municipality, Mr Boadu said campaigning early may affect and distract the work of President Nana Akufo-Addo.

Mr Boadu said although it is acceptable for the flag bearer hopefuls to splash their posters around, they should not start campaigning.

He called on the hopefuls to observe the rules and regulations regarding the internal elections of the party.

“We see posters around and that is acceptable but no one should start campaigning”, he warned.

“If you start campaigning, you’ll distract the president from the mandate given to him”, Mr Boadu added, explaining: “He will be distracted by these campaigns by our own people, so, I urge you all to observe these rules and regulations”.

Mr Boadu also noted that the party will hold its National Delegates Conference in the Ashanti Region on the 18th, 19th and 20th of December this year.

He advised members of the party to unite, as they prepare for the internal polls.
