One of the leading contenders in the NPP chairmanship race, Professor Christopher Ameyaw-Akumfi, has reiterated his call for unity among the rank and file of the party after all the processes to elect national executives and presidential candidate have been completed to ensure a massive win for the party in the 2024 general elections.
According to him, it is only through unity, discipline and commitment that the party can break the eight year jinx of political parties in government after serving second terms in office.
Professor Ameyaw Akumfi, who is also the Board Chairman of the Public Procurement Authority (PPA), made the call when NPP Deputy Regional Women Organisers across the country paid a courtesy call on him to pledge their support for him in the race for the chairmanship position of the governing party.
For their part, the regional women organisers, who conferred the title ‘Nkabomhene’(the unifier) on Professor Ameyaw Akumfi, appealed to the party to make their positions as deputies elective, rather than the current arrangement of appointment, to make them more accountable and responsible to the party faithful.
The women assured Prof Akumfi of their support, and promised to work hard for him to win the contest.
