Charles Bissue, a general secretary aspirant of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has withdrawn from the contest a few days to the national annual delegates conference.
In a letter addressed to the national election committee on Wednesday (13 July), Bissue said he took the decision after a broad consultation with various stakeholders.
“I tender herein, my withdrawal from the General Secretary contest of the New Patriotic Party. My
decision is sequel to broad consultations with family, promoters and supporters, delegates and
well-wishers of my campaign.
“I am convinced, and reiterate that the various contenders for the position are equally deserving of
the position of a General Secretary. It is my prayer that delegates of this great Party make the
right choice in electing amongst the remaining candidates, the best to lead the NPP into another
political cycle; and that of course, is to break the 8-year jinx.”
“I assure the Party of my support to whoever gets elected as the General Secretary, and to be of
service to the Party, when called upon. [Reference section “My Agenda 4 Change” for a read on some of
the various policies, strategies etc. I intended to deploy when elected as General Secretary],” the letter stated.
This means five persons namely John Boadu, Justin Kodua Frimpong, Iddrisu Musah, Frederick Opare-Ansah, Charles Bissue and Ramseyer Ahmed Agyeman-Prempeh will stand for the position of NPP general secretary.
He further expressed gratitude to the leadership of the NPP.
