The Branch Executives of the ruling New Patriotic Party-United Kingdom, as part of their efforts to organize and mobilize supporters for the party over the weekend visited Dundee, Glasgow and Aberdeen Chapter-in-formations, all in Scotland.
The leader of the delegation, Branch Organiser, Richmond Boateng encouraged members to continue to spread the good works of the Akufo-Addo administration throughout their respective communities to rally support, resources and logistics in preparation of election 2020.
Apart from Dundee which is an already inaugurated chapter, Mr. Boateng took the leadership of the various chapter-in-formations through inaugural modalities to enable the Chapter-in-formations to meet inaugural requirements.
Speaking at the event held in Aberdeen, the Youth Organizer of the Branch, Richard Gyamfi stated: “If we are to retain power in 2020, it starts from some of these chapters abroad, where we highlight the good works of the President wherever we are”.
This move aims to increase the number of party supporters living in the diaspora before implementing and operationalizing the Representation of the People Amendment Law (ROPAL). The aim of ROPAL is to give Ghanaians living outside the country equal rights to vote no matter where they live.
Branch Women’s Organiser Shirley Kyei, charged especially the ladies, to be each other’s keeper. She asked that they make the party attractive for more women participation and activism since women play a pivotal role in nation building. She later presented NPP paraphernalia to the women during the event.
Branch Nasara Co-ordinator Issah Ayumah, also acknowledged the local Nasara group for their continuous support to the party in the diaspora and charged each chapter-in-formation to have Nasara Coordinators.
Also present at the events was a Presidential Staffer Saeed Duah, himself a former Branch Organiser, who graced the series of visitation as a special guest.
Party members present further expressed their excitement for the chapters’ inauguration and promised their unflinching support to sell the good policies of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for victory 2020.
