The 2016 Presidential candidate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo, is urging all winners in the party’s parliamentary primaries held last Saturday to “reach out and bring on board their fellow aspirants who did not win” to ensure unity.

In a congratulatory message released on Sunday, Nana Addo advised unsuccessful aspirants to also “reciprocate this gesture”.

According to him, internal party contests are not about winners and losers. He has therefore called on all party members and sympathisers to “rally behind their respective parliamentary candidates to strengthen further our resolve and singleness of purpose to capture power in 2016.”

AKUFO-ADDO CONGRATULATES NPP ON SUCCESSFUL PARLIAMENTARY PRIMARIES

This is to congratulate all the newly-elected parliamentary candidates of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the just ended parliamentary primaries of Saturday, June 13, 2015, which were held in 245 out of the 275 constituencies across the country.

I congratulate all party executives, delegates and aspirants for the peaceful, credible, efficient and successful manner in which the elections, the last in the series of our internal contests, were conducted. They were exciting and competitive. The high level of participation, enthusiasm and camaraderie that the elections generated among our activists gives an indication of our collective energy and commitment to the struggle ahead in 2016.

Internal party contests are not about winners and losers. They are about the party winning.

Thus, in the true spirit of our party’s tradition, I urge all party members and sympathisers to rally behind their respective parliamentary candidates to strengthen further our resolve and singleness of purpose to capture power in 2016. I also respectfully appeal to those who were successful on the day to reach out and bring on board their fellow aspirants who did not win. Unsuccessful aspirants should in their turn also reciprocate this gesture. To the sitting MPs who lost, I applaud their service to our party and nation and ask them not to be disheartened. They have important roles to play in the forward march of the party.

For the great majority of Ghanaians, the NPP is the obvious alternative to the failing government of the Mahama-led NDC. It is for us to show them that we can win the 2016 elections, so that we can take our nation out of the desperate conditions into which she has been plunged and put her back onto the path of progress and prosperity. We must forge ahead, in a united manner, in our quest to restore hope to Ghanaians. This is our sacred duty. Let us be up and doing.

May God bless our party, our country and us all.

Nana Akufo-Addo 

2016 NPP Presidential Candidate
