The flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Akufo-Addo has urged leaders and supporters to bury all differences they may have and join forces with the party to win the upcoming elections.

According to Nana Addo, there was a need for “cooperation in the party”, saying: “Whatever issue you have, drop it and help us to win power.”

“We understand that cooperation is at the centre of our success. We have a big programme, some of them are very new ideas that will yield to development of the country. These new programmes, if we don’t have a majority in Parliament, will be very difficult. We need to get a clear majority in the House. That is our main target,” he said.

The NPP flagbearer made this known while addressing party leaders and supporters in the Ashanti Region on Monday, 5 September after he met the national leadership to strategise for the campaign.

Nana Addo has been heavily criticised by President John Mahama and leaders of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) over what they call internal wrangling within the party which saw national Chairman Paul Afoko, General Secretary Kwabena Agyapong and Vice Chairman Sammy Crabbe suspended indefinitely late last year.

Addressing the campaign launch of the NDC in the Central region, President John Mahama said the NPP was disunited as it only focused on unnecessarily punishing party members who go contrary to its views.

Meanwhile, Nana Addo said the NPP will likely win the upcoming polls if the party won at least 80% of votes in the Ashanti Region.

“The polls going on in Ashanti Region are encouraging; but we all know that if we hit 80% of the popular votes in Ashanti, we have one and a half feet in the door of Jubilee House. So I’m begging you, let us make this year 2016 the year of the elephant,” he said.
