A former New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Suhum, Frederick Opare-Ansah, says he has all it takes to hold the general secretary position in the party.
Opare Ansah has declared his intention to contest for the National General Secretary position of the NPP.
The NPP will go to the polls from July 14 to 16, 2022 to elect national executive officers.
The party is currently holding its polling station executive and electoral area co-ordinators election ahead of the national polls.
According to the former lawmaker, his decision is backed by the willingness to help achieve the goal of breaking the cycle of eight-year governance and beyond.
In an interview with host of Atinka FM’s AM Drive, Frederick Opare-Ansah stated that his desire to be the general secretary is a call to duty to help drive the NPP further towards achieving its vision to remain in the service of the nation as the ruling government.
According to Opare Ansah, he is offering himself for the position because the current and future challenges ahead of the party require different kind of leadership, mentality and approach, given the dynamics of contemporary intra party and external political environment.
“There is the need for inclusiveness and openness in the party. I stand for quality political leadership and the use of political democratic processes in the selection of such leaders.
It is a call to take the NPP back to the electorate to seek the support of Ghanaians to give us the opportunity to consolidate the unprecedented developmental policies that the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo-led government had initiated.
The Party has a broad base of human resources to continue what Akufo-Addo started,” Opare Ansah told Kaakyire Ofori Ayim.
