Avoid Endorsing Or Campaigning For Aspirants; JFK Warns

The General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has warned National, Regional and Constituency executives of the party against endorsing or campaigning for any of the party’s presidential or parliamentary primaries aspirants.

Similarly, contestants are warned to desist from all forms of campaigns including mounting billboards and holding meetings with party executives.

According to Kodua Frimpong also known as JFK, engaging in such acts will amount to a breach of Section 1 (f) of the party’s code of conduct.

The caution comes ahead of the opening of nominations for presidential and parliamentary aspirants of the party.

“Failure to comply with this directive may lead to huge consequences and sanctions against such offending officer, member or prospective aspirant in line with the grievance procedures stipulated in the code of conduct”, the NPP noted.

The NPP General Secretary indicated that the directive is to avert internal party wranglings and factionalism which usually emerges when party executives declare support for some aspirants.

He stated that “It is intended to avoid the repetition of the electoral misfortunes of our tradition in the 1979 and 2008 elections which were linked to party officials openly leading campaigns of aspirants”.
