NPP’s National Chairman Paul Afoko and General Secretary Kwabena Agyapong will not be part of the party’s flagbearer nationwide tour dubbed “Rise And Build Tour”.
Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, will from today embark on a month long tour of the country to touch base with party followers ahead of the commencement of the campaign for the 2016 general elections.
Nana Addo is expected to meet up with regional executives, constituency executives, and aspirants in the NPP parliamentary primaries, both winners and losers, in every region he visits – this is to prepare the party for a campaign that hopes to energise Ghanaians to help build and restore Ghana onto a path of progress and prosperity.
But, according to the party’s National Organizer, the two national executives will not be part of the campaign.
He explained that the pair is currently occupied with other assignments outside the country.
“The party’s running mate, Dr. Bawumia, myself [John Boadu], our Women’s Organizer and other executives. Others are not in the country at the moment so they will join us when they are in Ghana.
“The concentration of the tour is not to go there with a lot of people from Accra because we have leaders and opinion leaders at each region,” John Boadu added.
Speaking on NEAT FM’s morning show “Ghana Montie”, John Boadu denied allegation that the team for the tour is Nana Addo’s official campaign team for 2016.
