The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Chairman for Afigya Kwabere South, Odeneho Kwaku Appiah popularly known as COKA, has called on the party’s top hierarchy to embrace change as they gear up to elect a new leadership ahead of 2024 polls.
According to him, pride, arrogance and selfishness which has taken the centre stage in the affairs of the NPP in the Ashanti Region has caused them and believes if change is not effected the party’s vision to break the eight may not be sustainable.
“One “man” has cost us a lot. We have lost so many people from within and without the region over the past 4 years. Why should this be so? We need all on board. Can we do something different? He queried.
COKA who has made intentions clear to contest for the Ashanti Regional NPP Chairmanship position wrote on his Facebook page;
“Since the days of our forefathers, when N.P.P. was formed in 1992, no single person in Ashanti Region N.P.P. did it alone or took credit for himself alone. Be it chairman Dr Herry Opoku, Chairman Donkor Fordjour, Chairman F.F. Anto and Chairman Yaw Amankwah.
They all joined forces together to achieve the goals of our party. That is what we knew, and what l was groomed to understand. No one person can lift Ashanti NPP on his own. It’s about time we realised how our foundation in the NPP over the past few years has been weakened by a selfish few in the region. Leadership has literally been reduced to ridicule.
One “man” has cost us a lot. We have lost so many people from within and without the region over the past 4 years. Why should this be so? We need all on board. Can we do something different?
Ashanti deserves a better deal than where we find ourselves! With God on our side, and all on board, together we shall restore our lost dignity, build up the necessary confidence and instill a sense of belonging in all. Together we shall break the 8. God is our only hope.”
