Leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is sounding a caution to its rank and file about the consequences of having a disrupted conference by displaying banners and paraphernalia of contestants ahead of their National Delegates conference.
Bearing in mind the strong support received by contestants at the regional delegates conference months ago, the leadership on Friday, November 26, sent strong warnings to party members to be wary of consequences they would be subjected to if they allowed internal fracas, bickering and display of memorabilia among others to undermine the progress of the program.
The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has served notice of its 2021 National Annual Delegates Conference.
The conference will be held from 18 to 20 December 2021 at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.
The party emphasised that attendance to the National Annual Delegates Conference shall be strictly by invitation, with full observance of all COVID-19 health protocols.
The anxiety about the chances of the incumbent regional chairman - Bernard Antwi Bosiako continues to deepen as some former Members of Parliament and party sympathizers call for new leadership ahead of the regional primaries in 2022.
The statement reads:
At an emergency Ashanti Regional Executive Committee meeting held on the 24th day of November, 2021, the Committee among other things resolved as follows:
“That the Committee has resolved that any member who in any manner or form communicates through the media against the Party or its officers with intent to cause public disaffection for the Party or its officers shall be made to face the appropriate Disciplinary Committee and sanctions provided under the Party's Constitution shall be applied where found culpable.
“That the Committee resolved that in order to maintain cohesion and Party unity at all times, all members of the New Patriotic Party shall abide by the above resolutions.
“It is part of the Committee's resolution that in order to make the National Annual Delegates Let Conference to be held at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, Kumasi from 18th - 20th December, 2021, a memorable one, all Party members must religiously abide by the directives given by the National Party to the effect that NO ASPIRANT shall display his / her banners or memorabilia at the conference grounds or bring along "soloku" drummers in any form or shape as a show of support."
