The chairman of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Paul Afoko has urged parliamentary candidate aspirants who will lose in the upcoming primaries to be “graceful and bear in mind that there are other equally meaningful ways for them to serve the party”.

In a Facebook post, Mr. Afoko noted that the opportunity has come for the party to demonstrate its strong democratic culture. He advised delegates to vote for candidates who are capable of winning their seats convincingly.

“We go into these primaries with great expectations; expectations from ourselves and the people of Ghana. I wish to advise all that the spirit of togetherness should permeate the zeal with which we conduct ourselves during the primaries. And in this quest, we should bear in mind that we are in search of candidates who will project the true values of the party and respond to the critical needs of their people; candidates who represent the genuine will of the people. We should elect candidates who can win their seats convincingly and also win more votes for our presidential candidate.

“I admonish all to conduct their activities during this period with circumspection and goodwill. Let the elected candidates show magnanimity in their victory and let those who fail to get the nod of the delegates be graceful and bear in mind that there are other equally meaningful ways for them to serve the party.

“The executives of the party remain committed to ensuring the smooth conduct of the primaries and in pursuit of that the National Secretariat has disbursed funds to all constituencies where the primaries will be held. Constituencies, which by Thursday, June 11, 2015 have not received their disbursements, should send their current account details to the General Secretary’s office. I wish all the aspirants good luck. May God bless us all and keep us united,” the national chairman said.

The NPP on Thursday announced that its Parliamentary Primaries slated for Saturday, June 13, 2015 will come off across the country as scheduled except for 30 constituencies where there are various outstanding issues relating to the primaries.
