NPP 15th extraordinary conference underway

Over 2000 delegates have gathered in Sunyani for the conference.


All is set for the 15th extraordinary congress of the opposition New Patriotic Party in Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo region.

Meanwhile, Flagbearer of the party, Nana Akufo-Addo and his vice Dr Mahamudu Bawumia held a closed-door meeting with the Omanhene of the Sunyani Traditional Area, Nana Bosome Asor Nkrawiri II following report over an impasse between the council and the Brong Ahafo Regional branch of the party.

A letter signed by the Akwamuhene of the Council, Nana Kwaku Ababio to the Brong Ahafo branch of the party was emphatic, “we are sorry to inform you that the council cannot receive Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and is entourage...”

The impasse came about as a result of the derogatory remarks by the Regional Chairman of the NPP Mr. Asamoah Kyeremeh against the Chiefs.


A statement issued by the party after the meeting said, “Nana Akufo-Addo and his team were warmly received by the Omanhene and his elders.”

It said the NPP flagbearer was accompanied by Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, his running mate; Nana Obiri Boahen, NPP deputy General Secretary; Madam Ama Busia and Hackman Owusu Agyeman, both members of the NPP National Council of Elders.

Others included Baffuor Awuah, former Brong Ahafo Regional Minister and MP for Sunyani West; Mr. Peter Mac Manu, 2016 Campaign Manager; and Kwadwo Yeboah Fordjuor, former NPP Regional Chairman.

Some stalwarts of the party including former President John Agyekum Kufuor have gathered at the coronation park for the conference.
