Build And Maintain Bridges For Victory – Western North NPP Regional Chairman

The Western North Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, *Mr William Benjamin Assuah* and the entire Regional Secretariat have congratulated all Contestants and Delegates for the smooth and successful conduct of parliamentary primaries in our six(6) ‘orphan’ constituencies on Saturday, 28th September 2019.

This success has gone to deepen the democratic credentials of the party and reinforce the party’s position as the most democratic, tolerant and all-inclusive party in Ghana and the whole of Africa.
The Danquah-Busia-Dombo tradition of the NPP believes that elections are the best means of selecting the best Human Resources from the lot. Again, we believe in cooperation after competition. To this end, we congratulate all successful Parliamentary Candidates and their supporters for the victory and urge them to be magnanimous in their celebrations. We urge them to maintain existing bridges and create new ones for victory 2020.
To the unsuccessful aspirants, we wish you better luck next time. Cooperate and work with the winners for the eventual victory of the party next Year. Our main opponent is the NDC and not ourselves.

In all, it was the NPP that won regardless of the personalities involved.
