Sir John – I am the “anointed” General Secretary

General Secretary of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie says  he is the anointed scribe for the party.

He said nobody in the NPP can match up his courage, hard work and dedication in party as a General Secretary.

Sir John as he is popularly called is seeking to retain his position. But he is being challenged by some party bigwigs like Yaw Boabeng Asamoah and possible former presidential spokesperson Kwabena Agyapong.

But an optimistic Owusu Afriyie says the rank and file of the “elephant” family will not make a mistake of replacing him at the NPP’s upcoming delegates congress in 2014.

He maintains that his good works for the past years as General Secretary follows him everywhere he goes.

Sir John bemoaned the needless allegations leveled against decent people in the name of electoral contest.

Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie advised all persons interested in the various party positions to embark on issues based campaign in order not to discredit people.

Meanwhile the timetable for the NPP’s internal elections are as follows: Polling stations elections 30th November, constituency elections 14 December 2013, with exception of Eastern Region which will take place on 15th December.

Also all regional elections shall take place on January 25th 2014 across the country; while the crunch national executives’ elections come off on 1st March 2014.
