Office of Kwabena Agyepong



As the New Patriotic Party prepares to select leaders at the national Level, an aspirant for the General Secretary Position, Kwabena Agyei Agyepong, has urged faithful at the various levels of the party to promote genuine unity and stay focused on the agenda to win election 2016.

Speaking at separate meetings with Ashanti, Brong, Northern, Upper East and Upper West Regional Executives and Elders of NPP at the their respective secretariats, Mr. Agyepong urged them to see 2016 as a battle to redeem the party and Ghana from the untoward hardship currently being experienced under the NDC administration. He promised to promote genuine unity in the party, were every faithful will feel a part of the party.

His vision to strengthen the constituencies and make them the center of operations, is anchored on conviction that the real political activities are locally-centered and therefore resources should be adequately channeled in these areas to build a strong base, capable of prosecuting effective campaign to win election 2016 and beyond.

During his visit to the Northern Region, Mr. Kwabena Agyei Agyepong took time off to pay a courtesy call on the running mate of 1992 ticket of the NPP, Mr. Roland Alhassan, who testified about Kwabena’s ability and his long dedicated service to NPP, especially in the three Northern Regions.

In the Upper West Region, Mr. Agyepong also called on a former member of Council of State and Elder of the Party, Alhaji Alhassan Bin-Salih, who was full of praise for Kwabena, especially during his time as the Presidential Spokesperson and Press Secretary to President Kufour. He further advised other aspirants, to emulate Kwabena’s style of campaigning, were insults and mudslinging is avoided.

The Kwabena 4 GS campaign completed its first phase of consultation with the regional elders and executives. He emphasized, “Mine is a strong desire to serve the party with a clear conscience, pure motives and a solid character premised on COMPETENCE, COMPASSION, COMMITMENT AND COURAGE.
