‘Afoko And Agyepong Will Be Welcomed To Upper East Region’

The Upper East Regional Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Cletus Ayambere has stated that the National Chairman and General Secretary of the party Paul Afoko and Kwabena Agyepong can travel to the region to hold any party activity meant to ensure victory for the party in 2016.

He said they were pleased with Nana Akufo Addo’s assurance to hold President Mahama to his promise to ensure justice for the late Adams Mahama.

According to him, the death of the former NPP Regional Chairman, Adams Mahama has negatively affected the party in the Upper East region, adding that if the perpetrators are not prosecuted according to the laws of the country, the pain in the hearts of the family and the members and supporters of the party would worsen and affect their contributions to the party.

Mr. Ayambere disclosed this to the paper in reaction to the press conference held at the party’s National Headquarters by the 2016 flagbearer of the NPP.

Explaining further, the Upper East Regional Secretary said the call for truce by Nana Addo has come at the right time and hoped all members and supporters of the party in the region would put the recent happenings in the party behind them and work hard to ensure victory for the late party official.

Once the presidential candidate has directed that the National Chairman and General Secretary be allowed to come to the headquarters to do their work without hindrance, no one will hinder them from working in the Upper East region too. Paul Afoko and Kwabena Agyepong will be welcomed to the region any time.

Asked if the five beleaguered executives of the Upper East Regional branch could also contribute their quota to the development of the NPP in the region, the Regional Secretary said he was in the position to answer the question.

DAILY GUIDE has learnt that the five regional executives run out of town or hid at the place to avoid reprisal attacks by some party youth who allegedly threatened to kill them after the death of Adams Mahama.

They include regional party organizer, Jerry Asamni, regional youth organizer, Bashiru Ibrahim, the Nasara Coordinator, Mba Siita, 2nd Vice Chairman Osman Kunkunaba and Women’s Organizer, Florence Sampokabila.
