(Mensah) GNA- The New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) surging influence in Ghana’s politics is due to its liberal democratic principles, which interweaves private initiative boosters with well tailored social intervention policies that permeates all strata of society.
Ernest Yao Gaewu, New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary Candidate for Ho-West was speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) on Sunday in Ho just before Party Flag Bearer Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo arrived to meet regional party executives and all contestants in the recent primaries.
He said the NPP’s philosophical attributes, therefore made it the obvious choice for governance, at a time Ghana needed a good mix of governance philosophies to grow.
Mr Gaewu, a Ho-Based Legal Practitioner, said the organizational rehash of the NPP made it the most representative political party in Ghana and that the Party’s views reflected those of the mass of Ghanaians.
He blamed the rather poor performance of the NPP in the Volta Region in the past five general elections partly on the Party’s untenable branding as alien to the region.
Mr Gaewu said as a result of that branding people in the Volta Region were often swayed by sentiments rather than facts, track records and capacities of political personalities to make political choices.
He said in that vein, he (Gaewu) had been berated by friends and relatives for associating with the NPP but would not budge because of his strong belief in the philosophies of the Party.
Mr Gaewu the NPP would be scientific in the marketing of its message in the Volta Region to be heard and heard well.
