An aspiring regional organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Upper West Region, Iddrisu Bomison, has expressed confidence that “breaking the 8” is possible given the track record of the party in government for the past five years, thus called on party members to conduct themselves in a manner that can consolidate the gains made so far.
According to Mr. Bomison, failure of the NPP to break the eight-year cycle of governance in Ghana by political parties can only be self-inflicted, stating that “the biggest threat to the NPP’s 2024 victory is the NPP itself”.
Mr. Bomison made the statement in a facebook post ahead of the Party’s constituency elections which will be taking place in all eleven (11) constituencies of the Upper West region on Saturday, 30th April, 2022.
The former Wa Central Constituency secretary cautioned all stakeholders to conduct themselves well so as to avoid inflicting pain on the party, reminding them that the interest of the NPP supersedes that of any individual’s interest. He urged delegates to “elect officers who will understand that there is work to do rather than a position to be occupied” in order to make the BreakThe8 mantra a reality and not just a wishful thought.
The vociferous NPP communicator also indicated that the NPP can regain the seats lost in the region during the 2020 elections and even add more if they get the right officers to man the constituencies and the region ahead of the 2024 elections. He described this step of the NPP’s restructuring process as very crucial, and thus called on the party faithful to conduct themselves with respect to “the rules and regulations governing the elections and not do anything else that will subject our great party’s name to public ridicule”.
Iddrisu Bomison is hoping to serve the party as Regional Organiser. He had previously served at the constituency level as the Wa Central secretary and has always been active in the party activities in the region since their days in opposition. He is considered as one of the best aspirants who can best serve as the regional organiser having traversed the entire region and gained sufficient knowledge about politics in the region. He is currently the Regional Manager for the Buffer Stock Company Ltd.
