Ejisu (Ash), Dec 19, GNA – A leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has rallied Ghanaians to unite behind the President-elect, Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo, to push through his government’s development agenda – to overcome poverty and other indignities.
Mr. Kwaku Ntim Twumasi asked that they showed strong support, understanding and good will to the new political administration.
He made the call at a ceremony held by the Spiritan University College branch of the Tertiary Students Confederacy (TESCON) of the NPP to honour him for the huge part he played in the party’s election victory in the Ejisu constituency.
The party won both the presidential and parliamentary elections by 84.48 per cent and Mr. Twumasi, popularly known as “NTK”, was instrumental in that.
The students together with the constituency youth wing, in recognition of his vital contribution, presented him with a citation.
Mr. Twumasi encouraged everybody to find space to contribute to the effort of building a society that worked for all but not only a privilege few.
He used the occasion to counsel the jubilant supporters to step back from acts of provocation or taunts of their political opponents as they celebrated the resounding victory.
He reminded them to get right with the law to prevent needless confusion and safeguard the peace.
The citation, read by Franklin Boadi-Tuffour, the TESCON branch President, applauded him for his extraordinary dedication to the cause of the party.
It described him as an “invaluable asset” to the NPP and said the youth in the constituency would continue to be inspired by his passion for victory.
