THE FORMER NPP Chairman for Afigya Kwabre Constituency, Chairman Odeneho Kwaku Appiah (COKA), says he still has hope in the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to take the country out of the present difficulties confronting it.
He noted that the President has shown that he was capable to work things out for the people.
Addressing the people of Kumasi on several radio stations last Friday, COKA said his belief would surely play out as the government works to make the economy work again despite embracing the IMF to ensure fiscal discipline.
“I ask for patience for the President who I know has a good heart for the people of Ghana and he would surely work things out with his government to make Ghana work again”, the former NPP Chairman stated.
COKA stressed that he has ambition to become the regional Chairman for the NPP in Ashanti.
He noted that it is the reason he has not abandoned any person or groups that stood with him during the regional elections which he lost to the incumbent.
The former constituency chairman however noted that currently he has resolved to defend and work for President Akufo-Addo to ensure he revives the economy.
“I do not say with my mouth I am a leader but my actions show same because I do not believe in using people for a project and when it is achieved or not I let them go since true leadership is about maintaining relationships with people whether you have power or not”, COKA stated.
Breaking The 8:
COKA believes the NPP would be able to rewrite the narrative that has it that each of the two most followed parties, NPP and NDC would serve in government for two terms.
He said the NPP possesses the best potential to break the 8 year cycle in 2024 because it has worked to ensure it gets the mandate of the people.
The former Chairman agreed it would be an uphill task for his party but insisted that with a collective effort from party members and the resolve by the Nana Addo government it could break the 8 year cycle.
“I am confident that we would break the 8 and this would mean an all hands on deck approach by both party sympathizers as well as members in 2024”, COKA confidently stated.
