Campaign On Our Records-NPP To Communicators
The New Patriotic Party’s campaign team for 2020 has urged their teaming supporters as well as communicators especially to focus their campaign for this year’s elections on achievements by the government and refrain from attacking political opponents.
Ghana has been in chaos with abusive words from parties to their opponents in the past few days. This act which has been condemned by many seems not to be ending soon. A notable example is the Ashanti regional chairman of the NPP Bernard Antwi Boasiako aka Chairman Wontumi who used some abusive words on Prof Jane Naana Opoku Agyeman, describing her as not fit for the position of Vice President.
In a Statement signed and issued by Dr Alhaji Mustapha Hamid, Zongo Development Minister who double as the deputy campaign manager in charge of communications said the President of the Republic and the Presidential Candidate for the NPP and the campaign team wish to remind its faithfuls that the party’s philosophy of positive engagement still holds valid.
“We therefore urge all who speak for, or purport to speak for the party to refrain from attacking political opponents. We specifically ask that no reference should ever be made to opponent’s ethnicity, religion or gender” he said in the Statement.
According to the Statement, they shall campaign on record and win because there is enough to speak about with regard to their record in office for the past three and half years and therefore cannot beat their opponents in the politics of calumny.
