Executive Director of the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) Sulemana Braimah has given a free advice to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) ahead of their scheduled national congress. Apexnewsgh.com
Read his full advice below and reasons why he think such move will be quite insensitive to hold the national congress as planned.
WHY THE NPP MUST POSTPONE ITS NATIONAL CONGRESS
Giving the dire crisis facing our dear country, I’m appealing to the ruling NPP to consider postponing its planned national congress for the election of national officers this week. That will be a gesture to show that as a ruling party, it knows and cares about the ongoing national crisis. The economy has been run aground. Multiple labour unions are on strike. Public basic schools have been closed across the country. Secondary schools are facing severe food shortages. We are not in normal times. This is time for national reflection, bi-partisan discussions and consensus building. This is not the time to be thinking and talking about winning the next election in 2024. As the ruling party, it will be quite insensitive to hold the national congress as planned.
