Mr Gibrine Tanko Toye, Vice Chairman of the Agona West Constituency of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has said that with the selection of a flag bearer for the party, members should put the past behind them, and forge ahead in unity for the party to win power in 2016.
He stated that the overwhelming votes for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, in last Saturday’s National Delegates congress, showed that the party was battle-ready for 2016.
Mr Toye made these remarks when he addressed the Press after the election of Nana Akufo Addo as the Presidential Candidate of the NPP at Agona Swedru.
He said the peaceful manner in which the elections were conducted had proved that NPP really understood internal democracy, despite initial accusations.
In the Agona West, Nana Akufo Addo polled 654 votes as against five and three votes by Mr Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen, and Mr Francis Addai Nimo respectively
Mr Toye said the massive votes for Nana Akufo Addo indicated that NPP would defeat the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the next general elections.
