Dr Henry Hebert Lartey, Leader of the Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP), has stated that his party would pull a surprise in the 2016 general elections, as they were vigorously working under the carpet to attract more votes.
He said the party would not make noise on its plans and strategies, but rather focus on strengthening its structures to build a formidable force to garner more votes in the next general elections.
Dr Lartey made these remarks in Koforidua during the party’s Regional Delegates Conference to elect executives to steer the affairs of the party in the region.
“We will start talking when all is set and done; at the moment we are travelling across every corner of Ghana, listening to the stories and the experiences of the People, talking to them about their hopes, dreams and expectations for the future,” he said.
According to Dr Lartey, Ghanaians are getting to appreciate the domestication philosophy as the way to go, in improving their living standards, and that with the door-to-door sensitization the GCPP will become more attractive and eventually record increased votes.
At the end of the regional election supervised by officials of the Eastern Regional Electoral Commission, Mr Joseph Atteh, a 43-year-old building contractor, was elected Chairman.
Mr Isaac Nyarko was elected Vice Chairman, Emmanuel Kudaya, Regional Secretary, Ebenezer Anokye grasped the Treasurer’s position, whiles Mr Godwin Atta Asare was voted for as the officer in-charge of Education.
The rest were Mrs Vida Ofori, Women Orgniser, Mr Emmanuel Akonnor, Regional Organiser and Mr Stephen Arthur, Youth Organiser.
Dr Lartey congratulated the elected officers, and urged them to immediately get to work by going down to the grassroots to intensify education on the domestication philosophy. GNA
