PRESS RELEASE BY THE NORTHERN REGIONAL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE OF THE NEW PATRIOTIC PARTY

In pursuant to Article 7 (9) of the constitution of the New Patriotic Party, the Northern Regional Executive Committee of the New Patriotic Party has appointed a 9 member Regional Elections Committee to manage the party’s elections processes in the upcoming Polling Station, Constituency and Regional Elections.

The Committee is chaired by a seasoned legal practitioner, Alhaji Abdulai Mohammed, and includes:

 

  1. Alhaji Zakaria Adams
  2. Nana Boakye, Regional Research and Electoral Affairs Director
  3. Hajia Fati Abukari, Fmr Reg. Women Organizer
  4. Alhaj Mahamud Abdul-Rahaman
  5. Hajia Binala Victoria Naako, Fmr. Reg. 2nd Vice Chairman
  6. Mr. Issahaque A. Latif, Reg. Director, Communication and Media Affairs
  7. Mr. Osman Habib
  8. Alhaji Adam Cockra

In a similar vein, the Regional Executive Committee also appointed Hajia Hawa Bawa Doshie and Hajia Mame Musah as Northern Regional Representatives to the National Council. This appointment has been occasioned by the vacancies created as a result of the appointments, by H.E. the President, Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo, of Hajia Samata Gifty Abukari and Hajia Fati Forgor, to the high offices of Councillor General and High Commissioner of Guinea and Namibia respectively.

The Northern Regional Executive Committee also took the decision to lift the indefinite suspension that was placed on Hajia Mohammed Safia, the Deputy Regional Women Organizer. This decision was arrived, among other things, by her apology to the Regional Executive Committee and her pledge to be of good behavior and, overall, by the intervention of the Yagbon Wura Bawa Doshie, the Overlord of the Gonja Traditional Area, on her behalf.

Because of the enormous respect the New Patriotic Party in the region has for our father, the Yagbon Wura, the Executive Committee has reviewed its disciplinary action on Hajia Mohammed Safia, and she has therefore been recalled to function in her post as the Deputy Regional Women Organizer of the New Patriotic Party in the Northern Region.

Finally, the party takes this opportunity to wish all party supporters, sympathizers and the general public a happy and prosperous new year.

 

Thank you.
