The Central Regional First Vice Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Horace Ekow Ewusi, has observed that the party stands a better chance of winning the 2020 elections hands down if they unite after the national elections.
Speaking to The Chronicle in an interview after the National Delegates Conference at Koforidua, Mr Ewusi argued that unity was all the party would need to win the 2020 polls.
According to him, tension gave birth to a series of accusations and counter-accusations among some major contestants before the elections.
“Stakes were high, but now the elections are over, so I believe we can all come together and build a more united and stronger party with one common purpose,” he said.
Adding: “A house divided among itself cannot stand. We must, therefore, stretch a hand to those who lost and bring them together to achieve a common goal.”
He told this reporter that the President was walking the talk and winning the hearts of many Ghanaians, but the party hierarchy must work together to ensure total victory.
“I think that it does not really matter who won which position, because the victory was for all of us as a party. What we need to do now is to be able bury whatever differences that occurred before and during the elections,” he stressed.
According to Mr Ewusi, the current rank and file of the party should work hard, devoid of rancour and acrimony, so as to make the party attractive.
This way, he said, the party’s quest to win the 2020 elections would be achieved on a silver platter.
The NPP recently elected new national executives to steer the affairs of the party at the national level for the next four years.
Per the party’s constitution, the new executives would have the mantle to lead the party into the 2020 general elections.
