Three times presidential candidate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo, will soon be storming Chancellor Angela Merkel’s country, Germany, ostensibly to beg for some cash to support his 2016 election campaign.

The NPP flagbearer and his running mate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, have been carrying out an offshore political campaign by visiting countries and holding townhall rallies, and the visit to Germany is one such offshore political activities.

Among the programme lineup for his trip, is also to beg party members and sympathizers in and outside of the rich country for money.

He is expected to take advantage of the platform to as usual, launch scathing attack on the John Mahama government and the Electoral Commission and its outgoing chairman, Dr. Kwadow Afari Gyan.

A copy of the programme issued by the party in Germany copied to some media houses in Ghana, announced the date of the programme as Saturday, May 16, 2015 at the Eller Str. 40227 D’sseldorf, Germany. One Kweku Appiah, made the announcement in a statement he signed.

Another document accompanying the programme, sighted by this paper is captioned “Invitation To A Meet-And-Greet Party in Honour of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo”.

According to the invite, Nana Addo will be in that country from May 16 -19, 2015 and anyone who makes the effort to feature at the programme, will be offered the opportunity to greet the two times failed presidential aspirant.

It read; “as you are already informed about, the Flag bearer of the NPP, Ghana for the 2016 general elections Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo will be visiting Germany from May 16-19, 2015”.

“A number of activities have been planned by the NPP Germany Branch during this period. It is with pleasure to cordially invite you and members of your association to attend a Party in honour of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo”, the statement said.

The organizers advised anybody interested to sit on the “High Table” with Nana Addo and his delegation from Ghana to contact 0049 (0)176-21845702 or e-mail info@nppgermany.com for a seat to be reserved for that person.

“High Table seats with Nana and his delegation can be reserved by contacting info@nppgermany.com or by calling 0049 (0)176-21845702. Please use the above contacts for any other information”, the statement urged interested party members.

Meanwhile, according to The Herald’s information, reserving a seat for any individual or a group of people on the high table with the 71-year old, will come at a cost. But, the party executives argue it is a privileged to sit next to their party leader, especially so when they are organizing the programme to raise funds.

Indeed, the statement said funds raised from 20:00 dinner, will be sent to the party in Ghana to support Nana Addo’s third time attempt at the presidency.

“All proceeds from the event will go direct to support the NPP Ghana campaign for the 2016 general elections. Thank you for all your help and support”, the statement concluded.

Below is the statement and it accompanying electronic card detailing the venue and contact persons;
