Crusaders of Nana Akufo-Addo (CONAA), a group of New Patriotic Party (NPP) supporters sympathetic to the fight for the third time bid of the twice defeated presidential candidate ,has served notice to crush all party insiders, who try to stand in the way of the third time ambitions of
Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for the 2016 presidential elections.
The group had Abena Kwala, as Deputy Coordinator, Sylvester Tetteh, Director of Operations, Jeffrey Konadu, Director of Finance and Gifty Oware as Director of Administration.
The rest are Baba Tauffic, as Director of Media Affairs and Information Technology (IT), Kojo Anim, Chief Strategist, Fifi Mensah, Ashanti Regional Coordinator, Ebenezer Doku, Greater Accra regional Coordinator.
At a ceremony to outdoor the group at its maiden press conference in Accra, National Coordinator of CONAA, Mr Hopeson Yaovi Adorye, the failed National Organizer aspirant said, the party should desist from any negative acts that will derail the party’s quest for victory 2016.
We seek to warn all members of the party, who have begun casting slurs and trying to destroy the reputation of candidates in this contest will not survive.
“We will not sit aloof and watch a bunch of greedy bastards destroy the party, all in the name of their parochial interests,” he warned
According to him, the party’s forerunners, fought to bring the party to where it is and it is incumbent on us to ensure that what they fought for is not destroyed by a bunch of people who have no idea about the sacrifices others had to make.
He said, the kind of negative campaign in the run up to the presidential primary being implored by some candidates and their surrogates is totally alien to the traditions of the NPP.
He noted that what these individuals, would succeed in doing was arming the opponents of the party to fault the winner of the overall primary.
He warned members of the party, who have begun casting slurs and trying to destroy the reputation of other candidates in the race to be wary of their actions.
He said, what was required at this stage is the show of leadership and not the blackmailing that has already begun.
He urged all the candidates to go round and listen to the grounds and assess the ground, since his group has done so for Nana Addo and determined to make sure delegates give him ninety percent of total votes.
He revealed that the group was determined to project the code President 7117 signifying Nana Addo’s age and the year he will assume office as president come 2017.
