Regional Secretaries of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Thursday, June 16, 2022 visited the Vice President in his office to formally introduce themselves to him after their victories at the various Regional Conferences held across the country recently.
Details of the regional secretaries’ meeting with Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, is sketchy, but insiders said it was mainly centred on issues relating to the growth of the NPP and also how to deepen the bond between the government and the local party.
Dr Bawumia, who is readying himself for the NPP flag bearer contest, is said to have had his candidates sweep the just ended NPP regional elections.
Many, believe the regional executives had gone to pledge their support for the Vice-President, whose popularity in the ruling party is said to be increasing by the day.
Regional Secretaries present at the meeting were; Lawyer Sulley Sambian of North East Region, Nana Antwi Eric of the Ahafo Region and Kofi Ofosu Boateng of Bono Region.
Others were; David Boakye of Bono East Region, Tony Osei-Adjei of the Eastern Region and Odarlai Parker of the Greater Accra Region.
The rest were; Pope Yevu of Volta Region, Jonathan Manu of Oti Region, Elvis Figo of Upper East Region and Amankwa Afrifa of Western Region, Tanko Daniel Dauda of the Upper West and Takyi-Mensah of the Central Region.
It is unclear, if the visit by the NPP Regional Secretaries, will be followed by other regional executives of the ruling party which is getting ready for its National Executive elections next month.
