John Hayward, delivering his solidarity message at the NPP conference in Koforidua, expressed shock over the many posters he has seen as well as other means of campaigns. He questioned whether that is a prudent use of resources, emphasizing that per his experience, voters prefer political parties which focus on the needs of the people.
John Hayward continued, "I came through the streets today and I saw so many posters of the wonderful candidates here. But I had to reflect. I think I saw more posters than the delegates at this conference and I wondered, ‘is this really the best use of our resources?.
John Hayward suggested that the NPP is trending on slippery grounds with respect to the use of resources and advised that it rather invests in the lives of the citizenry.
John Hayward noted that "Voters are less keen on parties but focus more on the internal issues on the parties. We hope that the NPP can reach out more on the people".
The National Delegates Conference attracted almost 6,000 members of the governing NPP converged at the Koforidua Technical University campus in the Eastern Region to elect their national executives.
41 members of the party sought to occupy the various executive positions in the party to lead the party for the next four years.
Positions contested were National Chairperson – First, Second and Third; General Secretary, National Treasurer and National Organiser, National Women Organiser, National Youth Organiser and National Nasara Coordinator.
