‘You can’t fix a common album and want to win 2024 polls?’ – NPP to NDC

The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has commented on how the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) continuously uses delegates’ lists instead of an album for internal elections in the country.

According to the NPP, the NDC, since 1992, has been using this archaic system for electing leaders in the country and is still averse to change.

”In this modern day and age where Information Communication Technology (ICT) has taken centre [stage] in elections management, our compatriots continue to drag us back,” the General Secretary of NPP said.   

Mr Justin Frimpong Kodua expressed this view in reaction to claims by an NDC flagbearer aspirant, Dr Kwabena Duffour, that the party gave him an album which is not fit for purpose for the presidential and parliamentary primaries slated for Saturday, May 13, 2023.

He spoke on the Ghana Yensom morning show hosted by Odeyeeba Kofi Essuman on Accra 100.5 FM on Friday, May 12, 2023.

“Even though the party is not able to fix its album, it’s quick to accuse the Electoral Commission when reforms are announced,” he noted.  

“This is the party that cannot fix an album for election and yet is telling Ghanaians it is going win the 2024 elections,” he added and quizzed: “You can’t just fix an album and you want to win an election?”

“As a party, we have moved from the delegates’ list for some years now and all party internal elections are conducted using an album,” he boasted.

“It is the reason the NPP has kick-started the process for the verification of the album for the presidential primary in November 2023 to ensure fairness and transparency,” he added.

“…The NPP says it wants to break the eight and move on to twelve years by doing things Ghanaians desire to see while the NDC continues to grapple with fixing an album for internal elections,” he said.

Mr Justin Kodua Frimpong called on the NDC to do all within its power to address the issues raised by Dr Duffuor to avoid any violence in its upcoming primaries.
