The New Patriotic Party (NPP) will hold its constituency annual delegates’ conference for 2021 across the country this month, starting on 21 August.
The one-week event will be held in all 275 constituencies, in accordance with Article 7(27) of the governing party’s constitution.
A statement signed by the NPP’s general secretary, John Boadu, said the forum will be held in groups of 250 delegates, on average, to ensure that participants adhere strictly to the COVID-19 protocols.
The conference will also take place “within two hours, in line with the president’s recent directives”.

We’re winning Election 2024
Meanwhile, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has declared that the New Patriotic Party is poised to break the eight-year jinx by winning power in the next presidential election.
Akufo-Addo has therefore urged executives and party supporters to ensure absolute victory for the NPP in 2024.
Speaking at the party headquarters in Accra during 29th-anniversary celebrations for the NPP last week, Akufo-Addo declared: “On 7 December 2024, the NPP’s presidential candidate is going to win the elections.
“Our objectives, our responsibility, is to do whatever is necessary to make sure that that victory is forthcoming.”
He added: “We have to continue our way forward in Ghana. We cannot accept the backsliding that takes place every now and then. It hasn’t benefited our nation, and it will not benefit our nation.”
We’ll overcome challenges
Akufo-Addo asked Ghanaians to retain the NPP in power to continue with its transformation agenda after 2024.
“The foundations that we are laying today and the prosperity of our nation are going to be shaken if again through our own fault we allow the path to progress to be diverted,” he said.
He assured Ghanaians that the government has what it takes to turn around the country’s fortunes amid the current challenges.
“Yes, the nation is facing challenges and difficulties but these challenges and difficulties can and will be overcome, because we have the policies, we have the programmes and we have the value that will enable us to continue our journey of development in freedom,” Akufo-Addo said.
