Prior to the elections, some party stalwarts called on delegates to elect leaders who could help the NPP “break the eight”.

Earlier, President Nana Akufo-Addo called on delegates to elect executives who can help the New Patriotic Party (NPP) remain in power after the 2024 general election.

Addressing the party at its annual national delegates’ conference in Accra Akufo-Addo said unity is key in breaking the eight, therefore the new executives should be able to hold the party together in the lead-up to the next election.

“It’s our historic duty to maintain the NPP in office under a new candidate and under a new leader,” Akufo-Addo told the delegates gathered at the Accra Sports Stadium.

“An important step towards that victory is the work we’re going to do today,” the president said ahead of the elections. “Let’s make sure that we elect men and women who can hold us together and enable us to work together to be able to surmount our mantra breaking the eight.”

Former President John Kufuor also advised delegates to choose competent leaders to lead the party to win the 2024 elections.

Kufuor also called on the delegates to elect national executives who can lead the party to regain the confidence of Ghanaians.

“Even as we meet to pick a new crop of leaders to lead us forward… I want to appeal to all of us that let us from now select national executives committee of the party not on great talks but on careful examination,” Kufuor told the delegates.

“To find out the sort of leadership that will enable us to regain the confidence of the people of Ghana and let us show true respect to the idea, the vision that true sovereignty is from the people,” he said.
