Volta NPP Confident of Replicating Hohoe Parliamentary Victory

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Volta region is actively strategizing to replicate its success in the Hohoe Constituency during the 2020 general elections in other constituencies in the upcoming 2024 general elections.

In 2020, the NPP made history by winning the Hohoe parliamentary seat for the first time from the opposition NDC, resulting in Hon. John Peter Amewu becoming the sole NPP MP from the Volta region.

During a media soiree on Tuesday, January 2, 2024, in Ho, the Regional Chairman, Makafui Woanyah, indicated that the party aimed to build on the momentum gained from its parliamentary victory in Hohoe and expand its influence within the region. Although he did not delve into specific details regarding their strategy, Mr. Woanyah emphasised that they have a comprehensive plan to achieve their agenda and to support the party’s presidential candidate in ‘breaking the 8’.

He encouraged radio show hosts and media owners to uphold professionalism, neutrality, and fairness in political panel discussions, especially as the 2024 General elections approach. Additionally, he called for a commitment to fact-checking comments made by politicians on political platforms to ensure accurate and reliable information reaches the public.

The Regional Chairman also underscored the significance of Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s election as the NPP Flagbearer for the 2024 election, noting that it dispelled the NDC’s propaganda campaign portraying the NPP as an Akan party. He expressed confidence that this decision sends a strong message about the party’s determination to make substantial inroads in the Volta Region.

Regarding developmental projects, Mr. Woanyah juxtaposed the NPP’s achievements with the over 80 percent votes the NDC garnered in the region. According to him, the people are already witnessing the tangible results of the NPP’s commitment to development, which  has significantly outpaced that of the opposition party in the region.
