The Branch Executives of the ruling New Patriotic Party- United Kingdom as part of their efforts to organize and mobilize supporters for the NPP has over the weekend visited Dundee, Glasgow and Aberdeen Chapter-in-formations, all in Scotland.
The leader of the delegation, Richmond Boateng, Branch Organiser, encouraged members to continue to spread the good work of the Akufo-Addo administration throughout their respective communities to rally support, resources and logistics as we prepare for election 2020. Apart from Dundee which is an already inaugurated Chapter, Mr Boateng took the leadership of the various chapter-in-formations through inaugural modalities to enable the Chapter-in-formations to meet inaugural requirements.
Speaking at the event held in Aberdeen where over a large number of patriots and sympathizers were present, the Youth Organizer of the Branch, Richard Gyamfi stated ‘ If we are to retain power in 2020, it starts from some of these chapters abroad, where we highlight the good works of the President wherever we are’. This move aims to increase the number of party supporters living in the diaspora before implementing and operationalizing the Representation of the People Amendment Law (ROPAL). The aim of ROPAL is to give Ghanaians living outside the country equal rights to vote no matter where they live.
