Constituency executives in the Ashanti Region have received with excitement the message from Stephen Asamoah Boateng popularly known as ASABEEE.
The former SIGA boss is currently touring constituencies in his birth ground, the Ashanti Region ahead of the upcoming national chairmanship elections of which he is eyeing the seat as Chairman.
With open confessions and commitments from about 20 constituencies he has toured so far in the region, the reception has been positive for ASABEEE.
Starting his latest tour from his home town of Konongo in the Ashanti Akyem enclave on Saturday and Sunday with massive endorsements from the constituency executives, ASABEEE toured the Bekwai enclave on Monday morning meeting constituency executives from the enclave.
Some of the constituency executives were surprised that ASABEEE was touring their area again, this time coming down Constituency-by-Constituency.
Speaking at these constituencies with a five (5) point plan, the former State Interests and Governance Authority (SIGA) Director General said he was into the race of chairmanship to win and lead with unified front. "Did you contest to end up as opposition party executive"? Asabeee asked. To a loud response of "No", Asabeee promised that like them he is in to win the Chairmanship Position and re-energise the NPP to go out and beat the NDC emphatically in 2024 General Elections at all cost.
He promised to resource party persons with logistics and in a timely manner to be able to carry out their mandates and also plan effectively for party work. "I will organise sponsors who believe in our government policies and have the goodwill to see us better manage the economy for the prosperity of Ghanaians", Asabeee said.
Hon. Asabeee also intimated his desire to lead for amendments in the Party's Constitution for specific duties to be assigned to elected and appointed executives such as Deputy Secretaries as well as other deputies in the main structure of the party so they function efficiently and effectively.
In his 4th point, the energetic ASABEEE said he would commence a discussion with party leadership when he becomes Chairman so that they could implement what he has termed as agenda 60/40.
This agenda, ASABEEE explained would mean a discussion with the President on how to allocate at least some 40% of all appointments to the Party at Constituency and polling station levels. This will go a long way to bridge the gap between government and Party.
Capping his message, Hon Asabeee noted that the 2024 General elections will not be an easy task but was desirous of leading the NPP to the battleground as a "War Time General" who has the capacity to beat the NDC to their "own game". He intends to build a strong Party that strategise and take anyone our party would present as flag bearer.
Some of the Chairmen who spoke to this reporter during the visit said their constituency executives were committed to Asabeee because they see him as their own and he has the energy and "No nonsense character" to face the NDC.
They also pledged their support to Asabeee, indicating that they would be voting en bloc on July 14 for the former SIGA boss.
Some of the Chairmen publicly endorsed the candidature of Asabeee, noting that the former Information Minister was the only one that was contesting as Chairman who had shown respect, humility and seriousness to them by touring their areas for at least two times.
They were appreciative of the show of respect and promised to reciprocate in kind by storming Accra to vote en bloc for ASABEEE at the National Elections on July 14.
