The Heroes Park in Kumasi, venue for the 2021 Annual National Delegates’ Conference of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), is all set to host the biggest political event on the calendar of the ruling party.
The presidential dais, media stand, tents for delegates and invited guests had all been mounted when the Ghana News Agency (GNA) visited the venue Saturday morning.
Also fixed were public address systems, places of convenience for males and females, as well as hand washing stations to encourage compliance to the COVID-19 safety protocols.
The entire venue had been branded with NPP colours and images of the President, alongside some of the monumental achievements of the Government.
Some members of the Planning Committee and Regional Executives of the party could be seen issuing out instructions in an effort to add finishing touches to the arrangements on the grounds.
In the thick of affairs were Mr Samuel Awuku, the National Organiser, and Mr Henry Nana Boakye (Nana B), the National Youth Organiser, who were busily engaging the youth in the arrangement of chairs and other logistics.
Mr Boakye told the GNA that the venue was set to host delegates from all the 16 regions.
He said adequate provision had been made in terms of security, food, accommodation and adherence to COVID-19 safety protocols.
“As a ruling party, we are going to ensure strict compliance to the protocols to reflect the President’s commitment to the fight against the disease,” he assured.
The NPP, he noted, was a law-abiding party and would not do anything to breach security and the safety protocols during the conference.
Being held from 18-20 December, on the theme: “NPP, Our Resolve, Our Determination and Commitment to the Development of Ghana,” the conference seeks to take stock of the party’s activities over the year.
Some amendments to its constitution are expected to be made as well as a discussion of the way forward towards Election 2024.
