President Akufo- Addo also the newly acclaimed presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party(NPP) has send out an inspiring message to defeated candidates of the recent parliamentary elections by the NPP.
About 42 incumbent MPs lost in the just ended primaries elections in the June 20th elections which was held this year.
About only 5 candidates of the defeated MPs were said to have reported to parliament for the next sitting after the elections.
As part of the president’s speech after being acclaimed as the presidential candidate for the NPP yesterday, this was what he had to say,
“Losing one election cannot and does not mean the end of your political life. I am a living example. I urge all of us to get over our disappointment quickly unite. This is the message I gave to the 42 losing members of Parliament who lost when I invited them to meet with at the Jubilee House on Thursday evening. I believe the message went down well, especially if we recollect the impressive words several of them uttered after their defeat. We have a good story to tell and we should go out to tell.”
“On every sector of our lives, we should show the difference between the NPP way of tackling problems and the way our opponents do it. We grow the economy, they shrink the economy. We create the properly regulated enabling atmosphere for businfor businesses to flourish,” the president remarked.
