The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has banned all activities associated with internal party contests.
The party said prior to and during its Conference on 18th to 20th December 2021, no billboards or sign boards, banners or any kind of outdoor signage with the images or names of individual members, with or without the consent of the individual, shall be acceptable.
A statement signed by the Director of Communications of the party, Yaw Buaben Asamoa also directed that, no t-shirts, flyers, brochures, and souvenirs, branded or embossed with the portraits and names of individuals, shall be allowed within the precincts of the Conference, including, but not limited to places of accommodation for delegates.
The statement said any person, with or without their consent, whose image is flaunted on any advocacy material and who does not take active steps to desist from any public displays of aspiration for position within the precincts of Greater Kumasi, runs a higher risk of disqualification when nominations are declared opened.
The statement notes that the 2021 National Delegates Conference is a time of renewal for the Party. It adds that though the Party cherishes the tradition of democratic competition, it believes well-meaning aspirants should appreciate the need for such measures.
