A native from Atwima Nwabiagya Municipal Assembly in the Ashanti Region and NPP Regional Medical Team Member, John Kwame Duodu (SIR JOHN) seconds the National Executive Committee of the New Patriotic Party as the month of September, 2021 for mass membership registration for its members and also welcomes in new members who wishes to join the NPP Fraternity.
There is a saying that goes “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” “You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.” “Self–worth is so vital to your happiness if you don’t feel good about you; it’s hard to feel good about anything else.”
On 10th September, 2021 at a Press Conference Addressed by the NPP GENERAL SECRETARY, JOHN BOADU declares September 2021 as the Month of Mass Registration for New Patriotic Party with the following Statements and I quote:
The remaining days in the month of September has been declared by the National Executive Committee of the Party as the month for mass membership registration and updating of existing names in the polling station register. This will see the party undertake a nationwide exercise of compiling a register of all members of the party as well as persons wishing to be members.
The core requirement is that you promote and defend the good name of the Party at all times and be loyal and truthful to the Party and its policies. When you write your name, you will become an ambassador of the Party, living and breathing the best of the NPP. You will share with your family, neighbor, friend and co-worker, what you see, feel and hear about the things the NPP is doing. You will talk about the new road in your area, your child in SHS, your nephew employed as a nurse, your uncle selling his produce to the new 1D1F factory in your village.
You will share your experiences from enjoying regular electricity, the easy renewal of your NHIS card and driving license. You will talk about your new job with the Ambulance Service and how the digital address system makes it easy to help people. You will project the NPP everywhere you go. Then you will feel the satisfaction of being part of a party that cares deeply about people.
Members of the Party at all levels are therefore requested to update their membership of the party by visiting their respective polling stations to get their details captured in the polling station register. Persons wishing to join the Party are equally requested to also visit their polling stations and provide their relevant details to be captured in the new polling station register.
President Akufo-Addo will, in this 20-days mass registration period visit his polling station at Abuakwa South in the Eastern Region to update his membership of the party in the new register. Vice President Bawumia will also go to his polling station in Walewale to update his membership of the Party.
National Officers of the Party, Ministers of State and all government appointees who are party members will all participate in this mass registration exercise by visiting their respective polling stations to get their details captured in the new register.
In accordance with Article 3(10) of the Party Constitution, the membership register shall be kept at the polling station levels. The register shall be updated every six months.
The polling station registers shall be in the custody of polling station executives, who shall avail themselves at a publicized venue in and around the polling station and within the electoral area during the 20-day period of the mass registration. (i.e. from 10th September to 30th September). The exercise at the polling stations shall be supervised by the respective polling respective Electoral Area Coordinators, Constituency Executives, Regional Executives and the National Executive Officers.
Ahead of this exercise, the party has already distributed polling station register to all the 38,000+ polling stations in the country.
For emphasis, the Party wishes to state emphatically that no prospective registrant shall be denied the opportunity to get his/her details captured in the polling register.
This registration exercise has nothing to do with polling station elections slated for January 2022. The Party will, at the appropriate time, come out with separate rules and regulations for the conduct of the said elections. This is just a mobilization exercise for the over 6.7million Ghanaians who voted for us in the last elections as well as persons who are impressed and satisfied with our policies, and accordingly wish to identify with the NPP.
The Party has equally printed and submitted constituency registers to all the 275 constituencies of the country. It is expected that at the end of the mass registration period, the data contained in the polling station registers of a particular constituency will be transferred into the constituency register by the constituency secretariat.
Equally, entries made in the polling station registers will be transferred to the constituency registers from time to time. In the same vein, regional registers will be compiled from the entries in constituency registers at regular intervals.
This membership registration forms part of the party’s restructuring and reorganization efforts towards breaking the eight-year governance cycle and thus ensuring a resounding victory for the party in 2024.
NPP Regional Medical Team Member, John Kwame Duodu (SIR JOHN) reacting to the above statement said that “I take this opportunity to thank for the National Executive committee for initiation and therefore plead to Regional and Constituency Executives to help this exercise to achieve its aims and objectives.”
We shouldn’t deny anyone because politics is about number and your future depends on the decision you make today. The party structures are there to help and guide us to make meaningful decisions.
We should therefore get ourselves involved in the ongoing exercise.
It is therefore anticipated that members of the party will accord this important exercise their maximum cooperation and support.
