PPP Inaugurates Upper West Regional Office

As part of its preparations to contest the 2024 Presidential and Parliamentary elections, the Progressive People’s Party inaugurated its Upper West Regional office in Wa on Friday 15th December, 2023.

In his speech, the National Secretary traced the proud history of the PPP since it was formed in 2012 and highlighted the Party’s consistency in presenting alternative policies to governance in Ghana, particularly in the areas of Economic Development, Good Governance and tackling Corruption. He also decried the winner takes all politics in Ghana whereby only members of the ruling Political Party get the opportunity to serve in Government which he said, undermines participation and inclusivity. He indicated that, a future PPP government will include all Ghanaians both in the country and the diaspora, who are capable, to serve the country.

Mr Edmundson also touched on some key Constitutional reforms the PPP will tackle when elected into power in 2024. These include:

  • Making Asset Declaration of Public officials public knowledge and a requirement before being sworn into office and after serving their term
  • Making the Attorney General independent of the President and separate from the Minister of Justice
  • Preventing MPs from becoming Ministers of State so that they can focus on their primary duty checking the Executive
  • Giving power to the people to elect all District Assembly Members and District/Municipal/Metropolitan Chief Executives to ensure local accountability and rapid development.

He charged members to tell their fellow Ghanaians that there is hope and that the PPP is the alternative Party that seeks to bring systematic change that will bring about development and progress for us all. He also encouraged the Progressive faithful, to register more members through the Eva Registration Platform via WhatsApp on 0503517348 and the Short code *931#.

Mr. Edmundson also used the occasion to announce that the Party is opening nominations for Parliamentary Candidates from 18th December 2023 till 31st January 2024.

Present at the occasion were the National Secretary, Remy Paa Kow Edmundson; National Youth Coordinator, Faisal Abu Sadat; Regional Chairman, Matthew Dumah; other Regional, Constituency Executives and Party members as well as Naa Yakubu Botigi, the representative of the Magu Naa.
