Founder member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and former spokesperson of His Excellency, the late Alhaji Aliu Mahama, (former Vice President), Mr. David Kankam Boadu, has made known his intention to contest the national chairmanship position of the party.
He disclosed this in an interview with Today at his residence in Amasaman, Accra, while responding to questions pertaining to the future of his political career.
Mr. Boadu, who is deeply rooted in the party’s traditions and has attained a high profile party status, noted that he intends to contest the chairmanship position of the party in the not too distance future.
According to him, “maintaining the victory won by the party in the just ended 2016 poll demanded a leader who demonstrates a high sense of humility and is in touch with the party’s grassroots.”
He further noted that his boundless experience accumulated over the years through his massive engagement in party politics was needed to foster the party’s fortunes in 2020.
“The distinct leadership qualities needed to run such a noble office obviously does not escape my sight. I’m action-driven and very dynamic in my approach towards achieving organisational goals,” he emphasised.
Mr. Boadu is a founder member of the Ghana Democratic Movement (GDM) in the United Kingdom and was very much involved in the NPP UK.
He is also the founder of NPP Milton Keynes until 2006 when he returned to Ghana.
Mr. Boadu opined that he was for the downtrodden and neglected, and therefore poised to take the leadership mantle as chairman of the party.
“I am selfless and my track record speaks volumes of my capabilities,” he concluded.
