Opposition stunts don’t scare us – Sylvester Tetteh

Opposition stunts don’t scare us – Sylvester Tetteh

Member of Parliament (MP) for the Ngleshie Amanfrom Constituency, Sylvester Tetteh, has said that the NPP is unperturbed by the distractions from the opposition party.

He underscored the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) prediction of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) losing the 2024 elections as a bid to distract the party.

“And you see, having been hit with the news of EIU, that the NPP is likely to lose the 2024 elections is a recipe for the morale of our own party base to go down drastically,” he said.

Mr. Tetteh is of the firm belief that nothing is capable of wrecking the massive win for the aspiring flagbearer hopeful, Alan John Kyerematen in the coming internal elections of their party.

He stated that the crowd pulled over the weekend was groundbreaking and a show of hungry delegates ready to salvage the country’s economic woes by voting for the right candidate.

Speaking on Good Morning Ghana on Metro TV on Tuesday, 2nd May 2023, Mr. Tetteh although acknowledged the difficult task associated with getting support from people, he noted that the team was on course with serious hard work to get the needed numbers for their massive win.

“We did one in Kumasi and this is the second one. And in Kumasi, it is expected because that is the base of the NPP. It is very difficult to organize such a political programme in Accra, everybody reckons that. But, we have done some work on the grounds and I’m not ready to share it,” he said.

The Ngleshie Amanfrom MP noted that he is not surprised about the sabotage by some people but rather focused on working on the grounds to see Alan Kyerematen win the flagbearership race.

Sylvester Tetteh also admonished delegates to be circumspect enough and choose beyond leaders whose messages resonate only with their parties.

“If you are an NPP supporter and a delegate for that matter and you are going to the polls to elect a flagbearer, elect a flagbearer that resonates beyond the 220, 000 registered voters. So the first question you ask yourself is, which of these aspirants will resonate well? Alan talks of experience, uniting the country together,” he told Dr. Randy Abbey.

He also noted that the only distraction to the victory in the 2024 elections is the emotional withdrawal from their agenda, a defect he believes cost them in the past elections.

“The biggest threat to NPP survival in 2024 is apathy – the threat of apathy. All the elections w have lost, in 2008, we lost due to apathy. Our numbers dropped from over 900,000 to 500, 000 in 2020 because of apathy. So you need to rejuvenate the base of our party to avoid the incidence of apathy. And to fight apathy, you look at where your strength is, maximize and energize it, and you are done,” he asserted.

Mr. Tetteh, however, extended gratitude to the leaders and campaign team for their showmanship over the weekend.
