The leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the United Kingdom (UK) wishes to extend warm greetings to the National Executives, Party members, sympathizers, and the media.
The attention of the Branch Secretariat has been drawn to a frivolous publication circulating on various media platforms titled, “NPP UK BRANCH DECLARES FOR DR. BAWUMIA”, supposedly from individuals residing in the United Kingdom. This publication claims that the NPP UK has pledged its unwavering support for Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
The NPP UK Branch has not made an official declaration in support of any presidential candidate for the upcoming primaries. The purported publication in question is a complete fabrication, intended to mislead the public and sow confusion and disunity within our Party.
The Branch Executive Committee has not engaged in any form of meeting directing or authorising the Branch Secretariat to issue any communique to that effect. We wish to state unequivocally that the old Secretariat’s letterhead was forged and deceitfully utilised to mislead the public in Ghana and in the UK.
On the eve of the special voting conference on 26th August 2023, the Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia invited all the delegates from the 27 External Branches to his campaign office in Accra just as it was done by most of the candidates. Indeed, the NPP UK representatives for the special conference were the Branch Chairman, the Secretary and the Women Organiser who were all present.
