NPP is almost the best party in Ghana’s political history – John Boadu

General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party, NPP, John Boadu has stated that the NPP is almost the best political entity in Ghana’s history.

In an interview on Joy News channel (April 26), the NPP scribe stressed that the party had performed better than every other party including Kwame Nkrumah’s Convention People’s Party, CPP, of yesteryear.

He pointed to what he said were the systems and practices that the party had put in place citing its organizational abilities in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“By the next four years, we have been evolving as a political party, after all we have been running this democracy for not more than 30 years and if you look at our systems and practices, we are almost the best political party ever.”

Pushed to justify the claim, he responded: “Because the kind of things we are doing… look at last year, even when there was COVID, we were the most active political party… it is organization, it is not just about being in power.

According to him, the claim that the NPP was in power and thus had resources to organize itself was not entirely right, “it is not just about money, it is about human capacity, it is about thinking, it is about putting structures in place.

“The NDC had the resources in 2016, were they able to put together their figures? Were they able? Because they lacked human resources, so it is not just about being in power,” he stressed.
