Patricia Appiagyei leads unity walk
…Asokwa rally strengthens party cohesion ahead of 2024 elections


About five thousand members and supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) gathered on Sunday, May 5, 2024, for a unity walk in Asokwa, led by the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) Madam Patricia Appiagyei, alongside her recent primary challengers, Francis Nana Yaw Boakye and Edmund Kyei.

The event was initiated by Madam Patricia Appiagyei, affectionately known as Mama Pat, who currently serves as a Deputy Majority Leader in the Parliament of Ghana. Having secured the nomination to represent the Asokwa constituency for a fourth term following the NPP parliamentary primaries in January 2024, Mama Pat organized the unity walk to foster solidarity and strengthen the party’s position ahead of the 2024 parliamentary elections.

Participants, including some regional party executives and Albert Adu Boahen, the Managing Director of Metro Mass Transit Limited and a notable figure from the Asokwa constituency, marched from Dompoase Junction to Millennium Plaza. The procession was vibrant with drumming, dancing, and displays of the party’s red, blue, and white colors. Placards carried messages such as ‘Let us unite to break the 8’, ‘For free SHS to progress vote NPP’, ‘Dr. Bawumia for President. We are breaking the 8 with Mama Pat’, and ‘Bold Solutions for our future’. Many supporters also wore T-shirts branded with images of Mama Pat and Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the party’s flagbearer for the upcoming presidential election.

During the event, Mama Pat addressed the crowd, emphasizing the importance of unity within the party. “The fight ahead of us is going to be very difficult. However, we can only defeat our political opponents when we work in unison. Today, I am very happy that our son Edmund Kyei and Nana Yaw Boakye are here with us, showing that we are more united than ever and ready for the task ahead,” she said.

She further articulated the shared goal of supporting Dr. Bawumia’s vision and the party’s mission to secure enough votes to break the eight-year governance cycle, underscoring that this objective is achievable only through collective effort and unity.

Both Nana Yaw Boakye and Edmund Kyei echoed Mama Pat’s sentiments on unity, urging party members to set aside internal conflicts and focus on a cohesive effort to overcome political adversaries. They assured the party faithful that unity would be the key to their success in the upcoming elections.
