Before the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) opens nomination for the elections of its national executives, 24news.news can authoritatively confirm that Nana Ofori Owusu, an investment banker, is lacing his boots for the party chairmanship race.
He has confirmed to 24news.news his intention to contest the PPP National Chairman slot and succeed the incumbent National Chairman, Nii Allotey Brew-Hammond, who will not contest the position again.
Nana Ofori Owusu said he will continue the good works of the incumbent National Chairman and introduce new programmes for the party, saying “it’s time for me to impact my knowledge and experience at the helm of affairs. The Chairman I so admire says he will no longer contest. I need to fill the vacuum that will be left.”
The party, 24news.news can confirm, will elect its national officers next year to steer the affairs of the party for the next four years.
When secured the party’s chairmanship slot, the PPP 2016 Parliamentary candidate for the Efutu constituency stressed that he has a number of projects and programmes to propel the party’s political fortunes in the 2020 elections and beyond.
“Strengthen the party structures at the constituency, regional and national level will be my first priority. I will meet with the party members regularly and put together programmes to ensure that the party is supreme.
“I will also ensure that the Progressive People’s Party members would feel a closer link to the party. The party is supreme and we will make sure to support the structures to grow.”
Nana Owusu, who was once the special assistant to Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, during his ministerial appointment in the Kufuor administration, also worked with the Millennium Development Authority.
He has been a member of the Ghana Growth Fund from 2012 to date.
