Heaven helps those who help themselves – Kufuor counsels NPP

Former President John Agyekum Kufuor has unequivocally told the New Patriotic Party to banish bickering in the party if it really wants to form the next government in 2017.

Winning the general elections would not fall like manna, he suggested, adding that the party would have to put in more efforts to attain power.

In an exclusive interview on Onua 95.1FM’s morning show, Yen Sempa Friday, Mr. Kufuor prayed that the NPP, the party on whose ticket he rode to presidency, would emerge victorious in the November polls.

However, the former president reminded his party members of the popular catchphrase, “heaven helps those who help themselves.”

The entire interview was in the local language, Akan, and touched on various issues including his experience as a boy during the era of Ghana’s first president Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, his presidency between 2000 and 2008 and the current state of affairs in the country.

The New Patriotic Party is yet to completely come out of the turmoil which culminated into the dismissal of three national executives of the party, including the chairman and general secretary late 2015.

Former President Kufuor via Onua FM made a clarion call on the leadership of the NPP to go into the 2016 elections with a united front.

He emphasized that the country has not been well managed by the NDC-led government to explain why the country needs a change in the forthcoming elections.

With the poor performance of the government, the NPP is a better option to run the country’s affairs, he pointed out.

However, he cautioned, if the NPP does not unite, victory would elude the party and that would be a big disappointment to Ghanaians.
