Stephen Asamoah Boateng
The presence of Stephen Asamoah Boateng, popularly called Asabee, at the Bono Regional Conference over the weekend sent some energy into the conference.
Mr. Asamoah Boateng, who has expressed interest in chairing the party from the next National Delegates Conference, said that one of his main visions “is to inject some energy into the party, from grassroots through to national officers to government appointees.”
He said on the sidelines during the conference held in Sunyani that he is in the contest to ensure that the NPP “breaks the eight” through hard work.
Asabee said even though he came into the contest late, he has become the favourite of the party’s rank and file in the quest to “break the eight.”
“Please don’t forget, Ghana must not go back. Forward ever backward never. Let us all be resolute in our quest to break the eight. We don’t want the NDC to spoil the gains we have made for Ghana,” he charged the delegates who were delighted to meet him.
From the conference, Asabee paid courtesy calls on some party stalwarts in the region; former Local Government Minister and Member of Council of Elders of then Brong Ahafo Region, Mr. Adjei Darko and former Brong Ahafo Regional Minister Kwadwo Fordjour.
He lauded their selfless loyalty and appreciated their long service to the party and country.
