The Eastern Regional Treasurer of the NPP, Mr. Ben Kumi Larbi, who made the call said since the December 7, 2020, general election was crucial to the NPP, the committee should involve all functionaries of the party and intensify their house-to-house and door-to-door campaigns.
He also urged them to extend their campaign to lorry parks, markets, churches, and other places where people are found in their numbers.
Mr. Kumi Larbi said he was happy that all the four other contestants in the recent NPP primary had resolved to rally behind the parliamentary candidate, Mr. Charles Acheampong, to enhance his chances of retaining the parliamentary seat for the party come December 7, 2020.
