"NPP Epitomizes Selflessness" - Ama Busia to Party Members
A Founding member of the New Patriotic Party Madam Ama Bame Busia has intimated that the New Patriotic Party was established by people who had the fortitude and the spirit of selflessness and has challenged the youth and members of the party in general to replicate same.
The former 1st vice Chairperson, former member of the council of the state as well as sister of the late Kofi Abrefa Busia former Prime Minister of the Republic of Ghana said this when Dr. Nana Afriyie a medical officer accompanied Madam Mary Posch-Oduro, NPP welfare Committee Member and founding member of the party in Germany to her residence in Accra.
Mama Mary Posch-Oduro who currently serves the party as a member of the welfare committee has also in the past held numerous positions in NPP-Germany, including founding Treasurer (1993 - 1997), branch Women Organiser (1993 -1999), and organizing secretary (2001 - 2004).
She together with Dr. Nana Afriyie and some party members of the Youth Employment Authority called on her where she shared her wise counsel of selflessness which needs to be embraced by party members of this generation.
Madam Ama Busia recounted the days she was in exile with her late brother Dr. Kofi Abrefa Busia in London and Simon Diedong Dombo assumed the leadership as the opposition leader in the early days of Ghana's independence epitomizes the sacrifices and selflessness exhibited by the founding fathers of Dankwa-Busia-Dombo tradition. She urged party members to eschew greed or selfishness that is creeping in and trying to create disaffection for the party.
Ama Busia said she will soon be launching a book later this year that will chronicle the genealogy of Dankwa-Busia-Dombo tradition which is not available to latter-day generation of the party folks to imbibe the sacrifices that were made by the founding fathers.
The ever-glowing, eloquent, and highly learned Ama Busia will be 85years later this year.
The team also visited the Ailing Alhaji Abubakar Abdul- Rahaman affectionately called Chairman Short at his residence in Accra. Alhaji Short is fondly remembered during his time as Upper West Regional Chairman and for taking the NPP in the Upper West Region from Zero Parliamentary seats to five seats when he served as Chairman of the party in the Region during the 2016 general elections.
Alhaji Short has been unwell for some time now so the team visited him to wish him well.
