I’m bringing energy, motivation and excitement to spur NPP to victory in 2024 — Asabee

The Director General for State Interests and Governance Authority (SIGA), Stephen Asamoah Boateng has said his reason for lacing his boots for chairmanship race of the New Patriotic Party is to bring back the energy, love and excitement that once held the party firmly together.

He noted that those were essential to bridge disconnection between the party’s top executives and the grassroots base needed to breaking the eight year electoral cycle.

Speaking on PM Express on Joy News Channel, he bemoaned the disconnection between the NPP’s top hierarchy and the grassroots base pointing out the urgent need to rejuvinate the base which serves as a foundation holding the party firmly to the ground.

“I understand that when you get a good leadership whether a party or nation, you have the strength to advance your objectives and my party is a solid organization with people with all sort of backgrounds.

“…but when you come into government, sometimes there is a disconnect and I have noticed the disconnection and it happened to us when we were in government before, and we lost. Same thing happened to the NDC, and they lost.

“So I thought to myself that why should I sit down for that disconnection to continue to linger for my party to lose in 2024,” he stated.

Mr. Asamoah Boateng who is affectionately called Asabee indicated that Ghanaians are better off with the NPP than the NDC. “so why must I sit and watch us lose power.”

He announced his intention to contest the chairmanship position few months ago with a new rave.

Serving in various capacities as former Information and Local Government Minister in the Kufuor administration, and now Director General of SIGA, gives him the impetuous to rub shoulders with the top hierarchy as well as communicate effectively with the grassroots base to build the party.

The SIGA boss who initially not in the mood to speak about his chairmanship ambitions could no longer resist the flattering temptation of the host of the show.

According to him, his main purpose of becoming the chairman of the party is to energize and motivate members of the party for victory come 2024.
