A group within Ghana’s opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) rooting for the election of Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo Addo and his running mate Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia was launched in Philadelphia, USA over the weekend. The group aims to support a campaign to garner support for the twice failed presidential candidate ahead of the NPP’s primaries in October. Speakers at the event included Dr. Amoako Tuffour, a former policy adviser, Gabby Otchere Darko, Executive Director of the Dankwah Institute, Bernard Antwi Boasiako, Ashanti Regional Chairman of the party, Nana Adwoa Sarfo, MP for Dome-Kwabenya as well as executives from the different NPP constituencies in the USA. There was a special performance by Okyerema Asante, the celebrated Ghanaian percussionist.
