As part of its preparations for the 2024 general election, the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) has created its first regional office in Wa, Upper West Region.

At the inauguration event, the party’s National Secretary, Remy Paa Kow Edmundson, stated that the party was reorganizing in order to capture power in the December 7, 2024 general election.

He stated that the party will create similar offices in other locations in order to choose its parliamentary candidates and flag bearer ahead of the general election.

He stated that the PPP, as a people’s party, will offer progress to everybody, regardless of political affiliation.

Mr. Edmundson used the opportunity to restate the party’s request for the Ministry of Justice to be separated from the Attorney General’s (AG) Office, and he urged for a merger of the AG’s office and the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) to make the battle against corruption more effective.

He stated that the OSP needed to be more autonomous than it now is, with the AG’s office directing matters to the OSP for inquiry.

He repeated the PPP’s view that Ministers of State should not be appointed from Parliament and, as a result, asked for the 1992 Constitution to be amended, which says that two-thirds of ministers must be selected from Parliament.

Mr Edmundson further stated that a PPP government will guarantee that Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) be chosen rather than appointed by the President, so that they become responsive to the people’s ambitions and needs rather than satisfying the President.

The PPP’s Regional Chairman, Matthew Dumah, expressed his gratitude for the opening of the regional office, saying that prior to the construction of the regional party office, they had been operating from rented buildings, and he was grateful to the Mangu Naa, Naa Abu Langyingkpani, for donating the land to the PPP for free for the office.
