Bono Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) Kwame Baffoe has charged government to deeply engage the party before initiating policies .
He said the governments Covid-19 relief packages contributed to the massive loss of many Parliamentary seats in the 2020 elections .
“Government never released the funds. This was one of the campaigns against the party and it affected our fortunes in the region,” he said.
He added that it also created huge division amongst some constituency executives.
“There was mistrust amongst constituency executives because it was alleged that some of them took the money and never distributed it which wasn’t the case
Mr Baffor urged government must engage the party before announcing any policy .
The NPP in Bono Region prior to the 2020 general elections occupied 11 parliamentary seats out of the 12 seats in the region .
But the party is currently occupying 6 seats, a situation the Chairman believes could have been avoided if the party was united .
Mr Baffour also blamed the poor performance on internal wrangling and mudslinging in the party .
He indicated that the party would operate with the constitution to ensure aggrieved persons all whipped in line .
This he believes will strengthen the party and prepare them towards achieving the goal of breaking the 8 year electoral cycle .
