Freddie Blay, the immediate past national chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said he left a legacy of continuity, unity and hard work in the party.
Speaking at the just-ended national delegates’ conference of the NPP, Blay said, “I’ve done what I could. With all my team members, we put in efforts, and I believe the delegates and the membership know what we’ve been able to go through.”
“There’ve been peace and unity. And we want to build even a stronger party … I am a proud member. I will leave tonight (16 July) believing that what we’ve left is a legacy of continuity, unity, hard work and the legacy of working together.
He added, “I think that is stronger than any other legacy you can talk of …This is only eight years that I’ve served my party [as national chairman] and I feel privileged …”
