Mrs Asumahinneh, who represents the Western Region on the Council and a native of Jomoro, gave the advice at an annual delegates’ conference of the New Patriotic Party’s branch at Mpataba in the Western Region.
The conference afforded the executives the opportunity to discuss issues in the Party notably constitutional amendment and how to chat a new path.
Mrs Asumahinneh urged the party members to reconcile and forgive those who had offended them and forge ahead in unity and love to brighten the fortunes of the NPP and accelerate development.
She appealed to the assembly members to reconsider their stance and vote for a second time to endorse Mr Eric Muah, the President's nominee.
Mrs Asumahinneh asked party members to open their doors to make the NPP attractive to new members who desire to join.
Mr Paul Essien, the Member of Parliament for Jomoro, thanked polling station executives for their vigilance and hard work which culminated in a landslide victory of the NPP in the December 2016 general election.
He also appealed to the assembly members to put all their differences aside and endorse the President's nominee for DCE. Mr Essien said the District’s share of the District Assemblies Common Fund for the year had been disbursed but due to the absence of a DCE it was impossible to access the fund to plan the development of the area.
