New membership dues system for NPP

The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has unveiled new membership dues for both its party branches across the country and its external branches abroad to strengthen its financial standing, enhance membership drive, and improve the welfare of its members.

Addressing the media on the development, the NPP Chairman, Stephen Ayesu Ntim, explained that the decision, which was taken during a recent meeting of the NPP’s National Council seeks to consolidate its position in the political landscape and continue its mission to advance the nation’s progress.

Mr Ntim stressed that the party’s constitution enjoins all members to pay dues and also make donations to sustain the party and ensure its growth.

“On July 20, 2023, the National Council (NC) of NPP, which is the second highest decision making body apart from Annual Delegates Conference of the party approved new membership dues for party across the country and also for all the external branches. As the National Chairman of the Party, I duly announce the new membership dues.

“This decision is to restructure the membership dues to boost the finances of the party, improve membership drive and enhance the welfare of party members. In NPP when we say a member in good standing, we are referring to a party member who has been paying his or her dues fully as required,” he stated.

Payment at ease

The NPP Chair further indicated that this new membership dues structure is more convenient, transparent and efficient, noting that “the membership dues mode of payment and procedure ensure accountability”.

“The new membership dues payment system is designed and structured into various categories powered by an in-built technology where every member can easily and conveniently pay their dues by simply dialing *920*270# and following the prompts,” he added.

He pointed out that there are four monthly membership dues categories. These include Bronze category for ₵ 2.00 per month, Sliver Category for ₵ 5.00 per month, Gold Category for ₵ 8.00 per month and Platinum Category for ₵ 10.00 per month.

Mr Ntim said aside the membership dues, the party’s constitution also talks about Patrons. These, he explained, are individual party members who may choose to contribute substantially towards the progress of the party at different levels from constituency, regional and national.

He added that the platform also allows for the collection of the contributions of all patrons at each level. He revealed that there will be benefits to members who pay their dues as a way of motivating members.

“The details will be communicated to the general public soon. The party has outlined a number of activities to help create the necessary awareness and to sensitize party members on this new dues payment system and we call on the media to massively support the party in this regard,” he noted.
