The Ashanti Regional Youth Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Dennis Kwakwa, has called on the youth wing of the party to stand prepared and ensure a sound and emphatic victory in the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections in December.
He said the economic policies and programmes rolled out by the President Akufo Addo-Bawumia-led NPP government was enough justification for their mandate to be renewed to continue with the good works they were doing for the country.
Mr Kwakwa said this at the close of a capacity building workshop organised in Kumasi by the Ashanti Regional Youth Wing of the party for the party's constituency youth organisers, executives of the Tertiary Students Confederacy of NPP (TESCON) and leaders of identifiable youth groups in the party.
According to Mr Kwakwa, the workshop, among others, had prepared the minds of the party’s youth and the other groups with strategies that could enable them to play active and significant roles before, during and after the elections.
He said the preparation processes called for commitment, dedication, hard work and zeal to support the party to win handsomely.
The Regional Youth Organiser reminded the participants that effective monitoring of the elections should be seen as an important ingredient and, as such, encouraged them to volunteer to become agents of the party at polling stations on the day of voting.
On the upcoming voters registration exercise, Mr Kwawa said, it was crucial that they got themselves involved in the process as well as encourage other members of the party to register in their numbers.
The NPP National Youth Organiser, Mr Henry Nana Boakye, said the government of the NPP had in the period of its three years in office placed great emphasis o youth development including interventions like the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy and payment of teacher and nursing training allowances.
He said the President recognised the youth as future leaders who should be provided all the necessary training and guidance required, so they could contribute meaningfully to the socio-economic and political development of the country.
He advised the NPP youth to vote massively in the upcoming elections and support the NPP government to retain power and continue with the good works it was doing for the country.
Present at the closing of the workshop were the Technical Advisor to the Vice President, Dr Gideon Boako; Ashanti Regional Organiser of the NPP, Mr Francis Adomako; Deputy Ashanti Regional Organiser of the NPP, Mr Kwaku Atta Sarpong; Ashanti Regional Research Officer of the NPP, Mr Patrick Acheampong.
Others were, Ashanti Regional Financial Secretary of NPP, Mr K. Abagna, and Deputy Ashanti Regional Youth Organiser of NPP, Mr Yahaya Salifu.
