The Regional Youth Wing of the New Patriotic Party has called on the supporters of the party to rally firmly behind its leaders to achieve the ultimate goal of retaining power in the 2024 Presidential and Parliamentary elections.

During the maiden edition of the Ahafo Youth Wing and Tescon Conference organized on Sunday, August 6, 2023, the Regional Youth Organizer, Mr. Seth Oduro, admonished the young people of the party to remain unshaken and work very hard to win the 2024 polls convincingly.

According to Mr. Oduro, Ghanaians will not forgive the NPP if the party fails to succeed in the next year’s polls since it is an uncontestable fact that the NPP has the antidote to the country’s development.

” Ghanaians have hope in the NPP. They know that we are the ones that can develop this country. I am not staying this long for nothing. The records are there. Ghanaians find it very difficult to send the NPP into opposition, and that is the reason why anytime we lose power, it is by the skin of our teeth. In 2008, in spite of the election being run three times after Tain, we still lost that election by a little over forty thousand votes,” he stated.

Mr. Oduro emphasized the need for the base of the party, specifically the youth, to hold to the values and principles that underpinned the formation of the tradition and, more importantly, cherish them.

He hinted that the election of 2024 will certainly be a contest to see which political party will put the right strategies in place to win the hearts of the nation’s young people. He demonstrated to the gathering, mostly youth, that the statistical information of the country shows that Ghana has a youth voter population, hence the need to ensure the young people of the party are advised to remain resolute.
“There is no doubt that the party that wins the youth for itself wins the 2024 elections. The statistical service report from the Population Census clearly shows that the youth dominate in terms of population demographics, and if you extract the voter population from the larger population, it is even clearer. That is the reason why, as a party, we need to engage our teaming youth so we avoid apathy and, more seriously, work very hard so we can win the election ahead of us with ease.

Mr. Oduro made this call during the Ahafo Youth Wing and Tescon Conference organized at Goaso Nursing and Midwifery College. In attendance were a host of party bigwigs. Notable about them were the Ahafa regional minister, Hon. George Boakye, the regional chairman, Mr. Kwabena Owusu Sekyere National Youth Organizer, Mr. Salam Mustapha, National Tescon Coordinator, Mr. Eric Asonade, Hon. Hon. Slyvester Tetteh, MP for Botianor Ngleshie, Hon. Carlos Ahenkora, MP for Tema South, Hon. Peter Amewu, MP for Hohoe, Hon. Evans Opoku Bobie, MP for Asunafo North and deputy sports minister, MDCEs in the region, regional executives, Constituency executives, Tescon members, polling Station youth organizers, and a host of other youth-based groups.
