Sarfo Raphael Patrick (Deputy National TESCON coordinator) writes
I joined the party leadership led by Nana boakye nana B , the hardworking and committed National youth Organiser , TESCON coordinators and TESCON members to celebrate the climax of the TESCON @ 20 at Ho .
The president of Ghana HE Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo and his Vice , Dr Mahamadu Bawumiah were the special guest to the event. Present at the gathering were many ministers of state and CEOs of this government .
The activities of the programme started early Monday morning where the TESCON members and the leadership walked through the principal streets of Ho to display our achievements so far in government for the past three years.This street campaign displayed placards indicating the solid achievements of President Akuffo Addo
Among the achievements were the introduction of Free SHS , restoration of Teacher and Nursing training allowances , the introduction of Tertiary based scholarships in Ghana for the first time , job creation through NABCO,, afforestation , cocoa pollination etc , Constant supply of power killing DUMSOR , digitization of Ghana’s economy Nd many others
Even though walking through the principal streets of Ho was perceived so intimidating because of the history of unfriendly posture of the people toward our tradition , and the fact that we thought it was not our backyard , the TESCON. Soldiers displayed the commitment and without inducement attitude and made our mission clear by showing our achievements to the people . We made a strong statement at Ho with our street campaign
It is important to state that , the street campaign attracted so many people who publicly came out to hail the Npp and President Akuffo Addo for his commitment to his promises to Ghanaians . Our earlier perception about the Volta region as anti to NPP changed after our street campaign .
The next day , the actual climax of the anniversary was held at the Ho polytechnic auditorium . Walking through and around the Ho polytechnic, many delegates who attended the anniversary applauded president Kuffour and the Npp for the massive infrastructure that was put up . Great and massive
The climax witnessed speeches upon speeches from the dignitaries who attended the programme . Historical documentaries and stories by eye witness were told about the formation and rational behind the formation of TESCON .
The president of Ghana delivered as usual a soul touching speech to TESCON members and other people who attended the show . Kudos His Excellency Nana Addo Danquah Akufo – Addo
I want to use this platform to applaud Nana Boakye for the successful organizational skills that gave us that beautiful programme . It was really successful .
As the Deputy National TESCON Coordinator , I had opportunity to be an active participant of the celebration . I also made another solid history and one day when the story of TESCON will re narrated to the youth in the future probably , the next 20 years , I will be in the position to re produce what happened and what I heard to the members then .
A singular honour was when I joined the president and the Vice President plus other big wigs of the party and government to cut the anniversary CAKE . This picture will be kept under my pillow . Very memorable .
Commitment , without inducement!!!
