SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT – THE NATIONAL YOUTH ORGANIZER’S POSITION DEMANDS GOOD RESEARCHER, BRAINY, AND DILIGENT YOUNG MAN WHO UNDERSTANDS THE YOUTH; NANA KWADWO AKWAA IS THE YOUTH CHOICE
New patriotic party (NPP) has been the favourite political party to many Ghanaians from it inception till date. Casting our minds back from the year 2000, every decerning Ghanaian can attest to the fact that, the party virtually has proper initiatives and social interventions to eleviate the entire country from hardship as compared to NDC, where corruption was been considered the mother of the day. In the regime of NDC from 2008 to 2016, the country was plunged into disarray where unemployment rate escalated, electricity challenge popularly known as Dumso collapsed many factories and industries here in Ghana.
For a political party to capture power and to sustain power, all lies in the Bosom of the Youth specifically, the grassroots, party faithfuls, Sympathizers and the lovers of the party. The Grassroots has become the bedrock and the foundation of every Political party because, they are the youth who can work their ass out making sure the party comes to power. Some suffered, some sacrificed all their resources, energy, and the little they have to support the NPP party to capture power and also retained power. But it seems, the foundation or the bedrock has been neglected.
As the party continues preaching ‘ breaking the eight (8) ‘, a lot of questions have been generated and found on every lips of patriots especially the youth is that, who are they going to break the eight with? Meanwhile, breaking the eight as said cannot be achieved on a silver platter but, the involvement of the youth gives the party an assurance concerning the two term canker. Today, all the Grassroots are complaining and ranting everywhere in the country seeking for employment and scholarships where the leadership of the great party has taken into a deaf ears as if they don’t care about their plight.
Not been selective, as the party is preparing itself towards 2024 elcetions, the party needs someone who cares for the youth and understands their problem and has possible remedy to their situation and Nana Kwadwo Akwaa has exceptionally proven himself to be the meticulous and workaholic young guy the grassroots are yearning and vehemently calling upon to lead the youth front. Though, he has not declared his intentions to contest for the position but due to his hard work and the love he has for the youth and the party, they are busily calling on him to lead the youth wing.
The time to break the eight is not about picture modelling and imposition where a person is brought to lead the youth front without the grassroots consent. Normally, when the leadership of the party imposes a youth leader for the grassroots, they suffer as they are seriously crying for employment and other things today, that can assist them to realise their future and their dreams. This is the time the grassroots need a helping hand to support them with Jobs and scholarships. With Nana Kwadwo Akwaa the breaking the eight (8) is possible.
