Sammy Awuku, will soon be crowned as the National Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), as signals picked on the ground, suggest the current National Youth Organiser is miles ahead of the incumbent John Boadu, who doubles as Acting General Secretary.
Many NPP executives and avid supporters, feel Mr. Awuku, deserves the position of National Organiser and must be given the nod to lead the party to another resounding victory in election 2020.
Sammy Awuku, literally collapsed the youth front of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) by neutralizing its Sidi Abubakar Musah, before, during and after the 2016 Parliamentary and Presidential elections.
Although goes overboard sometimes, Sammy Awuku, has combined good human relations, maturity and interpersonal communications in his political dealings to the admiration of his peers, as well as those above him.
Indeed, Richard Adu, the Wenchi Constituency Youth Organiser of the Party, said this in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at Wenchi in the Brong-Ahafo Region.
He called on the NPP delegates, who would be attending the Party’s national delegates’ congress in 2018, to vote for the National Youth Organiser, so that the fortunes of the Party will shine brightly in election 2020.
Mr. Adu, said the NPP was able to make significant impact to win the 2016 election, partly due to the hard work of the various youth wings of the Party led by Mr. Awuku.
He said, the national youth organizer, personally provided enough financial and technical assistance which enabled the various youth wings of the Party across the country to intensify campaign and reached out to the local voting masses and canvassed for more votes.
“We were able to go round to almost all the deprived communities in the Constituency to reach out to and propagate the manifestoes of the great NPP”, he said.
Describing Mr Awuku as a strong pillar holding the NPP, Mr. Adu, said it was through his influence and other key members that helped in finding lasting solutions to some internal security problems in the NPP.
Mr. Adu, who is the Assemblyman for Ntoase Electoral Area in the Wenchi Municipality, said there was the need for the NPP to recognize and appreciate the selfless services of Mr Awuku, since the youth remains a strong force and pillar of the NPP.
This, he said, would not only motivate other young people to selflessly contribute their quota for the growth of the Party, but it would also encourage the youthful population to join the Party.
Mr. Adu said, despite the NPP’s overwhelming victory in the last election, many voters at the grassroot, were still unaware of the ideologies and philosophies of the NPP, hence the need for the Party, to avoid complacency and sensitise the masses on this and other government poverty reduction intervention policies.
He called on the Party leadership and government, to establish special funds for the youth wing to strengthen and empower the constituencies adequately for effective political campaigns.
Mr. Adu, commended the Constituency executives of the Party for their loyalty and personal contribution that made the NPP to capture political power from the NDC.
He said, since the constituencies remains the strength of the party, there was the need for the leadership to pay regular visits to help in addressing their challenges.
Mr. Adu, cautioned supporters and members of the NPP, to guard against tendencies that would undermine and make the government unpopular, and urged them to sell good policies and programmes of the government to the electorate.
“This is the surest way that our Party can win the confidence of the floating voters and retain political power in the next general election”, he added.
