A youth group linked to the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the Krobo Youth for Mahama, has pledged its unflinching support for President Mahama and has vowed to work hard to ensure a second term victory for him in the December polls.
Speaking at the group leaders’ conference held at Oklemekuku at Odumase Krobo, the Convener of the group, Francis Amanor, a former Tertiary Education Institutions Network (TEIN) executive of the Koforidua Polytechnic said, “Our group includes young men and women who share in the vision of the NDC and its 2016 agenda 50-50 in the Eastern Region.”
“The NDC has proven over the years that it is the party for the nation, not for a few, through infrastructural development, improved health care delivery, improved security, numerous social interventions in our communities, and throughout the country.”
“Our objective is to ensure that his Excellency John Dramani Mahama secures an overwhelming victory come December 7, 2016 and to ensure the Eastern Region NDC snatches eight parliamentary seats from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to add to the seven the party currently has.”
“The seats we will work hard for the NDC to snatch from the NPP include Asuogyaman, Ayensuano, Abetifi, Fanteakwa North, Abirim, Suhum, Akim Oda and Ofoase-Ayirebi and as a group, we will reach out to all the communities across the Krobo constituencies to ensure an effective mobilisation of the youth and first time voters.”
The Chief Executive of the Lower Manya Municipal Assembly, Frederick Acolatse, who chaired the function, urged the youth to work hard to garner massive votes for the President and the NDC parliamentary candidates in all the Krobo constituencies.
“ I urge you to extend your influence to all Krobo speaking people in every part of the Eastern Region since we need all of them to come out in their numbers to show their love for President Mahama by voting massively for hm.”
An Adviser to the Krobo Youth for Mahama, Owula Mangortey went through the NDC Green book and highlighted the many infrastructural developments and social interventions of the government.
He said “if Nana Oye Lithur is to speak of the impact of the social intervention programmes in the rural and urban poor communities that will get the electorates expressing gratitude to President Mahama by way of massive votes in the December elections”.
”As we work hard to navigate phase two of the Transformational Agenda with Mahama as our leader and president, we are convinced that more initiatives and development projects shall be rolled out.”
“President Rawlings had eight years to complete his agenda. President Kufuor had eight years. President Mahama deserves eight years to leave us a legacy and a great heritage, I am urging you to work hard to ensure total and uncontestable victory for President Mahama,” Owula Mangortey told the youth.
