Let’s embrace issue based campaign —NDC youth

The Eastern Regional Youth Organiser of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) Haruna Apaw-Wiredu says persistent demonstrations and hurling of insults at the presidency cannot enhance the electoral chances of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) in any way.

Mr. Apaw-Wiredu claimed that the NPP agenda has been to capitalise on the few challenges confronting the economy to score cheap political points.

Inaugurating the Tertiary Educational Institutions Network (TEIN) chapter of the Methodist College of Education (METCOE) in Akyem-Oda in the Eastern Region on Tuesday, the NDC organiser challenged their political opponents to focus on issues-based politics and halt what he described as the “unnecessary demonstrations and insults”.

‘’We are not moved one bit by the countless demonstrations and insults hurled at the government and President John Mahama by NPP,” he said.

“The NPP has over decades demonstrated that it has no patience when it is in opposition. All they know is to capitalise on anything at all, just to win power. You can find out, their forefathers did the same thing to Ghana’s first President, Dr.Kwame Nkrumah.

The NDC regional youth organiser challenged the NPP and other political opponents to offer responsible suggestions by embarking on issues-based politics in the run-up to the next general elections because, according to him the Ghanaian voter is discerning and would not be swayed by the wrong messages.

A Deputy Eastern Regional Youth Organiser of the NDC, Benedict Larson lauded METCOE for ensuring that NDC was vibrant in the college.

The President of the newly inaugurated TEIN chapter of METCOE, Prince Okyere was full of praise for the youth leadership of the NDC in the Eastern Region in ensuring that tertiary students contributed to the political discourse of the party. myjoyonline.com
