Northern NPP youth kick-start campaign

Youth groups within the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Northern Region have kick- started the 2016 electioneering campaign in the region by launching the Dombo Youth Association (DYA).

The association is an amalgamation of NPP youth groups in the Northern Region, charged with the responsibility of helping the party win more parliamentary seats in the 2016 general elections.

It is headquartered in the Tamale North constituency which has been the targeted seat of the party.

At the official launch in Gumani, the association’s President, Fuseini Abdul Majeed urged Ghanaians to ignore what he described as the National Democratic Congress’s (NDC) propaganda that the NPP is an Akan party.

He said members of the association would soon embark on a door-to-door campaign to wrestle power from the governing NDC especially in the Northern Region which is noted to be one of its electoral ‘World Banks’.

According to Mr. Majeed, the region would turn into the NDC’s “rural bank” in the 2016 election.

Mr. Majeed therefore called for volunteerism and commitment from party activists towards achieving the association’s objective.

“Clearly visible is the need to increase our efforts in mobilising grassroot support and stronger commitment to party activities and all other initiatives that will help us win power for the NPP and we believe can resolve our pressing needs and that of the unborn generation,” he said.

He served notice that the association’s members would match the NDC “boot for boot” at the polling stations to avoid any form of rigging.

He asked the electorates to vote massively for Nana Akufo-Addo and all the NPP parliamentary candidates to “rescue them from oppression.”— citifmonline
