The youth wing of the People’s National Convention (PNC), has urged the leadership of the party to stand up and speak on crucial matters that concern the nation.
According to them, the party has failed the state due to their lack of participation in major social and religious issues happening in the country.
“The party has failed the state due to our lack of participation in issues including the controversial attempts to introduce Comprehensive Sexuality Education in Ghanaian basic schools despite all the hue and cry by other political parties, the lack of participation by the party has raised concerns for the youth wing about the direction and leadership of the party,” the youth wing stated.
According to Awudu Ishaq, the National Youth Organiser of the PNC, the greatest asset of the party is the youth wing and they would continue to support and assist every activity and decision of the party which was in the best interest of the party.
“As the greatest asset in the party, we are pleading with the leadership to listen to our demands, those at the helm of affairs of the party, clothed with the responsibility of leading the party to remain relevant to the aspirations of the members of the party as well as the generality of the citizenry must sit up and lead appropriately.
“We are also asking the leadership of the party to present their stance on the upcoming referendum on Tuesday December 17, 2019, the raging matter of the impending referendum whether or not to amend Article 55 (3) of the 1992 Constitution would remove the division within the party and create some hope for the future.
“This cannot be the posture of a party desirous of being elected into government since the youth wing is deeply worried and concerned about the apathetic conduct of the leadership of the party and cannot take it anymore,” Mr Ishaq cautioned. -citinewsroom.com
