Prince Kamal Gumah, a New Patriotic Party (NPP) National Youth Organiser hopeful, has stated that re-energsing the youth by recognising their contribution to the growth and development of the party will brighten chances of retaining power in the 2024 elections.
“Our agenda is to bring members, supporters and sympathisers of the NPP, especially the youth together in unity and harmony more than ever because of the realisation that using the potentials of their faithful, well-wishers and energetic youth will position us well to break the eight years of political party rule so we must get closer to them, give them a listening ear and prioritise their concerns,” he stressed.
Mr Gumah, who made the assertion at a press briefing in Accra, after submitting his nomination forms at the NPP headquarters was of the strong conviction that the party would win the next general election so as to continue its prudent policies, programmes and social interventions.
He called for support and assistance from all members, supporters, well-wishers, faithful and sympathisers of the party as he embarked on the journey to becoming the next national youth organiser of the party adding that “the youth of our party require enough resources to enable them to assist and support the party vigorously and satisfactorily, which I will ensure.
“I have good plans for the party, I believe that when given the power I promise to do more, already I am giving off my best in terms of support and assistance to the youth within and beyond my jurisdiction and I can assure that I will among others, put in place measures to ensure budgetary allocations for regional and constituency youth wing programmes are initiated, facilitate the construction of model regional youth secretariats in all the 16 regions of the country,” Mr Gumah said.
He also pledged to set up a national call center at the national secretariat of the NPP youth wing for collating direct feedback to ensure inclusiveness, consensus building, cohesion and harmony and reiterated that re-energising the youth would re-strategise them in their quest to retain power in the next general election.
Mr Gumah intimated that he would continue to engage in activities that would bring the youth together to fulfil the NPP’s hope, aspiration and agenda of “breaking the eight” and was hopeful that history would be made in 2024 as the first political party in the Fourth Republic to b break the eight and assured that “I will do my best to serve the good interest of the youth now and when I am given the opportunity to serve the party as National Youth Organiser”.
