A front-runner in the New Patriotic Party –UK chapter secretary race, Dr Da Costa Aboagye has promised to set up a think tank within the NPP secretariat to help the President, Nana Addo achieve the much touted ‘Ghana Beyond Aid’ agenda.
According to him the president’s vision to moving the country from dependence on aid was laudable, however a think tank will help provide strategic directions and assistance to make the agenda a reality.
Among other things stated in his manifesto, Dr. Aboagye said he was ready to deliver on the Collective Change and Restructuring of the NPP-UK Branch by ensuring inclusive and servant leadership.
He will, therefore, called on other members of the branch of the party to support his vision ahead of this year’s elections and leverage on the positive momentum to promote the wellbeing of members irrespective of their geographical location.
He said his proposals if implemented, will go a long way to help the NPP UK as the party to expand and grow and be a major force behind the party both home and abroad.
He said he hopes to introduce a style of leadership which is morally imperative, to exercise the values of empathy, compassion, justice, and equity.
As the acting secretary of the Manchester chapter, he said he believes in putting the needs of party members first to enable them to perform to the best of their abilities.
TESCON outside Ghana
He stated in his manifesto that he wishes to champion that creation of the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) first ever TESCON; the student/youth wing of the party, outside Ghana.
He said other priority areas on his manifesto was ensuring unity, access to relevant information and effective record keeping which will begin with the creation of a functional website for the party’s UK branch that will serve members with all relevant information and records they need.
Dr. Aboagye said he was keen on instituting a welfare scheme aimed at supporting members in times of need and also hosting various human-development programs that will help build members’ capacity.
On ROPAL, he said he intends to canvas support for the full implementation of the law by 2020.
