The National Youth Organiser of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Henry Nana Boakye has urged the youth to rally behind the party during the December elections.
According to Nana Boakye, the NPP led government has put in place several projects and policies which has significantly improved the living standards of the youth.
Speaking at the party’s celebration of the International Youth Day on Wednesday, Nana Boakye said he is confident the youth wing of the party will work to ensure the NPP is retained in the December polls.
He further assured the party of the youth wings unflinching support in retaining President Akufo-Addo and Vice-President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
“Today we have this pandemic which is global in nature and we never anticipated it, but yet, President Akufo-Addo has cushioned youth in the country. This years election is going to be an election Ghana has never witnessed before because young persons would like to have massive mobilisations and a year we would have seen a lot of youth rallies but unfortunately, because of the pandemic, we cannot but we the youth, we are assuring the New Patriotic Party that whatever it takes and any new strategy we can come up with to make sure Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is elected for the second term and Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia also as the Vice-President, we shall do it.”
