The National Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammy Awuku, has called on the Ghanaian youth to lead the campaign for change ahead of the 2016 elections. He said this and more on AU -Day, May 25 to the youth.
On AU-Day, thousands of Ghanaian youth joined the leadership of the youth wing of the NPP to ‘walk’ for change.
The health walk began at the Ayi Mensah Toll Booth and ended at the Peduase Lodge. It was during the health walk that NPP’s Sammy Awuku urged the youth to come out in their large numbers and vote for the party.
Awuku told the youth that the NPP’s sole aim to is to bring about positive change in the country, but that the party would be needing their help in terms of their votes to achieve their objectives.
Making reference to neighboring countries who have experienced change as a result of the youths voting for the ‘right’ parties, he made mention of Nigeria, and Cote d’Ivoire.
He told them that “The youth led the change in Nigeria….the youth led the change in cote D’viore, and it is now the turn of the youth of Ghana to lead the change”
Awuku shed light on the various factors which have been impeding the growth of the country, and called for a change in the system. He said that “the change the nation seeks this year is a change from corruption, incompetence, massive unemployment among the youth and insensitivity”
He then stressed that the only way to bring about change in Ghana is by doing away with the present government which has shown a high level of incompetence in tackling those impeding factors.
He urged the youth to vote massively for the NPP’s presidential candidate Nana Akufo-Addo and his running mate Dr. Mahammadu Bawumia in the coming elections.
