The Western Regional Youth Wing of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has applauded the party’s performance in the 2020 elections, most particularly the parliamentary election, wining eight seats from the previous four it held in the region.
Describing the feat as satisfactory, the Youth Wing said it could not have been achieved without the significant role of the youth.
In a statement released by the Youth Wing after a retreat held at Wassa Akropong and copied to the The Chronicle, the Wing resolved to work extra hard with the view to increasing the party’s parliamentary seats in the forthcoming election from eight to fourteen.
The retreat was hosted by the Member of Parliament (MP) for Amenfi East, Nicholas Amankwa, and saw the likes of the National Youth Organiser, George Opare Addo, Deputy National Youth Organiser Delah Seddoh, the Regional Chairman, Nana Toku, and the Regional Women’s Organiser, Gladys Agyin, amongst many others gracing the retreat.
The Regional Youth Organiser, George Dadzie, who signed the release, commended the eight Members of Parliament on the ticket of the party for a good job done.
He vowed to go the extra mile to ensure that all parliamentary seats, hitherto occupied by the NDC but had found its way into the hands of the ruling party, were snatched back in the 2024 elections.
Though he did not mention the said seats the party intended to snatch, the Regional Youth Organiser was quick to say: “We shall ensure that the parliamentary seats of the NPP are reduced to three out of the seventeen seats in the region.”
This, he said, could be achieved if the Youth Wing was seen as the engine to the success of the party in the forthcoming elections, most particularly in the winning of parliamentary seats.
Dadzie called for attention to be paid to the Youth Wing by way of resources for the grassroots to enable them deliver a resounding victory in the 2024 elections.
On the forthcoming elections of the branch executives, the release emphasised the need for competent people to be elected to man the party in the region.
