The Ashanti Regional chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako better known as Chairman Wontumi has backed the decision by the Deputy Director of National Service (NSS), Henry Nana Boakye to contest as party’s National Youth Organizer.
Spokesperson of the Regional Chairman, Mr. Yaw Opoku Mensah announced on Nhyira FM on Monday.
“The regional executives of the party including the Regional Chairman Bernard Antwi Boasiako support Nana Boakye to run for position at the national level”, Mr. Yaw Opoku Mensah disclosed.
According to the spokesperson of the Regional Chairman, the leadership of the party in the region are in full support of the aspirant because of his affability and dynamism.
“He is affable and dynamic who can do the work”, Mr. Yaw Opoku Mensah told host of Kumasi-based Nhyira FM’s morning show Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin on Monday.
Meanwhile, the coalition of Youth Organisers of the party in the Northern Region has pledged their allegiance to aspirant affectionately called ‘Nana B’ as the next National Youth Organiser of the party.
At an emergency meeting, the group promised its unflinching support to his candidature indicating that he is best placed as a successor to Sammy Awuku who is seeking to be a National Organiser of the elephant family.
According to them, the party stands a greater chance of benefiting immensely from his wealth of experience as a youth leader in various spheres and having observed how he contributed to propel the electoral victory of the party as a communicator and a field marshal in the run up to the 2016 general elections.
“We need a unifier and someone who is tried and tested. We have found out that among all those who have so far shown their faces, he stands tall and when we mandate him, we are assured the best for the youth front of the party. Many at times the youth front breaks down after congress because some of the elected officers lose touch with the grassroots making it impossible to rekindle the spirit”, Muctar Fataw leader and spokesperson of the group disclosed.
Henry Nana Boakye who is the current Deputy Director in Charge of operations of the National Service Scheme is believed to be the strongest contender for the youth leadership of the party and has already promised to give off his best in revitalizing the youth front and strengthening structures to whip up the spirit of NPP youth to win future elections in the country.
