Mr Castro Kwame Nkrumah, the aspiring youth organizer for New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Kwadaso Constituency, says grassroots mobilisation is key to breaking the eight-year rule in government.
According to him, breaking the eight would depend on the ability to mobilise the youth into their fold through youth-friendly policies that could guarantee them to hope in the party.
To achieve this, he said there was the need for the party from the national, regional and constituency levels to ensure that they elected competent and selfless executives to enable the party to execute the agenda.
Mr Nkrumah was speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) after a successful vetting to contest the position in Kwadaso.
He appealed to all the candidates to conduct their campaigns in a civil manner devoid of personal attacks and abuse of individuals’ reputations so as not to jeopardise the fortunes of the party towards the 2024 general elections.
Mr Nkrumah, who is contesting for the constituency youth organizer unopposed, advised all aspirants to be mindful of their utterances and called for unity before, during, and after the elections.
“If we attack ourselves here in Kwadaso, we cannot come together to win the 2024 elections, so let’s stay united before, during, and after the internal elections to help retain power in 2024,” he said.
Mr Nkrumah called for the support of the eligible constituency voters to advance the fortunes of the party and expressed appreciation to the party executives in the constituency.
The NPP is preparing for its internal party elections to elect new polling station executives, constituency executives, regional executives, and national executives ahead of the 2024 general elections.
In the Kwadaso constituency, a total of 13 people are vying for the various positions, which include chairman, first vice-chairman, secretary, organizer, youth organizer, treasurer, women’s organizer, NASARA coordinator, among others.
The Kwadaso Constituency NPP internal elections are scheduled for Sunday, May 1.
