An aspiring National Youth Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Prince Kamal Gumah, has appealed to the delegates to protect their interest by voting him into office.
Mr Gumah’s appeal follows his safe sailing through laid down procedures ahead of the delegates’ elections, starting from picking, filing of forms as well as vetting and balloting for position on the ballot paper.
“It does not matter what number you are on the ballot. The most important thing is that I will win this National Youth Organiser election to support the party to ‘break the eight’ governance cycle and create opportunity for the youth,” he said.
Addressing the media in Accra on Tuesday, he noted that he is the only candidate that has the track record of helping the people, both locally and internationally. He urged the party delegates to vote for a candidate that has the “track record of sacrifice and not for the goodies”.
Mr Gumah further indicated that during the 2020 elections, he made a donation of 76 motorbikes to some constituencies to support and facilitate the activities of the party in those areas.
He added that, as part of the humanitarian services, his group also constructed 40 boreholes for 20 communities in most regions across the country to support government into the 2020 election.
In 2020 election, he said, he was part of team that rolled out trainer-trainees’ programme, and supported the leadership of the party to feed the polling agents on the voting day at the polling stations across the country.
“I am a servant leader, and when voted into the position of the National Youth Organiser, I will create stronger ties between the party youth at the grassroots and the national office of the party,” he assured
He said he has the highest chance of winning the upcoming election because he had served the party in various capacities, both local and abroad, adding that “it presents me the opportunity to emerge victorious”.
“The country is in this mess because the delegates prefer to vote for people who pose as loving the people, while in fact they only think about themselves. That is why, it is important to vote for Prince Kamal Gumah, who is No.3 on the ballot party,” he appealed.
Mr Gumah stated that, granted that governing NPP had gained massive votes as compared to the 2016, he would not have been seeking for the position.
He bemoaned the breakdown in communication between the grassroots and party, and assured to establish a communication extension line to address the issues of youth in the party.
Mr Gumah pledged to support the call for the globalisation of the Tertiary Students Confederacy (TESCON) of the NPP to gain international exposure.
“My outfit is working assiduously so that TESCON executives are offered opportunities to attend conferences abroad in order to encourage student participation in politics in the country, particularly among the NPP members,” he said.
