A Deputy Communications Director of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), George Krobea Asante, has challenged members of the party’s Tertiary Students Confederacy (TESCON) of the University of Ghana, Legon – City Campus branch to concentrate on selling the ideals of the party to make it formidable to win election 2024.
Addressing students during a symposium in Accra, he said the party was heavily counting on TESCON members to retain political power in 2024, and break the eight-year rule in the country.
It was organized by UG TESCON executives to help build the capacities of members in the party’s quest to ‘break the 8’.
He also reminded the students of their sacred fundamental constitutional duty to promote and defend good name of the party at all times.
Mr Krobea noted that it was only when the masses understood government poverty intervention programmes and ideologies and philosophies of the NPP that they could make informed decisions and vote to retain the NPP government.
He commended the TESCON branch for their commitment and loyalty to the NPP, and expressed the hope that they would persuade more students to join and support government policies and programmes to better the lives of the citizenry.
The NPP Deputy Communications Director also urged members of the party’s TESCON members to remain determined and resolute in working in the interest of the party.
“As members of TESCON, take active interest in promoting and defending the enviable achievements of the NPP’s government led by Nana Addo and Dr Bawumia on all platforms, particularly on social media,” he advised.
He challenged them to be willing to take a bold decision to anchor the ‘breaking the 8’ agenda since the “NPP’s continuous stay in government offers them better hope for a brighter future”.
He further encouraged them to, at all times, stick to the founding principles of TESCON, which has become the intellectual organ and the number one breeding ground for future leaders of the party and the nation at large.
He reiterated the need for the members to sell the good works of the NPP government, which had demonstrated a strong commitment to tackling the very challenges confronting the nation’s youth through various interventions and policy frameworks.
“As youth of the NPP, we may have a tougher responsibility, but ‘breaking the eight’ is a must do for us. We must convince Ghanaians that changing a productive regime merely because it has lasted for eight years is not healthy for a country that seeks progress,” he stated.
Mr Krobea stressed the need to prove beyond any reasonable doubt to Ghanaians why the party must remain in office even after two terms, saying “beyond singing the chorus of ‘breaking the eight’, we must critically engage our minds forthwith”.
“Indeed, it was so refreshing and a great privilege to be part of such important capacity building conference, which offers the opportunity to share personal experiences as a product of TESCON, and I sincerely thank and commend all the TESCON Executives and the organisers of the programme,” he added.
Present during the event were Nii Ayikoi Otoo, former Minister of Justice and Attorney General, as well as former Ghana’s High Commissioner to Canada; Mr Eric Asonade, National TESCON Coordinator, among a host of other patriots.
