The Ashanti Regional Branch of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has appointed Dennis Kwakwa as the Regional Communications Officer.
Also appointed are other deputies who will be heading the various offices of the party in the region. The appointment comes after the regional party executive committee meeting on Friday, June 17, 2022.
Other appointments made by the regional executives include Deputy Organiser, Christian Atta Sarpong; Deputy Youth Organiser, Yahaya Salifu; Elections and Research Officer, Stephen Owusu; Deputy Women’s Organiser, Victoria Dogbey; Deputy Nasara Coordinator, Hamisu Ibrahim; Financial Secretary, and Abagna Samuel.
Meanwhile, Mr Kwakwa’s appointment has received an ecstatic response from the rank and file of the party in the party’s ‘world bank’.
There has been a growing concern among NPP members about the deep cracks at the communication front of the party, which was aggravated by the heated regional elections. Taking Mr Kwakwa’s stellar performance as a youth leader of the party into consideration, there is high expectation that he will reunite and revamp the communication structure to ensure the new leadership delivers on its mandate.
Kwakwa is the immediate past regional youth organiser of the party. Currently, he is the youngest ever to get such a position. Party members laud him for his fantastic communication prowess, which they say makes this appointment long overdue.
Kwakwa has over 12 years of professional teaching experience. He has worked with the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) as a district manager, before being appointed as the Ashanti Regional NABCO Coordinator in 2018, a position he has held till date.
Aside that, during his tenure as the Ashanti Regional Youth Organiser, his hard work saw an upward surge in the party’s votes in the 2020 general elections. He is also the founder of the Free SHS Graduates Association.
