Boampong Darlington Bill, a Bono NPP regional organiser hopeful, has repeated the call on the rank and file of the ruling party to stay focused and be united in order to massively win the 2024 general election.
“We will win if only we agree to work together as a team. It will all boil down to togetherness,” he said in an exclusive interview with the Daily Statesman in Sunyani. He said one of his priority deliverables, if he is elected as the next Bono NPP Regional Organiser, would be to immediately set up a reconciliation team, made up of men and women of substance, to handle all internal conflicts and misunderstandings in the region.
When asked to share his vision for the party in the region, Mr. Boampong said he would strike a partnership deal with interested tertiary institutions to run short courses for constituency and polling station executives who do not have any academic certificates “to prepare them for better job opportunities.”
“The Scholarship Secretariat is another key area that we can use to deliberately prepare our TESCON and other young patriots for future leadership roles. ‘Deliberate” means that we shouldn’t wait for the young patriots to apply, but with the help of our database and data science, make an in-depth selection across the region for the facility to strengthen our base (at least 5 per constituency) in each constituency every year.
“This means that we will deliberately push 60 into education every year (There is an implementation plan), which can help refine our party across the region,” he further said.
The NPP regional organiser hopeful also emphasised the need to improve vocational training with the involvement of volunteer groups and some state agencies to develop jobs and sources of income for the grassroots.
“As a result, agencies, ministries and non-profit organizations will be given a clear mandate to support this goal (an implementation plan is also available). The vocational training will be linked to 1D1F to prepare our grassroots for greater career opportunities within the constituencies. If there is no 1D1F in that constituency, training on the key source of livelihood in that constituency might be provided to increase their source of livelihood,” he added.
In his view, training the young patriots to earn a career via social media management would help the digitalization goal while also providing a source of income.
Touching on his chances in the upcoming regional elections, he stated: “So far, so good; all grounds are fertile for me and the entire team. We are winning hands down; very sure of winning. At least, I am likely to get about 82% of the total votes.”
