Akufo-Addo embraced by Blay.jpgThe Youth Wing Club of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) was at the weekend
re-launched in Bolgatanga, in the Upper East Region, with a call on all
party supporters to unite, to enable the party to win the forthcoming
general elections in December.

The Youth Wing Club was first launched by the Vice President, Alhaji Aliu Mahama in the same city, four years ago.

Alhaji
Alhassan Abdul Rahaman, Chairman of the Youth Wing Club, urged party
supporters to eschew their differences for the sake of the party and
work together as one family to retain power and continue with the good
legacy laid down by the NPP Government.

“We must not say this
person belongs to this camp or I would not work with that person
because he supported a candidate, who lost in the primaries and I
supported the winner. This would not help us as a party, that wants to
win elections”, the Chairman emphasized.

He said the flag bearer
of the Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo brought all those who
contested him and lost together for his campaign, and asked them to
emulate that gesture.

He explained that the major aim of the
Youth Wing Club was to break the power, of what he termed as, the “NDC
die hard youth, in the Bolgatanga constituency.

“We must unite the ranks of the NPP Youth in Bolgatanga and win the upcoming elections at one touch”.

Alhaji
Rahaman stressed that the Youth Wing Club was poised to work
assiduously to enable the party to retain power and continue with the
good work it had already started, including the National Health
Insurance Scheme (NHIS), the Capitation Grants, School Feeding
Programme, Metro-Bus System, and the repealing of the Criminal Libel
Law among others.

Mrs. Agnes Chigabatia, Deputy Upper East
Regional Minister, cautioned the youth to use decent language during
their campaigns, devoid of insults and violence.

“We need to guard and protect our young and fledgling democracy, which is the toast of many Africans”, she advised.

Mrs.
Chigabatia said the NPP Government had chalked a lot of successes and
asked the youth to stress those successes during their campaigns and
avoid violence.

Ms Alima Mercy Musah, NPP parliamentary
candidate for the Bolgatanga constituency, commended the Youth Wing
Club for the tremendously role it played, which led to victory for the
party in the 2004 election.

She urged members, not to relent in
their efforts and to embark on vigorous campaigns, to ensure victory
for the party in the upcoming elections.
