The dream of Sammy Awuku to annex the coveted position of the National Youth Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) received a major boost over the weekend as Francis Asenso-Boakye, Founding President of TESCON openly threw his weight behind his candidature.
Asenso-Boakye, also a former youth organizer, NPP-North America endorsed Awuku popularly known as ‘Boys Abre Coroner’ on his facebook wall in a post titled “Sammy Awuku; A man of words, a man of Action”.
His endorsement was not a departure from earlier ones from prominent NPP personalities such as Mustapha Hamid, Musah Superior among others.
The TESCON founding President in espousing the rare qualities of Awuku stated “A youth organizer’s ability to keep pace with the ever changing social, political and media landscape, have a keen appreciation of the legitimate aspirations and demands of a vibrant, yet disconsolate youth of this country, and eloquently articulate them, will no doubt be critical to a successful tenure in office.
This is where Sammy stands tall; he has proved, without doubt, that not only he is a man of words, he’s also a man of action”.
“It is with enormous pleasure that I humbly endorse the candidature of Sammy Awuku for the position of national youth organizer of the New Patriotic Party. I have known Sammy for some time and been impressed with his acute sense of patriotism and dedication to duty. I am confident that he will infuse zeal, drive and dynamism into the demanding office of a national youth organizer”, he added
According to Asenso-Boakye, “it is patently obvious that an inglorious summer of discontent is upon us and a cloud of despondency and desperation hoovers menacingly above our heads. It falls on a youth organizer, in the manner of Sammy Awuku, skilled in the art of mobilizing, with demonstrable communication skills, tenacity of purpose and single mindedness, to seize the moment and pursue the clarion call of the youth…no more mediocrity, no more bitter Ghana…a new hope[day] beckons. It’s time for a new transformative agenda”!
Sammy Awuku goes to the April 12, contest in Tamale with strong contenders such as Richard Nyamah, AttafuahDanso, Pius Hadidze, MichealAmpong among others.
