An aspirant for the position of National Youth Organiser for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Henry Nana Boakye, aka Nana ‘B’, is accusing the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) of trying to shatter his political dream by allegedly using pollster and Editor-In-Chief of the Daily Dispatch newspaper, Ben Ephson, as the conduit.
The NDC, according to the Deputy Director for the National Service Scheme (NSS), is afraid of him becoming the National Youth Organiser of the NPP, hence employing all means to kill his dreams.
“The NDC don’t like me as the NPP’s National Youth Organiser because they know that I will torment them and fight them. They know that when I become the National Youth Organiser of the NPP, in 2020, I will further push their electoral fortunes away”, he noted.
Nana ‘B’ made these comments when interacting with Accra-based Okay FM, Thursday, over media reports about his chances of winning the National Youth Organiser position of the elephant family.
At the back page of Thursday, April 12, 2018, edition of the Daily Dispatch, the Editor-In-Chief of the newspaper, Ben Ephson, has cautioned all aspirants contesting for the National Youth Organiser position NPP, including Nana ‘B’, not to waste their resources since the incumbent deputy National Youth Organiser, Dominic Eduah, who is also contesting for the substantive position is in a comfortable lead, according to survey he has conducted.
However, Ephson was pretty much optimistic that should the NPP expand its electoral college for the position of the National Youth Organiser, Nana ‘B’ would triumph over his competitors.
Nana ‘B’ commenting further said he has never believed in the polls conducted by Ben Ephson since it has “lost credibility”, stressing that whoever candidate that followers of the NPP show their support to has always emerged victorious for the National Youth Organiser position.
“All the candidates that our party followers have supported win the National Youth Organiser they are vying for. Mustapha Hamid won when the party followers showed their support to him; John Boadu won when the party followers showed their support to him; Anthony Abayifa Karbo also won when the party followers showed him their support; Sammy Awuku also won with the support of the party followers”, he emphasized.
According to him, he is also enjoying the massive support of followers of the NPP and is optimistic that victory will surely be his when the party goes to the polls to decide on the fate of the aspirants vying for national positions.
“Once God is alive, I, Nana B, will be the next National Youth Organiser of the New Patriotic Party”, Nana B said in an impassioned voice, urging all his followers not to entertain such reports from Ephson.
