Bawumia Must Be Supported – Youth Organizer

Daily Guide
5 April 2012 | Politics

THE IMMEDIATE past youth organizer of New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the US, Kwabena Asamoah has appealed to all party members to throw their weight behind vice presidential candidate, Dr Mahamadu Bawumia so that the party can maximize votes in the December elections.

'This is not the time for some party members to criticize the appointment of Dr Bawumia because I believe the flag bearer and the National Executive Council know there is something good in him that can help the party in so many ways having critically analysed the overall advantages and disadvantages that Dr Bawumia's ticket can bring,' he said.

Mr. Asamoah made the appeal after presenting a set of drums to be used during campaigns and GH¢100 to the NPP Lower West Akim constituency recently.

He said the party must remain focused to campaign vigorously and sell the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia ticket to the electorate well to secure victory. 

'I personally believe Dr Bawumia has accomplished a lot in life and as a youth he can readily identify with the youth who form the majority of the voting population,' he said adding that Dr Bawumia must regularly visit all tertiary institutions to encourage students and other youth that they also have a bright future and can become like him.

He asked Dr Bawumia to campaign extensively in the North for the party to win more seats in the three northern regions.

'I think Dr Bawumia might have learnt a lot from his first experience as the running mate in 2008 and would be ready to use that experience to the benefit of the party.'


The former youth organizer in Washington DC who comes from Asamankese said he would also do the little he can to help the party in the Lower West Akim to ensure a massive win for Nana Akufo-Addo in the constituency.

This is the second time he is making a presentation to the constituency after donating a flat-screen computer and its accessories as well as office equipment and stationery to the constituency last year.

Mr. Asamoah pledged his continued support for the constituency.

NPP Constituency Chairman, Yaw Awuku Peprah who received the drums on behalf of the party thanked Mr. Asamoah for the donation saying they would be used during outdoor campaigns and keep-fit events.

He asked all polling station executives to encourage voters who are 18 years and above to go and register so that in December they can exercise their franchise.

Present at the presentation ceremony were some party members as well as constituency executive officers.
