King David Backs Down On NPP Youth Organiser Bid
As the New Patriotic Party continues its internal process to elect new officers to take over leadership for the next term of four years, I wish to congratulate all those who have participated in the various elections so far. To both winners and losers, I wish to remind us of what binds us together as a family and party. It is about liberating the many Ghanaians who cry daily because of one hardship or the other and praying that our party recaptures power and set Ghana on its right path.
In about 4 weeks from now, the party will be electing its national leaders from a pool of well talented and motivated men and women. It does not matter who wins or loses, which perceived camp or block one belongs to. It is about that single aim in our journey of recapturing power from the NDC.
After touring the country and touching base with youth leaders of our party, consulting with respected founding fathers of our tradition, I have come to the conclusion that my contest is not just about me but about the aspirations of the party and its desire to recapture power. In the supreme interest of recapturing power in 2016, I have decided to defer my decision to contest the position of the National Youth Organizer. In as much as It comes as a surprise to most teaming supporters of our party and most individuals who had expressed interest and confidence in my leadership abilities, I wish to put it on record, my decision is impelled by the absolute desire of seeing the NPP recapture power in the 2016 election to deliver hope to the people of Ghana. May I use this opportunity to say thank you to all those who supported my bid. The NPP shall be back. Let's work together as a team.
