Ending Neglect of NDC Youth Will Be My Priority–Bright Nudokpo-Honu

Bright Nudokpo-Honu, a Deputy National Youth Organizer Aspirant of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has promised to work toward ending the neglect of the party youth if elected.
According to him, the strength of the party is at the grassroots and youth wing but they are often neglected when the party wins elections.

He said: “No society can develop without the contributing of the youth and so is our party NDC. We are always neglected and forgotten when we are in power. So i am seeking the mandate of our youth to correct that mistake. It is not about giving us money but the opportunities is what I stand for.”

Bright made the promise on Thursday in Accra after he was vetted for the youth national conference scheduled for October 20, this year.

He said, when elected he would work to bridge the gap between the young and the top leadership,  adding that, ” this will ensure the youth wing of the party enjoy the full benefits of their membership.”

The Deputy National Youth Organizer  aspirant noted that,  the youth has been left out of decision making in the party and that he is in to correct such lapses to make the youth contribution vital.

“When you look at the NDC Constituency there are clear roles of the youth members, but thy don’t enjoy when we have the power. Despite we bing the future leaders and strength of the party at the grassroots, it is sad the youth aren’t being empowered,” he lamented.

He expressed the concern that the trend, is making the party unattractive to the young generation for which reason he needed the mandate of the youth to end  that trend in the party.

Bright who described himself as “the grassroots man” said, the party youth front needs his style of leadership which sought to empower the youth and prepare them to own and take up challenging roles in the party.

In addition to his vision, he said, he would ensure that the party has a data base of the youth to monitor their progress in life and support them with in their field of endeavors, stating, “this will make the NDC strong at the grassroots level.”

Bright is in the race with Eleven others including former SRC President of the University of Ghana, Edem Agbana and Ruth Seddoh, the only female Deputy Youth Aspirant who contested in 2014 but lost.
He is however confident of winning the race considering his roles as a party youth in Akatsi South and TEIN front.

He, therefore, called on all NDC youth to buy into his vision and rally behind him for the Deputy Youth Organizer Position and that they should look at #5 on the ballot and vote for him to serve the youth.

Evicting Judges for Cathedral undermines Judicial Independent’s-Agalga Hon James Agalga, Member of Parliament (MP) for Builsa North has condemned the decision of the government to evict some Judges from the residence at the Ridge residential enclave to pave way for construction of a national cathedral. According to him, though as a Christian he is not against building of a national Chapel, he believed the decision to evict some Judges to pave way for the Cathedral was not only a misplaced priority, but a threat to the independency of the Judiciary as it could mean that, the Executive arm of government could manipulate the judiciary including their sleeping places. Speaking some Journalists in an interview in Accra over the week, Mr Agalga who is a Former Deputy Minister for the Interior lauded the initiative to construct a National Cathedral project but disagreed with the approach of government to realising the good project. In his considered opinion, the government should find a more spacious land space to site the cathedral rather than settling on the Ridge space which is currently the home of some superior court judges and other state institutions. He added that, the matter remained sensitive because, the condition of services of Judges are been undermine and posed serious threat to their independency, stressing that, Ghana is not a Theocratic state but a secular country where there is freedom of worship and association. Mr Agalga questioned whether the government would be able or willing to do same for other Faiths like the Muslims and the traditional believers. He stated that, the controversy could have been avoided if government had given other prime areas in the country for the National Cathedral rather than it current location. The National Cathedral of Ghana is a planned interdenominational Christian cathedral scheduled to be built in Accra, the nation’s capital, as part of Ghana’s 60th-anniversary celebrations. The design of the Cathedral was unveiled by the President Nana Akufo-Addo in March 2018. The Cathedral would have an auditorium capable of seating 5,000 as well as the requisite chapels and a baptistery. The site will also house a music school, an art gallery and a museum dedicated to the Bible. The design of the Cathedral reflects the art and culture of Ghanaian ethnic groups; the high ceilings and a staggered roof is reminiscent of Akanian architecture and the facade would be concaved, decorated with timber in imitation of Ashanti royal stools. The architect for the project is David Adjaye, a British-Ghanaian.
