Siidi Abubakar Musah, outgoing national Youth Organizer of the National Democratic Congress( NDC) , has entreated aspirants of the National Youth Organizer position and Deputies to conduct campaigns in a peaceful manner, devoid of abusive and insulting words during and after the polls.
According to him, for the sake of the battle ahead and the need for unity in the party and in the country, they should control their tempers over provocative attitude from each other for the elections is a family affair.
“I will like to call on my fellow youth who are seeking for the Youth Organizer or the Deputies positions to serve NDC to avoid using harsh words on each other.Don’t try to use abuse words, but rather use convincing skills, tell the delegate what you can do, not insults to your opponent. We are a family and this is a family affair. We cannot go into 2020 with divided party,” he advised.
Hon Siidi gave the advise when THE REPUBLIC caught up with him at the party Headquarters in Accra yesterday.
He advised the Youth organisers aspirants to avoid confrontation with their opponents to ensure the success of the national elections
The outgoing National Youth Organizer said, the youth elections are part of the party reorganisation process leading to the general election in 2020, and that the Youth wing of the party has unavoidable role to ensure the victory of NDC but that could only realized if they conduct themselves devoid of emotion.
With few weeks to the National conference to elect new executives, the NDC youth leader called on the aspirants to ensure that whatever they do helps to advance the peace of the party.
“I will continue to advise my fellow youth , especially those who are vying for the Organisers position to continue to speak to the issues but make sure in your attempt to market yourself you will maintain peace,” he added.
He also entreated the need for supporters of the various candidates to maintain loyalty to the NDC party and not engage in activities that would put the party on spotlights for opponent to use in the 2020.
Siidi said, Ghanaians have realised the deceptive policies of President Nana Akufo Addo and his New Patriotic Party (NPP) government and are yearning for the return of NDC, but that depend largely on how NDC members conduct themselves, stating, “We need unity and the zeal to move together under one umbrella to rescue Ghanians from hardship.”
He added that, the NPP had failed to fulfil its electioneering campaign promises and should therefore be voted out of office in December 2020.
In his view, corruption, nepotism and others things that the NPP accused former President John Mahama and the NDC of doing when they were in opposition are what they are doing worst in just 18 months in office.
This, he urged the NDC youth to conduct peaceful campaign and treat the national executives elections as a contest of ideas to lead the party and not to destroy each other.
“My humble appeal is for us to remained united after these elections so we can remove the NPP at the general elections,” Hon Siidi said.
He however lauded the youth for coming out to take various position other than youth organizers post, stressing that, “this give me confident that, the 2020 election, we are going to win and make Ghanaians happy again with developmental projects.”
