She also pleaded with all women and the youth of the party to be more patient and support the government in delivering its mandate to the people.
For the position of National Youth Organizer, four (4) young men look set to battle it out at the party’s general elections slated to be held in Koforidua on July 7.

Nana Boakye who goes by the mantra “Nyame nsa wom” which means “God is involved” appreciated the hard work and efforts of his supporters so far. He indicated that he would champion the course of job creation when elected into office as the party’s National Youth Organizer.

He was quick to add that he would be building on the foundation laid by Sammy Awuku.
“What I am going to do is to build on the foundation of Sammy Awuku. Even if I work to the level where I am paired at par with my boss and brother, it means I’ve failed because he was able to carry the youths towards victory 2016 so once we are in power, I cannot afford to fail, to give excuses or lower the standards”, he said.
