The National Youth Organiser of the ruling New Patriotic Party has responded to the passionate appeal from Youth Secretary of their United Kingdom branch to place nominations forms for their upcoming elections online.
Mr. Thomas Oheneba Boakye in a ModernGhana News report appealed to his party’s National Executives to make nomination forms for their internal elections online.
Mr. Boakye said extending the sales of forms online would prevent the numerous accusations of deliberate hoarding of the forms in order to prevent some aspirants from accessing it.
He said, the accusations and counter-accusations in the past has deepened the cracks in the party, “and we don’t need this at a time we are talking of breaking the 8.”
The UK based Ghanaian added that “In these times of breaking the eight, we must all contribute our quota in uniting the party because I don’t see how we can really break the eight with a disunited party.”
The suggestion seemed to have been welcomed by many party members.
This, the National Youth Organizer Nana Boakye who is part of the UK branch’s youth social media platform joined the discussion with his colleagues and said, “it shall be considered…every proposal will be considered.”
Even though the response does not mean that the suggestion has been accepted, the youth members applauded their National Organizer.
Mr. Boakye tells ModernGhana News he is hopeful the suggestion would not only be considered and dropped but “considered and used.”
“I was very happy when I saw Nana B’s response to the appeal and it gives me hope they will not just consider it but use it. It is all for the betterment of our great party,” he noted.
