Ahamazie seeks NDC National Youth Organiser post
An aspiring National Youth Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr William Kwasi Ahamazie, alias Okpolueemi, says he has developed a strategy to attract more youth to the NDC and secure victory for the party in the 2016 elections.
He said the strategy, with focus on job creation for the youth, would keep the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in opposition for the next 20 years.
Mr Ahamazie, who was outlining his vision for the NDC in an interview with the Daily Graphic, therefore, asked the party members to give him the mandate at the NDC National Delegates Congress in October, 2014 to occupy the National Youth Organiser position.
Mr Ahamazie said unemployment was one of the major challenges facing the youth in the country.
He said when given the mandate, he would work with his team to identify and form youth groups in all the 275 constituencies in the country.
Thereafter, Mr Ahamazie said, he would impress on the government to support the youth groups to go into agriculture.
He mentioned fruits and poultry production and fish farming as some of the areas that the project would focus on.
Besides, Mr Ahamazie said, he and his team would stress the need for the government to invest more in state manufacturing companies to create more jobs for the youth.
Mr Ahamazie said when given the mandate as the National Youth Organiser, he would embark on a nationwide tour to mobilise more youth for the party.
He said he would create a platform for the youth to have a strong voice in the affairs of the NDC.
Mr Ahamazie, who lost the 2010 NDC National Youth Organiser position to Mr Ludwig Hlodze, said the numerous calls that he had received from NDC youth across the country to vie for the position was his source of encouragement.
Therefore, he said, he was ready to commit all his time and ideas for the forward movement of the party.
Mr Ahamazie was a former branch organiser of the NDC at Tadzewu in the Ketu North Constituency of the Volta Region.
The NDC National Delegates Congress for the election of national executive members of the party is tentatively slated for October, 2014.
Elected ward executive members will constitute the delegates for the election of executive members at the various constituencies.
The constituency executive members will also constitute delegates for the election of regional and national executive members of the party.
