The National youth organizer of the NPP, Sammy Awuku has stated that the party would sponsor only its members in the upcoming FIFA world cup tournament scheduled to take place in Russia from 14 June to 15 July 2018 in retaliation to what the National Democratic Congress (NDC) party did during their eight-year term in office.
Mr. Awuku again told government appointees especially MMDCEs to provide jobs to party members and provide them with all the support because it was through their efforts the party came into power.
He said government appointees and those in leadership position should not be afraid or feel uneasy to carry out the directive because members of the NDC holding top positions started “the winner takes all” practice.
“It is time for us as party people to take care of our party people. When the NDC took their supporters to South Africa for the world cup in 2010, we didn’t complain, when they took their supporters to Equatorial Guinea, we didn’t complain, when they took them to Brazil, we didn’t complain, as for Russian, it is our time, they shouldn’t complain.
“Our party people have suffered. When you give a job to an NPP person, you are giving the job to a Ghanaian so our appointees should not be afraid to give jobs to our party people because we brought the party to power and without us they would not be any government, and so it is same for us as a party and people to also make sure if it is NADMO, if it is School Feeding, if it is Youth Employment Agency that our party people needs those jobs, lets support them and get those jobs because when they gave it to their supporters they said they are Ghanaians, very good, when we give it to our own people too, they are Ghanaians and should also respect that”, the tough speaking politician declared,’ he advised.
Several personalities including Defence minister and MP for Bimbila constituency, Interior minister, Ambrose Dery, Member of Parliament for Kpandai, Acting General Secretary, John Boadu, Northern regional minister, National Chairman, Freddy Blay, Nasara Coordinator, also spoke at the event which ended surprisingly without any drama.
