National Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammy Awuku, has described Ghana as a “sick country” which critically needs medication from an NPP administration in order to avert a possible death.
According to him, nothing is working for the country, following the bad leadership style of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration, led by President Mahama.
He has consequently charged the electorate, especially the youth, whose further is in danger under the current government, to vote for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the NPP leader.
Sammy Awuku, who is much adored by the party’s youth wing, was addressing a mammoth crowd at the Abbey’s Park in Kumasi during the ‘Baamu Yadda’ demonstration on Wednesday.
The demonstrators caused massive vehicular traffic on the streets of Kumasi during the protest march, which was intended to put pressure on the Electoral Commission (EC) to clean the bloated voter register.
Mr. Sammy Awuku observed that most Ghanaians are hankering for a change in the leadership of the country, but he quickly stated that the change could only come with a credible voter register.
The NDC, he said, stands no chance of winning the upcoming elections if the voter register is credible and the electoral processes are free and fair, urging the people to continually call for a credible electoral roll.
The NPP youth leader was almost in tears over the appalling manner in which the NDC administration is mismanaging the country, which has brought about untold poverty and hardship.
Mr. Awuku said the country is on the brink of collapse due to poor leadership, insisting that the only way to save Ghana from its sick state if for the electorate to vote for the NPP.
He alleged that the EC rigged the 2012 polls which enabled the NDC to retain political power after poorly managing the affairs of the state, adding that any attempt by the EC to rig the impending polls for the NDC would fail.
He stated that the NPP had done its homework properly and that the party would detect and strongly oppose any fiendish ploy by the EC to make the NDC win the elections.
He charged the youth of the country to rise up and campaign for Nana Akufo-Addo and all the NPP parliamentary candidates so that the party would win the November elections convincingly and effect the needed transformation.
