THE RULING New Patriotic Party (NPP) has been advised to target the youth and women in their political campaign to help them to retain power in 2024.
Rita Asobayire, the Second Vice National Chairperson of the party, who gave the admonishment, said women and youth forms majority of the country’s population.
Speaking exclusive to the DAILY GUIDE on the sidelines of the International Democrats Union (IDU) 40 years anniversary in London, she said her advise is important.
“Politics is about the youth and women since they have the bigger numbers, which is very crucial in determining who would win a presidential and parliamentary elections.
“Women occupy 52 percent of the national population and we all know that the youth carry a greater number of the population as well, so if we have them, it would enhance your chances.
“So I’m saying that as a political party, we should strategically come out with a campaign plan to woo the women and the youth and we shall win the polls”.
According to her, she was in talks with the Conservative Party in the United Kingdom (UK) to support the NPP by offering training to the party’s youth and women.
Rita Asobayire said the proposed training, if it becomes possible, would help the NPPs women and youth wings to prepare adequately, in terms of campaign, ahead of election 2024.
The NPP top official, without mincing words, also stated emphatically that “breaking the eight-year political reign would be possible for the NPP during the 2024 polls”.
According to her, in the midst of global crisis caused by Covid-19 and the Russia-Ukraine war, the Akufo-Addo-led government has performed better to help the NPP to retain power.
Rita Asobayire was, however, quick to caution that winning election 2024, though is possible for the NPP, would not come on a silver platter as the party ought to work harder.
“We should watch against complacency and give our all by campaigning vigorously to win every available vote to help us retain power to lead Ghana into affluence”, she stated.
