A coalition of NPP youth groups in the Daboya-Mankarigu constituency of the Savannah Region has today Tuesday 23 March, 2021, issued a rejoinder to a press release conveyed by the party’s constituency youth organizer Mr. Ibrahim Al-Amin in his attempt to speak for the youth group against the reappointment of Hon. Adam Eliasu affectionately known Red Bawa as D.C.E for North Gonja District.
They discribed his decision as deliberately selfish and among other things in the rejoinder cautioned him to desist from using them for his personal interest at their expense. They denied ever giving him their blessings with regards to the issue and therein, urge the public to treat the said press release conveyed by him with the highest contempt it deserves.
The youth expressed their disappointment in him and accused him of been paid to run a hatred agenda against the D.C.E whom they believe has so far handled the youth with distinction and class in the last four years of his reign.
It would be recalled that few days ago, the youth organizer of the party for Daboya-Mankarigu constituency conveyed a press conference petitioning leadership of the party to truncate every effort that seeks to reappoint the current D.C.E for the same portfolio citing youth polarisation with serious visible cracks among constituents as the bases on which they are against his reappointment by the president of the republic. He also accused the D.C.E of offering job opportunities to members of their political nemesis in what he described as a ploy to woo them to the NPP.
Below is the rejoinder by the coalition of NPP youth groups in Daboya-Mankarigu constituency dated March 23, 2021.
RE: NPP YOUTH GROUPS IN DABOYA/MANKARIGU CONSTITUENCY ADVOCATES FOR CHANGE IN DCE PORTFOLIO.
COALITION OF NPP YOUTH GROUPS IN DABOYA/MANKARIGU CONSTITUENCY – 23RD MARCH, 2021.
The coalition of NPP youth groups in the Daboya/Mankarigu Constituency have with disgust, shame and anguish taken note of a deliberately selfish press conference conveyed by Mr. Ibrahim Al-Amin in an attempt to speak for the youth against the reappointment of Hon Adam Eliasu Red Bawa as DCE for North Gonja.
This is not only a bad practice on the part of a party office holder, it’s also against the duty of all members not to act in ways that brings the party to public ridicule and disrepute. To get it straight, we the youth of the party did not in any way had a meeting or consultation with the youth organizer in any form or shape to speak against the reappointment of Hon Adam Eliasu Red Bawa.
We are disappointed and appalled by the selfish parochial interest the youth organizer is using his office for, he has been paid to run a hatred agenda against the DCE who has so far handled the youth with distinction and class in the last four years. That’s why we have decided to petition him and since forwarded it to the relevant structures of the party for action.
We are by this rejoinder sending a strict caution to Mr. Ibrahim Al-Amin to desist from using our name for personal benefit, he did not have our blessing. We will never be part of a hatred agenda against any party member not just the DCE. We chose to be silent on the many scandalous and profligate habits you exhibited for the seek of unity and love of the youth front, the next time will compel us to tell the whole world what you’re made of.
Finally, we are happy about the role we have played as youth to the victory of the party in the December, 2020 polls. It’s undoubtedly down to the performance of Hon Adam Eliasu as DCE, his performance was the gospel we sang to the people and that of President Akuffo Addo. We are ready to still work with Hon Red Bawa and all other appointees and not to the whims and caprices of the youth organizer. The youth have enjoyed a lot of job opportunities, scholarships, cordial relationship and personal support activities from Hon Red Bawa.
