The opposition National Democratic Congress Youth Activist in the Brong-Ahafo Region has outlined some thematic areas that might have being the cause of the party’s defeat in the 2016 elections in the following write up.
Below is the full text of the youth activist
The hard truth we all have to accept is that we all contributed to our massive defeat in 2016.
You, I, the Mp, all the appointees, executives, the former president all contributed one way or the other contributed to our 44.4%.
Imagine we had won comrades, we would have all claimed and proclaimed to the Glory of God how dedicated we were to our party for our victory.
The question is how well did we all contribute our quota in 2016?
Most of us were relaxed because the National cake didnot reach our dining table.
We relaxed because we want to punish the “greedy ones” among us.
We relaxed because we thought that was the only way to punish our bigmen.
We all contributed to our massive defeat, because most of us receiving accusations and those pointing at others didnot even vote because of the bitterness in us.
Kuffour once said….it is better to be a messenger in power than a general secretary in opposition, we never understood him though he was advising the Npp but now the reality has caught up with us.
We lost, yes! that is the reality……and in opposition we want to eat up ourselves out of anger and hunger?
There is still hope comrades, all is not lost
The greatest opportunity will soon offer itself for all of us as the deciders of the upcoming elections to choose the right people we think should be instead of others.
That’s why you and I need to get involve in the branch elections, win and become a king maker of our party for the next four years, so that we can decide in our own capacity who to lead the party from the constituency to the national level and even the flagbearership race.
This is an opportunity and let’s all take advantage of it and make a difference instead of the blame game.
With the tsunami defeat which you and I have caused, I believe the grassroot from now the will be the ultimate decider and the powerhouse of the party.
Let’s get involve, work hard, sacrifice a little as we have always been doing for a victorious 2020.
Npp has already thrown in the towel because the evidence is clear on the wall…..
Teachers and students are crying
Nurses are crying
Market women in Kumasi central market are crying, drivers are worse…Everything in the country have turned upside down.
These are the issues we have to take advantage of instead of attacking Rawlings and Mahama just to please our pay masters and be seen a powerful
Unity, Unity and Unity is the only thing we need now and not the blame game.
Let’s rise above our disappointment and work hard to bring our beloved party back in 2020.
The return of NDC in 2020 is possible comrades, it’s just a matter of time.
Let’s work for it because the hunter will continue to be a hero unless the lion learn how to tell it’s own story.
Pls I beg consider my age for the writing mistakes😁.
Efo Worlanyo TSEKPO.
