Yesterday was exactly three (3) years since our beloved Brother, Kwabena Boadu passed on into eternity.
Until his sudden and painful demise, Kwabena Boadu was a staunch and loyal member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Youth wing and Press Secretary to H.E. Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia who was then the running mate of Candidate Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
Kwabena was an asset to the NPP and Ghana; a trusted advisor, intelligent, passionate, calm, honest, discreet, loyal, funny, hardworking, committed and loyal.
Today, the Youth of the NPP, in sobriety, celebrate the life of Kwabena Boadu for the sacrifices he made; the lives he impacted; and the good cause he championed.
It is on the basis of the afore going that the National Youth wing deems it prudent and imperative to, in honor of the memory of Kwabena Boadu, institute an annual:
1. Memorial Public Lectures and,
2. Youth Icon Awards
The underlining concept of the Kwabena Boadu Memorial Lectures is simply about using the principles, values and attitude that spring-boarded Kwabena Boadu to the apex of the Political horizon of the NPP at a very tender age to build an army of smart, intelligent and astute young politicians who will assume delicate positions and responsibilities in the NPP and it’s government and other organizations across the globe.
The Kwabena Boadu Youth Icon Awards aims at acknowledging and rewarding young political strategists and activists with promising political careers who have contributed to the progress of the Danqua, Dombo, Busia tradition. It will reward budding talents of the tradition who have shown enormous selflessness, dedication, diligence, loyalty, honesty and sacrifice in the service to the tradition.
The maiden Kwabena Boadu Youth Icon Awards is scheduled to happen on Friday, 6th December, 2019 at the Annual National Youth Conference that will be held in the Multi Purpose Hall of the University of Development Studies (UDS), Tamale campus.
On behalf of the youth of our great party, I wish to, once again, extend our deepest commiserations to the family of Kwabena. It is our fervent prayer that the family will find solace and joy in the impact Kwabena made in the lives of those who were around him and the good things he did for Mother Ghana when he was alive.
Kwabena Boadu is gone but not forgotten and will forever be in our hearts.
May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace.
