The office of the DCE plays a very crucial role in the political and administrative discharge of duties that augments the developmental vision of the Party.
It is widespread public knowledge that the President has performed outstandingly well on the delivery of his promises which the youth of Bongo irrespective of one’s political affiliation are much impressed and ready to sustain the 2020 camaraderie and high spirited enthusiasm that characterized the campaigns.
However, the youth is looking forward to a DCE who understands the dynamics of grassroots politics so that we can retain power and annex the Parliamentary seat from the NDC come 2024. Humility and affability, charismatic leadership qualities in pulling onboard floating voters alongside attracting our friends from the other political divide, youth empowerment in the District through job creation, educational support through scholarships, lobbying, advocating, and facilitating youth recruitment into the various security services, party unification, open-door leadership and services devoid of factionalism etc, is the utmost anticipation of our relentless vibrant youth of Bongo.
On the filing of nominations for the Bongo District Chief Executive portfolio, I wish to respectfully convey my sincerest goodwill and best wishes to the various aspirants who will be going through vetting tomorrow at the Regional Coordinating Council, seeking to occupy the highest political office of the District. All the aspirants are all competent with great enviable credentials and may the best be shortlisted.
The NPP has always been touted as a party that respects the tenets and principles of democracy and it is my prayer that the various aspirants who may not make it in the vetting should throw their unflinching weight of support behind the emerged nominee by His Excellency the President after the vetting.
I wish to also seize this opportunity to express my profound gratitude to the numerous calls and meetings from party elders, leadership, Electoral area coordinators, and polling station executives tirelessly impressing on me to file for the nomination of the DCE position. I do humbly respect your position but I wish to plead for your permission to contribute to the building and growth of the party until a divine opportune time.
Not that withstanding, I will continue to place your interest and welfare first in the Party knowing the consistently exerted deep passion you have demonstrated for party activism regardless of what you earn in return. It will therefore amount to a dangerous suicide for the party if the DCE in waiting assumes office and turns a blind eye and death ear on the workaholic youth of the party. It is my humble expectation that the youth will be considered as the engine of the party and be given maximum priority and attention ahead of the 2024 elections. The future of the party largely lines in the hands of the youth. Congratulations to all aspirants and may the competent one among you be selected.
