A youth group in the Ashanti Region calling itself Patriotic Youth Movement (PYM) has promised to help the President of the Republic Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo and flag bearer of the NPP to get the 3 million votes target come December 7 elections which is barely 4 day ahead.
“We members of Patriotic Youth Movement will do everything possible by embarking on a door to door campaign for President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to continue his good work, Patriotic Youth Movement said this in a statement signed by its President Adwoa Osei Bonsu.
The call by the group comes following the President requested the people of the Ashanti Region to come out in their numbers on December 7 to give him 3 million votes to secure his victory over NDCs John Dramani Mahama.
“At all cost we have to get 3 million votes at home, President Akufo Addo said this earlier in an interview with Angel Fm Kumasi.
The Ashanti Region is the heart of the New Patriotic Party. As a political party, if you dont focus more on your base you would always be found wanting. Our party from time in memorial; Ashanti region has remain our corner stone so there is the need for the people of Asante to support and encourage the party in everything, he added.
However, commenting on the presidents request, the group categorically stated that, “We can’t sit down while the good people of this nation lose the work of providing free education, 1D1F, one constituency one Ambulance, good roads among other”.
According to the group, “it would be a disgrace and unhealthy for personalities like incompetent John Dramani Mahama of the NDC who has nothing to offer the good people of Ghana to become the next President of the Republic Ghana”.
