He was appointed as the President in his first term.to also head the board of directors at the National Youth Employment Agency. A position that has helped him have firm.grips on the youth in the party, as he has helped.many latch on.to a decent oaying job in various government sectors.
He was before taking this position, the National Youth Organizer. A job he creditably performed.in, making him become.the organizer with ease.
"It looks like he will be hanging his boots but its actually to position him to.serve in a higher position" an avid supporter who broke the details of this announcement to us of.the NPP argued.
The rumours are increasing that, the only reason he is not.contesting this position.is because, Sammi Awuku has received support from some.senior stalwarts in the party who want him to take.over the position of the General Secretary of.the NPP.
They say that, his personality best positions him to do a more honourable job and scale up.impact and youth invilvement bh reaching out more to the young folks in the party and.outside.
It may be recalled that, Sammi Awuku was.the National Youth Organizer and his direct leadership and strategy of actively involving the youth in the 2016 elections largely accounted for.the over 1million votes difference in the presidential results and the 63 seats difference against the NDC's parliamentary seats.
He had earlier hinted of.a committee to investigate the NPP's not so impressive performance and hence, this finalised decision comes in as an indication of a realisation that, the youth could have played a higher role in its resounding victory, hence the party:s quick response to avert same challenge in 2024, which they are hopeful of winning to "break the eight", a campaign already started on social media.
Also, posters of Hion Kennedy Agyapong contesting for the position.of Chairmanship of the NPP has been seen online and one can imagine what the next phase of the NPP party will be getting into the next elections with, which are four long years away though.
According to political analysts interviewed, these implicit announcements are meant to throw into the public space, a basis for political deliberation and actions in.pursuit of this intended goals.
"So that, since he is not contending for the Organizer position, it opens him up to other positions, be it as General Secretary in the party as speculated or outside by hoping for a ministerinlal nomination from the president when a major reshuffle I'd done after the second year hopefully," the political analyst, says.
One must remember that, the president is towing a particular line also in this last term of his, that is, rewarding young oerons who are close to him and has contributed in some.ways to ensure he had an opportunity to serve Ghana. This perspective, can surely help get Sammi Awuku nominated later on in this last term.
However it turns out, we can only wait to.see, but Sammi Awuku as General Secretary and Hon. Kenenesy Agyapong as Chairman may well mean a whole new phase of pure underground work amongst the grassroots and the youth.
One interesting partnership that may well pull a surprise on the opposition's chances in 2024.
How will you describe their turn.as leaders of NPP? Potentially Good or Bad?
