Deputy National TESCON Coordinator, Rosemond Obeng popularly known as Peoples Mother, an astute female politician and an active political figure of the ruling New Patriotic Party -NPP on the 15thof July, 2021 delivered a sensational speech at the TESCON-UPSA inauguration and handing over ceremony in Accra.
According to Peoples Mother, the election of Hannah Agana, the first female president of TESCON-UPSA projects an all-inclusive agenda of the NPP as a party, noting that, in the future, there won’t be female leaders, rather they will just be leaders. Miss Rosemond on behalf of the entire NPP youth wing and in her capacity as the only female amongst the National TESCON executives congratulated and wished her the very best in her tenure of office.
She brought to light how rebranding remains an effective tool in breaking the eight year political cycle and changing the mindset/perception of the Ghanaian. She said TESCON is ever ready to deliver that historic victory however the foundation depended greatly on the core leadership of the party, and on that particular platform used the members on the high table as a point of contact to keep things right, noting that, adopting the “bottom top” leadership approach by not imposing parliamentary candidates on electorates will help the NPP party retain its vibrancy.
“When we are going for Parliamentary Primaries, no interference, the people the constituents want are the people we are going to present if we are serious in breaking the eight” she noted.
She further stated there should also be an open and fair contest when it comes to presenting our people for various party portfolios, be it constituency level or national level; even in the case of our upcoming flagbearership elections, there should not be a machinery working for some particular people” she added. That way post election greviances will be avoided and progress can be made.
Adding on the role of the party in breaking the usual eight-year electoral cycle, Miss Rosemond Obeng stated that there should be room for the grassroots interms of opportunities if we are serious about breaking the eight, else that wouldn’t be possible.
“Let’s open up a little, so that the foot soldiers and people on the grassroot will also benefit accordingly to strengthen our seriousness in breaking the eight”, she stated
On the latter of her delivery , she cautioned that the keenness of Ghanaians listening on the NPP come 2024 recides greatly on the achievements in the manifesto.
“We should be serious to have accomplished about 70% of what is in our manifesto by the year 2024 before we can ask Ghanaians for another mandate, if the 70% target fails then trust me nobody is going to listen to us and that will finally land us in opposition”, she cautioned.
