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 further charged leadership on the high table of the party to keep things right, since the liveliness of TESCON depends on them, noting that, adopting the “bottom-top” leadership approach and not imposing parliamentary candidates on electorates will help the NPP party retaining 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. There should also be an open contest when it comes to presenting our people for various party portfolios, be it constituency level or national level; there should not be machinery working for some particular people” she added.
Remarking 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 if they 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 grassroots will have everything shared accordingly to strengthen our seriousness in breaking the eight”, she stated.
On the latter of her deliverance, she cautioned that the keenness of Ghanaians listening on them come 2024 recites greatly on the achievement in the manifesto.
“We should be serious to have accomplished about 70% of what is in our manifesto 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.
