Ghana News–The Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Industrial Holding Corporation (GIHOC), Mr Maxwell Kofi Jumah has urged Chief Executive Officers in Government to use the influences they wield to seek for jobs for party people who are still jobless.
According to the former Asokwa legislator, the NPP stands a better chance of oiling its machinery for elections and party work when it is able to provide jobs for its members and sympathizers.
Speaking to the Ghanaian Observer Newspaper in Kumasi during the 2nd anniversary celebrations of Loyal Ladies, a female group in the NPP, Mr Jumah praised the efforts of the ladies.
He attested to the hard work the ladies put up during the 2016 electioneering period, adding many risked their jobs by openly campaigning for the NPP.
‘’Let us as CEOs and government appointees fight to ensure people who stood with us to help us win power also get jobs to do so they could feed their families and also have the motivation to campaign for the party in future election periods’’, the veteran politician posited.
Mr Jumah reminded the NPP that its failure to reward loyal members of its front will affect the party in the near future.
According to him, groups and especially political parties do well in elections and also in government when it is able to reward and support its youthful elements.
The President’s vision, the CEO reiterated is to build both a solid party and an empowered society.
This, he noted could best be achieved if government agents, ministers and heads of institutions strive to empower people especially the youth who are now jobless.
‘’We should all be guided by the President’s vision and work to empower our youth so that while we build a good economy we will also build a vibrant political party’’, Mr Jumah noted passionately.
Madam Perpetual Lomokie, National President of the Loyal Ladies commended the First Lady and other notable personalities for standing by the group since its formation two years ago in Ashanti.
These timely support in the form of medical items such as drugs and hospital equipment, she noted has been useful to the group’s initiatives.
She, however, urged party members who are able to support the group to do so since all the activities of the Ladies is to help the needy and the vulnerable in the society.
Madam Lomokie encouraged the ladies and their captains to upgrade themselves so as to be able to contest for positions in the NPP and in Parliament to make the influence they wield felt for the good of the party and Ghana.
