TREAT PARTY MEMBERS WELL—–FRANCIS ADOMAKO URGES GOV’T APPOINTEES
The Ashanti Regional Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Francis Adomako has charged government appointees to look for job openings for grass-root members of the party.
This, the organizer noted, was the best way to reward party members for remaining loyal to the ruling government and the NPP.
Speaking to the Ghanaian Observer Newspaper, Mr Adomako said party members, especially grass-root supporters have been complaining for lack of jobs.
The organizer conceded that truthfully many party members do not have jobs and their concerns, he added, are legitimate.
‘’I believe as a party we should learn to treat our grassroot supporters well and push for job avenues for them so that they will be motivated to work for the NPP’’, the regional organizer posited.
Mr Adomako said there should be a conscious drive by government appointees to create avenues of employment for party faithful and the unemployed in their communities.
He noted that if this drive is carried through in the country party members in the communities will get jobs to do.
The regional organizer said government programs which are yet to be outlined and others like the upcoming census could be used to give party people who have the education some openings to work.
He noted that just as NABCO and the Youth Employment Modules have offered opportunities for most of the youth, government appointees could work out some skills acquisition programs and entrepreneurial training for the unemployed and party folks.
‘’Just as NABCO and YEA created jobs for people we could help double up efforts to get more party people and others jobs’’, the regional organizer stated.
Mr Adomako has also urged government appointees to learn to speak well to party members when they visit them with their concerns.
He noted that many party members complain of disrespect from appointees who they toiled to get them into positions of government.
This attitude, Mr Adomako noted, will not bode well for party work and cohesion and called for a better approach to helping party members to get jobs to do.
‘’I appeal to government appointees to treat party people well because they will be the same people we will fall on to help our party hold on to power for more years’’, Mr Adomako admonished.
