Sammi Awuku's ambition to become the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP’s) National Organizer seems to have already been endorsed by the party.
Information reaching DAILY GUIDE indicates that many NPP supporters all over Ghana have declared their support for his candidature.
The party supporters see him as the credible person to properly organize the activities of the ruling party to help it retain power in 2020.
Interestingly, some of the supporters have volunteered to campaign for Sammi Awuku, without even his consent.
Some of these party members have used their own resources to print Mr Sammi Awuku’s posters, which they are spreading to support his efforts.
Several of them have been spotted in Kumasi, the party’s stronghold, pasting Sammi Awuku’s posters on trees and electric poles.
Reports indicate that the trend is the same in other parts of the country.
When some of the people were contacted, they told DAILY GUIDE that with Mr Awuku as NPP national organizer, it would be easier for the party to retain power in 2020.
They recounted Sammi’s incredible organisational skills as National Youth Organizer, which aided the NPP to win election 2016.
According to them, election 2020 would be keenly contested as ex-President Mahama would contest for the top position on the ticket of the NDC for the last time.
In this regard, they said a hard working, accommodating and strategic person like Sammi Awuku ought to be the national organizer.
Kwaku Boakye, a staunch NPP man at Ash Town in Kumasi, said Sammi Awuku is very intelligent and so he could easily formulate strategies to help the NPP.
