Sammy Awuku is a classic representation of excellent organisation – Praye

Hiplife musician, Praye, has extolled the virtues of Sammy Awuku, describing the National Youth Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as a classic representation of an excellent organisation.

Recalling how met Awuku who is vying to become the National Organiser of the elephant family, the Angelina hitmaker told a crowd of NPP party executives at separate meetings in Ho, Hohoe and Dambai in the Volta region that he was stunned by the way the party’s Youth Organiser responded to his call when he placed a call on him at dawn to pledge his support to the Nana Addo campaign and the NPP during the 2016 electioneering campaign.

“It is commonplace for politicians to ordinarily relax once they are put in charge. Sammy has proven to be an organiser”, noted the hiplife musician.

He further told the crowd that based on what Awuku has exhibited to him during the past few years, he fully backs his (Awuku) bid to be elected National Organiser of the NPP.

“Let me begin, I am a native of the Volta Region, and I know how the people of the Volta have been deceived. Sammy Awuku has been an exemplary organisational figure in Ghana’s politics. He gave the people here in the Volta Region and elsewhere, a voice in his four years as National Youth Organiser, supporting most youthful enterprises, especially, in the creative arts industry of which I am a member,” Praye intimated, drawing huge applause from the room full of enthusiastic delegates and reporters.

The hiplife star did not mince words when he sought to highlight Awuku’s organistional capabilities.

He stressed that ” Awuku having been the National Youth Organiser of the NPP; having mobilized millions of the youth for the 2016 election victory for the NPP and been the most accessible and approachable Youth Leader, Sammy was the organizer already in waiting and deserves the support of him Praye and their music group”.

He appealed to the delegates to give Awuku an overwhelming support ahead of the June National Executives Elections.

“No matter how staunch of a supporter you are of the NPP, you need a strong leader who can mobilise resources and people to win an election. But I know what Sammy Awuku represents: he represents organisational excellence in an extraordinary way. He’s going to win and bring improvement into the way the NPP organises things”, he noted.

Praye bemoaned the way and many the conduct of some national executives are driving many of the youth out of politics many and further stressed that there is an urgent need to reinvigorate trust in the youth to lead.

“I am confident that Awuku can salvage this and make all of us proud”, he intimated.
