George Opare Addo, the National Youth Organiser of the National Democratic Congress, has received congratulations from a group calling itself Friends of Duffuor 2024 on his reelection.

Yaw Brogya Genfi was George Opare Addo’s lone opponent in the election, which was held on Saturday, December 11 in the Examination Hall of the University of Cape Coast.

At the conclusion of voting and ballot counting, Opare Addo, alias Pablo, received 533 votes, compared to Brogya Genfi’s 508 votes.

On December 11, 2022, early on Saturday, results were announced.

In response, the Friends of Duffuor 2024 claimed that Opare Addo won the youth polls despite the establishment’s opposition in a statement seen by Ghanatodayonline.com.

The win for the current National Youth Organiser was seen as a triumph for the truth.

“We are all fully aware of how some individuals who wield power within the party engaged in various surreptitious means to get their preferred candidates elected” the statement added.

“We, Friends of Duffuor do not want to revisit these sordid events masterminded by some of our big men including former President, His Excellency Mr. John Dramani Mahama and his loudmouth surrogate, Sammy Gyamfi against the young man who has given his all for this great party.

Read the statement below:

Yesterday, our dear party successfully held its National Youth and Women’s Conference in the Central Regional capital, Cape Coast.

The events that heralded this election, vis a vis the machinations and the underhand dealings that surrounded the campaign were regrettable to say the least.

We are all fully aware of how some individuals who wield power within the party engaged in various surreptitious means to get their preferred candidates elected.

Mention can be made of the National Youth Organizer position and how the ‘entire system’ of the party ganged up against the incumbent and eventual winner Lawyer Yaw Opare Addo aka ‘Pablo’.

We, Friends of Duffuor do not want to revisit these sordid events masterminded by some of our big men including Former President, His Excellency Mr. John Dramani Mahama and his loudmouth surrogate, Sammy Gyamfi against the young man who has given his all for this great party.

We were particularly disturbed by the action of Former President Mahama whom we believe should have rather stayed back and played a ‘fatherly role’ to all the candidates.

But alas the outcome yesterday has really proven that the NDC as a party is really bigger than any individual.

We, therefore, wish to add our voice to the outpouring of messages of congratulations to the retained National Youth Organizer of our dear party and to pledge our unflinching support to him as he begins another four years towards mobilising our energetic youth to prosecute the 2024 agenda of bringing the NDC back to power.

The victory of Pablo is a victory for truth, commitment and dedication to the NDC.

We Friends of Duffuor 2024 wish Pablo and all the winners the very best in their endeavours
Signed
Akwasi Manu (Coordinator)
