‘Keep Faith With Us’

Samira Bawumia, Second Lady and Madam Frema Osei Opare, Chief of Staff

Chief of Staff, Madam Frema Osei Opare has urged the teeming youth of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) to keep hope alive since more jobs are coming.

According to her, it is too early in the days for anybody to lose hope in the administration when it comes to provision of jobs since it is barely 2years in government.

This was when she addressed members of the Young Professionals Network (YPN) group of the NPP who helped in the 2016 electioneering campaign which saw the party coming to power.

It follows concerns expressed by members and President of YPN, Steven Asiedu at a dinner on Saturday evening.

But the Chief of Staff has given her word that even though not everybody would get employment in government, they are creating the enabling environment for more jobs to flow.

On her part, Second Lady, Samira Bawumia who was the special guest of honour indicated her willingness to help push for the group.

She thus asked leadership and members not to hesitate to call her attention whenever needed.

The National Youth Organiser of the NPP, Sammi Awuku charged various government ministries, agencies and departments to do whatever it takes to create an enabling environment for jobs.

He, however, advised the youth not to be fixative in their search for jobs whiles assuring the party’s teeming youth of his readiness to fight for their cause.

Present at the ceremony were the three NPP National Youth Organiser hopefuls, Nana Boakye aka Nana B, his colleague incumbent Deputy National Youth Organiser who is seeking to replace Sammi Awuku, Dominic Eduah and current Nasara Coordinator of the party, Kamal Deen.

Also present were the Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) of the Ghana Free Zones Board, Michael Okyere Baafi, Drivers and Vehicle Licencing Authority (DVLA), Kwasi Busia and that of the Youth Employment Agency (YEA), Justin Kodua, as well as the Deputy Managing Director for the National Investment Bank (NIB), Alfred Thompson.
