National Chairman hopeful for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Hon Stephen Asamoah Boateng has called for a paradigm shift from issuing promises that cannot be fulfilled.
Bemoaning how some politicians take the electorate for ride, and do not fulfill promises they make during campaign era, Hon Stephen Asamoah Boateng noted that, “times have changed and we need to take the electorates serious”.
Speaking on A1 radio,Hon Stephen Asamoah Boateng who has been highly tipped to win the upcoming National Chairmanship contest described the act as “hypocrisy”. “I wonder why some politicians always want to take the electorate for granted.
They spend their time and and even resources to get you power, they’ve done their part. Now you have to do your part too, by fulfilling your promise to them and make life comfortable for them too”.
Promising and not fulfilling is not good at all, it doesn’t make you credible in the eyes of the electorate, it’s hypocrisy, he said emphatically. Since his declaration of intention to join the race for National Chairmanship of the ruling party, many Ghanaians, both party faithful and floating voters have been enthused at his injection of vibrancy into the contest, with most of them tipping him to win.
With the current despondency and apathy growing in the party, many grassroots members think he is the best placed to rally members to vote massively for the party and Break the eight year governance for the two main political parties in Ghana.
Hon Stephen Asamoah Boateng, affectionately called Asabee who is known to be open-minded and go-getter, according to the grassroots members as well as some floating voters is the party’s best bet to lead them to victory in 2024.
With massive experience in political organization and leadership, electing him as chairman of the party at this crucial time would only inure to the benefit of the ruling party.
Asabee further urged politicians to place a premium on creating job opportunities for youth in the country when in power since that will help ease pressure on leadership.
