Deputy National Youth Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Edem Agbana has said the biggest in the just-ended delegates conference of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) was the exclusion of members of the Tertiary Students Confederacy (TESCON) .
He described this as unfortunate because it comes at a time the world is currently grooming youth leaders to take over governance.
The NPP received injunctions stopping its student wing, TESCON and local proxy voters from casting their ballots in the delegates conference on Saturday July 16.
This affected over 300 students from voting.
TESCON executives expressed their disappointment over the situation.
But speaking on the New Day show on TV3 with Johnnie Hughes on Monday July 18, Edem Agbana said “the decision to exclude TESCON is the greatest sin of the NPP, it was a terrible decision by the NPP and it reflects who they are.”
“You have a party in power failing to properly structure TESCON to the extent of seeking the injunction that prevented them from voting This can never happen in the NDC,” he added.
Responding to Agbana on the same show, a member of the Communications team of the NPP, Kofi Ameyaw assured TESCON that they remain an important unit in the party.
“TESCON members have always been voting but there was an issue that needed to be addressed,” he said.
He added “I share with them, they have the right to be angry. This is not a good thing, it has to be fixed. TESCON members have been recognized in the party, what happened on Saturday is extremely unfortunate and we will fix this going forward.”
