The former deputy minister for Youth and Sports Joseph has urged the leadership of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to involve members of the Tertiary Institution Network of NDC (TEIN) in the party’s 2024 elections campaign.
According to Joseph Yammin, members of TEIN’s involvement in the NDC’s 2024 campaign will help the party to secure victory in the general elections.
Joseph Yammin speaking at the TEIN program held at the University of Education Winneba, Kumasi campus, said, “when the NDC wants to win power, it looks up to the members of TEIN but when the NDC forgets about TEIN, NDC loses power”.
Joseph Yammin explained that TEIN members are committed and eager to work hard for the power to win power.
“NDC lost 2000 and 2004 general elections because the party forgot to involve TEIN members”, Yammin said.
“In 2008 when I was the parliamentary candidate in Kwadaso constituency, 70% of my polling agents were members of TEIN. They were very dedicated and committed people and I was the first parliamentary candidate at that time to have received the then Electoral Commission blue sheets from all the polling stations in the Kwadaso constituency. Even though we didn’t win the elections but our results were intact”.
Joseph Yammin however appealed to the leadership of the NDC to resource TEIN members to take full charge of the 2024 general elections.
