Aspirant for the National Youth Organizer position in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and Director of Programmes at the office of the Vice President Salam Mustapha has thanked the President of Ghana for giving opportunity to the youth in the NPP to showcase what they are made of.
According to him, the appointment of Youthful Ministers and Deputy Ministers-designate is an indication that the President is a firm believer in the excellence of young people.
He believes that these youthful hands appointed as part of the President’s new government will excel to open doors for the youth in the party in the future.
Salam Mustapha however, called on the President once again to consider more youth in his subsequent appointments.

It’s with such profound delight that i doff my heart out for the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for appointing on meritorious basis a number of young people into his government to serve as ministers and deputies. As I’ve always known, you are a firm believer in the excellence of young people and this demonstrates that conviction.
It’s worthy of note that the first list of ministerial nominations and subsequent vetting and approval of ministers had these very young fellows:
- Samuel Abu Jinapor [MP]
- Kojo Oppong Nkrumah [MP]
- Francis Asesnso Boakye [MP]
- Mustapha Yusif [MP]
Since their appointment, these young champs have been phenomenal in their various ministries. Their energy, drive and depth have been admirable and a justification of their appointment.
Yesterday, the president released his list of deputy ministers and again nominated some brilliant young champs. These include:
- Hon. Abena Osei-Asare [MP]
- Hon. John A. Kumah [MP]
- Hon. Dokua Asiama Adjei [MP]
- Mr. Herbert Krapa
- Hon. Mavis Nkansah Boadu MP]
- Hon. Frederick Obeng Adom [MP]
- Hon. Ama Pomaa [MP]
- Ms. Fatima Abubakar
- Hon. Rev. John Ntim Fordjour [MP]
There’s no doubt that these are great additions to the President’s team and they will help in realizing the vision of the government. The President should be highly commended for his trust in these young fellows and reposing confidence in them.
As Oliver Twist will, we the youth of the party are grateful to Mr. President but we graciously ask for more space in the government as there are appointments to be made for agencies of the State. The young generation will be better served when more of our contemporaries are in high positions.
Special appeal to these young champs. There’s much expectation of you to look back at our teeming young following who are in need of help. All of us together must put hands on deck to deal with youth concerns in the party and i know you are all consummate party people who want the best for the party and will go any length to help.
Once again, Mr. President, you are true believer in young people. You have loudly manifested that. God bless you Mr. P.
