The National Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Henry Nana Boakye has asked the youth of the party to accept President Akufo-Addo’s MMDCE nominations in good faith.
In a lengthy social media post, Nana B advised the aggrieved youth to desist from any form of protest.
Supporters of the ruling NPP started shutting party offices and demonstrating to express their displeasure over the appointment of some MMDCEs.
But according to Nana B, the youth in the party should stay calm and accept the nominees in good faith.

NANA B TO NPP YOUTH: ACCEPT PRESIDENT’S MMDCE NOMINATIONS IN GOOD FAITH, DESIST FROM ANY FORM OF PROTEST
The National Youth Organizer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Lawyer Henry Nana Boakye ( Nana B ) has admonished the teeming youth of the party to accept, respect and uphold the President’s nominees for the positions of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs).
Pursuant to article 243(1) of the 1992 constitution of the Republic, H. E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, yesterday, 19th September, 2021, nominated, for the prior approval of members of the respective assemblies, qualified Ghanaians to occupy the MMDCE positions in the 260 Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) across the country.
“The National Youth wing congratulates all the MMDCE nominees and subsequently wish to admonish the youth of the NPP to unconditionally accept, respect and uphold the well-thought through choices of the President” Nana B has said.
He added that “admittedly, we may be disappointed that our preferred candidate was not nominated; however, we must be measured in expressing our disappointment and more-so desist from any protests or demonstrations that may compromise peace and security in our locality”.
Nana B called on the unsuccessful MMDCE aspirants to resist the temptations to incite the youth to protest or support any form of protest against their unsuccessful bid, emphasizing that It’s in their interest to discourage anyone from protesting whatsoever against the President’s nominees.
“Our tradition is built on the tenets of discipline, respect for authority, law and order, and violence is alien to our ideological orientation. Therefore, our actions and inactions must promote peace, unity and cohesion for the sustenance of our collective progress” Nana B has asserted.
