Aspiring National Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammi Awuku has penned down a heartfelt message, to sign out from his position as the National Youth Organizer of the Party.
This comes in the wake of the NPPâ€™s National Delegates conference, to be held in Koforidua, where the party will elect new executives to stir the affairs of the party.
In his message, Mr Awuku expressed in-depth gratitude to God and all who have been involved directly and indirectly in making his tenure a success.
He described his National Youth Organiser position as being a â€˜learning curveâ€™ which has contributed massively to his personal development.
â€œAll too soon my tenure as National Youth Organiser is grinding to a halt. With a grateful heart, I thank the Almighty God for a successful term of office. This position has been a learning curve and a humbling one for that matter. It further deepened my knowledge on grassroots mobilization,â€ he wrote.
â€œAs I finally step out of the NPP Youth wing Engine room as your Youth leader, it is my fervent prayer that the next Youth leader will achieve more than I did and further build upon our success story,â€ he noted.
Mr Awuku, serving as the NPP National Youth Organizer since 2014, has gained for himself the admiration of many, some of which include members of the opposition.
In a recent publication, an aspiring National Deputy Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Agbesi Nutsu, described Sammi Awuku as a smart politician who deserved some praise for his good works.
Mr Nutsu was recorded to have said, â€As for that gentleman, Sammi Awuku, some of us were in the political terrain before him, but he has overtaken all of us, the man is as astute politician..â€.
Sammi Awuku became the National Youth Organiser of the NPP in 2014 after a party congress in Tamale.
Mr. Awuku has since been appointed the Board Chairman of the Youth Employment Agency (YEA) by the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Sammi Awuku writes;
In April 2014,when the National Youth Organiser Mantle of the New Patriotic Party was handed over to me by my Predecessor Anthony Abayifa Karbo, I did not envision the years passing by so quickly.
Well, all too soon my tenure as National Youth Organiser is grinding to a halt. With a grateful heart I thank the Almighty God for a successful term of office. I also want to thank my Boss John Kwame Boadu for his unfaltering support. Indeed my respected predecessors left a remarkable blueprint for me to follow and for that I am very thankful.
Again I am grateful to all external branches of the Party and all NPP youth wings across the globe.To my Secretariat, Regional and Constituency Youth Organisers and TESCON, I could not have pulled it off without you. I really appreciate your support through the thick and thin of it all.
For me, this position has been a learning curve and a humbling one for that matter. It further deepened my knowledge on grassroots mobilisation. As I travelled the length and breadth of this country to interact with majority of our party faithfuls particularly the youth, it further brought me closer to the youth of the party
I strongly believe that to create an effective youth wing, it was expedient to undertake capacity building courses to enable our regional and constituency youth leaders restore faith in our youth as well as win over the others to garner their support.
Finally, I also want to use this opportunity to thank the youth wing of the party, volunteer groups and all the teeming youth for their immense commitment to the party. With the help of God, You all contributed in securing us a resounding victory in 2016.
As I finally step out of the NPP Youth wing Engine room as your Youth leader, it is my fervent prayer that the next Youth leader will achieve more than I did and further build upon our success story. I wish the NPP youth well as they go to the Polls again to elect my successor
On this note, I wish all aspirants well
God bless You!
God bless NPP!
God bless Ghana!
