Fighting the unfavorable conditions of the IMF and the World Bank is our first point of call as a youth wing. We must take into cognizance the IMF conditions which are responsible for our present state as a country; poorly developed human and capital resources. This is our main oppressor.
The youth wing of the party must serve as the base of synergy for all oppressed groups and individuals in the country.
The youth must associate and share in the pain of the suffering farmers, [ads1]the disadvantaged poor students, the market women who sit under the hot sun without sales as a result of poor economic policies, persons who are unfairly tried by the judiciary and must fight judicial corruption; we must side with the sick who are not attended to at hospitals due to cashlessness, the aged who are neglected by both family and government to suffer and die, and all the poor persons in society.
“The history of human achievement illustrates that when an awakened intelligentsia emerges from a subject people it becomes the vanguard of the struggle against alien rule”…(Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah
We must be a vanguard of the struggle for economic liberation. We must fight against cluelessness and myopic leadership. We must fight against the misplaced priorities of this administration; buying bulletproof cars at huge cost when Free SHS is still underfunded.
To lead the youth is to acknowledge the various societal challenges as a struggle and to wage a strong war against the oppressor.
The oppressor is the leader who concerns not about what his people eat, where his people sleep, and the general standard of living of the population. Such a poor leader must be resisted and uprooted immediately!
I call for People’s Power
It has been done before
It can be done
Keep hope alive
