CYG gives NPP Regional Secretary one week ultimatum to apologize for “unguided” comments

The Concern Youth Groups (CYG), a pro-NPP group in the Northern Region have issued an ultimatum to the Northern Regional Secretary of the party, Alhaji Alhassan Sibdow Yakubu to retract and apologize for comments made against the group. 

The group says the regional scribe will bear the consequences if he fails to render an apology to them.

Alhaji Sibidow in a live radio interview on Radio Tamale on 13th February said the CYG is not a recognized group of the party after the group went public to demand for jobs. 

But group in an open letter intercepted by TamaleOnline News described his comments as unfounded and unguided comments. 

According to the letter, all groups under the CYG are registered youth groups of the NPP.

“Majority of our members are card bearing members of NPP and on some instances polling station executives. To lose sight of this and went on live radio to concoct a story that portray us not to be members of NPP paint a bad picture of your office and the entire regional executive committee,” it clarified. 

It added “It is amazing that as a regional Secretary of our beloved party you failed to contact us just to appreciate our grievances but rather chose to go on live radio to accuse us of not being members of NPP. This attitude of yours gave credence to the believe held that the northern regional executives have no good working relationship with the youth.”

TAMALE, NORTHERN REGION

23RD FEBRUARY, 2021.

THE REGIONAL SECRETARY

NEW PATRIOTIC PARTY

TAMALE, NORTHERN REGION.

Dear Alhaji Sibdow,

OPEN LETTER: CONCERN YOUTH GROUPS OF NPP (CYG-NPP NR) DEMANDS AN UNQUALIFED APPOLOGY FROM THE NPP NORTHRN REGIONAL SECRETARY ALHAJI SIBDOW ALHASSAN YAKUBU

We the above mentioned group, demand an unqualified apology from you for the unfounded and unguided comments you made on the 13th February 2021 on a live radio program at Radio Tamale. You made mentioned that persons who made up CYG-NPP are not members of NPP. A person of your caliber should have known better and not decent low by making such unguided comments. The fact remain that almost all youth groups that made up of CYG-NPP are registered youth groups. Majority of our members are card bearing members of NPP and on some instances polling station executives. To lose sight of this and went on live radio to concoct a story that portray us not to be members of NPP paint a bad picture of your office and the entire regional executive committee. 

It is amazing that as a regional Secretary of our beloved party you failed to contact us just to appreciate our grievances but rather chose to go on live radio to accuse us of not being members of NPP. This attitude of yours gave credence to the believe held that the northern regional executives have no good working relationship with the youth. 

Again, you made a contradictory statement on that very live program that needs to be pointed out to you and other executives who think just like you. You said regional executives are not appointing authorities andtherefore cannot manufacture jobs for the youth but at the tail end of the same program you made mentioned that if members of CYG-NPP need jobs then we should contact you for same. On one vane regional executives cannot provide jobs for us on another vane you can provide us with jobs. These statements can only be described as unthoughtful or dishonest statements or better still greedy attitude on your part, because if you have job opportunities and waited until the youth agitated before you call on them to come to you for same, it tells how greedy you are towards the youth of your party.

We therefore demand on you to render an unqualified apology to us. Today it is youth groups that you accused of not being party members, who knows, tomorrow it could be another branch of our great party in the region. This attitude of yours is alien and bizarre to our great party especially northern region. Once again we demand unqualified apology from you. Failure to apologize within a week from the release of this letter will instigate our next line of action against you.

Thank you.

Yours Faithfully 

Signed

Napadow Clifford Atchulo
