The youth in Kasoa have launched their own self-financed political campaign to get Zylofon Media boss, Nana Appiah Mensah, to contest as the Member of Parliament for Awutu Senya East Constituency in the Central Region.
Some photos making rounds on various social media platforms have shown flags and stickers calling for Nana Appiah Mensah to be made the representative of the area in parliament house.
Further report states that a youth chief in Kasoa, namely Hassan, has already branded his SUV out in his self-made banner of Nana Appiah Mensah with campaign message for the owner of Zylofon Media to be the MP of the area.
According to Zylofonmediaonline.com report, a delegation is being put together by the youth movement to convince the Zylofon boss in order to contest the next parliamentary elections.
Even though Nana Appiah Mensah has not declared his intention to contest for parliamentary seat, his social intervention programmes in Kasoa appears to have forced the youth to turn to him for help.
NAM Mission initiative to create jobs for the youth of Kasoa has made the business mogul the main target of the youth as their representative in parliament.
Apart from providing an official vehicle for the Chief of Kasoa, the Zylofon boss is constructing the chief’s palace for the area which will serve as the public meeting place for all the divisional chiefs of the area.
Nana Appiah Mensah is also building factories in various industries in the Kasoa to create jobs as well as training some of them to be able to take up jobs in other sectors of the Ghanaian economy.
The Zylofon boss is also said to have promised one million jobs to the youth of the country which has sparked a massive interest in his activities among the youth in the country.
However, the youth movement are not keen on NAM1 joining any of the major political parties in the country with many of them insisting that both the ruling NPP and NDC have been tainted by failed promises of the past.
The youth group have reportedly cautioned NAM1 to stay clear of the two political parties so as to maintain his credibility that has endeared him among the youth of Kasoa.
Meanwhile, some supporters of the two biggest political parties, NPP and NDC have already declared that if Nana Appiah Mensah declares his intention to stand, they will ditch their parties to support him win the seat currently occupied by Hawa Koomson.
