The Youth Wing of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Upper East Region has launched an agenda 50-50 which is targeted at getting 50 per cent of votes for their flag bearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, in the 2016 presidential election.

According to Ibrahim Bashiru, the spokesperson for the youth, they arrived at the decision to set this target for themselves and the NPP based on the fact that the NDC government has disappointed the youth of the region.
He said in the run-up to the 2012 general election, President Mahama asked the region to vote for him because he comes from the region and was better placed to address their plight.
He said regrettably, the government of the NDC had not been able to successfully implement any social intervention programme to alleviate their suffering since they assumed the reins of government.
The NPP youth says President Mahama had lost touch with the concerns and aspirations of the people and had turned out to be the worst democratically elected leader Ghana had ever had.
Bashiru said the youth have trust in Nana Akufo-Addo and believe he will restore hope because he believes in Ghana.
