TESCON Repeals Decision To Suspend All Activities

Spread the love

The Tertiary Students’ Confederacy (TESCON) of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has rescinded its decision to suspend all activities following their disenfranchisement at the just-ended annual delegates’ conference of the party.

It comes after a meeting between some executives of TESCON and the newly-elected youth organiser of the NPP, Salam Mustapha on Tuesday.

Roughly 291 TESCON members were barred from casting their vote at the Accra Sports Stadium following an injunction.

Speaking with Benjamin Offei-Addo on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Wednesday ( 20 July) Abel Nti Fordjour, TESCON UCC steering committee chairperson said they felt rejected after the disenfranchisement.

“I think the youth organiser tried to speak with us, and we have drawn conclusions. We said we would not be having programmes and other things on campuses. But per our conversation with him and other national executives … we have rescinded our decision. We will have programmes but we are still building a healthy consensus,” he said.

The chairman of the NPP’s national elections committee, Peter Mac Manu, announced that TESCON could not vote at the conference because the party had received an injunction on Friday (15 July).




“Unfortunate decision”

Earlier, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, a political strategist and prominent member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), says he is disappointed that members of the Tertiary Students’ Confederacy (TESCON) were not allowed to vote at the party’s national annual delegates’ congress on Saturday (16 July 2022).

He described the development as unfortunate.

Speaking to Asaase 99.5 Accra on the sidelines of the conference on Saturday (16 July 2022), Otchere-Darko said: “I think that it is very unfortunate that the intellectual hub of the party [TESCON] is not allowed to vote.”

“I’m against the injunction on TESCON members,” the vociferous lawmaker said. “I’m very disappointed. My question is, the one who put the injunction on them [TESCON], assuming he wins, is he prepared to work with the TESCON people?”
