The NPP chairman noted that the current NPP administration has provided so much support for the youth within its three years in government. “The government has instituted more youth friendly policies than any other government in the 4th republic.
Therefore there is the need for the youth to rise up and support the NPP in the 2020 elections to ensure that we continue the good work.” He said.
