I am happy to be a patron to Zongo Youth Patriots ……. Mustapha Abdul-Hamid
The National Executives of Zongo Youth Patriots (ZYP), an affiliate group of the Nasara wing of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), have intensified their activities across the country to increase the voting pattern of the NPP in December.
They have also received an overwhelming enforcement from Minister for Inner-City and Zongo Development, Dr. Mustapha Abdul Hamid.
According to the former National Youth Organizer of the NPP he was more than willing and happy to be one of the patrons of the ZYP.
Apparently, the endorsement of the group, had followed a courtesy call on the Minister to inform him about their activities, the campaign being waged to improve the electoral fortunes of the party in the country with emphasis on votes from Zongo communities nationwide.

He assured them of his unflinching support and unalloyed commitment to their activities. He was particularly excited that they (as National Executives of ZYP) were the kind of young men and women he would always encourage to join national discourse on matters affecting development, and citizens.
He said they must do that through adequate participation in active national politics in order to join others who were already striving to shape the destiny and direction of the country.
Dr. Mustapha subsequently accepted to be one of the patrons of the ZYP as the group continues to engage the right people, key stakeholders in NPP to support their activities before, during and after the December elections.
As part of their activities, the ZYP has already carried out an outdoor campaigning in Ashanti Region to sensitise Ghanaian electorates on achievements of the administration of President Akufo-Addo.
