National Youth Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammy Awuku says his party is parading young and ambitious minds who were ready to do battle with their counterparts in the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

He explains that these young aspirants represent a new political inspiration.

According to him, the difference between NPP’s new breed of young parliamentary hopefuls and the NDC’s is that the former’s are “babies with sharp minds” as against the latter’s “babies with sharp teeth”.

Mr. Awuku was responding to suggestions by a section of the public that the 22-year-old parliamentary candidate for the Kwabre East constituency in the Ashanti region, Francisca Oteng-Mensah was too young and not cut for the parliamentary duties.

“People are commending the NPP for the younger generation of leaders we are producing. The only difference between the NPP and the NDC is that these are babies with sharp minds as compared to the NDC’s babies with sharp teeth. The younger ones will get better. They deserve our support. There are strategies to be learnt. We will take them through all of that. The world will be watching them and how they raise the flag of the youth. I believe they wouldn’t disappoint. The dynamics have changed,” he said on Kasapa FM’s Anopa Kasapa.

Ms. Oteng-Mensah who is a second year law student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) beat incumbent Member of Parliament (MP), Kofi Frempong by polling 321 votes as against his 202 in the just ended NPP’s Kwabre East constituency parliamentary primaries.
