Bello Bouba told supporters of his party that the main thrust of the political party for the year 2016 is to complete the reorganization of its basic organs in conformity with its statutes.
He urged the youth and women’s wing of the 25years old party whom he described as “engine of the party” to get involved in the reorganization process and ensure it is completed before the party’s congress in 2017.
And his message was understood by the youths of the party who said they are determined to come to the congress next year with democratically elected militants.
“We are very ready for the reorganistion process. We are calling on all the youths of the party not just to participate in the reorganization but to also occupy important positions within the ranks of the party,” NUDP national youth president, Ndansi Elvis said.
The party’s youth wing president who will come to the end of his first five year occupancy in 2017 said he will seek another mandate if his peers give him another chance.
“My stewardship will be evaluated by all the youths of my party and if they give me another chance that will be welcomed because I still fall within the age bracket that will permit me to stand,” Ndansi Elvis stated.
