“We are now attracting a lot of young people”, she said, adding: “Now the leadership of the party is made up of youthful ladies and gentlemen”.
“We no more have old men and old women at the helm of affairs”, Nana Yaa Jantuah stressed.
“Now we have pushed all the old folks to the Council of Elders to be playing an advisory role.
“Now we have the youth leading the party.
“All the national leaders of the party are all young people now”, she stressed.
