 The TESCON Train

Mr Fuseini Yakubu Abanga was a Representative of Jubilee Hall on the University campus. While in Level 100, he contested for the position of Tescon Organiser and won. Similarly, in 2015, Abanga contested the position of Tescon President, but his candidature suffered a setback. In the process of resolving that setback, he met with the then NPP National Organiser, John Boadu, who took him under his wings – training him to become the mobiliser he is today. Due to his commitment to the party and activism for the NPP on campus, he earned the name NPP Abanga – a name that would follow him to this day.

In the year 2015 to 2016, Mr Fuseini Yakubu Abanga (NPP ABANGA) became National TESCON Campaign Team Member and as Tescon General overseer.

Believe in NPP

As a passionate student of the political history of Ghana, Abanga learnt about the struggle of the UGCC to achieve independence for the Gold Coast. He learnt about the activities of the ‘Big Six’ and the progress Ghana chalked under Dr. Kofi Abrefa Busia. He read about the courage and efforts of personalities in the Danquah-Busia-Dombo tradition during the military regime of the late Jerry John Rawlings for the democratization process and the rule of law in Ghana. Abanga believed that the NPP is the “birther of freedom” and the best platform to achieve development. As someone who believes in democracy, development and prosperity for the broad masses of the Ghanaian people, he identified the NPP as best placed to lift people and communities out of poverty and shape their future.

Man of Mobilisation

At the student level, Mr Fuseini Yakubu Abanga was an effective organizer. The youth leadership under Sammi Awuku would come to rely on Abanga to mobilise students for the party’s fieldwork and for demonstrations.

Abanga marshalled students for the popular, crowd-pulling demonstration dubbed “The Dumsor Vigil” to decry the incessant power cuts under the John Mahama government. He also effectively mobilized for the LET MY VOTE COUNT (LMVC) demonstrations against the bloated register prior to the 2016 elections which eventually brought President Akufo-Addo to power.

Abanga also mobilized students and residents in Greater Accra for the famous “Won Gbo” (we are dying) demonstration to called to bring attention to the high cost of living and the penchant for the John Mahama government to excessively tax the already burdened citizens.

In the year 2019, NPP Abanga was added to the Western North Monitoring and Mobilization Team for the Referendum which gave birth to the regional demarcations. In the same year, Mr Fuseini Yakubu Abanga (NPP ABANGA) contested as a Parliamentary Aspirant for  NPP (Aowin Constituency) and lost by a slim margin.
