Youth For Mahama (YFM) gathers momentum in New York, USA.

The United States of America branch of Youth for Mahama (YFM) has been launched at a special peace march session in New York with a call on Ghanaians living in the United States to rally behind President Mahama ahead of the December general elections.

The group says that successes chalked by the National Democratic Congress government under late President Mills and his vision for a better Ghana can only be complete when Ghanaians renew the mandate for the NDC under President  John Dramani Mahama.

Following events here at home, spokesperson for the group, Alhaji Abass Adam Adamu, said, they were happy at the support and show of love Ghanaians demonstrated during the demise of President John Evans Atta Mills on July 24 this year. He said that magnitude of support emphasized the confidence of the Ghanaian people in the policies and programmes of the NDC government, for which they are confident, will ensure a one touch victory for President Mahama and the NDC.

He congratulated Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur on his assumption to the office of Vice President of the Republic of Ghana and subsequent nomination as running mate to President Mahama, and urged him to do all he can to provide the needed support for victory for the NDC come December 2012. 

He urged the rank and file of the party to resolve all outstanding differences and work as a united front in order to ensure that the party comes out of the December general elections more united than ever.

The spokesperson of the group also urged well meaning Ghanaians not to give in to the vile propaganda of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) saying that Ghanaians have tested and tried their disappointments for two terms and have realized that they have nothing new to offer them.

Alhaji said that President Mahama has been through the mill and is the only candidate amongst the many seeking to occupy the high office of President.
