TESCON denies endorsing NDC policy

The Tertiary Students’ Confederacy of the New Patriotic Party (TESCON) at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has denied endorsing a policy by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

In a statement released on June 21, 2024, TESCON-KNUST described a letter dated February 12, 2024, purportedly endorsing an NDC policy as “a complete fabrication” and “a blatant attempt to mislead the public.”

The group accused the NDC of desperation and a breach of trust, stating that their focus remains on supporting initiatives that positively impact Ghanaians, particularly in education, health, infrastructure, and agriculture.

TESCON-KNUST expressed their commitment to advocating for policies that contribute to national development and improving livelihoods, reaffirming their support for Dr. Bawumia and the NPP’s vision.

Below is the full statement:

21st June, 2024.


Dear All,


It has come to the attention of the TESCON-KNUST leadership that, a fraudulent letter dated 12th February, 2024 purportedly endorsing an ambiguous policy of our opponent (NDC) is being circulated. We want to make it unequivocally clear that this letter is a complete fabrication and a blatant attempt to mislead the public.

The desperate act by NDC to propagate their flagbearer’s ambiguous policy using TESCON- KNUST’s official letterhead presupposes their irrelevance on KNUST campus and lack of confidence of the NDC in their student youth wing to influence the youth of Ghana. This underhanded tactic represents a serious breach of trust and an attack on the integrity of the democratic process.

Our focus remains steadfast on supporting initiatives that positively impact the lives of Ghanaians across various sectors such as education, health, infrastructure, and agriculture, which have been significantly enhanced through the digitalization initiatives championed by His Excellency Dr. Bawumia. The digital transformation under Dr. Bawumia’s leadership has revolutionized governance and service delivery in Ghana, making essential services more accessible and efficient.

Therefore, while we acknowledge the importance of economic discussions, we believe that sustainable development and progress are better achieved through comprehensive digital strategies rather than endorsing isolated proposals like the 24-hour economy, which lack clarity and feasibility.

TESCON-KNUST remains committed to advocating for policies that contribute meaningfully to national development and improve the livelihoods of all Ghanaians. We want to inform everyone that TESCON-KNUST remains steadfast in support of Dr. Bawumia’s and the NPP’s visions, certain that he is the most qualified candidate to carry on H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s legacy.
