Director-General of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), Hon. Agyeman- Prempeh has charged TESCON members to ensure victory for the New Patriotic Party, come 2020.

Speaking as a special guest of honor at the TESCON general meeting on Friday 15th November, 2019 at the University of Ghana, he recounted  how the Danquah-Busia-Dombo political tradition fought  in the  colonial era with movements like the Aborigines' Rights Protection Society, the NLM, and the UGCC and won political power with Dr. Kofi Abrefa Busia as Prime Minister in the Second Republic of Ghana.

According to him, in the use of this power, Dr. Busia made rural development a priority area with a lot of projects launched to provide good drinking water, electricity and health facilities for rural communities.

“Under the Rural Electrification Scheme, a total of fifty-eight towns and villages were connected to the national grid. Unfortunately, the tradition lost political power in 1972 abruptly which saw our political tradition in the wilderness for over 30 years…In 2001, the good people of Ghana gave the NPP another opportunity because they know the party is indeed good at using power,” he stated.

Hon. Agyemang-Prempeh further alluded to some achievements by the erstwhile Kufour government stating his introduction of the National Health Insurance Scheme, National Ambulance Service, and Capitation Grant for school children among other social interventions.

He believed the NPP is the right party for the people of Ghana stressing that "under three years we have seen phenomenal use of this power in bringing development to the ordinary Ghanaian. The future of the Ghanaian child is secured with free SHS. We promised free SHS to reduce the hardship on parents and we have delivered. Restoration of teacher and nursing training allowances to reduce the hardship on teacher trainees and nursing trainees. The establishment of a Zongo Development Fund. The one constituency, one ambulance initiative by the MSDI. The execution of the Planting for Food and Jobs program. The issuance of National ID Cards together with a National Property Digital Address System. They established three Development Authorities (Northern, Middle Belt, and Coastal). The delivery on the One District One Factory program. The construction of a One Village One Dam program. The One District One Warehouse program has taken shape. The implementation of a Nation Builders Corps program to reduce the hardships on the graduate unemployed".

He advised TESCON members to be resolute and loyal to the NPP.
