According to the youth, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) was formed on the basic principles of probity and accountability which have over the years won a lot of support from Osu community for the NDC party.

They alleged that the primary was characterized by some NDC excutive creating tension at Osu in area of interferinging in chieftaincy matters.
According to them,Nii Laryea Afote Agbo is trying imposed one Ismeal Adumuah who double as former constituecy organizer as Osu Osiahene of the stool without passing proper channel to enstool him so they denounce the self-acclaimed.
?We state categorically that the man,Daniel Nortey Ashong cannot present himself in whatsoever form or shape as Osu Mantse because he is not known and has no lineage of any sort in the Osu Traditional Stool?s ruling houses?Osu youth stressed.
?Indeed,to state matters in simple language, he does not possess an iota of Naabu Blood-the requisite royal quarlification to the stool nor can he pretend to have even the wildest semlance to a trace of royelty? the youth stated.
The youth raised rad flag on another claimant of Nii Nortey Owuo III,also known as Mr.Daniel Nortey Ashong,as paramount chief of Osu.

The youth who raised these issues at a press conference in Osu, the Osu youth secretary Mr.Earl Teddy Nartey said the selection of Hon.Nii Armah Ashitey was not the true choice of the people which is why they booed and threw rice at him in protest when he was announced the winner at the coliation Centre in the full glare of the media as well as Greater Accra Regional Minister, Nii Laryea Afote Agbo.

They said over the years the MP had successfully created disunity, mistrust, rancor and bitterness among constituency party executives as well as other party faithful who have worked tirelessly to make Korle klottey a safe seat for the NDC.

?How can such a man give us victory when the party members are fed up with him and many are wishing his downfall in 2016 due to his attitude towards them?? the youth questioned.

?Our primary concern is that with these divisive tendencies, the party stands to lose the seat in the general elections on 7th December, 2016. The general opinion among party faithful is that they will vote ?skirt and blouse? which means H.E President John Dramani Mahama will win the presidential whilst the parliamentary goes to the opposition.?

The youth told the media that Mr. Nii Armah Ashitey MP attitude in the constituency will make campaigning difficult for the NDC, especially when they cannot point to any meaningful development that he has initiated or spearheaded in the area to justify his continuous stay in parliament.

They added: ?We don?t know what the osu klottet sub metro council uses his share of the Common Fund, NHIA Levy, the HIPC Funds and the GETFUND for since the NDC won power in 2009. We know that other MPs from other constituencies have used their share of these funds to the benefit of their people. The Health Centre which is the premier health facility in the constituency has also not seen any improvement since it was built.
They Asked that, what prevents honourable Hon.Nii Armah Ashitey and the Sub Metro from using funds from these levies to improve upon this facility to save many lives in the constituency??.So that?s why they are calling on Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development to let osu have its own Municipality.
The youth have appeal to H.E.John Mahama,H.E.Paa Kwasi Amissah Arthur and the chief of staff to shaffule the Greater Accra Regional Minister to bring peace unity amomg the people Osu and Ga State as large.
