Ghana has by-passed the era of slavery and dictatorship and to progress as a country, the deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has cautioned electorates to turn deaf ears to pleas from Nana Akufo Addo to be given the mandate to rule.
Mr. Koku Anyidoho advised the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to roll out concrete policies to entice electorates to vote for him rather than playing with words like he has been in politics for long so deserves to be given the mandate to rule.
According to him, “Ghanaians are looking for a president and not a ruler”.
The flagbearer of the NPP, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo took his campaign to some churches in the Takoradi and Effie constituencies yesterday with a plea to the congregations to give him the opportunity to lead the country.
In an interaction with Christians on the first Sunday of Lent, he stated that “I am pleading with you to try me also, so I can show you what I can do for this country, and I promise I will never let you down”.
But the deputy General Secretary for the NDC, Mr. Koku Anyidoho states governance isn’t about trial and error as Nana Akufo Addo is preaching.
In an interview with Okay FM, Mr. Anyidoho explained that Ghana needs a leader who would act like a president and not a ruler who would rule with iron fist.
He further explained even in a political party where Nana Addo has been made a flagbearer, he was ruling like a dictator and is internally flushing out anyone who doesn’t side with him.
“The ruling concept is what Nana Addo is displaying in the NPP. If he doesn’t like you, he flushes you out”. “Afoko, Kwabena Agyapong, Sammy Crabbe and Nyaho Tamakloe have all suffered because of the way he rules”, Mr. Anyidoho said.
Leaders, according to Mr. Anyidoho, understand democratic processes and would distance themselves from anything bad around them while rulers wouldn’t. He ended by describing the word “rule” as scary when linked to politics.
