CPP blames NDC, NPP for current state of lawlessness
The Convention Peoples’ Party has blamed the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) for the current state of lawlessness coupled with ethnic clashes bedeviling the nation.
“The current state of affairs of our nation characterized by social-economic failures, gross indiscipline, and blatant corruption is a firm indication that the NDC and the NPP had failed.” “Instead of fixing the problem, orchestrated by their supporters and some leaders, they rather engage in leveling the score card as to who is more violent, corrupt, and lawless,”
Dr Abu Sakara Foster, CPP Flag bearer for Election 2012 told the GNA in an interview in Accra.
Dr Sakara therefore called for radical electoral change…“reject both the NDC and NPP and vote massively for CPP,” to instill fundamental reforms needed to reverse this trend of affairs and to set Ghana again on the path of socio-economic transformation”.
He said the country needs bold and visionary leadership to address the challenges at the fundamental level and appealed to the electorate to use election 2012 to reject politics of insult, tribalism, ethnic attack, and corruption, which has been the hallmark of both the NDC and NPP; “vote for CPP”.
“A CPP government under my leadership will ensure that the state fulfills its responsibility for empowering its citizens to hold government officials accountable…Corruption will be detected and punished, the judiciary will be supported to ensure efficient administration of justice,” he said.
The CPP Flag bearer said as a demonstration of its commitment to the youth, a CPP government will offer their Ghanaian youth quality education; training and skills to enable them to contribute effectively to national development.
He said a CPP government will create the Youth Activity Centres (YAC) in all districts; launch the nation’s first State of the Youth Report to serve as guide for implementation of youth development programmes.
