The 2020 flagbearer of the Progressive People’s Party(PPP), Brigitte Dzogbenuku has urged Ghanaians, especially, the youth not to lose hope in the country.
Although, she said, things might not have been good as expected under this current regime, “yet there is still hope for the future”.
She blamed successive governments, particularly, the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) government for the suffering many Ghanaians were going through currently.
“Ghana is endowed with so many natural and human resources, so the question is why are we where we are now”, the gender activist quizzed?
Ms. Dzogbenuku made these observations while addressing an array of national issues on Amansan Television’s (ATV) political show Kanawu’ on Saturday, August 12, 2023.
According to the PPP’s 2020 presidential candidate, the country’s problems were as a result of bad leadership.
She said both NPP and NDC had not helped Ghanaians who over thirty (30) years of this Fourth Republic had entrusted the country’s resources into their hands.
For instance, she did not understand why a political party would come into power and render people jobless without creating jobs.
Mincing no words, Ms Dzogbenuku who is also an entrepreneur noted that the collapse of indigenous banks by the NPP’s government was a big mistake.
She was, however, not surprised that the Bank of Ghana (BoG) which revoked the licences of some Ghanaian banks has now found itself on the wrong side of the law.
The gender activist was also not happy that some women in the country had gone quite when they should have made their voices heard on national issues affecting the country.
She therefore called on the youth in the country to come out in their numbers and support the PPP in 2024 as it is the only alternative party that can save this country.
“Everybody’s contribution is important so that we can work together and save our dear nation. There is still hope, let’s not give up”, she said.
