‘It is the social responsibility of every Ghanaian to ensure the end of ‘Sakawa’ government’ – EGLE Party
The functional executives and the entire membership of the EGLE PARTY have unanimously endorsed the candidature of the National Democratic Congress’s (NDC) Flagbearer for the 2020 general election Mr. John Dramani Mahama.
The party announced their endorsement at its 2020 National Conference held at the Kama Conference Center, in Accra yesterday.
Addressing party faithful’s, sympathizers, and the media, the National Chairman of the Party, Mr. Kwaku Agyekum emphasised that the EGLE Party is confident and convinced, that a vote for NDC’s John Mahama during the upcoming presidential elections is a vote for schools, jobs, roads, sustainable employment, good economic management, improved quality free healthcare and prosperity for all.
Mr. Agyekum explained that the Egle Party had weighed both the NDC and NPP manifestoes, the personalities, character, and experience of the candidates of the two major political parties and have come to terms that the NDC’s candidate Mr. John Dramani Mahama stands tall among the two presidential aspirants.
The party’s National Chairman did not mince words when he described President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo as nepotistic and corrupt. “Today everything points to the fact that Nana Addo is the most corrupt President in the history of Ghana,” Mr. Agyekum added.
“We are therefore using this platform to call on all our rank and file to campaign vigorously for the NDC and its flagbearer in the upcoming December election,” he added.
Reading the endorsement statement, the General Secretary (GS) of the EGLE Party, Mr. David Kwaku Arthur told the gathering that the party being one of the oldest and most formidable political parties in the Fourth Republic during their rounds across the country, gathered numerous sentiments of the people representing the expectations and aspirations of a critical mass of the Ghanaian citizenry.
“We realized that for the first time in a long while, most of the issues the EGLE Party decided to pursue coincided with the programme of action of the NDC as captured in the People’s Manifesto.
This revelation showed that the National Democratic Congress led by President John Dramani Mahama and the EGLE part have so much in common. Consequently, the EGLE party upon reflection and thorough consultations with the rank and file, the founder, the grassroots and the National Executive Committee unanimously agreed not to file candidates for both the Presidential and Parliamentary elections across the country, but rather mobilize all effort and command of the party to throw its weight behind H.E John Dramani Mahama and the National Democratic Congress in this 2020 General Elections, Mr. Arthur explained.
He continued saying the EGLE party, in line with its quest to help the NDC win the election, will deploy its members to join the NDC campaign teams at all levels – Constituency, Regional and at the National level. The EGLE party will however run separate campaigns also for H.E. John Dramani Mahama, in line with the same agenda.
“As a social democratic party interested in the social and economic development of our people, we have a social responsibility to work towards the unseating of this incompetent, inept and corrupt family and friends of the sakawa government.
Indeed, it is a social responsibility of every Ghanaian to ensure the end of the wanton dissipation of public funds and state resources on only one family in the country.
“Ladies and gentlemen, Ghana in the last three and half years has witnessed the lowest form of governance in our country. The highest office of the land is at its all-time low with lies and deception from the first two gentlemen of the land to the last government appointee. A government that promised heaven on earth is delivering real hell to its people. A government that has over 125 ministers and has borrowed over 140 billion Ghana Cedis and yet has nothing to show for it,” he reiterated.
“Isn’t it a shame that instead of this clueless government to apologize to Ghanaians, they have come to seek re-election for four more years? I ask them this question, four more to do what? Four more for corruption? Four more for family and friends? Four more for press suppression? Or four more for Agyapa and PDS looting? Four more for mismanagement of the economy? Or four more to collapse Ghanaian businesses,” The GS of EGLE party soberly enquired.
He maintained that Ghanaians deserve better hence every lover of democracy, and the good of Ghana should come together to support the NDC and John Mahama to kick out Nana Addo and his wicked government out of power come December 7th to restore some dignity in our governance.
“On the election day, let us think about Ghana first and vote wisely. Let no one deceive you, Vote wisely, vote JOHN DRAMANI MAHAMA, the Commissioner General, Infrastructural General and the Nation Builder,” Mr. Arthur cried.
