A communicator of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Francis Annom Boateng affectionately called Fransoa, says the political antagonism between the two major political parties in the country, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC), if left unchecked could wreak havoc in the future.
Francis Annom Boateng stressed that , not a day passes without the politicisation of development issues between the two parties, adding that the manner they went about it tended to create sharp divisions within the country rather than building cohesion and consensus for national development.
He was of the view that it was about time that Ghanaians ditched the two parties and went in for another force that was geared more towards nationalism with a focus on uniting the people for development,”Francis Annom Boateng told Kwaku Dawuro on ‘Pae Mu Ka’ on Accra-based Kingdom FM 107.7
Francis Annom Boateng added that, “We need a kind of leadership that will unite the people with a common front to fight poverty but the level of political antagonism and political segregation we are currently witnessing is creating a very sharp division and if care is not taken, it could plunge the country into serious chaos.”
He stressed that at this juncture of the country’s development, it was time “to put our parochial interests aside and take a critical look at the national interest, and that can be done if we change the way we vote.”
