The Progressive People’s Party says it is preparing for presidential and parliamentary elections in 2024.
The party claims there is no need to haste because the general elections will be held in 17 months.
Kit Yawson, Chairman of the United Kingdom and Ireland branches, stated that the party was prepared and will surprise Ghanaians in the general elections.
Mr. Yawson told Dr. Ren on Rainbow Radio 92.4Fm in the UK by phone that there was no need to rush like the two main political parties (NDC and NPP), whose only purpose is to win elections, mismanage the country, and have no interest in developing the country.
He lambasted the two parties, accusing them of planning elections while neglecting the country’s growth.
”We’re in the race,” he told Dr. Ren on Rainbow Radio 92.4 FM in the United Kingdom. In silence, there is dignity. The election has not yet taken place. It is 17 months away. Any serious Ghanaian listening to me will understand what I mean. Ghana is a tiny country, but we make a lot of noise. Even though Sudan is larger than us and has experienced instability, we are making a noise. We are wasting time on primaries when there are serious issues that the country needs to address”.
He believes that although the two parties have had the opportunity to run the country for numerous years, no big changes have occurred.
He stated that the late Nkrumah left a blueprint and a trademark that could have served as a guide in modernising the country; but, these two parties have not been able to achieve what Ghana’s first president has done.
”Because our first leader [Kwame Nkrumah] set the example, everyone finds it difficult to follow. He established the trademark and plan, but no one has been able to replicate them. If our leaders had been serious and not joking, we would have built a rail line from Nzema to Ivory Coast. We have beautiful land, but it has become overgrown. This is what we should be thinking about, but we are always thinking about elections.”
