Ghana has shifted from the practice of democracy to the practice of aristocracy- where the system is being governed by unqualified people- General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has said.
According ‘General Mosquito’ as he is affectionately called, Ghana’s democracy was on the path of destruction under President Akufo-Addo.
He made the remarks in an interview with Kwabena Agyapong on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm over the arrest and interrogation of Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo.
Mr. Nketiah posited that since Akufo-Addo took over office every institution in Ghana, which is expected to be independent, are being manipulated by his office.
‘’We are on our way from democracy to kakistocracy. Kakistocracy simply means that a system of government being managed by worst or unqualified people,’’ he said.
He bemoaned the use of the police service for political agendas by the current government.
‘’Government is manipulating COP Tiwaa Addo-Danquah. The government is using her like a puppet and pushing her around for their political interest. Her work is now moving the police from professionalism to something else if right thinking citizens fail to comment, we will regret the consequences. That is worrying and affecting the integrity of the police,’’ he opined.
