Are you looking forward to the day when Members of Parliament would diligently serve the country and not political parties or where all the arms of government would function independently?

Then until the Progressive People’s Party takes charge of government, such a change wouldn’t come, Mr. Charles Owusu has observed.

In an interview with Peacefmonline.com the PPP scribe lambasted the two major political parties in Ghana for being the reason the nation can’t develop steadily. According to him, both the NDC and NPP see development as changing a “housing of a phone” and not a process for real improvement.

“When the NPP and NDC talk about change, they equate it to having a white-coloured phone and changing the housing to black”, he explained.

Mr. Owusu added that when the PPP suggested that citizens vote to elect District and Metropolitan Chief Executives, both the NDC and NPP kicked against it and to make matters worse, the same political parties didn’t share in the idea of separating the Attorney General Department from the Ministry of Justice when the call came.

Aside this, Mr. Owusu noted that the major parties have also shown no interest in cutting down the size of government.

“The money we spend in this country is more than what we are able to generate. We need to cut down the size of government and the NPP isn’t ready...during former President Kufour’s tenure, he had seventy seven (77) ministers and currently, the NDC is in power and they also have seventy six (76) of them. We don’t need the changing of phone housing type of development”, he said.

He charged Ghanaians to wake up and vote for the PPP which is ready to bring about real change.
