Mr Emmanuel Wilson, General Secretary Aspirant of the Peoples National Convention (PNC), has asserted that the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) is desperate for power whilst the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) is complacent.
Ghana’s Election 2016 therefore opens the flood gate for third force political party to emerge to inject democratic dynamism and sense of urgency in governance to transform the country.
“For a very long time, the Ghanaian populace have cried and looked forward to experiencing a third force in Ghanaian party politics…Election 2016 offers the Nkrumaists political front an opportunity to provide that third force,” Mr Wilson told the Ghana News Agency in an interview on Monday.
He noted that recent internal political antagonism within the leadership of the NPP is clear demonstration that the party has failed Ghanaians as watchdog of the ruling NDC..."both the NPP and NDC are culpable for the economic crisis the country find its and must be rejected by the electorate, come December 7, 2016".
“The other parties Convention Peoples Party (CPP), PNC, Progressive Peoples Party (PPP) have demonstrated unity in diversity… even in our independent political stand point we work across board.
“We have strong political leaderships leading the agenda for change, Ghanaians must reject disorganised NPP and non-performing NDC,” Mr Wilson stressed.
The Aspiring PNC lauded the CPP for successfully organising a National Delegates Congress to elects its national leadership.
“Our founding fathers Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah and Dr Hilla Limann believed in the beauty and strength that unity brings.
“Nkrumah exhibited this by going beyond Ghana to attempt to create a United Africa. Years on, Nkrumah's own family is finding it extremely difficult to create a united front.
“Our two families – PNC and CPP that believes and professes that one of its pillars on which our tradition was built is to see the coming into reality of a true United Africa, is now struggling to bring its own front together,” he noted.
Mr Wilson said PNC and CPP worked together during the Kumbungu by-election in 2013, and won the seat.
“In 2015 in Talensi, the CPP and PNC worked together in the by-election, and though we did not win the seat, we clearly sent a message.
“We sent a message that the Nkrumaist, when we work together will give Ghanaians the alternative that this country deserves,” he said.
Mr Wilson asked: “What is preventing us from working together in the coming general election? What is preventing us from presenting a United Nkrumaist in the 2016 general election so to save this country?
“Why are we in a rush to align and work tirelessly for and with other political parties, particularly the NDC and the NPP, and yet, we struggle to team up with our own selves?
“Why does the CPP and the PNC struggle to work together for the betterment of the Nkrumaist and our tradition? “Why are we not willing to do away with our individual interests so to let the collective interest of our great tradition prevail?”
