PAA Kwesi Nduom, the presidential candidate of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), has appealed to Ghanaian youth of voting age to be mindful of the kind of candidates they vote for in this year’s elections.
This, he said, is to save the nation from being ruled by another bunch of incompetent people over the next four years.
According to him, it has become necessary for the youth to vote wisely considering the high level of incompetence being displayed by the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) government in managing the country’s economy, resulting in untold hardships for many Ghanaians.
Dr. Nduom was delivering a special lecture organized by the National Union of Ghana Students of Islamic University (NUGS-IUCG) Power Talk Series under the theme: “Empowering The Youth: A Bold Step to National Development.”
He urged the youth and every voter to endeavor to vote for feasible plans this year, stating that Ghanaians have become ‘gullible.’ According to Dr. Nduom, Ghanaians must question politicians to ascertain how feasible it would be to get their plans implemented when elected into office.
“They promise, we clap, and they go and don’t implement them. We must decide to stop this. It is time you hold your future in your hands,” he said, while pointing out that Ghanaians have over the years failed to probe campaign promises of political parties and their agents.
He expressed the belief that failure on the part of Ghanaians to vote based on issues was responsible for the challenges facing the nation under President John Mahama-led NDC administration which has proven over the last three years to be grossly incompetent in managing the affairs of the state.
According to him, Ghana’s economy has not been restructured after several promises from the current government.
He reiterated his desire to stem out corruption from the Ghanaian society when given the nod in this year’s election by setting up an independent prosecutor who, he said, shall examine all the administrations from 1992 to 2016 on the usage of state resources.
He observed that the era of impunity would be a thing of the past when he comes to power.
