Ghana’s former Chief of Defence Staff, Brigadier Joseph Nunoo-Mensah, has stated that both the NPP and NDC are incapable of bringing the change Ghana deserves–and that only a new movement can bring the needed change.
Speaking to Citi News on the sidelines of the 38th Anniversary celebration to commemorate the 31st December Revolution in Winneba, the former Chief of Defence Staff stated that:
“Our two main political parties, the NDC and the NPP, to my mind are incapable as of now, to handle our situations. There is an urgent need for a new national movement that will inculcate the ideals and values of the 31st December revolution into Ghanaians in order to be able to bring about the changes we desire,” he said.
“It is only then, that we can build a genuine democracy. Your Excellencies, the central message of the 31st December Revolution, as I understood it then and still do at this time, was the establishment of a social order in which there will be justice, law and order, and equity in our society for everyone. As of today, only a small percentage of the people at the highest level of politics are having a very good time while a huge chunk of the ordinary people, are having a very rough time and hardly able to survive. This situation is not only evil, immoral and criminal. But it is also untenable as it is against the tenants of the 31st December Revolution,” he added.
