Post-Covid-19 rebuilding crucial in Dec 7 polls, says CVM

Razak Kojo Opoku, Founder and President of CVM

The Concerned Voters Movement has noted that the question of who has what it takes to rebuild Ghana after the novel coronavirus pandemic is crucial in taking decision on the choice of the leader and political party that should be voted for in this year’s general election.

The group has believes the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) should be the choice for the Ghanaian electorate in this regard.

“What Ghanaians care about most post Covid-19 is the comprehensive rebuilding of the economy, and honestly the policy of mortuary and okada proposed by John Mahama cannot be the solutions to the rebuilding of the Ghanaian economy,” the group said.

A statement released yesterday, and signed by the founder and president of the group, Razak Kojo Opoku, said “the rebuilding of the Ghanaian economy Post Covid-19 would be about  the consolidation of the gains of Akufo-Addo’s government and continuation of the 1-District-1-Factory Policy, Planting for Food and Jobs, Aquaculture for Food and Jobs, Rearing for Food and Jobs, digitalization of the economy, prudent management of the indicators of the economy, Free SHS Policy, roads construction, infrastructure etc.”

According to the group, “the only party with the solid track record and competencies to rebuild the Ghanaian economy is NPP under Akufo-Addo’s Government.”

Sophomoric humour

The group described the campaign style and message of the opposition NDC as being “full of sophomoric humour and distortions.”

It stated that, having taken time to peruse the manifesto of the NDC and keenly monitored the commentaries from its Communications Bureau, “one can boldly conclude that the NDC under the leadership of John Mahama is not serious for the 2020 general elections.”

“The campaign messages, policy alternatives and strategies of the NDC for December 7, 2020 are like a kind of comedy that only appeal to the silly sense of immature people,” the statement noted.

Wise voters

In the view of CVM, lies and propaganda have been the central theme of the NDC, adding that “Ghanaians have not fallen for such immaturity on the part of the NDC Communications Bureau.”

“The Ghanaian voters are wiser now; the 2008 and 2012 propaganda strategies of NDC being repeated by the current NDC Communications Bureau would only help NDC to further move down from 44.4 per cent to around 30-35 per cent in the 2020 general elections.

“Since the wise men of NDC, including the Founder J. J. Rawlings are quiet, this has given room to some young men who are conceited, immature and poorly informed on national public discourse to spearhead John Mahama’s campaign for the 2020 general elections,” it said.

The group noted that Ghanaians are “happy about Akufo-Addo’s free water and free electricity policy”.

“The wisdom and knowledge of Ghanaians completely far outweigh the lies and propaganda of NDC. The attempts of NDC to steer propaganda to discredit the NPP Administration shall fall flat in December 7th.

“Ghanaians shall finally say to greedy ‘kwaata’ John Mahama that enough is enough and that he should be satisfied with the opportunity they gave him in the past to serve as Assemblyman, Member of Parliament, Deputy Minister, Minister, Vice-President, Acting President and a President, all on the account of the taxpayers’ money,” it added.
