Two-time presidential candidate Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom has warned persons in leadership positions to respect the rights of “we the people” when complaints about the country’s difficulties are made.
The Founder of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) listed this as one of six wishes he hopes to see fulfilled in 2015 on the part of government.
He claims government gave a deaf ear to them in 2014.
“That when we the people complain about difficulties that confront us as we live in our own country, leaders in government will show us some respect and talk to us in a manner that will give us hope for a better tomorrow.”
Dr Nduom firstly charged all including himself to “work hard to improve the living conditions of workers, the poor, the aged and children”.
War against corruption
Writing on his official Facebook page over the weekend, PPP’s 2012 Presidential Candidate also called for an amendment of the constitution with regard to appointment of metropolitan, municipal and district chief executives (MMDCEs) and the office of the Attorney General (AG) and Ministry of Justice.
While recommending the election of MMDCEs, Dr Nduom charged President John Dramani Mahama to ensure that the office of the AG and the Ministry of Justice are separated “so that an independent prosecutor can lead a serious effort in the war against corruption”.
He also asked all politicians to focus on developing Ghana and improving the standards of living next year instead of concentrating on the 2016 elections.
“I wish all Ghanaians good health, tolerance for each other’s opinions and a good life in 2015,” he concluded.
