Chief calls for the abolition of winner takes all concept

The Paramount Chief of Sagnarigu, Naa Yakubu Abdulai, has suggested for Ghana to do away with the concept of an all-inclusive government.

He explained that such a concept sets the stage for disaster and could eventually hinder the execution of the plans of the administration in office.
Naa Abdulai noted that it is usually difficult for an opposition party to play a vital role in the work of the party in power, as their ideologies may clash.

He made the suggestion at a roundtable discussion organised by the Coalition of Domestic Election Observers (CODEO) in Accra.
The end result, Naa Abdulai stated “is that the well-being of the citizenry hangs in the balance and the approach gives the government the opportunity to implement all of its policies.”

On the issue of vigilantism, he advised that the government, political parties, security agencies as well as all Ghanaians should come together to deal with the issue before it becomes uncontrollable.

Naa Abdulai pointed out that the recent attacks on state institutions and people by some young persons who sought to associate themselves with the ruling party were not the best.
He indicated that political parties should be committed to a peace pledge, so that they would be held accountable should they digress from the tenets of their pledge. –
