Two-time independent presidential candidate, Joseph Osei Yeboah (JOY) has stated that democracy can thrive without political parties which he claimed have significantly caused the country developmental challenges.

He explained that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have over the years come to power under the pretext of development but end up exploiting Ghanaians without any plans of developing the country.

“I dare say without equivocation the political parties belong to the old ideas and unfit even to deepen democracy in Ghana, left alone building a nation.

“Democracy is not an end but a means to an end of building a nation, political parties have long held on to ideas that are out of date, hence the need to look beyond them in elections.

“Political parties are only concerned about winning political power, they operate currently without any principle even as laid down by their forebears.

“They are busy and vuvuzela about nothing except business of deceit, lies, greed, loot, state vampirism and worst off, their operations depict as nation wreckers,” JOY bemoaned.

He recounted how Dr Kwame Nkrumah was able to stand his grounds in the face of colonialism and gained independence for Ghana but observed that the current political leaders cannot sustain the independence, rather leading the country to doom.

“For our neocolonial masters, especially the NPP and NDC, during this Fourth Republic are rather leading Ghana into the valley of darkness. In this darkness is where sincere ignorance is being exhibited by the masses.

“Deceit, gargantuan corruption and conscientious stupidity are being opprobrious perpetrated by the political parties, there is the need for Ghanaians to rethink the options available to them when it comes to choosing leaders for the country.

“The 2020 elections, which I call “Election of Armageddon,” will for the first time in the Fourth Republic, choose an option aside NPP and NDC.

“Ghanaians will not be interested to choose any of the two parties I describe as “devils”, I call for support to change the fortunes of the country and restore it to the vision of Kwame Nkrumah.

“We are never discouraged, knowing that as we continue to lay the sacred stones of liberty and nation building, the old ideas that keep political parties trammeled under greed and corruption will be defeated to fulfill the vision and purpose of the first destiny of motion,” JOY predicted.  -3news.com
