The founder of the Progressive Peoples Party (PPP), Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom has disclosed that he was negotiating with other opposition parties to form a coalition to oust the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2016 general elections.
According to him, the two dominant parties, the NDC and the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) have presided over massive corruption and economic instability in their administration and therefore do not have the moral right to seek re-election.
Dr. Nduom who was addressing the media in Accra said these parties have done nothing than to seek their selfish interest when in power.
He cited the poor economy, energy crisis and depreciation of the Cedi to buttress his point, saying both parties should be blamed for the country’s woes.
He said there was the need to form a formidable political party to break the NDC, NPP monopoly in Ghana’s body politic.
“Any administration associated with the NDC and NPP would not work,” Dr. Nduom stressed.
Dr. Nduom noted that a coalition was necessary, especially in the 2016 elections “if we want to see an end of the NDC misrule”.
“It will be such injustice to Ghanaians to see any party in power come January 2017 that is not the PPP or that does not include the PPP, because we will be the stabilising factor in any administration come 2017,” he added.
The presidential hopeful said the PPP and its allies would give sufficient reasons and explanation on why Ghanaians should not continue to be voting the same way.
“It is important that we send a clear message to Ghanaians that if you continue to do the same things, you will see the consequences of it and when that happens, do not come to us,” he stressed.
