The National Democratic Party (NDP), says political goodies are not sufficient for leadership.

“We want to concentrate very much on shared leadership which we see as very sufficient to engender most of the welfare programmes to our populace.”

General Secretary of NDP, Alhaji Mohammed Frimpong, made these remarks on GTV’s ‘My Turn’, a programme for political parties to share highlights of their policies and programmes.

“There are a lot of governance issues that are better dealt with in a shared manner. If we talk about corruption, corruption does not only emanate from the executive level, he said, adding that, they sometimes can start as low as our communities and some of these areas, for instance, are the location of projects. In various communities, projects are offloaded without the awareness of people who reside in the areas.”

“That is why more often than not if people come shouting goodies, they are just a mask for something horrible in terms of what we call pretentious leaders. They might not mean well. If it is so easy just to shout that one will deliver heaven, then, of course, we can have a lot of leaders.”

According to him, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, who is also the founder and flagbearer of NDP, has a good track record.

“Our flagbearer, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, even though has not gone out touting goodies in the past, when she had the chance to serve this country, we all knew how well she performed as a former first lady. 25 years ago, she organised an international conference to make sure that the world was sensitised about women’s empowerment.”

“Back in our own country, she was all over in the nooks and crannies of our villages to make sure that, at least, she impacted the lives of our women and the deprived, he recounted.

He added that Ghanaians should be wary of politicians who promise goodies.

“So when people come shouting goodies, look at them very well with a critical look, more particularly, those who had already had the chance to serve. We must be very careful and beware of their offers. This definitely will not be good leadership.”
