Multiparty democracy is not the best form of governance, Independent Presidential Candidate in the 2020 elections, Jacob Osei Osei Yeboah (JOY), has said.
He described this form of democracy as a worldwide scam.
Speaking on the Key Points on TV3 Saturday October 21, Mr Osei Yeboah said the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) that have dominated the governance of the country, have taken undue advantage of the defects in the constitution
“We need to change the constitution, until the constitution is changed we can’t develop” he said.
He added “the NDC and the NPP are benefiting from the defects in the Constitution.
“Multiparty democracy is a worldwide scam, those who claim to be practicing it don’t believe in it.”
For his part, the Founder of National Interest Movement Dr Abu Sakara said Ghana needs a long term national development plan in order to ensure the needed development for its people.
For him, the trend where one group of people form a government and implement a particular plan only for another set of people to take over to also come with their own plan is not helping the country.
He explained on the same show that the nation is faced with a crisis situation which must first of all be contained.
The Presidential Candidate for the Convention Peoples Party (CPP) in the 2012 elections said “Accept and admit that no one group of people in Ghana can solve the problems. We have to come together, build consensus, face reality and come up with long term plan plan”
“We need a reformed development agenda that looks at the fundamentals. Lashing the [President] may give us some satisfaction but it won’t solve the fundamental problem.
“Right now, we have a crisis situation, the first is to contain it.”
