Ghanaian Lawyer Calls for Alternatives to Corrupt NDC and NPP Parties

by Victor Adetimilehin

A Ghanaian lawyer has expressed his frustration with the two dominant political parties in the country, accusing them of being corrupt and ineffective.

Martin Kpebu, a private legal practitioner, said on TV3’s New Day programme that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP), which have alternated in power since 1992, have little to offer Ghanaians. He argued that both parties have failed to deliver on their promises and have been involved in various scandals and controversies. He singled out the current NPP government, led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, as being more corrupt than the previous NDC administration, led by former President John Dramani Mahama.

“We are tired of the NDC and the NPP; they are the same. it is now proven that the NDC is less corrupt than the NPP because of the gargantuan corruption we are facing today]. Mahama was also corrupt, but Akufo-Addo’s corruption is on a grander scale. “He (Akufo-Addo) is the mother serpent of corruption. So, we want something different from NDC and NPP.

He also dismissed the idea of Alan Kyerematen, a former minister and a potential NPP presidential candidate, running as an independent candidate in the 2024 election. He suggested that the religious community in Ghana should come together and present a candidate who can challenge the NDC and NPP duopoly.

“I don’t support Alan as an independent candidate. I have made it clear that the people I support for independent candidateship are the churches. Let the churches come together – the Catholic Church, the Pentecostals, the Charismatics, the Chief Imam and his followers – let them come together and give us a candidate to rival the NDC and the NPP.” His comments come at a time when Ghana is facing economic challenges, social unrest and public dissatisfaction with the government.

Many Ghanaians have also expressed their desire for more political options and reforms in the electoral system. Some civil society groups and activists have launched campaigns to promote independent candidates and third parties in the upcoming elections. They hope to break the monopoly of the NDC and NPP and bring more diversity and accountability to Ghana’s democracy. For many Ghanaians, the future feels uncertain, as economic hardship continues to grow in the country and the West African region. The recent trend of coups across the region is reflective of the collective outcry against corrupt politicians in the economic and political block.
