MPOHOR/WASSA EAST : Party followers must be abreast with its ideology
The District Chief Executive for the Mpohor Wassa East District, Mr Anthony Bassaw, has observed that most political party followers in Ghana are not conversant with their party’s ideologies and values.
In view of this, they are unable to propagate the party’s policies and programmes to the society.
Mr Bassaw made the observation at a roundtable discussion held in Daboase as part of the activities marking the 11th Annual Constitutional Week.
He, therefore, urged the hierarchy of the various political parties to put in place mechanisms that would educate their followers on the party’s philosophy, principles, values and programmes.
He expressed unhappiness with the attitude of some party followers who constantly make unnecessary demands from government appointees, describing it as “a nuisance to the smooth administration
of state institutions.”
The DCE said he had been finding it extremely difficult to uphold certain principles of life since he was appointed about two years ago.
He said: “The principle of common sense demands that one is supposed to work hard to be successful in life but sometimes individuals and students who had failed miserably in their respective
examinations come to me with their parents, chiefs, priests, opinion leaders, party functionaries and highly respected personalities in the community asking me to facilitate admission for their wards.”
And if one refuses to assist them, the individual is tagged with all sorts of negative names and accusers embark on character assassination schemes to destroy hard won reputations, he complained.
Mr Bassaw urged the society to be careful in finding out how people make their wealth and that if they used the right channel, they should be commended for others to learn from them whilst those who use deceitful schemes should be reported to the security agencies for the
law to deal with them.
