A social activist, Oscar Komla Bedzra has advised Ghanaians, most especially eligible voters to advocate a ‘No’ vote in the upcoming December referendum which seeks to either allow or disallow political parties from sponsoring candidates into Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executive elections .
He made this point during an interview with Ahotor FM in Accra on Friday.
“…. I see no need for politicisation of district Assembly elections because it will cripple the developmental fortunes of our dear nation and plunge the country into an unpredictable end,” he stated.
Mr Bedzra noted that, the current mode of election of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives is by far nonnegotiable and that, there is no justification for anyone to vote ‘yes’ because Ghana has come of age to distance her decision making from political interference.
“I feel sad for the good people of Ghana whenever I see others advocating for a ‘yes’ vote. I would advise they rather change their stance and advocate for a ‘No’ vote because citizens of developmental mindset who end up being sponsored by political parties cannot peacefully function due to different forms of political interferences”.
He advised Ghanaians to vote ‘No’ to restore the glory of Ghana.
The vibrant activist called on civil society organisations to openly advocate for a ‘No’ vote, adding that silence on advocating for a ‘No’ vote would drive the country into an unpredictable end
“…And I call on civil society organizations to openly advocate for a ‘No’ vote in the upcoming December referendum.
