Accra, June 1, GNA – MOVE GHANA is a social movement formed to canvass for support nationwide against the current system of party politics in favour of a truly nationalistic approach to the governance of the country.
Through this social youth driven movement, the concept of ‘The Third Force’ shall be pursued by employing innovative, radical and peaceful Political Action Force – ultimately to unseat the two major political parties- The ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), which have ruled the country since the inception of the Fourth Republic.
A statement issued by Sonny Yenibey Namouz, Founding Member and Advocate of MOVE GHANA, said the phenomenon had led to economic chaos and apartheid marked by corruption, ineptitude, seeming nonchalance of the government to the plight of the people.
The MOVE GHANA would be the third force of political mobilisation to break the monopoly of the NDC and NPP.
It said the Movement shall rally the youth and provide support for an independent presidential candidate to contest the November 7 general election.
The candidate to be chosen shall be one who ardently shares the convictions and ideals of the movement and shall have no partisan affiliations.
In the event where the candidate already has partisan ties, he or she shall be required to repudiate such ties beforehand.
The ideal candidate shall be one who appeals to Ghanaians and whose leadership abilities are testable.
“Our community based volunteers shall be tasked to conduct door to door outreach and talk to the people in their various dialects to sensitise them on the need for real change; not a change between the same people.”
The statement said the MOVE GHANA Independent Presidential Candidate shall pursue social democratic policies, clean up the system, wipe-out corruption by setting frightful examples to deter perpetrators, provide meaningful jobs, upgrade the education facilities, broaden the economy and provide equal opportunity for Ghanaians to partake in governance.
“In the new era, every Ghanaian and every Ghanaian community shall be treated fairly and equally. Corruption, Favoritism, Cronyism, Ineptitude and all the mediocrity will be things of the past.
“MOVE GHANA is inviting everybody especially those in the Diaspora to get in touch to offer their help in whatever form to support an auspicious and august cause.”
