‘This is not election year, treat Ghanaians as citizens, not voters’ – Gabby tells NPP members

Member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko has sent a piece of advice to his colleague party members.

The staunch NPP sympathizer advised NPP members not to play politics of equalization with inflation figures and treat Ghanaians as voters in election year.

Mr. Otchere-Darko urged the NPP not to play politics of equalization with members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

He said at this stage of the economy where inflation is high, there is a high-interest rate and the cedi is depreciating, the people of Ghana rather need to be treated as citizens.

Gabby noted in a tweet on Tuesday, October 18, that politics of comparisons work better in an election year, therefore, it is prudent for the government to work on how the citizens can make ends meet because that is what they care about.

He maintains currently the world is experiencing some economic crisis that it has never experienced before and Ghana is suffering badly from it because it is recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“NPP shouldn’t play the politics of equalization with the NDC on inflation, interest rates & cedi depreciation.

“The world is facing an economic crisis like never before in peacetime. Ghana has been hit very hard because our economic recovery was being delicately managed pre-COVID,” Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko tweeted.

“This is not election year, so don’t treat Ghanaians like voters but citizens. Politics of comparisons works when elections are before us.

“Right now people just care about how to make ends meet. Use your energy in showing what is being done to bring relief,” he warned.
