The story of Ghana’s democratic gains is incomplete without the role of the NPP- General Secretary
General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), lawyer Justin Kodua has touted the party as one that has contributed immensely to Ghana’s democracy.
He asserts that the stability, the rule of law, constitutional rule, freedom and justice and respect for the fundamental rights practices in Ghana could not have succeeded without the contributions of the NPP.
Addressing the media at an engagement to commemorate the party’s 30th anniversary, he said the party and its founding founders, including Hackman Owusu Agyemang, BJ Da Rocha, and Alhaji Malik Yakubu, among others, fought the system of intimidation and culture of silence in the PNDC era.
The chief scribe of the elephant family posited that the party has also contributed to several electoral reforms in the country.
He said from the days of the opaque ballot boxes to the current system of the transparent ballot box, the NPP has helped shape the democracy of Ghana.
Lawyer Kodua said ”if you want a party that has contributed to deepening democracy in Ghana, you cannot rule out the NPP.”
He claimed that under former President Kufour, Ghana saw economic growth and stability from the woes he came to meet.
He described the government of Kufour as one that saw several social policies and interventions that are everlasting.
He added that under the current government, Ghana has seen great leadership despite the challenges of Covid-19 and the Russian-Ukraine war.
