A non-partisan political movement, the Economic Fighters League, says every Ghanaian youth is sick and tired of the politics of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
A snap opinion poll by Global InfoAnalytics shows that more than half of respondents are in favor of calls for the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to step down.
While 54 percent were in support of the call, 40 percent were against it, with the remaining six percent saying they did not have any opinion on the subject matter.
Member of the league, Fighter Asiamah reacting to the polls argued its accuracy saying, “From my data, I will say 100 percent of the youth are sick and tired of the NPP and NDC. We should work with the statistics I have because the Global InfoAnalytics group is made up of a bunch of people who want us to focus on the NPP and NDC. They want us to follow rotten leaders. Their data is a bad one and not something we should be considering.”
He blamed the NDC and NPP for contributing to the recent economic woes of Ghana.
“I would say the statistics presented by Global InfoAnalytics is in the interest of NPP and NDC. The entire youthful population of Ghana says they are sick and tired of both the NPP and NDC and the 1992 constitution must go,” he reiterated in an interview with Don Kwabena Prah on Happy98.9FM’s ‘Epa Hoa Daben’ political talk show.
On the call for the Economic Management Team, led by Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to be replaced following the economic crisis, 78 percent of respondents supported the move while 18 percent opposed it as four percent failed to express their opinion as part of the snap opinion poll by Global InfoAnalytics
The poll also suggested that 12 percent of respondents felt the economic recovery address by the President was inspiring.
25 percent said it was uninspiring. While 22% said the speech addressed the major issues, 38 thought it did not address the main issues.
