The 2012 Presidential Candidate of the Convention People's Party has admonished the Accra Metropolitan Assembly to not to be partisan, in its decision to remove paraphernalia of the various political Parties in Accra, in honour of our late President John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills.
The AMA had decided to remove party paraphernalia hanging on street lights in the capital, to enable them decorate the City, as part of preparations towards the funeral of late President Mills.
Dr. Sakara however stated in a release on Tuesday that “as far as we all agree to the fact that the late President should be given all the due respect, we also believe that Party paraphernalia together with our national Flags serve as honour to him, since he was a father for all”.
“Poster and paraphernalia of political parties should not be removed discriminately,” Dr Sakara stated
The CPP flagbearer has also cautioned the AMA to take note of all paraphernalia and where they were originally located, to ensure that they fix them back at the same locations after the funeral.
He said leaving out the paraphernalia of any of the parties after the funeral, will amount to abuse of incumbency.
“Let us all as one people ensure we provide an atmosphere that will be fair to all as a sign of honour to late President Mills, who only wanted nothing but good for the people of Ghana. This I believe will make us more united than ever especially as we go into the December elections”, the statement said.
