Professor Joseph Osafo has offered words of counsel to the founder of the Movement for Change, Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, and his ardent followers, urging them to recognize the task ahead if they want to make an impact in next year’s elections.
During an 'Afrafranto' walk in Kumasi, the Ashanti Region, a massive gathering of Alan's supporters, often referred to as the "swarm of butterflies," adorned the streets.
The walk saw thousands of people wearing yellow attire and displaying placards expressing their support for Alan and the Afrafranto movement.
Alan Kyerematen's track record and commitment to initiating change have resonated strongly with Ghanaians seeking an alternative to entrenched political strategies.
With the 2024 General Elections drawing nearer, the Yellow Revolution, as it is commonly known, continues to gain momentum with each passing day.
However, Professor Joseph Osafo, during an interview on Peace FM's "Kokrokoo" morning show, emphasized that the Movement for Change must work hard to realize its vision.
While acknowledging the potential of the movement to become a third force in Ghana's political landscape, he stressed the need for them to do work hard to capture the attention of the millions still committed to the two major political parties.
"Afrafranto is bold that it wants to pick Ghana and give us maybe a third force, but that will require doing something extraordinary.
“It will require doing something extraordinary because the millions who are still committed to NPP, the millions committed to NDC, if you indeed want to change their minds between now and 2024; I can tell you, you must do something extraordinary. And the transformation you hope to establish, you must touch the core," Professor Osafo remarked.
