Bernard Monnah joins PNC presidential race

Former National Chairman of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Bernard Monnah, has officially declared his intention to run for the presidency in the December 7 general elections on the ticket of the PNC.

Mr Monnah announced during an interview on Pan-African TV on Saturday, January 20, 2024, while discussing the state of the PNC.

Mr Monnah acknowledged that the PNC is undergoing a transformation, expressing optimism that the party will improve after completing its internal preparations for the upcoming elections.

He emphasised the need for a new political era, urging both the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to step aside and make way for a fresh perspective in the country's governance.

The former PNC National Chairman highlighted the prevalent despair among the youth and attributed his decision to enter the presidential race to the disillusionment of the younger generation.

Mr Monnah pointed out that many young people have lost hope in the two major political parties, resulting in a significant number leaving the country whenever the opportunity arises.

His candidacy aims to offer a lifeline to the disillusioned youth, he noted.

Mr Bernard Monnah asserted that the established parties have failed the youth, emphasising the need for a new approach to revive a seemingly lifeless Ghana, particularly in the context of dealings with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Mr Monnah, known for his civil rights activism, will face competition from other aspirants, including Mr Samson Asaki Awingobit, the Executive Secretary of the Importers and Exporters Association of Ghana, who has also declared his intention to vie for the PNC flagbearer position.
