We are striving to modernise Ghanaian politics by raising the standard of governance, restoring confidence in our democracy and inspiring social cohesion. Nepotism is a needless obstacle to the progress we are working toward; it is detrimental to our national interest. We are moving Ghana forward and that style of backward politics must be left behind.
Here are three reasons why:
- Nepotism places privilege above merit and limits opportunities to a select-few. It perverts the ideal of equal opportunity and undermines a social system based on merit.
- People should not gain government or government-related positions simply because of family relations or personal relationships.
- We must be diverse with public positions and give chances to hardworking people.
The social system is best protected when there is a level playing field for everyone.
