Multi-Party GovernanceA Lecturer with the department of History and Political studies at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), and the founder of Think Tank Intercessors Fellowship (TTI) in Kumasi, Dr.Samuel Adu-Gyamfi has cautioned the youth and the general public not to allow themselves to be used by any politician for their gains.

In an interview with Focus News’ Nana Ampadu, Dr.Samuel Adu-Gyamfi said: “I grew up in a zongo community, I have a PhD, I teach in the university. Let no zongo boy allow himself to be used by any politician or political party. That is not the fate of those of us who grew up in zongos.’’

“Your vote is your power. The direction of your vote is contingent on the direction of your mind,” he further disclosed to the youth of Ghana. He asserts that if one allows himself to be used by a politician then there is ‘a hole in the brain’.

He also cautioned the general public to see to a peaceful election. ‘If you vote go home and pray and wish for the best for this country,’ he added.

Ghana goes to the polls in November to elect a President and legislatures for the various constituencies in the country.
