Politics in Ghana has taken a new magnitude from where issues and policies are discussed to where personalities are attacked.
Although well-meaning Ghanaians have spoken against these nefarious practices, political actors continue to trade insults during every political campaign circle thus, denting the country’s democratic principles and ruining their relationships.
It is so piteous how we turn to allow odrr ignorance overcloud us and we can not see anything wrong with idiocy.
It is sometimes very unfortunate to see young people fighting against advancement and insulting people who are making positive impacts on society.
I don’t know where some of you, so-called party communicators had this obnoxious and nasty attitude from. One isn’t qualified to become an active politician if his tongue isn’t sharpened enough to verbally attack his opponent. You go around making subversive comments.
What does that tell us about the future?
This doesn’t make you a good communicator. I will exhort you to stop this kind of infantile game.
Try to market your candidate and let people understand what he /she has done and why he or she deserves to go to parliament. I think that will sound wise of you than this archaic and uncivilized style of politics.
Regardless of our disagreements, but let us always try to accord the necessary respect for people who strive to make positive changes in their society.
It is never true that politicians must be loud, aggressive, and abusive. It is an unchecked trait that becomes a norm and it is possible to change it and run clean campaigns. In other words, it is a social construct.
We the Youth have to learn and make the difference if not the future is bleak and with no hope.
