Forget NDC and NPP - The real division among Ghanaians is between the rich and the poor

Forget NDC and NPP - The real division among Ghanaians is between the rich and the poor

The fact should be stated that we live in an equal world and in Ghana particularly, an unequal society. There are those with money and means and those without and that has been the case for a long time.

Most of the world is convinced that a democracy, where a group of people are elected to seek the interests of the people, is the way to resolve the problems of humanity.

In Ghana for instance, for close to half of the country's life, we have have had power switching between the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

We are told that we are all Ghanaians and we need to come together in spite of party affiliations. But the true divisions are not on party lines.

YEN.com.gh notes four reasons why the real division is between the rich and the poor.

1. Politics is expensive

If one wants to organise and take care of people so that they all can fight for a common cause, that costs money. The more the people, the more one needs.

Political organisation to come and win power in Ghana is not child's play. What the people at the top have in common is the money to make political organisation possible no matter their party.

2. Both NPP and NDC take orders from above

If you have been in Ghana since at least, 2000, you would have known that both political parties have had their plans and promises affected by international partners.

On radio and TV, supporters have shouted about who is doing what. But the truth is, both of their parties are the same in how they are manipulated by international forces.

3. Access to legal and social justice

When it comes to aspects such as someone getting their full social and legal rights, we know for certain that it depends on how much they have in their pocket.

No matter which of the two parties is in power, lawyers are expensive and the police is more likely to come for the poor too.

4. It's all about the money

Forget about tribes and political parties for a second and ask yourself if you will turn down the opportunity to make money with someone even though you do not like their tribe or party.

Rich people do not mind your religion, politics or tribe. The question is, "Is there money to be made?"
