Deputy national youth organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Eric Edem Agbana, has stated that voting out the Akufo-Addo government would be an act of patriotism and service to the country.
According to him, that is the only democratic means of restoring dignity to the country.
Speaking at a public event to mark the 40th anniversary of the June 4 uprising at Nungua in Accra, Agbana expressed regret that the challenges in the country that led to the June 4 revolution in 1979 have worsened in Ghana’s current dispensation.

“Working tirelessly to regain power from the inept, repressive and sad-sack Akufo-Addo government, will be a patriotic act. It is a rescue mission, in fact, it is a democratic means of restoring the dignity of our country,” he said.
He added that the development calls for collective action to change the narrative since it leaves scars on the conscience of the country and all must take responsibility for the failure to root out corruption and other ills in society.
“Our country is still miserably chained by corruption , perhaps, even more pervasive now, , nepotism, ineptitude and repressive governance. Political and economic injustice is still widespread and a chunk of our people, still live in abject poverty. These are scars on our conscience and we must take collective responsibility for our inability to sustain the ideals of the revolution,” he said.
While accusing the government of being insensitive to the challenges confronting Ghanaians, Agbana said, the NDC government would restore confidence in political leadership in the country.
“The challenges that confronted our country which you (Rawlings) helped redeemed over forty years ago have not only worsened but have taken new dimensions.
I am confident that the next National Democratic Congress, will from 2021, restore confidence in political leadership. It is a matter of moral and political obligation; it is the only way our democracy can be sustained,” he said.
