Only The Elite Benefits From Ghana’s Politics - Tony Aidoo

Ghana’s former Ambassador to the Netherlands, Dr Tony Aidoo says Ghana’s political leadership only benefits few whiles the masses suffer.


He explained that, the elite and those close to the presidency are mostly beneficiaries of state gains.

According to him, it is time for critical thinking in order to put in a place a system where everyone benefits from the governance system.

“The welfare of the mass population has not mattered much to the political leadership as much as their own parochial welfare and every change of government is nothing but a change of an elite to replace the previous administrations elite,”

“The gap between rich and poor continues to widen. We should ask ourselves how much wealth can an individual, a politician, create, in order to create wealth for even generations unborn at the expense of contemporary populations under circumstances in which a large majority of our people are indigent.

“…And we ask ourselves what is the value of the democracy? Is this the democracy that is beneficial to the masses or to the few? This is the question.” he said at a conference organised by The Progressive Intellectuals in Accra on Tuesday, 2 October 2018, on the theme: “Rethinking Political Leadership in Ghana”.
