Founder of the National Interest Movement (NIM), Dr Michael Abu Sakara Foster, has shared what inspired his Movement’s alliance with Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen’s Movement for Change (M4C).

The two political organisations, have disclosed that they have concluded talks with a number of political entities and individuals to establish a grand Alliance to contest the 2024 general elections.

According to the former flag bearer of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), they came together because apart from the two groups being movements, “we have the same outlook and the same objectives.  We want to see a transformative change not just a change. A change in terms of getting the quantum leap in development that have eluded us all this while so that objective brought us together.”

Speaking on Hot Issues on TV3 Sunday, April 14, 2024, Dr. Abu Sakara continued that the Alliance is something he has been talking about over the past half decade since he exited the CPP, averring that as the only means to break the NPP-NDC duopoly.

He says he believes this is the right time to right the wrongs having endured the hardships the two political parties have subjected Ghana into for the past three decades and over.

“We have all been thinking about how we can form the vehicle that will be an alternative to the NPP and NDC and offer us something beyond what they have offered us so that again became the driving force.

“We know individually we may not have the wherewithal because the elections have now been heavily monetized so it is going to take a collective effort of people who are not on the other side, but now on non-aligned domain to come together rather than contest individually within that domain.  So it’s a natural and organic process that happened and it has had its time,” he indicated.

Meanwhile, the Alliance will be launched Wednesday, April 17, 2024, according to a press statement dated April 04, 2024.

“The Alliance, named the ‘Alliance for Revolutionary Change’ (ARC) will aggressively mobilize Ghanaians from across the country, particularly the youth and women, irrespective of their religious, political, and ethnic affiliations, in a grand coalition to elect the first Independent Candidate as the President of the Republic of Ghana,” the statement added.
