Founder of the National Interest Movement (NIM), Dr Michael Abu Sakara Foster, has explained the need to get some members of the NPP and NDC on board for a government of national unity.

He says the move will be relevant if his Movement’s alliance with Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen’s Movement for Change (M4C) succeeds in getting an independent candidate as President.

According to him, “the talents of the country can never be in only one group of people” and “it’s not all of them (NDC and NPP) who are bad.”

On TV3’s Hot Issues Sunday, April 14, 2024, Dr. Abu Sakara noted that they will need a blend of the best they have with the good ones from the two main political parties to form the government of national unity.

“We are going to use the best people who are with us, and then also get people who are good from NPP, NDC to form a government of national unity. You cannot say that ‘don’t touch those people from NPP, NDC, they are bad’, it’s not all of them who are bad. Some of them have never even had the opportunity withing their own party to do anything so you have to be realistic about that.

“In addition to that, the talents of the country can never be in only one group of people, it is spread, so if we are serious about the government of national unity, we have to be able to stretch out and bring the best people to the fore and as an independent candidate, you cannot afford not to do that,” he explained.

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.
