Dr Sakara cautions AMA against removal of party paraphernalia in honour of Mills
The 2012 Presidential Candidate of the Convention
People’s Party has admonished the Accra
Metropolitan Assembly to not to be partisan, in
its decision to remove paraphernalia of the
various political Parties in Accra, in honour of
our late President John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills.
The AMA had decided to remove party paraphernalia
hanging on street lights in the capital, to enable
them decorate the City, as part of preparations
towards the funeral of late President Mills.
Dr. Sakara however stated in a release on Tuesday
that “as far as we all agree to the fact that the
late President should be given all the due
respect, we also believe that Party paraphernalia
together with our national Flags serve as honour
to him, since he was a father for all”.
“Poster and paraphernalia of political parties
should not be removed discriminately,” Dr Sakara
The CPP flagbearer has also cautioned the AMA to
take note of all paraphernalia and where they were
originally located, to ensure that they fix them
back at the same locations after the funeral.
He said leaving out the paraphernalia of any of
the parties after the funeral, will amount to
abuse of incumbency.
“Let us all as one people ensure we provide an
atmosphere that will be fair to all as a sign of
honour to late President Mills, who only wanted
nothing but good for the people of Ghana. This I
believe will make us more united than ever
especially as we go into the December elections”,
the statement said.
