The Mayor of Tamale, Musa Superior, has made a passionate appeal to persons and individuals who are making financial demands from politicians on daily basis to stop because they (Politicians) cannot steal to meet their unbearable demands.
The former aide to President Akufo-Addo says politicians are not manufactures of money hence the need for Ghanaians to be moderate when making monetary demands from politicians.
He rather called on Ghanaians to rather demand effective leadership and and efficient service delivery instead of the monetary demands.
He said, “do not encourage politicians to “steal” public funds; your money. What you can do forcefully and rightly is to request and insist of quality leadership, efficient service delivery and infrastructure development.”
Read below his full post:
Politicians appointed into government roles don’t “manufacture” money. They get paid by GoG as any other public/civil servant. If you need financial help from them to address a personal challenge, be moderate in your request. Remember that, on daily basis, numerous persons seek financial support from their local MPs, MMDCEs, etc to fix their personal problems. Do not encourage politicians to “steal” public funds; your money. What you can do forcefully and rightly is to request and insist of quality leadership, efficient service delivery and infrastructure development.
