We Do Not Need An Africa Day Holiday - Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom

The 2012 presidential candidate of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom, has called for the annulment of the African Union holiday, saying he will get rid of it when he becomes president .

The AU holiday is unpopular among many Ghanaians, who believe there is nothing worth celebrating about the day as corruption, poverty and poor governance are still firmly rooted on the continent.

The renowned business man believes the holiday is meaningless adding, “… we need to WORK for stronger institutions, good economies across the continent and prosperity for our people. These will not be achieved through holiday upon holiday. We lose productivity and reduce the opportunity to become competitive nations this way.”

Dr Nduom made the statements on his Facebook page Wednesday

Read full statement:

“WE DO NOT NEED AN AFRICA DAY HOLIDAY – LETS GET RID OF IT.

Another holiday, to celebrate Africa Day? Why? I am for commemorating this day to remember those who fought for our liberation and independence and to think through what we must do to guarantee African people a high quality of life.

But we need to WORK for stronger institutions, good economies across the continent and prosperity for our people.

These will not be achieved through holiday upon holiday. We lose productivity and reduce the opportunity to become competitive nations this way.

Let’s get rid of it. This will be on my hit list as the President of the Republic of Ghana.”
