Let’s get rid of AU holiday – Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom

By on
paakwesinduomThe Founder of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom says he will ‘get rid of’ the African Union holiday when he becomes President.

Today, Wednesday May 25 marks the AU Day commemoration and the day is observed as a public holiday in the country.

However, Dr Nduom says ‘we need to work for stronger institutions’ as a result observing ‘holiday upon holiday’ will not help the country.

Below is what he wrote on his facebook page

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.
