Ghanaians will vote based on policy, not Religion – NPP Communication Dir

In the lead-up to the December 2024 elections in Ghana, discussions surrounding the religious affiliation of presidential candidates have surfaced.

Alan Kyerematen, Founder and Leader of the Movement for Change (M4C), recently called on Christians to consider electing a ‘Christlike’ president, given the predominantly Christian nature of the nation.

However, Koenders Baidoo, the NPP Communication Director for Sefwi Wiawso Constituency in the Western North region, has vehemently opposed the notion of voting based on religious grounds.

In an interview with Pollo Esposito on the DBDB show on De Beat Fm, Baidoo stressed the importance of voting for candidates based on their policies and developmental agendas rather than their religious background.

He highlighted initiatives such as the free Senior High School (SHS) program and other intervention programs implemented by the current government as factors that influence voters’ decisions.

Koenders Baidoo noted that both Christians and Muslims, along with traditionalists, are part of one people, and the focus should be on policies and development projects rather than religious affiliation.

He urged his party members to unite and work hard for the upcoming elections, emphasizing that winning an election requires effort.

Regarding the differences between former President John Mahama and Vice President Dr. Bawumia, he pointed out that the main distinction is that one has previously held the position of president.

He cautioned against engaging in what he described as “dirty politics” and called for a focus on development and progress.

Koenders Baidoo also highlighted the work of Festus Bumankama Agyapong, the NPP parliamentary candidate for Sefwi Wiawso Constituency, who is spearheading various development projects in the area, including road reshaping, school construction, and providing clean water.

He urged constituents to consider these efforts when casting their votes.
