With individuals and groups making their resolutions for 2022, the pressure group Economic Fighters League is no different as the convener of the group has declared the year 2022 as a year to demand accountability from people in the corridors of power for a progressive and liberated nation.
The group has promised to adopt the sniffer dog approach in dealing with the government in terms of accountability where nothing escapes them.
According to Convener and Commander-in-Chief of the Fighters, Ernesto Yeboah, the movement is ready and plans to involve the majority of Ghanaians in collectively demanding “for answers from those who enjoy our taxes as emoluments, salaries and whatever.”
“Basically, we are going to demand that every pesewa is accounted for and we are going to involve the people in this process,” he said
Since the inception of the Economic Fighters League, they have been demanding an end to corruption and calling for economic liberation and an even distribution of the country’s social amenities.
The movement’s calls for economic equality gained nationwide attention when the #FixTheCountry movement was birthed in early April 2020.
Mr. Yeboah has also promised that 2022 will be the year where all patriotic Ghanaians will be roped in for the struggle to eliminate the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and National Democratic Congress (NDC) duopoly that has brought about the mismanagement and underdevelopment of the country since 1992.
He said the structures that make and fuel the mismanagement can be attributed to the current system which ensures that the “bad ones are actually the ones with power and control and instead, the good people are not interested in any of the fields or tables of position, they just want to mind their own business.”
Stressing on how to curb and chase the corrupt from power, Mr. Yeboah said we should not and cannot leave the country’s political transformation to so-called career politicians.
“We are looking at entering the electoral space to give the people an alternative and we do not want to make the mistake we made in 2020 where Ghanaians did not have a credible alternative to vote for.”
Mr. Yeboah added that until there is excellent, credible and honest governance, there is no rest for the Fighters and all well-meaning Ghanaians.
