A new political party has been established ahead of the 2024 election, and it is urging Ghanaians to become members of it in order to foster a new and improved nation.
The People’s Redemption Movement (PRM), as the group is known, aims to revive and restore Ghanaians’ optimism in this era of immense trepidation, sadness, and anxiety that has dominated the nation’s psyche.
Edward Adade, the PRM’s intermittent general secretary, made the announcement yesterday in Accra at a press conference to lay out the goals of the fledgling political organization. The event was covered by 1Family Radio.
Mr. Adade explained that the lion in the party’s logo symbolizes the strength needed to protect the nation from misuse and exploitation of public assets by people in positions of power.
The insignia, he continued, represents royalty, dignity, and reverence for Ghanaians and for the values of the country.
The slogan of the party is “Open Government for Real Development,” and its colors are black, red, and white.
Speaking about the country’s political condition, Mr. Adade said that recent changes in the political landscape and the resurgence of military coups in West Africa called for the creation of a new movement to give Ghanaians a new lease on life.
After 30 years of democratic experimentation, Mr. Adade claimed that Ghanaians had grown weary of the unrivaled levels of nepotism, economic instability, recklessness, waste of public funds, and poverty that jeopardized the strength of Ghana’s democracy.
The party’s leadership claimed that as a result, Ghanaians have been advocating for the emergence of a new political “movement for the restoration of hope for a better society of peace, openness, justice, and selflessness to promote real progress in Ghana.
Addressing the symbol of the party, he noted, “In conformity with established standards, our abbreviation is PRM, but we prefer to be known to the public by the acronym alternative, PEREMO.’’
He continued, “We believe that we shall gain nothing if we amass wealth through corruption, stealing, and dissipation of the nation’s wealth, but if we work in honesty and openness to protect the nation’s resources, it would benefit the people of Ghana.’’
The party’s secretary also said that they have an operating permit from the Electoral Commission that is provisional, allowing them to operate in the country.
“We already have our interim executive, so after we have officially announced our existence, we will unveil our executives,’’ he said.
