Professor at the University of Illinois, Chicago, Osei K. Darkwa, has mounted a strong defence that there is no single ethnic group in Ghana that can capture political power without the support from other ethnic groups.
A 3-page research findings put together by the University of Illinois visiting Professor revealed that all groups in the Eastern Region need to work together for mutual development. His latest revelation comes at the period Ghana has 59 days to the 2020 crucial presidential and parliamentary polls. 17 political parties and independent presidential candidates have already filed nominations at the Electoral Commission of Ghana to contest for the presidency amid vigorous electioneering campaigns.
According to Prof. Osei K. Darkwa, “there is the need for unity among all groups in the country to ensure long lasting stability and national cohesion, and that political gamesmanship in the country should focus more on inclusion with diversity, which matters most rather than exclusion with any semblance of dominance, since in the final analysis inclusion with diversity wins”.
