Kwaku Azar in a Facebook post has written that:
"Politicians have misled and lured some of their followers into believing that public service is the same as party service. The two are very different. Thus, it is time to do a better job of explaining that public service is a public trust, requiring the public servant, even if he is a political appointee, to place loyalty to the Constitution, the laws, and ethical principles above party interest.
The PSC, NCCE and other civil society organizations should, through lectures, workshops, etc. explain to the people that public servants, even if politically appointed, are under an obligation to act impartially and to not give preferential treatment to any party people.
It must be taught in our schools, from BECE to Bachelors, that the law binds all public servants, including political appointees, to provide equal opportunities for all Ghanafuo regardless of their political affiliation. It is absurd, perverse and a corruption of our politics for party people to feel entitled to troop to state owned enterprises to seek funds, as if these public enterprises are financiers.
Instead of us to do the rational thing of uniting to build a country that works for everyone, we have become obsessed with this irrational thing of creating a disunited country where one has to be seen as a party member, construed as self-appointed most loyal partyfuo, to even feel free to breathe.
And for what? GOGO will pass laws that prohibit public officers, with the exception of elected officials, from openly engaging in political activities. Unfortunately that will mean people will have to choose between being party advocates or working as appointed public officers. Many of my friends will suffer but so be it.
Ghana is too politicized for no good reason and to harmful effect. The season for depoliticizing is upon us. #SALL is the cardinal sin of the 8th Parliament." he wrote.
This post is clearly a direct response to the media banter between Kenny Agyapong and the NIA Boss, Prof. Attafuah over who must be employed at the NIA.
