"We Cannot Look At Every Problem From The Standpoint Of Political Capital"- Manasseh Azure Awuni

An investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni has told politicians that they cannot look at every problem from the standpoint of political capital after he has received some "usual insults" from politicians when he was commenting on the fight against Galamsey issue in the country.

The known and famous journalist has stated that people are looking at everything that is been said in the country as politics which will not help the nation as Ghana is gradually developing from one state to another.

Manasseh Azure Awuni posted a video which captured politicians in last year's election telling Ghanaians ( Galamsey men and women) to vote for former President, John Dramani Mahama to bring back Galamsey work for them which the government is trying to stop currently for it is destroying the water bodies.

For some few days now the Ministry of Information and Ministry of Land and Natural Resources has shared a picture of the water bodies in the illegal mining areas which has caused a lot of fear and panic in the public.

Manasseh Azure Awuni who is not happy with the "usual insults" from politicians has stated that, the young people who are defending their political parties should begin to think about the future of Ghana as he has received some insults from the young people defending a certain political party per his post.

He said and questioned that "in my previous post, some people have decended with the usual insults. Who are these people in the video?"

With much pain on how politicians used to attacks Manasseh Azure Awuni, he said that "we cannot look at every problem from the standpoint of political capital. It's not an NDC or NPP problem. It's threatening our survival and we must join hands to deal with it".

He advised the young politicians to stop attacking him by saying that "the young people who are defending their parties should begin to think about the future of this nation. Our water supply is already threatened. What next?"
