It sounds unbelievable to a generation of Ghanaians who have grown up in an era of tilapia - JFK

The General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party, Lawyer Justin Frimpong Kodua, has stated that the blessings of democracy through which Ghana have freedom of speech, multiparty Democracy were birth through the tradition of the NPP.

According to Lawyer Justin Frimpong Kodua, this may sound completely unbelievable to crop of people that grew up in recent years of tilapia, cartoons and computer age.

He recounted years back when there was no freedom of speech, press freedom and multiparty system in Ghana. He emphasized that the toil of generals of the New Patriotic Party, though some of them are late, made what we have today possible.

Lawyer Justin Frimpong Kodua said "Today, it all sound almost unbelievable to a generation of Ghanaians who have grown up in an era of tilapia, cartoon and atmosphere of multiparty democracy and freedom of speech. Today, there are Ghanaians who take the open abuse of a President of the Republic as normal and regular phenomenon."

Lawyer Justin Frimpong Kodua also emphasized that some of the things that look so common today, like going for demonstrations, strikes were not common things until the NPP stood for them. He said" Today, demonstrations are things we take for granted, just as private radio stations and free air press. We in the NPP can say without any fear of contradiction that the Danquah-Busia-Bobo tradition made this state of affairs possible."

He said"We the current adherents are extremely proud of the tradition to which will a claim and they rolled out the New Patriotic Party and its antecedents have played in making the rule of law, multi-party democracy, respect for individual liberty and the pursuit of a liberal economy the distinguishing factors of political and economic landscape of Ghana."
