SPEECH BY DR. PAPA KWESI NDUOM ON A NEW PROGRESSIVE POLITICAL MOVEMENT FOR THE 2012 ELECTIONS – DECEMBER 28, 2011
Ladies and Gentlemen:
Thank you for honouring our invitation to participate in this event which we believe will chart a very different and positive course in the political environment of our dear country, Ghana. As you very well know, I do not engage in politics of insults, acts of violence or disrespectful behaviour. I believe that public service is an honourable duty that should be performed with passion and vim. I believe in politics that presents ideas and solutions to the problems that confront us as a nation for consideration and implementation.
I am here this morning to declare my resolve to work with like-minded men and women from all over the country, to form a very focused, vibrant, independent-minded and progressive Political Movement to contest the 2012 Presidential and Parliamentary elections.

It will be difficult, we know, but we are prepared to do everything possible to give Ghanaians an alternative that is progressive and different in a very positive way. Continue Reading
