Call For National Integration And Change Of Winner Takes All Phenomenon

The Omanhene of Asokore Nana Susubribi Krobea Asante says in order for the country to solve ethnic and political conflicts, there must be national integration and the complete change of the “Winner Takes All” phenomenon.

He said if every citizen is assured of an equal share of the national cake and made an integral part of governance, internal wrangling will cease.

Nana Susubribi Krobea Asante was speaking on GTV’s Election Platform on Thursday on the topic: “Perspective of Traditional Rulers Towards Peaceful Elections”.

The Paramount Chief of Likpe Traditional Area, Nana Soglo Allo, added that the improvement of democracy and development of the nation begins from the politician’s belief in the system of governance.

He said change in government and the various agenda does not help stabilize democracy in the country.

On the controversy surrounding the creation of the new constituencies, Nana Susubribi Krobea Asante said such a controversy could have been avoided if a special committee was set up to look at it.

He therefore suggested that such a mechanism be put in place to scrutinize all constitutionally controversial issues.
