Ghanaian politicians are only interested in using their office to enrich themselves at the expense of the poor, according to Prof. Stephen Adei.

The ex-Rector of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) noted that because politicians see power as an avenue to amass wealth, elections have become “a do-or-die business” in Ghana.

He said the development is dangerous and affects national development.

Prof. Adei said: “Our politicians have made elections a do-or-die business because many see it as an avenue to rise from rags to riches.”

Delivering a lecture on the topic: “Relevance of Public Service Broadcasting in Contemporary Ghana”, he predicted the upcoming 2016 election is “going to be a challenging” one.

According to him, campaigning for public office has “deteriorated” and that has affected “the quality of campaign messages.”

“Of course, we all know how money is playing more role in our political life and worse of all the fourth year of the four-year term there is economic mismanagement which we spend about two years to undo – it’s a cycle - so we don’t go forward as a country,” Prof. Adei said at the lecture to mark Ghana Broadcasting Corporation’s 80th anniversary.

He added: Politicians are taking us for a ride. The elections must be issues-based and not sloganeering.”
