Legal practitioner, Lawyer Martin Luther Kpebu has urged Ghanaian youth to reject any money from politicians in a form of vote buying for the coming 2024 general elections.

He said politics in Ghana is a business avenue for the politicians to invest and make profit so the youth should be bold to tell the politicians to use that money to create jobs and employ them to reduce the high rate of unemployment in the country.

In multiple tweets, Lawyer Martin Kpebu bemoaned how citizens sell their power (vote) and future for money during and after campaigns to these politicians.

“I see our youths being induced by politicians to vote for them. Please I want to plead with the youths to refuse any money they give them to buy their vote, coming 2024 general election. Let us be bold and tell them to use that money to create jobs and employ them.” He tweeted.

“Politics in Ghana is a business avenue for the politicians to invest and make profit. However, we can’t shift all the blames on the politicians because citizens sell their power (vote) and future for money during and after campaign to these politicians. So we can not fully hold them accountable because we have sold our future to give them power.” Part of the tweet read.

The renowned Lawyer believes the money shared in Assin North during the by-election by these politicians to buy their votes could be used to create jobs for the residents of Assin North.

“I believe the money shared in Assin North during the by-election by both parties (NPP & NDC) to voters can create jobs there and employ the indigenes.”

Commenting on the news of the Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources, Cecilia Dapaah, being robbed of over US$1 million, €300,000, and millions of Ghana Cedis in cash from her home, Martin Kpebu said, the amount of money stolen from the Minister can help sanitize the City and also create jobs for the youths to reduce unemployment.

“Patience Botwe and Sarah Agyei, who are house-helps to Cecilia Dapaah, the Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources, are facing charges in court for allegedly stealing $1m, €300k from the Minister’s house. I think the laws of this country should be fair to them all, flooding in the City of Ghana whenever it rains. The amount of money stolen from the Minister can help sanitize the City and also create jobs for the youths to reduce unemployment.” He added.
