Mr Joseph Akintola Amankwaah popularly known as AKINTOLA, former assemblyman for the Mpasaso Number Two in the Ahafo-Ano South district in the Ashanti Region, has said that the government effort on referendum which seeks to give power to the people to decide on MMDCE’s by voting YES/ NO on 17th December, 2019 to help the process is imperative to enhance the country's democracy.

Speaking with Media at his Abuakwa base, outspoken AKINTOLA said his 77 years old on this Earth have not seen this great work by the government intended to expand democratic right to Ghanaians.

He urged Ghanaians to praise the government and avoid detraction from NDC party throwing dust into people's eye…

'' The NPP vision for Ghana is the most formidable preposition to develop our country''

”Life is dynamic and always changing but sometimes we [Ghanaians] are always adamant and this attitude hinders our democratic dispensation'' SilverFM reports

''Globally, developed countries have attained such status because of understanding so we should allow political parties to be involved in local elections''

The Media asked Hon. AKINTOLA , who is also a farmer, about the $600 million loan secured by the government to support COCOBOD to increase production.

He commended the government for the injection but reprimanded the NDCs stance saying '' they are evil and do not want any good thing for Ghana''

''Ghanaians should always encourage or promote a good course but we should be mindful that the NDC has always been a hinderance to our country's progress''

Hon Joseph Amankwaah (AKINTOLA) is a founding Member of N.P.P. and a former Chairman of Atwima Nwabiagya Constituency of N.P.P.

A constitutional referendum will be held in Ghana on 17 December 2019, alongside district level elections.The proposed amendments to the constitution would allow for the direct election of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) and allow political parties to be involved in local elections.

The direct election of MMDCEs was a campaign promise of successful presidential candidate Nana Akufo-Addo in the 2016 general elections.[3]

The proposed changes would involve amending article 243(1), which provides for the appointment of MMDCEs by the president, and article 55(3), which bans political party activity in district-level elections.

As article 55 is an entrenched clause, the referendum requires a turnout of at least 40% and over 75% of those voting to vote in favour for the proposal to be passed.
