An independent candidate is likely to contest for Ghana’s next general election in 2020.
Marricke Kofi Gane, describing himself as “a son of the land”, declared his intention Thursday to run for president of Ghana as an independent presidential candidate in a Facebook post.
“I am here to put Ghana first because Ghana deserves better! Because you deserve better! Because we deserve better,” he said in a four-minute video posted on the social media network.
“Our generation is a bridge – the only remaining bridge between the truncated dreams of our forebears and the eager hopes of posterity unborn. We have no choice but to disrupt every faulty status quo and make Ghana work for all of us. It is a grave burden that will demand more from all of us collectively. God has indeed blessed our homeland Ghana. It is we, who must now make her Great and Strong,” the audit and consultancy manager said.
