If Selorm votes for NDC in Kpando, he’s voting on tribal lines but if Agyeman votes NPP at Kwadaso he’s voting on issues.
The elections are over but have left in its wake some serious and quite sentimental issues. I would not have commented on it because I think I have out grown and gotten immune to it but I think it has become imperative for me to share my opinion on it.
After the results started trickling in till the declaration by the EC, Voltarians (ayigbefoo) and zongo communities (ntafoo) have received a lot flaking and have been described by very wild and all manner of unpalatable words because of their voting patterns. So I want to ask….there’s everything right and not tribal for Bantama to vote 50k+ for the NPP but there’s everything wrong for Ketu South to vote same numbers for NDC and it is tribalistic in highest order. Why do we behave as if a particular group of people or tribe’s thinking is superior to the other? Admittedly there is tribalism in our politics and voting patterns and if that is a crime then I believe Ashantis and Ewes and other tribes are equally guilty. If we can have such condescending opinion of ourselves why the heck should we have beef if another race thinks of us as an inferior race?
