I’m not against Mahama but vote out his 'dis-effective' gov’t – Carl Wilson

A member of the National Democratic Congress, Mr Carl Wilson has initiated a campaign against the re-election bid of President John Dramani Mahama and the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Mr Wilson, who was Head of Port Security during the reign of late President John Evans Atta Mills has consequently announced the formation of a new political movement, with the name ‘Move Ghana’.

He has since Tuesday been speaking to a number of radio and television stations explaining the motive for his campaign.

Mr Wilson, a loyal NDC member became more popularly with the confiscation of vehicles under questionable circumstances during the reign of the late President J.E.A. Mills when he served as chairman of the Confiscated Vehicles Committee (CVC).

He was relieved of his post after a series of protests from NDC supporters over allegations of abuse of office.

For instance he told Metro TV‘s Good Evening Ghana programme on Tuesday that the movement “has nothing to do with being disgruntled, with being neglected.”

“It has nothing to do with being angry with any government or with this government. It has everything to do with my beliefs and what I think as a political scientist that Ghana needs and ought to do to turn the corner and then be a better place for us and for the generation that follows us,” he said.

“I am a Ghanaian first before a member of any political party and my actions and my movement and anything that I will come out with now, going forward, has to be seen as something that is good for this country. That is the way I will like it to be viewed.”

On Thursday morning he also told Montie FM that he was not against President Mahama as a person but he was in the campaign to solicit votes to oust his “dis-effective government.”

According to him he strongly believe that Ghana was not going the right direction and that it was not about changing the government; rather it was about changing the political system in the country and insisted that the time has come for Ghana to be governed by an independent president who is not aligned to any political party.
