An armed robber’s vote is as important as a bishop’s – Sammi Awuku

Director-General of the National Lottery Authority (NLA) and a prominent member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammi Awuku, has offered eminent remarks in regards to the creation of ideological groups in Ghana.

Speaking on Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo', Awuku focused on that ideological groups draw in people from different foundations, incorporating those engaged with illegal exercises. He underscored the meaning of each and every vote, whether or not it comes from a strict pioneer or a lawbreaker. "The vote of a priest is one and the vote of a furnished burglar is one. So for what reason would it be advisable for me to imagine that I am just lobbying for Priests and Imams?" he expressed during a meeting on Peace FM's morning show, Kokrokoo.

Awuku recognized that political missions focus on a wide crowd, including people from underestimated networks, for example, "ghettos." Besides, he featured the significance of understanding and supporting people who might have participated in criminal operations, proposing that their conditions could have driven them to such activities. Awuku highlighted the job of ideological groups in offering open doors for reclamation and restoration. "You mission to awful young men, there are 'small' young men in there, the 'powder' young men are there, and etcetera.

Thus in the wake of doing all your crusading to get the votes, it isn't my obligation to proceed to report that when I went to this individual, they said they will decide in favor of me, however he is an outfitted burglar. Maybe I should guide him to find a new line of work. Perhaps conditions drove them into it," he noted.

Ideological groups, as per Awuku, are a blend of "good and terrible individuals" with various ways of behaving and inspirations, adding that not all party individuals are academicians however incorporate " the people who are reasonable, the individuals who do awful things, and we have the individuals who will acknowledge help to turn out to be better."
