By Dr Alphonsus St Rose
“We denounce any attempts to weaponize your vote against you simply for expressing your constitutional right of free choice. This is not who we are, and we deserve better.
- Vote for a change of the policies that do not make you a priority in your country;
- Vote for a change of the policies that are designed to keep you poor and unequal;
- Vote for a change of the policies designed to outsource your future;
- Vote for a change of the policies that offers your national assets to anyone as gifts or handouts in which you are neither a shareholder, partner nor accrue interest.
“We will walk this journey together and present to the people of this country, the compelling example of an alternative paradigm for transparency, accountability, good governance, and democracy. This bottom-up approach for progress is different, if only to send a powerful message, that, this is your time, it is the people’s time.”
