The "People''s Independent Movement" formed 11/28/2007
Koforidua, Nov. 28 GNA - A group of Ghanaian citizens, who are concerned with the way and manner politics is being handled in the country in relation to the well being of the ordinary people have formed a new civil society organization known as "The People''s Independent Movement" (PIM).

In a statement signed jointly by Nana Addo Aikins, Legal Practitioner and Civil and Human Rights Advocate, who is a Spokesman for the Movement and Mr Pita Osei-Baidoo, Interim National Secretary, said PIM was formed in response to a recent clarion call on aspiring independent candidates to unite in time and work for a radical social transformation.

"PIM is a collection of human rights activists, nationalists, concerned citizens, civil society activists and some ordinary people of Ghana, who find that the existing system of national development based on blind partisanship has divided and polarized the nation and are prepared to work for a radical and principled transformation of the system."

The statement said the Movement was a mass-based, non-party civil society organization, whose other objective was to help to awaken, reconcile and complete the political struggle began by past leading national heroes like Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah and Dr J.B. Danquah. It is a herald of a "New Age of Reason and a New Civilization", which represents the conscience and collective wisdom of the suffering masses, that shall again seek to work for the collective will of the poor, the needy and the downtrodden, the statement said. The statement said Parliamentary democracy was necessary for Ghana but as of now, it had become clear that the nation needed about eight years of non-partisan approach to politics to help to unite the nation for a national-based system of democratic governance. "Ghana, therefore, needs independent nationalists and patriots to strengthen its fragile democracy in response to the noble objectives of the PIM now."Source:
