Freelance investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni has said that even if the Government should provide free water for 4 years, that won’t influence his vote.
His comments are coming at the back of the Government’s decision to provide free water for the 3 months as a way of easing the pain associated with COVID-19.
Manasseh said he has other areas of priority which will influence his vote but not something as trivial as free water.
“My water bill is a fraction of what I spend on data every month. So if you provide free water for me for the four years, it will not influence my vote. I have my priority areas when it comes to good governance and what will inform my voting decision,” he said on social media.
“But it will be wrong on my part to assume that everyone is like me. So let’s allow those who will be swayed by the three-month free water to express their joy and their political loyalty. In the same way, let’s allow those who think this cannot undo whatever bad governance (real or perceived) that they have been subjected to under this government to express themselves.
To try to shut others up because they are not on the bandwagon of praise singing is wrong. It’s undemocratic. And it infringes on their right to free speech and free expression,” he explained.
