National Chairman of NDC - Kofi Portuphy

The Dean of Graduate Studies, Institute of Local Government Studies, Dr. Eric Oduro Osae has advised the National Democratic Congress [NDC] to raise issues related to the governance of the country with concrete evidence and also give alternative solutions to the holes they punch.

According to him, the press conference organized by the National Democratic Congress on Thursday, was a good move since a party in opposition does a service to the country when it keeps government on its toes. However, he said the National Democratic Congress should raise their concerns based on evidence with alternative solutions as well.

There have been growing concerns among the public over the proliferation of locally manufactured weapons in the country. This follows an announcement by the Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery that about 90% of weapons used in perpetuating crime in the country are locally made.

The revelation has whipped stakeholders’ interest to design mechanisms aimed at correcting the situation.

The Dean of Graduate Studies, Institute of Local Government Studies, Dr. Eric Oduro Osae has indicated that President Nana Akufo-Addo’s meeting with the press on Tuesday was bias as the accountability focused on the executive only.

According to him, in democratic governance, as practiced in Ghana, accountability should not only be demanded from the executive arm.

The University Teachers Association has described the court decision ordering the Vice Chancellor of the University of Education, Winneba and Finance Officer to step aside as an attack on academic freedom.

Speaking on Eyewitness News on Monday, President of UTAG, Dr. Harry Agbenu said they will resist such attacks.
