Nana Konadu calls for transparency

Accra, March 16, GNA – Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings, the Leader of the National Democratic Party (NDP), has called for transparency, probity and accountability in the country to ensure that the economy provides meaningful prospects for graduates.

She said instead of transparency, probity and accountability, what prevailed in the country were corruption, graft, looting and wanton dissipation of public funds.

She was addressing students of the Methodist University College, Ghana, in Accra, during their ‘Political Week’ on the theme: ‘The economy and the prospects of the University graduate’.

Mrs Rawlings said Ghana’s constitution made provisions to safeguard the collective rights, freedoms and opportunities of all.

The former First Lady stated that there was also the need for open governance and participatory democracy, if the economy was to provide meaningful prospects for young people.

She therefore pledged the NDP’s readiness and commitment to open and participatory governance through decentralization, should it win power in 2016.

‘The NDP therefore envisages the creation of community organisation bureaus as appropriate extension of leadership,’ she stated. GNA
