Yesterday, March 29, 2021 the Chief Technical Advisor of the University of Ghana School of Law’s Democratic Vigilance Project, Oliver Mawuse Barker-Vormawor, asserted in a Facebook post that Ghanaians are cavalier towards the chronic challenges that confront the nation.
“Nobody is trying to fix the problems we have in this country. Everyone is trying to make enough money so the problems don’t apply to them anymore”, he said.
The outspoken law professor, Kwaku Azar agreed with Oliver Mawuse Barker-Vormawor's statement and stated that it won’t be easy for Ghanaians to escape these inveterate challenges.
However, the Executive Director of Center for Democratic Development Ghana (CDD-Ghana), Professor Henry Kwasi Prempeh also argued that the people in authority are capitalising on state resources and power to solve their personal needs rather than fixing the general problems.
He wrote that
“Those entrusted with authority to lead the way are themselves using the privilege of their public office to find and fund their private solutions to the public problems”
Moreover, the President of IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe asked Oliver Mawuse Barker-Vormawor that,
“What are you doing about it?”
