The founder and leader of the National Democratic Party (NDP), Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings, has described the current energy crisis as the least of the country’s problems.
She said there are fundamental problems confronting the country which need to be dealt with to facilitate development.
Nana Konadu noted that the country needs to set a clear code on morality, transparency, probity and accountability for its leaders to champion the well-being of the people.
The former first lady was speaking at the NDP Community Organisation Bureau Network of Ghana forum on the theme: ‘Inseparability of leadership and the people, a necessary condition for national well-being,’ in Koforidua, the Eastern Regional capital.
Mrs Rawlings said the goal of creating a Community Organisation Bureau (COB) at all polling stations is to create the leadership tool to operationalise all the means of decentralised and participatory democracy.
She said the COBs would serve as adequate forums for national discourse to tap into the potentials of the people in areas of agriculture, education, health and entrepreneurship.
Mr Owusu Bempah, Director of Communication of NDP, said the forum seeks to educate the people on their civic rights and responsibilities for them to understand the governance system to make the right decisions in election 2016.
He said through the forums and other activities, the people would come to a realisation that the NDP is the best alternative to champion good governance in the country.
