2012 Flagbearer of the Convention People’s Party Dr. Michael Abu Sakara says the current economic challenges the country is facing cannot be resolved until there is a change in the nation’s governance structure.
He is of the opinion that the most significant revelation from recent 22-point Senchi Consensus is that the nation has lost its way and needs to rediscover its vision for a shared national development path within a more inclusive system of governance.
It would be recalled the recent Senchi Economic Forum brought together representatives from across the various political divide, Civil Society Groups, academia among others to dialogue on how to deal with the challenges the nation is facing economically.
Dr. Sakara believes no amount of tweaking of the economy and its financial system can put the economy back on the right path without a political accommodation that works better than the "winner takes all" system of governance currently being practiced.
Dr. Sakara is convinced the neglect and corruption associated with the current system which is dominated by the National Democratic Congress and New Patriotic Party has deepened the impact of the economic quagmire Ghana finds itself in.
The former flagbearer in a statement issued in Accra backed calls from the Civic Forum Initiative, Institute of Democratic Governance (IDEG) and the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) for a temporary freeze on the ongoing constitutional review process, to permit an immediate national debate on a more appropriate system of governance for Ghana.
