The Atta-Mills Institute has expressed joy in Ghana’s current state of democracy.
A statement issued by the Institute noted with joy the election of Alban Bagbin as Speaker of Ghana’s 8th Parliament and Mr. E.T Mensa as the Greater Accra Regional representative on the Council of State.
Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Koku Anyidoho, who signed the statement, underscored the need for consensus-building since it was the best way forward for us to build the Better Ghana that we all desire and deserve
He noted that Ghanaians to ”…strive to put, morality, at the heart of our governance and nation-building processes; and there is no way, God, shall not bless our Homeland Ghana and make our nation great and strong”.
He said for the first time in our political history, we have an Executive form of government that will not interfere with the work of Parliament.
He said Ghanaians should be proud that we have a system like what we see today.
”As it is now; for the first time in our Newest political dispensation in Ghana, we have an, Executive Wing of Government, that does not have its “way” in Parliament, and we congratulate ourselves for making it possible for, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, to become the Speaker of Parliament.”
He further posited that the winner takes all politics must fade away for a National Agenda to take center stage, and also, hubris must not be given a place of virtue.
Meanwhile, he has added that: ”It was also most heartening listening to an NDC lawyer, Honourable Dr. Dominic Ayine, openly thank and eulogise an NPP lawyer, Mr. Frank Davis, for being the mastermind behind the apology that the former Deputy Attorney General rendered to the revered learned Justices of the Supreme Court over some unacceptable description of the Justices.”
