A political historian and lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Dr Samuel Adu-Gyamfi has said that the nature of our politics has not helped the progress of our democracy as a country.Ghana yesterday, January 7 celebrated 25 years of democracy under the 4th Republic.
Speaking to Agoo fm`s Eugene Akoto Bamfo on “Ene Nso Bio” morning show, Dr Adu-Gyamfi explained that people vote based on political, family and friendly relations therefore any wrong thing done by the leader is not questioned and brought to book.
According to him, due to poor knowledge and understanding people have about democracy, Ghana has not made much progress since it was ushered into the egalitarian era.
He added that we have had good leaders as a country, but their performances could not help us reach our democracy target; however, he hopes that we progress in understanding towards democracy to help build Ghana.
On his assessment of our governance system, he indicated that if Ghana is to be compared to the United States of America and other developed countries, then Ghana is left behind but nonetheless in Africa, our foundation in democracy for the past 25 years has been encouraging.
