Honorary Fellow of Solidaire Governance Forum, Professor Emmanuel Bobobee has assured Ghanaians that the approach of the civil society organisation (CSO) will be fair, authentic and adversarial towards building a better Ghana.
Prof. Bobobee made this known Tuesday during the official launch of Solidaire Governance Forum (Solidaire Ghana) at Erata Hotel at East Legon, Accra.
Delivering the speech to launch the CSO, Prof. Bobobee who is also the 2020 Running Mate for the CPP stated that they will show solidarity with the masses whose concerns are not being tackled by the authorities.
He indicated Solidaire Ghana would not work like other CSOs but through engagements with the Ghanaian people through various fora and other platforms that will help proffer solutions to the Ghanaian challenges.
“Our nation Ghana will benefit immensely,” he stated while encouraging other fellows of Solidaire Ghana to make good use of the human resources available to the group.
He also disclosed that the Forum will soon begin series of lectures that will focus on various pertinent issues confronting Ghanaians and also influence public discourses to shape the country.
Professor Bobobee also urged various arms of government to take up the concerns of the electorates and act on them to win their confidence.
For instance, Prof. Bobobee said the situation in Guinea and Mali where governments have been toppled was as a result of the lack of commitment on the part of the governments to tackle the challenges confronting the youth.
He said Mamady Dambouya, the leader of the special forces that ousted the government of Alpha Condé, is being praised by Guineans for the coup d’etat early this year because their demands were ignored by the government.
Prof Bobobee said they are celebrating an end to an era of dark days where loss of opportunities, lack of social intervention policies were the order of the day.
“Cut on your expenditure to provide social intervention for the youth,” he urged the government while reiterating that it was for the collective good of the country that Solidaire seeks to champion.
He said social protection is a human right and the government ought to prioritize it at all cost.
