The perceived or real excesses of Ghana’s political management may be nicely appreciated and contextualized if a system of validity is advanced to guide their actions, says the Director of Intelligence, Tema Port.
Sheik Labaran Salifu Barry insists that Governments are tempted to take unilateral decisions due to the fact, as a country, we have not developed a State Craft that publications the movements of political leaders, consequently their potential to take decisions that citizens may see as unpopular and incorrect.
He made this regarded on Tuesday, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in family members to the controversy at the findings of the Emile Short Commission that inquired into the Ayawaso West Wougon by way of election associated violence.
“The cause why we have demanding situations with governance fashion in Ghana is due to the fact we don’t have a country craft we are able to depend upon to determine problems of country wide significance; our approach towards politics, our technique closer to economics, which technique for use, etc. So we don’t have any laid down popular that Governments should comply with. So why do you blame the President if he’s taking unilateral choices,” Sheik Barry requested.
Sheik Barry, who is additionally a maritime expert and an educational, found that it changed into sensible to use standards associated validity which turned into a machine of guidelines and a systematic description of any step Government took.
“Whatever selection that you make you have to ensure you’re following the steps toward the implementation of that decision. So it method the President cannot take a choice without conforming to requirements, “
Sheik Barry determined that Ghana did now not have any criteria to govern the actions of Governments after sixty years of nationhood to the volume that even Commissions of Enquiries set by Presidents don’t have any guiding concepts, however the rules keep converting.
“The guiding standards should decide who need to chair a Commission, have to the chair come from the Ruling Party or Opposition; what sort of humans must represent that Commission and how they must present their record; is it to Parliament, or the President; ought to the President bring the file out, etc.?” Sheik Labaran stated.
He introduced that, “So if there’s a device or criteria this is the best time you could say that the selection of the President to set apart the record of the Emile Short Commission become a awful one, because he refused to conform to the standards, however this is a scenario wherein we don’t have a standards.”
Sheik Barry indicated that everybody had a perception about how the machine have to work, “That’s why a few are capitalist and some socialists. But the most essential factor is the way to achieve stability and order of the machine, economic order, political order, and many others.”
The Cleric informed that once leaders had been elected, they take the electricity to exhibit leadership, and that was why the President may want to decide whether or not his actions have been calculated to shield the public by means of withholding facts he deemed should create instability.
Sheik Barry defined that, “The moves of the President to set the file aside relied on his ideals and assumptions or his leadership fashion as President. The Opposition sees it as wrong even as the ruling party feels the President is right, which makes it political.”
He insisted that the entirety would be clean while Ghanaians see things academically—that leaders should govern the usage of a hierarchical system, this means that they might take unilateral decisions, or by using a topic to subject dating, that each choice government took must come to parliament for a debate, consequently the want to come out with a standards that would insist on what become to be achieved at all times.
