The Head of Finance Department of the University of Cape Coast, Prof. John Gatsi has said accountability should not be left to be willing given by duty bearers but must be demanded by the people leaders represent.
Speaking at the third June 4 Lecture Series at the Unversity of Ghana, Prof. John Gatsi bemoans the situation where accountability has been left to sole prerogative of the leaders.
According to him, the state of governance in the country now is worrying as many projects that have been initiated by successive governments with borrowed sums of money are being left to go waste with the leaders leading justifying the reasons for abandoning of those projects that are to benefit the ordinary people of Ghana.
For him, it is high time Ghana has a National Contract and Project Register backed by legislative instruments (LI) which will demand that successive governments justify why they must not continue a particular project.
That he said must be an integral part of good governance.
The June 4th Third Lecture Series is one of the activities marking the 40th anniversary of the uprising which kicked off on Saturday with a tree-planting exercise on the Tetteh-Quarshie – Legon road.
The celebrations will be climaxed on Tuesday, June 4, 2019, when Flt Lt Rawlings and other leading members of the uprising and the 31st December Revolution, address a durbar at the Nungua Traditional Authority Park.
