The lead speaker at the third June 4 revolutionary lecture, Professor John Bright Kobla Aheto, has expressed disappointment over Ghana’s level of development.
He pointed this out while delivering a speech as a main speaker of the third revolutionary lecture series organised at the Amegashie Conference Hall of the University of Ghana Business School. The lecture was held under the theme: A Call to Developing a National Character for Sustainable Good Governance.
According to Prof. Aheto, Ghanaians are fond of relying on the occurrence of drastic situations in finding measures to curb problems which does not in any angle promote good governance of the state.
He said that this situation is as a result of the failure to learn lessons from the June 4th event as a country.
“I am looking at what happened at June 4th, what should have happened after June 4th. As a nation, we are supposed to have learn lessons but it does not look like we did and it does not look like we are even in the position to learn it unless something drastic happens for us to learn those lessons”.
The academic further outlined some essential features which when adopted can bring about good governance in the country.
“Good public governance in Ghana requires a number of important, essential and necessary conditions and characteristics and number one among them is integrity and honesty.
You can forget about honesty and let us focus on integrity alone. We don’t seem to understand that word in Ghana. We are so dishonest. If you can see it, you will feel ashamed of yourself and you will feel disheartened”.
