Decentralise SONA-NDC Executive Urges Gov’t

By: Tabitha Kugbonu | Voltaonlinegh.com |

The Central Tongu Constituency Communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Cartious Enyonyoge Kojoga Aziedu has called for decentralisation of the annual State of the Nation Address (SONA).

Mr. Aziedu asked the current government to make a policy that enjoins regional ministers as well as the metropolitan, municipal and district chief executives (MMDCEs) to replicate the annual event to the citizenry in their respective jurisdictions on the successes chalked and challenges faced in their term of office.

The NDC Communications Officer who was speaking on Sogakope-based Radio Tongu’s morning show on Monday and monitored by Voltaonlinegh.com, said if the government of Ghana was able to make a policy that decentralises SONA to the regional, metropolitan, municipal and district levels, it would enhance transparency and good governance at the local levels and afford citizens to understand exactly what their leaders are doing.

He added that such a platform could be used to explain the real problems facing the districts or regions and how the solutions to the problems are prioritised.

His comments came barely hours for the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to deliver his third SONA in Parliament to Ghanaians on Thursday.

Mr. Aziedu said such a policy will give the Volta Regional Minister, Dr. Archibald Letsa for example, an opportunity to brief citizens on the security situation as well as other important issues in the region while the South Tongu DCE, Emmanuel Louis Agama will also make use of such a platform to explain to citizens of the district, the puzzle surrounding issues including management of premix fuel in the area.
