Speaking to a section of Ghanaians living in London via the UK-based GMRADIO 106.0FM, popular educationist and counsellor, Mr. Daniel Fenyi has wildly opined that the kind of democracy practised here in Ghana is “china-made” and not original.
Mr. Daniel Fenyi furthered that “true” democracy is where ultimate power is invested in the citizens and institutions. These institutions are exclusively made independent bodies and does not suffer interferences from partisan politics.
The respected educationist said the kind of democracy in Ghana makes politicians too powerful. These politicians, some of whom don’t appear intelligent, take decisions which affect every sector of the country, from education, health, finance, agriculture, etc.
The Ghana-kind of democracy where ultimate power and authority are held by only politicians is what Mr. Daniel Fenyi refer to as “China-made” democracy.
Counsellor Daniel Fenyi has called on the leadership and all citizens to come on board and re-think about Democracy and customise it to fit our Ghanaian context.
