Delasi Justice Havi, National President of the Ghana First Crusaders Movement has cautioned the ruling government to make decisions that reflect the choices of Ghanaians.
According to him, leaders of the current administration have for long served their interest rather than the interest of Ghanaians they are obliged to serve.
In another insightful episode of e.tv Ghana’s Campus Dialogue Series with Sefah Danquah as host, Justice Havi reiterated that the existence of political parties and leadership is to serve as a representation of the masses than satisfy their self-interest.
“When we talk about governance and political leadership, it is the trust and confidence of the people that has been wielded and put together into the hands of few. Let us know that political parties are just one of those vehicles that propel development of a nation and so when you find a political position and by virtue of the fact that the people have their powers and mandate to you, it is just imperative and reasonable enough that whatsoever decision you’re taking, you’ll consider how negative and positive it will affect the people who gave you power. Let your decisions reflect the choice of the people,” he shared.
The Youth Activist further bemoaned the country’s practice of democracy as a governance principle despite being touted as one of the best Democratic countries in the world.
“So you don’t just get up one day and do things as you feel. When we talk about Democracy, the Democracy that we’ve been celebrating and if you care to know Ghana has been mentioned across the international front as one of the best democratic countries but how have we carried this concept of democracy. It is the rule of law and not the rule of self-conviction.”
Justice Havi’s outcry comes at the back of the recent controversies and revelations discovered on the construction of the National Cathedral. He believes that the backlash from the public is enough proof to halt the construction of the project.
