Acting Head of Policy and programmes, STARGhana Foundation, Teiko Sabah, has called on Ghanaians to “stand up and take their stance as Ghana gears up for general elections this year”.
She said by doing so, politicians will take them seriously. She noted that consensus building is the way forward and urged Ghanaians to put the country first and make it work.
Mrs. Sabah was moderating the ” WE THE PEOPLE ” television platform which discussed “the aborted Referendum to amend Article 55 (3) and lessons for Ghana’s local governance”.
“” We the People “” on GTV and GTV-News is a platform instituted by the Ghana Journalists Association, GJA with support from STAR-Ghana Foundation, as part of an 18-month project dubbed, “Enhanced Media-CSO Partnerships for Inclusive Local Governance”.
Under the project, the GJA built he capacity of Journalists who worked meticulously with CSOs to influence critical local governance policies and other developmental issues that directly affect women, youth, and persons with disability, children, and socially excluded persons in the communities.
Overall, the interventions contributed to enrich citizens’ access to quality information through structured media platforms and CSOs outlets.
