"Our Democracy Has Come A Long Way Yet It Remains Fragile" - Prof. Jane Opoku-Agyemang

Running mate of the largest opposition party, National Democratic Congress (NDC), Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang has revealed that although the country's democracy has come a long way, it still remains fragile.

According to her, she is calling on the populace to exercise their civic duties against any obstacles and machinations.

Speaking at the outdooring of the John and Jane campaign in Accra, Prof. Opoku-Agyemang said "Our democracy has come a long way. Yet it remains fragile. It calls on all of us to exercise our civic duty against any obstacles and machinations. I urge each of us to show up and participate in the ongoing voter registration exercise, but please observe all the necessary health protocols. Please look out for each other"

She further tasked the citizenry to mandatorily use their face masks and kind-heartedly offer some of their hand sanitizer(s) to others in need.

"If you see a disabled person or an elderly person or pregnant woman, offer help, for that is the Ghanaian spirit" she added.

She said "I extend a hand to everyone, no matter how disappointed you have become; no matter the depth of your frustration, your anger, your despair. Come! Let’s chart a path for our country built on the values of integrity, merit, trust, responsible citizenship, caring, putting others first and simple polite language"

Prof. charged Ghanaians to come together to re-build institutions likewise an inclusive nation that is not afraid to respect views from opponents.

She said "A country confident enough to accept other ways of seeing; of respecting everyone, regardless"
