In a nation striving for progress and development, the role of civil society groups cannot be understated.
United Voice For Change, a non-political pressure group, has emerged as a beacon of hope and accountability in Ghana’s political landscape.
With a mission to hold the government accountable and promote national development, this group is poised to make a lasting impact.
The Convenor of United Voice For Change, Mr. Antwi Sylvestin Ronald, emphasized the vital role of the government in shaping the country’s policies and direction.
Speaking at a press conference in Kumasi, he outlined the group’s vision to address the pressing issues within Ghana’s political and educational spheres.
“Our commitment is to become a key stakeholder in the matters that reflects a dedication to the betterment of this nation. That is one of our group’s core principles is collaboration,” he said.
Mr. Ronald expressed their intention to work hand-in-hand with the government, political parties, faith-based organizations, the media, and all stakeholders.
“ Our approach is to demonstrate our understanding that meaningful change requires collective effort and cooperation.
“Our commitment to working alongside the government and other stakeholders bodes well for Ghana’s future,” he said.
Dr. Joseph Ayensu, a Senior Lecturer in Finance and Economics at Kumasi Technical University (KsTU), underscored the importance of research in national development.
He rightly pointed out that Ghana’s abundant natural resources alone are insufficient to propel the nation forward.
“Investment in research and innovation is crucial, mirroring the strategies of developed nations,” he stressed.
United Voice For Change is gaining momentum, and their message is resonating with Ghanaians from all walks of life.
Meanwhile, Mr. Manaf, the Ashanti Regional Organizer for the group, urged citizens, irrespective of their political affiliations, to join the movement.
Their “Ghana First” agenda encapsulates the spirit of unity and shared responsibility for the nation’s progress.
He lamented that, “In a time when voices of accountability are needed more than ever, United Voice For Change emerges as a promising force.”
As the group embark on this journey to put the government on its toes, the nation watches with anticipation, hopeful for a brighter and more prosperous Ghana.
