The NCCE Municipal Director used the occasion to encourage Ghanaians to demand accountability from their elected leaders – hold them to their election promises.    

Mr. Oduro said the book provided useful insights into the contributions of past and present governments’ to the political and economic development of the nation.

He reminded the people that Ghana was “far bigger than any political party and that we should think of the nation first”.
