Gov’t holds G4P forum in Accra today

As part of the government of Ghana initiatives to interact with Ghanaians, the Ministry of Communications will today Thursday 18th December, 2014 hold a public forum dubbed ‘Government for the people (G4P) Forum’ in Accra.

The forum which will take place at the Accra International Conference Centre will afford Ministers of State an opportunity to brief Ghanaians on how President Mahama has executed the mandate entrusted to him.

A statement signed by the Minister for Communications, Dr. Edward Omane Boamah said the occasion will also provide an opportunity for interaction through Questions and Answers as Ghanaians will be given the chance to ask questions.
Sector ministers are expected to grace the occasion and provide answers to expected questions at the forum.
The forum has been promised to address all the lingering questions over the governance strategy of President Mahama and how it would translate directly to the well-being of the general public.

The initiative is also expected to combat corruption because it is designed to allow whistle-blowers to inform government officials about injustices happening in their environment first hand through formal and informal interactions before during and after the forum.
The Government for the People (G4P) Forum started in October, this year and already been held in Upper East, Upper West, Kumasi and some other selected venues across the country.
