Beyond Successful Elections: An Evaluation Of Ghana’s “Shiny” Democracy TRAILER

Compared to the records of some of its neighbors,
Ghanaian democracy is indeed a strong performer. Yet, key challenges remain: endemic corruption,
high unemployment, and weak social services are eroding trust in the system. I mean I’ve done this for eight years, so
I’ve seen my country for what it is, a struggling democracy with huge, huge governance challenges. I think at the end of the day what I’m asking
is if democracy is about governments of the people, by the people, for the people, then
these things should not be happening in my country. Across Africa, I suppose this applies for
anywhere in the world, we need to raise the standard for democracy. This is not the Ghana of the 1990s even, things
have changed. It’s just that things have changed for a certain
group of people and I want more people to benefit.
