According to organisers of the 3 days, Christian Forum is will afford some dedicated Christian professionals the opportunity to evaluate the performance of the three arms of government and the Church in promoting and consolidating good governance for accelerated national development.
“At a time when the nation’s economy is crawling, the cost of living is rising, and the poverty gap is widening, the 3rd National Christian Forum – NCF2022 accepts the challenge and responsibility to lead a discussion on reviewing the quality of Governance we have experienced, identify the gaps and distill God-inspired strategies, solutions and innovations to move the country forward.” The organisers explained in a statement issued today, Thursday, August 17, 2022.
This annual event organized by the Christian pressure movement – Advocates for Christ Ghana (A4CG) provides thought leadership space for the Christian community including professionals, ministers, and activists to contribute to national policies and to own the agenda for progress.
This year’s forum the statement said will take an in-depth look at the impact of the 3 arms of government – Legislature, Judiciary, and Executive on Ghana’s development over 65 years of nationhood. The church’s role will equally be analyzed. It added.
According to the organisers, this year’s theme presents a unique opportunity for a collective introspection on Ghana’s journey since independence and what key stakeholders have contributed.
“Though Ghana is celebrated globally for its democratic credentials and provides exemplary political leadership in the West African sub-region, many Ghanaians are dissatisfied with the quality of governance and believe it can be better than what has been experienced.
“The high levels of reported corruption and waste of public resources, despite the fact that all the organs of Government are supposed to be functioning and apparently fulfilling their constitutional mandates, raises serious questions. NCF 2022 will look at what has worked. What has not worked? What can we do better moving forward as a nation and especially as Christians.” The statement alluded.
