Speaker of Parliament, Prof. Aaron Mike Oquaye will today, Monday, 14 January 2019 open the 70th Annual New Year School and Conference at the University of Ghana on the theme: “Building Strong Institutions for Democratic Consolidation in Ghana”.

The conference is being organised by the School of Continuing and Distance Education of the College of Education, University of Ghana, in collaboration with the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development.

Resolutions from the School are presented to the relevant government and parastatal agencies, and these have over the years played a key role in policy formulation.

Legislative Powers and Strong Oversight: Dealing with Corruption and Consolidating Democracy

Twenty-five years of Decentralisation: Challenges and Prospects
