Ghanaians living in the United Kingdom have hailed the government’s second town hall meeting which took place over the weekend at the Dominion Centre in London.

The exercise is the second in the series of 2019 town hall meetings organised by the Ministry of Information.

Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia on Wednesday led the economic management team at the first town hall meeting in Ghana, which largely focused on progress made on the economy.

Hundreds of Ghanaians living in the United Kingdom participated in the second exercise led by a government delegation made up of the Majority leader and Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, Mr Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, Minister of Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, and Ghana’s High Commissioner to the UK, Papa Owusu-Ankomah, among others.

The Ghanaians who participated in the UK town hall meeting asked for the full implementation of the Representation of the Peoples Amendment Law (ROPAL) to enable them to participate in general elections.

They also asked for access to tap into emerging opportunities in the Ghanaian economy.

They praised the government’s trade facilitation reforms recently announced by the vice-president.

Some of the participants also urged the government to step up the fight against corruption by prosecuting those who have fallen foul of the law.

The town hall meetings are designed to bring the government closer to the people and parade state actors such as Ministers of State, MMDCEs and heads of agencies to give an account to the people, who also have an opportunity to ask questions and make contributions toward the governance of the country.
