Issues related to inclusive government over the years had been the subject for a heated debate on the lips of many Ghanaians as why there is the need to throw away what had been termed as the winner takes all political affair from the shores of Ghana’s political atmosphere.
Governance is inclusive when it effectively serves and involves every capable Tom, Dick and Harry; takes into account gender and other facets of personal identity; and when institutions, policies, processes, and services are accessible, accountable and responsive to all members of the country
Various proponents and political activist such as the former trade minister under the leadership of the former president John Dramani Mahama, Ekow Spio Garbrah had reiterated and stands by his opinion as to why the Nana led government ought to lavishly take into account an inclusive government.
Spio Garbrah when disclosing his view gave his standing orders that should the president decides to go by the inclusive government it would auger well for Ghana as a country.
To him, regardless of the political affiliation, background, we should all work towards the development of Ghana.
In Ghana, such a record was broken by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo who always stands by his words as he appointed Edward Nasigre Mahama of the PNC in his first tenure of office to play a diplomatic ambassadorial role.
In order to spearhead development across the length and breadth of Ghana, there is a strong need for inclusiveness of governance in the sense that those individuals in Ghana who are uniquely empowered, possesses a requisite amount of skills in diverse areas may add depth to governance.
Parties in opposition including the CPP, NDC, GCPP, GFP, APC, PPP, GUM, NDP, PNC and many other political parties undoubtedly has to their credit a calibre of personalities and in the quest of nation building harnessing and revitalising the talent from them could help a lot.
Now should the government decides to dine with opposition parties in his governance, the likelihood of choosing the following candidates would be a reality;
1. Kofi Akpaloo (LPG)
2. Sofo Kyiri Abosom of (GUM)
3. Ivor Green Street (CPP)
4. Papa Kwasi Nduom(PPP)
5. Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings
Interestingly, it is clear that the other political party like the NDC would never agree any appointment under their rival, the New Patriotic Party with the notion that it could make the NPP strong and as such the General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketiah would not welcome such an idea as they are even battling the NPP and the EC to reverse the results in favour John Mahama at the Supreme Court.
