Employ technology to enhance participation and accountability in local governance – Hon. OPK

Hon. OPK with the Assembly members

The Mpraeso MP, Davis Opoku has advised local assemblies to use new media to promote participatory democracy to ensure transparent and accountable governance.

With the arrival of a plethora of high-tech gadgets in the market, it’s always important to read reviews on these new products and help you make your final decision about purchasing them. There are many sites that offer technology product reviews from GadgetsFind, so all you need to do is to choose the ones that have technology reviews that are suited to your interests and visit their sites to read the information. While gadgets reviews are important for those who are planning to buy gadgets for children and teenagers, technology product reviews for professionals are more informative and useful. If you are an entrepreneur who is planning to start his own business or simply a person who loves gadgets, a technology review can be of great help in choosing the right gadget for yourself.

In his maiden meeting with the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) and staff of Kwahu South Municipal Assembly, the young and affable legislature urged assemblies in Ghana to adopt technology in the discharge of their duties.

He said, “assemblies must open up to participatory democracy by using new media. We need to start streaming assembly meetings on our Facebook pages so our people can contribute to the democratic practice at the local level.”

“In ensuring accountability, we owe it a duty to get our constituents informed in everything we do. This will ensure that they can hold us to our plans and programs in the municipal,” he added.

He assured the assembly of his readiness to contribute to the development of the municipal. “I want to work closely with you to contribute to developing programs and projects for our people.
“One main reason why people voted for me is that they believe I will always be in touch at the local level, and it’s an attitude I intend to adopt”.

Present at the introductory meeting was the MCE, Emmanuel Atta Ofori Snr, the Municipal Coordinating Director and the staff of the assembly. Also in attendance were the New Patriotic Party constituency executives of Mpraeso.
