Justice Jones V. Dotse, Justice of the Supreme Court of Ghana is set to chair the launch of the OneGhana Movement on Friday, June 2 at the British Council in Accra.
The keynote address at the launch will be delivered by Rev. Dr. Joyce Aryee, a former C.E.O of the Ghana Chamber of Mines. The launch is expected to be aired live on radio from 4:00 to 5:20 pm.
The organisation’s first project will be the “J4J3-Campaign”, which is geared towards driving citizen responsibility and policy accountability through the pursuit of justice for victims of the 2015 June 3 flood and fire disaster.
The disaster saw the death of over 150 persons after an explosion at a Goil fuel station at Kwame Nkrumah Circle area.
The campaign will include legal aid for victims and public advocacy on corporate and regulatory accountability.
The OneGhana movement has been described as a thought leadership and social action Not-for-Profit organisation that seeks to promote citizen responsibility, promote the prioritisation of the national interest over partisan politics and promote public policy accountability.
“We believe that a strong and active civil society is essential to address the root causes of today’s most pressing societal, economic, and political challenges. We believe that an informed and responsible citizenry is key to exacting governance accountability and progressive policy making which are critical for the socio-economic development of Ghana,” a statement from the movement noted.
