Dr. Afari Gyan, who played a pivotal role in overseeing Ghana’s electoral processes for many years, did not specify the institutions in question but alluded to concerns that go beyond just electoral matters. He stressed the importance of upholding the integrity of institutions that form the backbone of the nation’s governance.
His remarks have triggered discussions on the state of Ghana’s institutions and the implications of perceived integrity issues. Many citizens and experts have weighed in, expressing their views on the significance of maintaining trust in key organizations for the overall health of the democratic system.
