An election year agenda

By Accra Mail



Our lead story today would no doubt take some people by surprise. To serious ADM readers, it would not, because at the beginning of the year we stated that as a newspaper, we would afford the electorate as much as possible the information required to make informed judgement as they decide towards the forthcoming elections.

Our core liberal democratic values remain unshaken; indeed, we believe those values would be strengthened by this approach. We also believe that the time is coming, when the Ghanaian media, our individual philosophies notwithstanding, have to grow and keep up with the pace of our country’s democratic and economic development. As things stand now, we are being left behind.

Ghana is making great political and economic strides and it is about time we also started reflecting those great strides. Our role now is to help in refocusing minds towards the attainment of the UN’s MDGs and our own mid-income projections by 2015. These we can achieve only through individual creativity and mass productivity. Any deflection, through media bloody mindedness can only delay or even stop the nation’s progress.

Our mission therefore in this very crucial election year is to help identify that middle ground that would lead to yet again free, fair and peaceful elections that would propel our country into the next stage of its political and economic development. To this end, our readers should not be surprised to see more NDC, PNC, CPP, DFP and NPP stories on our front pages. Some may be critical, others would be purely informational (like today’s), but the ultimate aim would be the survival of Ghana’s democracy.
