Outspoken political science lecturer, Prof Ransford Gyampo, has called for the dissolution of the entire Akufo-Addo government for their lack of rapid response which has led to the death of 194 citizens on the Adentan-Madina highway.

The Head of European Studies at the University of Ghana who took to his Facebook wall to vent over the recent deaths at the Adenta Highway wrote; “Listen to the Roads and Highways Ministry fumbling on Adom Fm. He is a total disaster and a failure. Running a ministry isn’t child’s play and propaganda. Dissolve the government like KNUST Governing Council”,

A recent incident on Thursday which led to the death of a first year student of the West Africa Secondary School (WASS) sparked an instantaneous demonstration amidst burning of tyres and hurling of stones by the residents of the area, who had complained several times about the carnage they have endured for over 10 years as a result of the unusable footbridges.

Angered by the issue, Prof Gyampo said: “The government heard the complaints about the accidents on the Madina-Adentan road and did nothing until the people demonstrated and there were casualties including loss of lives and injuries inflicted by the police on people who were drawing attention to their plight”.

“Can we call for the dissolution of the government?” he asked.

Prof Gyampo urged Ghanaians to be “empowered to abandon their ‘Fama Nyame’ docility to ensure that governance focuses only on their interest”, adding that: “Governance without a sense of responsiveness is mis-governance”.
