Prof.Atuguba, Atta Mills, Other academics form new CSO to fight inequalities

The Dean of the Faculty of Law at the University of Ghana(Legon), Professor Raymond Atuguba has together with some distinguished academics and personalities established a Civil Society Organisation, Solidaire Governance Forum(SGF).

The new Think-Tank, which has the brother of the late President John Mills, Dr. Cadman Atta Mills as the Honorary President is a leftist institution which will focus on issues that will ensure social inclusion and the empowerment of the economic disenfranchised within the Ghanaian society.

Speaking at the launch ceremony in Accra today, 21st September 2021, Professor Atuguba pledged the readiness of SGF towards using its invaluable human resources aimed at creating the congenial atmosphere where Ghanaians can enjoy from the natural resources which are abound in Ghana.

“We promise that we will use our joint intellectual resources to support Solidaire Ghana and our Honorary President, Cadman Atta Mills to ensure that all in Ghana in solidarity, drink from the stream and milk of the resources that Odumankoma has given us and that which Osagyefo has maintained and retained for us. “Professor Atuguba assured.

Solidaire Ghana is a pro-poor social democracy organisation which has brought together, consummate academics with the aim of changing the narrative of advocacy in the country. Some of the personalities behind the group include Professor John Gatsi of the University of Cape Coast and Professor Emmanuel Bobobee.

Leadership said, it chose Dr.Kwame Nkrumah’s birthday(21st September) as a strategic date for the launch of SGF because the new Think-Tank stands for the principles which the Ghana founder stood for.

Other CSOs in attendance included COPEC Ghana, Institute of Physical Studies and the African Education Watch. They each delivered a solidarity message at the ceremony which messages centred on encouraging the leadership of Solidaire Ghana to stay focused and to be ready for the myriad of challenges confronting the CSO space in the country.
