A member of the OneGhana Movement has lamented the uneven opportunities for the youth in the country.

According to Senyo Hosi, the increasing rate of nepotism across state and security agencies have become an albatross on the neck of the citizenry.

“Our government sector jobs from ministries to state-owned enterprises have now been overwhelmed by the term ‘Protocol’. You need to be well connected politically or socially to stand a good chance,” he said.

The Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Chamber of Bulk Oil Distributors (CBOD) was speaking at the 2022 Constitution Day Public Lecture at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) Law School.

The event organised in collaboration with One Ghana Movement is on the topic: “Avoiding the Impending Death of the 1992 Constitution.”

Speaking at the school’s Kofi Ohene-Konadu Auditorium, Senyo Hosi feared that if left unchecked, a time when even security agencies may be segmented into political factions, a development which will not augur well for development.

“We will soon have, if we already don’t, an NDC and NPP silent faction of security services. I have seen first-hand the party caucuses in our state-owned enterprises, regulatory bodies, and educational system,” he said on Friday, January 14.

Mr Hosi urged that meritocracy be prioritised in these areas to improve equality and accelerate development.
