The Institute for Intelligence and Strategic Security on the 5th of May, 2022 participated in a forum on Governance and Security organized by Crossfire Think Tank Ghana@Ebenezer Hall, Osu- Accra.
The main speaker for the occasion Honourable Akwasi Oppong-Fosu former Member of Parliament for Amenfi East and Minister for Local Government and Rural Development in the erstwhile Mahama government touched on the need to promote transformational politics rather than transactional politics which does not promote good democratic governance but breeds corruption.
On his part, Dr. Sadiq Adu-Twum who represented IISS spoke on the impact of transactional (monetization) politics on the security architecture of Ghana and made a humble appeal to the political parties to see the need to project a democratic system that is more accountable, transparent and equitable to the people thereby enhancing and deepening the peace Ghana currently enjoys within the sub-region.
Lawyer Kweku Mortey former Director of Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) stressed the need for to revisit the lost values once upheld as a nation that guaranteed patriotism and ensured sanity in society, not politics of materialism and self-aggrandizement.
The Institute for Intelligence and Strategic Security continues to engage and offer supreme knowledge within the Intelligence and Security Community to promote secure and safe communities for socio-economic development of the country.
