Notes from the Public Square: What Ghanaians Said & How They Felt During Kufuor’s Presidency
The second president of Ghana’s 4th Republic, John Agyekum Kufuor, was in office from January 7, 2001 to January 7, 2009. His government implemented several policies and programs in attempts to address important public problems when he took office. The overarching question of this book is simple— given all the efforts of his government, what did Ghanaians think, feel, and say during his presidency? And to what extent did those sentiments change—positively or negatively—throughout his term in office?
Drawing on public opinion data from the Afrobarometer Survey, and focusing on critical themes – country’s economic conditions, individual living conditions, experiences with deprivation of basic life necessities, government’s handling of key public problems, evaluation of the president, attitudes towards democracy and the overall governance environment – this book provides answers to these question
