“It is regrettable to note that across the continent, and specifically in West Africa, trust in democratic governments is eroding,” she said.

Dr Onwuka said this at the opening ceremony of a two-day youth summit on Democracy and Political Transitions in Africa on the theme: “Harnessing Youth Voices for Change Summit” in Accra, on Tuesday.

… “Indeed, the recent development in the region tells us clearly that we need a shift from democratic score cards being based just on free and fair elections and peaceful transitions to focusing more on indicators of how well people’s human security needs are being met,” she said.
