Justice for June 3 Victims

A statement issued in Accra on Wednesday and signed by the Coordinator of OneGhana Movement, Ms Baaba Enchill said the launch will be aired live on radio from 4:00 to 5:20pm.

The organisation’s first project, dubbed the ‘J4J3-Campaign’, a campaign aimed at driving citizen responsibility and policy accountability through the pursuit of justice for victims of the Adabraka June 3 avoidable disaster, will be launched on that day.

The campaign will include legal aid for victims, and public advocacy on corporate and regulatory accountability.

“We believe that a strong and active civil society is essential to addressing the root causes of today’s most pressing societal, economic, and political challenges. “We believe that an informed and responsible citizenry is key to exacting governance accountability and progressive policy making which are critical for the socio-economic development of Ghana,” the statement added.
