The people have been asking Foroyaa what the difference between Vision 2016 and Vision 2020 is and whether the Government has reduced its vision from 2020 to 2016 and if so why?
We certainly cannot answer this question. We hope the leadership of the ruling party would come up with a comprehensive policy document to explain what vision 2016 entails. Foroyaa would publish it verbatim and entertain a constructive debate on the topic.
Foroyaa would like to remind the government that the state media should also respond to its constitutional mandate by disseminating divergent views and dissenting opinions. They should encourage the different parties to put their programmes across for public debate. PDOIS came up with AGENDA 2016 and now the APRC has come up with VISION 2016? The people are entitled to an explanation on the content of these programmes so that they could make informed choices.
