PARTISAN POLITICS, COVER UPS, CORRUPTION, TRIBALISM, INDISCIPLINE, AND CO ARE GHANA’S REAL ENEMIES OF PROGRESS.
The truth must be told. The LORD GOD has really blessed us with every natural resources we need as a country. It seems we have taken all these privileges for granted. Religiously there is peace, harmony, and understanding among the religious beliefs in the country.
The question is that why can’t Ghana turn to become a first-class Nation?
I have a problem about how we elect our president and vice mostly on religious background.
I am of the view that if we can have a patriotic and competent president and vice from one religion, there is no need to mixed the president and vice based on religious background.
It looks like we have abused the time needed to achieve’s certain developments on record time with bad attitudes.
We don’t take our works seriously especially some of the workers in the public sector, some of the them don’t thinks about how to progress the work , but what some of them are interested in is how to satisfy’s their stomach and pocket.
Cover-up is another Epidemic of the enemies of progress in Ghana. Most of the leaders needs those who can dance to their music to work with so that I snatch your back and you snatch my back game will be outplayed to the gallery. When sometimes you overheard a certain leader glamouring against someone, not interested to work with someone,is simply because he can’t create, loot, and share with the person.
When a certain leaders see those working with him to be a threat for him, he will do anything humanly possible, to sabotage them.
No leader want to be exposed. They always want those who can do cover-ups for them to work with. So that their cobwebs and skeletons will be hidden, from the public.
Partisan politics always hijacked the truth to be seen and known. The political parties communicators will always defend the indefensible. Even when their parties are wrong, they will still defend the party. Because of political appointment, none of the parties members wants to criticize’s and condemn’s his or her own party for wrongful doing, bad actions, and unneedful policies.
Apart from Honourable Kennedy Ohene Agyapong the legislature a member of parliament for Assin central who sometimes fires his own party, when he disagrees with them. Some also says when he needs certain contracts from his party, then he will deliberately criticize them, for he is very loud and has the media power and influence.
Corruption is bleeding and sinking the country into an abyss. Looking at the over-pricing of certain government contracts will make you cry for mother Ghana. The mindset of some people is if you don’t become corrupt you can’t make it or be successful in life. This is why corruption galon is everywhere. Monies that can be used for state development goes to a corrupt people’s pocket. Corruption is milking the country and it is very sad and pathetic.It clearly shows that we don’t have any love for the country and also don’t think about the future of the country which belongs to the next generation.
The way some are chopping corruption monies today as if the is no tomorrow for the country. Until we have an independent anti-corruption body to fight vigorously against corrupt practices in the country, it will always stampies the social-economic, and developmental growth in the country. Another failing gears and break fails that disappoint the fight against corruption is the anti-corruption crusaders, most of them are corrupt than the corruption machinery. They themselves are real definition of corruption.
Tribal bigotry is very sensitive and fragile when talking about it without been circumspect. We should see ourselves as one people, without tribal differences.. There should not be any tribal war and selectiveness among ourselves as a country. We shouldn’t classify’s some tribes to be more superior than others.
There are certain positions and job employment’s if you don’t belong to a certain tribe you will be disqualified, base on your tribal background. This is a real picture of tribalism.Is true that we have different tribe’s among ourselves but the truth is that we are all one people. We are in a 21century the world has changed from the past. Stopping ourselves to intermarry each other because of tribal difference’s must be stopped.
Indiscipline is another canker. Some of us don’t want to be law-abiding citizens. The reason for that is how some of us are indisciplined. Looking at some behaviors of our’s, in the way some of us talk, dress, our actions and inactions shows clearly that some of us are not disciplined.If we don’t change from our indiscipline nature and character,Ghana our beloved country will never progress, economically, socially physically, and financially.
Most developed countries were able to develop because they were discipline. We don’t want to do the right thing but we always needs the rightful results.
The discipline organisations and authorities must enforce their veto powers without fear or favor. The laws that must ensures discipline needs to work effectively.The systems and structures to hit on the nails of discipline must not be hijacked. Building a Nation without discipline is like sitting in a glass room, you must not throws stones. Let us avoid and devoid indiscipline, from our personal lives, our homes, and offices. When we crucified indiscipline and resurrects discipline and our Homeland Ghana, will becomes one of the best country in the world.
