Ghanaian Hip life Musician turned Politician Kwame Aware Obeng popularly called A Plus is urging the youth to change themselves before criticising leaders of the country if not, they’ll grow to become worse leaders than those they’re criticising now.

In his write up, A Plus indicated that, the old leaders that we see today also criticized their leaders when they were Young.  He explained that the revolution that we all call for must begin with us.

this revolution must begin on an individual or personal level. Instead of being in a hurry to take over governance of the country, let’s first of all take over our emotions, Let’s take over our attitudes towards work, let’s take over our morals, let’s take over our personal sanitation, let’s take over our desire for money. All of us must change before we criticize our leaders. If not we will grow into the same people and do worse than we spent years criticizing!!!”  A Plus explained.

BELOW IS THE WRITE UP BY A PLUS

“Those of us always criticizing and calling for the youth to take over must not pretend the youth have not had multiple opportunities to be part of governance in Ghana.

Young people over the years have played significant roles in every Government. The old men and women you see today were the same young people who criticized the old folks when they were young, advocated for youthful leadership, cried for change and even promised to be better leaders if given the opportunity.

P.V Obeng, ET Mensah, JA Kuffour, Akuffo Addo, JJ Rawlings, Tsatsu Tsikata, Totobi Kwakye, Ahoi Brothers, Alban Gbagbin, etc, were all young advocates who believed that with common sense, wisdom and selflessness, they could steer the country towards prosperity if given the mandate.

Mr. Rawlings for example became head of state in his early 30s and had the opportunity to run the affairs of this country for 19 years. Okudzeto Ablakwa, Felix Ofosu Kwakye, Jame Agyenim Boateng, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, John Jinapor the current defense minister, Dominic Nitiwul, just to mention a few, are examples of young people who were or have been given opportunities to serve the people while in their 20s and 30s.

This revolution must begin on an individual or personal level. Instead of being in a hurry to take over governance of the country, let’s first of all take over our emotions, Let’s take over our attitudes towards work, let’s take over our morals, let’s take over our personal sanitation, let’s take over our desire for money. All of us must change before we criticize our leaders. If not we will grow into the same people and do worse than we spent years criticizing!!! It begins with you and I. We cannot afford to fail ourselves and the next generation. It’s now or never!!! Ghana once again is ready for the next set of young people to take over and lead it to prosperity.”
