President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is calling on Ghanaians to put away ethnic, political and religious affiliations as our forefathers did.
Speaking at the 65th Independence Day Anniversary held in Cape Coast, Central Region of Ghana, the President used the opportunity to preached against political, ethnic and religious division.
He appreciated the efforts of his predecessors mainly in the zones of ethnic, political, religious affiliations.
He said, “Our forebears worked together with the belief that Ghana, once free and independent, could make her own unique contribution to the growth of world civilization, and be able to generate wealth and prosperity for the masses of her people. They put away ethnic, political and religious affiliations, and came together to work for the liberation of the Gold Coast from colonial and imperial domination. Each one of them contributed their quota towards the free independent Ghana in which we live.”
One would say that “knowledge is power” and proceed to ask that why can’t he follow the path?
What’s good for goose is good for the gander.
The NPP government is preaching what they don’t practice. Few months ago, a natural disaster befall the people of Keta. The current government turned a deaf ear to them.
Later in the news, a gas explosion occurred in Appiatse, Western region of Ghana. The preacher and his official rushed to the scene with myriad donations and support.
Now, humans were involved and life is the property here but. The incidence at Keta was a natural disaster unlike the man-made that happened in Appiatse. Majority of government and media outlets were present to console the victims in Appiate forgetting Keta people.
Considering logic, it might be said that the government doesn’t respect the path of the forebears as they always preach.
