A quick note to Myles - on why Agyapa Royalties isn't a clever idea in a corruption-riddled Ghana
LISTEN MAY 7, 2021

Thanks for sharing your opinion, Myles. Agyapa might be a very clever idea, was Ghana not a corruption-riddled society, dominated by the ruthless and cynical big-thieves-in-high-places, destroying our nation, with the unfathomable greed that drives them. Get it?

Far better for our younger generations, then, that Parliament passes a new law, ring-fencing the guaranteed U.S.$200 million annual gold royalties, to provide interest-free long-term loans, to fund potentially profitable business ventures, of the most innovative, of Ghana's many brilliant cash-strapped young entrepreneurs.

Will that not create wealth that remains in Ghana, and jobs galore, in a nation in which youth unemployment is a social-time-bomb, which poses a national-security-threat that could destabilise our country, and set it back ages: were it to explode? Never discount that vital-negative-factor, in your clever calculations, Myles.

With the greatest respect, our hard-of-hearing ruling-élites need to understand, clearly, why commonsense, not sleight-of-hand-cleverness, is an important prerequisite for the good leadership, desperately needed, to fix our country's myriad of challenges. Some of us are tired of the endless self-seeking of smug too-clever-by-half-incompetents, in the corridors of power, dressed up as cleverness. Enough is enough. Haaba.
