We Must Unite And Work For The Common Good Of The Generality Of Ghanaian Society
Listen to article

Ghanaians need to unite to work for vital common-good causes. Sadly, most of the members of our nation's political class, although pretty close to each other (albeit in scratch-my-back-I-scratch-yours fashion), delight in giving the world the false impression that they dislike each other intensely. Yet, nothing could be further from the truth.

In that respect, they are doing enormous harm to Mother Ghana, and abnegating their leadership-responsibilities to the masses of the Ghanaian populace - for the Covid-era challenges we currently face, as an aspirational African people, are enormous. We must unite to confront those challenges - all of which could destabilise our very beautiful and relatively peaceful country.

What we need to focus on - instead of the never-ending-bickering - is the creation of a truly enabling environment, which empowers Ghana's private sector's young entrepreneurs, to successfully develop new start-up businesses, which can create wealth that remains in Ghana, and generate jobs galore, nationwide.

Above all, the more responsible sections of the Ghanaian media, ought to demand that all our nation's politicians (who, in any case, across the spectrum, constantly insist that the private sector is the engine of growth for Ghana's real economy, in their view), must now unite and support the government's 5-year Greening Ghana initiative, designed to create new green capital for a new national green economy, tomorrow, and the World Bank-backed Ghana Economic Transformation Project's Ghana Enterprise Agency's (GEA) Grant Support for SMEs initiative, to ensure the success of both those laudable longterm initiatives: for the common-good of the generality of Ghanaian society.
