An Open Letter To Sam Hanson And His Fellow Liberian Refugees Who Opted For Integration Into Ghanaian Society
LISTEN AUG 21, 2021

My dear Sam,

I am aghast at the insouciance still being shown by some of those in the Camp Liberia Liberian refugee community, who opted for integration into Ghanaian society, as the UNHCR formally ends the role it has played in protecting and promoting their welfare since they first set foot on Ghanaian soil.

Sam, what is the role of Noble Symbols Welfare Council, in averting the looming disaster, which the category of individuals amongst the Liberian refugee community, who opted for integration into Ghanaian society, face, as we speak - and why should Kofi Thompson be the one to reach out to their chairperson, at what is the eleventh-hour, for your community that faces the threat of having its refugee settlement area demolished?

With the greatest respect, I no longer chase disadvantaged people who need help - so I can help them, ooooo. That was then.

I am now fed up to the backteeth, with people in trouble, who insult one in their being suspicious of one's motives, and doubting one's integrity - simply because one happens to enjoy helping those with resolvable-challenges. Sadly, such people invariably think one seeks to exploit their situation, somehow, for personal advantage, I have now come to realise. I don't need their wahala, and egregious negativity, at this stage of my life, koraaaaa. I turn 70 next year, Sam.

Yes, I am still willing to play a part in making available, the ideas and resource-persons, needed, to empower that base-of-the-pyramid demographic to bootstrap their own success - but it is they who should reach out to Kofi Thompson: not the other way round, wai, Massa. To use a popular Ghanaian Pidgin English phrase: Make you people do something, quick, oooo - otherwise it go be too late. Yooooooo.
