Say No To Mental Slavery

One cannot still fathom why after the abolishment of the slave trade 200 years ago, Africans are still directly or indirectly slaves to the White.

Ghana, for instance, is one of the leading producers of cocoa and gold in the world.

We export these products to the western countries with our own revenues and yet the Whites are the ones who determine the prices for these goods, it sounds absolutely ludicrous!

It will take us a long way to be able to emancipate ourselves from indirect slavery, but a thousand miles of a journey, they say, always starts with a step.

Ghanaians and Africans at large should change their mentality, because that is where the true transformation starts.

Related to this is the fact that Africans have been brainwashed. Doctors, nurses, teachers, labourers and other professionals leave their beloved countries to seek greener pastures abroad.

It seems nothing could be done to stop this menace, but if Ghanaians/Africans would come back to help their nation after earning enough money and knowledge, then, Dr Kwame Nkrumah's efforts to liberate us would not go down the drain.

I, therefore, suggest that we have talk shows, symposia, campaigns, etc. on various institutions; the media and all others should liberate our people from mental slavery, instead of engaging in unproductive arguments and talk shows on our radio and television networks.
