The National Organiser of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammy Awuku has encouraged Ghanaians to love themselves more for the peace and unity of the nation.
Speaking on the Super Morning Show on Joy FM on Christmas Day, his message was that despite the differences Ghanaians may have, “we must be citizens not spectators for the attainment of a better Ghana.”
“We may not agree on everything but we should know that we have a common destination that we will want to get to, to see the Ghana that we dream of. That can only happen when we rededicate ourselves to that common agenda.
“We need not develop the bystander effect where we sit and watch aloof when things are not going right,” he said.
He encouraged Ghanaians to celebrate the achievements of others as it would encourage them to strive to do more.
“We should be able to congratulate and encourage ourselves when we see any colleague of ours also doing well.”
He shared his biggest wish for the country, this festive season, which included steering the country on a path of progress.
“We need to love ourselves more, and see that we have a common agenda, that is to take our people from the shackles of poverty, and drive them to the destination of prosperity.”
