Bless you, Daryl. Well said, young man. Make the business of shaping our society into one in which all the people, not just a powerful and well-connected few, benefit from our nation's considerable wealth, your individual concern too. I believe it is called apolitical-politics.

What we need, as an aspirational and peace-loving African people, is a new kind of politics - in which our younger generations put aside the narrow-mindedness of the NPP/NDC duopoly's self-serving, nation-wrecking pork-barrel-politricks - and focus instead on making Ghana one of the most prosperous nations on earth, by harnessing the energy from your generation's amazing world-class talent-pool.

The goal of your generation, ought to be the creation of a new green e-society, in which all enjoy a high standard of living, and have a good quality of life - resulting from the deliberate prioritising of an environmental policy,

designed to make our homeland Ghana, a nation whose people enjoy the manifold blessings of possessing the world's biggest tree-cover.

As my widow's mite contribution to that noble nation-building goal, my humble advice to your generation, as you take over the baton of leadership, is that you can make a good start by collaborating with your counterparts in Estonia, to digitise our system rapidly. Think of the jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities that would create.

Finally, sea-level-rise is occurring, from thermal water expansion resulting from ocean-warming. To help save Ghana's coastal fishing communities, collaborate with your cousins from Senegal, to regrow the mangrove forests along our coastline - decimated by decades of egregious pollution. Just my two pesewas, Daryl.
