The country Ghana and who needs fixing! – the parable of the talent

… to my mind…

Someone will only ask you to fix something when they have the confidence in you to fix it… otherwise there are countless other options available to people to take…

And let’s face it, there are many things to fix… in our dear country Ghana 🇬🇭!

Important also to note is that everyone needs to fix what is in their power to fix!

This is an important and revolutionary time we are living! Even more so as those who actually own the land ‘the young people’ take enough interest in what is around them, governance, the brand Ghana, the future of Ghana and how we get there…

This implies the recognition that Ghana is all we have and the youth is no longer interested in simply jumping ship 🚢!

For afterall, the so-called politician don’t fall from space, they come out of Ghana, born of, born from, born in and many times, raised in…

When I do my illegal connection, it is not a politician…

When I pour plastic into the gutter, it is not the politician…

When I poop 💩 in plastic and throw… it is not the politician…

When I demand payment to do work I am paid to do, it is not a politician…

When I steal from, fail to do the work and collapse my employer, it is not the politician…

When I spit and pee on the side walk, it is not the politician…

When I choose to enable the foreigner and sabotage my country person, it is not a politician…

When I steal medicine from the cabinet of the hospital, it is not the politician…

When I over charge, it is not the politician…

When I cheat and betray those who love me, it is not the politician…

But then it is the politician who amplifies me, because the politician is me… the politician came from me…

BUT I DON’T LIKE THE REFLECTION OF ME THAT I AM SEEING

This is why it is important that we take a step back and see this campaign as an opportunity!

An opportunity to have a conversation and look inwards… an opportunity to be accountable to the people… an opportunity to understand what accountability means… both for the governed and the governor …

For Ghana is a beautiful country, with resources, potential, sunlight, land, healthy and vibrant people, but most importantly, young and strong people…and we don’t deserve to be here… that’s the honest truth!

But no one person got us here… no one political party got us here…

WE GOT US HERE!

It will be a shame if we make this a short, useless, shifting the blame, shallow outcry…

LETS FIX IT, FOR NO ONE WILL FIX WHAT THE GOOD LORD GIVE US TO FIX, BUT US!

This happens once is every 100 years…

I will work to fix my home more, I will work to fix my person more, I will work to fix my environment more… I commit to work tirelessly to deliver on my work…

What is your personal commitment?

  1. Hello Yaa,
    In as much as I agree with the fact that our national situation is self made , I also believe that leadership has a role to play in setting the right examples.Indeed in the eyes most Ghanaians who have been and keep on doing the right things by “fixing ” themselves and situations that are beyond them , the recent rhetoric on the above issue is disheartening.
    Sincerely speaking individual Ghanaians on their own can fix very few things that would have far- reaching consequences but leadership can.For example , as the head of the nascent film authority , there are alot of things you can achieve or institute that individual producers and aspiring scriptwriters like myself can only dream of.
    I don’t believe the majority of Ghanaians are just asking for instant solutions. Yes ,there may be miscreants and politically motivated actors in the push for a fixed country but the reality I see is that we are asking for the sort of leadership that has been missing for a long time, the sort of leadership that is compelling enough to inspire true change and transformation.
    Please think this saying over- You cannot give what you don not have ,but you cannot also have what you do not give.
    Have a great day.
    Regards,Bernard

  2. We are either part of the problem or part of the solution. Sometimes, we are the problem and a factor in the soluton. But would we admit and support the effort. More often, we stand by and point fingers and complain.
    That is the attitude of the Ghanaian. We have a problem.
