My dear compatriots, it’s very clear that we lack patriotic leaders with a positive attitude to end this flooding menace that keeps taking the lives of citizens and destroying properties during rainy seasons.
On June 3, 2015, an explosion and a fire occurred at a petrol station in Ghana’s capital Accra, killing over 250 people. Four years on, no one was held accountable. The message was ‘never again’. It keeps happening at Accra and some other places even this year June 10, 2020.
Most of our Politicians have academic qualifications but lack leadership qualities.
Ex President Mahama declared 3 days’ national mourning for the victims affected by the flood and explosion. His government had also released GH₵ 60 million to support victims. What was the next page? Humbly open it before the election day. You have failed us.
As if we were safe, on the 24 April 2017, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo pledged to make Accra the cleanest and best city in Africa by the end of his first term of office. “The commitment we are making and which I want you all to make with me is that by the time we end our four-year term, Accra is going to be the cleanest city in Africa,” he stated. Then I ask, what happened, Nana Addo? Let us know before that day. You have failed us again.
Fellow citizens, considering the above, I would like to advise each one of us with urgency to master in swimming for safety in this country, without proper drainage system is not guaranteed. Those we voted for have failed us. Both sides of the coin are beyond repairs.
Ghanaian people, I have no right to influence you to say never again to both NDC and NPP parties but, let’s not fail ourselves also. We must not litter our environment. Build at the right place. Keeping the environment clean must be our priority. Don’t wait for the law enforcement agencies to drag you here and there.
Vote for people with values not money.
I am a citizen of Ghana. I love my rich continent.
