Ghana, the Country I Hate to Live in Now…

2 min


When I hear people talk about Heaven and Hell, I ask myself this question; is there any place worse than Ghana that if I am not careful, I could find myself there?

You may have heard a lot about the unbearable state Ghana has found itself—-due to our industrious politicians who are working tirelessly day and night to fill their bank accounts to the detriment of the entire nation.

Having been able to live in Ghana for 27 years had made me a ‘black Ninja’, not the one capable of kicking some bad a$$ but the one who has been beaten so many times by the rains of hardship to the extent that, I cannot even be bothered any more with incoming kicks.

It may sound like a joke when we regularly slam ECG for the unending power crisis but in reality, what else can we do apart from to convert our compounding anger into little insults—which no one really cares about?

I have not travelled anywhere out of Ghana before but I really don’t think living in a country with some few people burning cash in your face while these same people in authority cannot just provide the basic for you—water, electricity and employment is the worst condition to live under…

I wake up each day hating my own country—the place of my birth and it is not because some aliens have ceased power to massacre the citizens but our own people are indirectly killing the hopes, aspiration and welfare of us all.

When I hear people throw insults on social media, it begins to hurt as a citizen but the truth is, these insults get my hatred to jumps higher…

Maybe I am ranting but to be frank, if you have a bunch of educated elites in charge of your country and they decide to play ping-pong with everything that could make your life better, ranting is the least you would do…

We are supposed to love our country; but what is a country if it cannot take care of its own citizens? The frustration of ordinary Ghanaians can’t be ignored any more—things have to changed in Ghana and the earlier the better!

  1. Ghana will never see changes if the people don’t create competition between the various political parties in the country.

  2. Hmm nice one.i think Ghana s problem is bigger than party politics.Most of us have actually failed the country.How accountable do we make our do we choose them? What criteria goes into selecting them and on what issues do we choose them.Do we have a national agenda as a country?Are Ghanaians still patriotic?As citizens what can we do for our country and what can our country do for us.Well the past is in the past,but as the youth of the country lets start and put things in place.Nobody can help us but ourselves.

  3. In my observation. Another reason why we haven’t seen much progress in our quest to development is the fact that, we unintentionally created two party State. There are other political parties in Ghana to choose from. Why always NDC and NPP? If the NDC and the NPP are aware that political power will always rotate between them do you think Ghana will move forward? I think not. There must be change.

  4. I agree with you King,probably our part of the world need more than Liberal democracy and party politics.I don’t mean we need dictators but just watch Asia and you will understand.democracy has its disadvantages and advantages same can be said about socialism and other ideal ogives.It’s for us to decide which one can best serve our interest.Naturally most Africans are conservatives but with socialism tendencies.everything we grew to know and understand was all about communal belonging,I guess the new generation are lost on this.We confused with what system we should be emulating or practicing.Most political scientist blame Nkrumah for certain decisions or the latter days of his rule,when he started shifting from West and their liberal democracy to the Far East with their socialism,I guess he could see the problems associated with the systems.why do we learn history?I hope our history will be a guide to our countries future prospects.
