Popular Ghanaian man of God, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams has expressed worry over how various governments have sabotaged private Ghanaian-owned businesses just to please and favour foreign businesses based in Ghana.
The man of God delivering a sermon in his church on Sunday, September 1, 2019, lamented;
“The level of insecurity, envy and jealousy in this country is amazing”.
And if you look at our political system, the way it’s designed, it enhances jealousy and envy”, he observed, adding: “It empowers envy and jealousy”.
“So, it has become a vicious cycle where we have become a society of bringing down one another”.
Archbishop Duncan-Williams continued that;
“And I don’t want to be political, but if you look at people like Zoomlion and others, Zoomlion is a Ghanaian but every government that has come will go after Zoomlion because they don’t understand why a Ghanaian should make it that big”.
According to Duncan Williams; “governments prefer to cut deals with foreigners and let foreigners come in, take our inheritance, and give us crumbs and peanuts rather than to make deals with a Ghanaian”.
Touching on the issue of NPP and NDC’s dominance in Ghana, he added;
“Any government that comes, they’ll tell them that: ‘This man is NPP, or this man is NDC; he’s an enemy of our party, he’s an enemy of the state, he’s an enemy of the nation, pull him down, bring him down”.
He concluded that;
“And we’ll take away everything he has and give it to foreigners, so, sometimes when you’re travelling on the Spintex Road, you’ll see shops, [on which it’s written]: ‘Thank you Ghana’. And another will say: ‘I love Ghana. Ghana is good’.
There’s no name they haven’t named me, so, I’m not worried anymore about talking because whether I talk or not, there are people who believe I’m NDC and there are people who believe I’m NPP and there are others who believe I don’t belong anywhere and there are those who also believe that I’ve lost my way and some also believe I don’t know where I’m going or where I belong. You can think whatever you think, you’re entitled to your opinion”.
