The Ghanaian political landscape has dramatically changed—of course, not for the good.
The road to self rule was tedious, thorny and had certain key treacherous characters, but one thing was for certain—we had great, knowledgeable, altruistic and dedicated politicians leading a cause they sincerely believed in.
They believed in Ghana, a Ghana with a better agenda; far opposed to John Mahama’s conception, popularly known as the ‘Better Ghana Agenda’ he prides himself in.
We had those we could call leaders—those who trekked miles to canvass for support for the fight for Independence so that you and I could be free today, only to sell back the freedom at no cost to the Chinese and the West.
The Ghana any of these leaders foresaw is not what we are living in today. They did not just clutch on hope, they were confident it was there—self rule was the only way forward. They saw it as a right, in fact, a duty to self govern.
Today, many of us are fleeing our own Ghana to everywhere West and East, including Bosnia—in search for a better living standard.
