This morning I was listening to president Mahama address the Nation. My brothers were insulting him and saying nothing will change and that he doesn’t mean all the assurances he was making on the radio. I was arguing on his behalf, telling them how he sounds remorseful this time around. And how I believe he has understood the message of #OccupyFlagStaffHouse and will get to work.
Well a few hours later, I feel stupid for supporting him. Truly the economy has reached a crisis point but our clueless leaders continue to make decisions that leave us believing they are viscous, wicked and vile and are only looking for quick excuses to line their own pockets.
I am still trying to recover from the shock of hearing and reading about the government approving a loan to buy pads! Such an insult to our frustrations as a nation…
In the middle of all these bad decisions, we have found nothing meaningful to spend money on but pads? NDC faithfuls were on Facebook defending it as a move to make sure students do not stay away from school because of bad sanitary and toilet facilities. Laughable!
Are we anywhere near economic recovery if we will make such juvenile economic decisions in the middle of several agitations from, different sectors of the economy? We have not recovered from a waste of resources in Brazil and here we are. Not even using our own money, we are borrowing 156 million dollars to buy sanitary pads! God in heaven!
