Politics and Ghana ……
I have been bombarded in my inbox about why i do not get involved in national issues so i have penned a few paragraphs to broadly explain why!
Ghana is bigger than all of us and loyalty to public servants in the face of failure and wrong doing is as sinful as the wrong doers! The majority of our problems over the years have not required any levels of genius to figure out and suggestions on resolving should not have been the preserve of pointless committees rather one of strong, decisive, brave and patriotic leadership!
As a patriot my concerns have always been about Ghana first rather than individuals which is why i refused to support various Minister of Sports over the years, taken on misuse of funds in campaigning as well as the arrogance of political power exhibited by some who have behaved as though their tenure was forever and that they were accountable to no one other than themselves! In fact there are no areas that this does not apply and it is perhaps for this reason that i am invariably misunderstood (especially by those incapable of true separation of right from wrong from personal or nepotic gain) and excluded from most obvious chances to serve!
Over the past 16 years i have reached out on all sides of the divide when and where i have felt there is a contribution to make which could make a difference. My help sadly is rarely embraced and I like the rest of Ghanaians often have to sit as politicians with little to no experience, sophistication or ability mess up!
Even though my educational discipline is Economics my forte’ has been as a businessman, marketer, administrator and global being. As ministers are appointed I like you know that more often than not they simply do not have the capacity to comprehend let alone deliver and this is why i (and like minded people) try and reach out irrespective of who they are!
The less said at this point (although not for long) about Sports and soccer the better but as a Ghanaian i feel the pain like everyone!
