Politics without Focus is Dangerous

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is never wrong to be political oriented, but the earlier we accept the truth, the better it is for us all.

Politics is part of us, from homes, churches, schools to the national level. I vividly remember during my political class, my lecturer said, human beings are political animal.

We cannot do without politics, therefore we need to do it right so that we get the right results. Politics helps in governance and the development of a country, but in our beloved Ghana, the story is different. It is rather retarding development and causing Ghanaians so much pain. Innocent individuals are dying before their time and suffering due to our bad politics.

National Interest First

The danger of politicising every national issue will come to haunt us one day because, we have political parties which are either in government or opposition always trying to do things in the interest of their parties without the interest of the majority of Ghanaians. When they are in power, they don’t see the right things, all what they see is their personal interest, family and friends. Immediately they come to opposition, they start to see things right, pointing out what the party in power should do. Why didn’t you do that when you were in power? What prevented you to do the right thing?

Government should develop policies or National plan that every government would work with irrespective of the political party. This would go a long way to help the future generation. We have a lot of laudable policies that are not sustainable, we have a lot of laws but not enforced and we have a lot of corrupt individuals in government polluting the good ones.

Change of Attitude

Some Politicians and Ghanaians should change their attitudes and work in the interest of Ghana. What are we living behind for our next generation? Ask yourself, if Dr. Kwame Nkrumah among other leaders ruled the country this way, would you have come to meet what you are enjoying now?

Government finds it difficult to continue and complete projects the previous government started all in the name of partisan politics. Some key hospitals when built would enhance quality delivery of health service have been abandoned for some Ghanaians to suffer and die due to poor delivery of health care. Some key roads and other projects have equally been abandoned because, if the government complete and commission it, the previous government will take credit saying I was the one who started it.

The government is failing to address  the laying off of workers, political hooliganism, fighting corruption cases such as the Bulk Oil Storage and Transport (BOST) among others but going the extreme to fulfil its manifesto promises so they could win votes or the trust of electorates in 2020.

Let’s think about the people!   Government should address pressing issues which would value to the lives of Ghanaians whether it is in your manifesto or not.

The politicisation of national issues would not augur well for the democratic dispensation as it could retard  development as well as lead to chaos in the country if we do not start to do things right.

The way Forward

It is high time Ghanaians threw their weight behind the government as the choice of the citizenry to enable them champion national development efforts for the benefit of the people.

It is high time Ghanaians shared their views on national issues without being tagged as belonging to any political affiliation.

It is high time the media gave more attention to development issues like what Citi FM does than the politics that dominates national discourse presently.

It is high time religious leaders or the Clergy advised politicians that, once elections are over, let us talk about Ghana, not political parties, let us talk about Ghana- not tribal politics.

Let us talk about Ghana- not religious politics. Let us talk about Ghana- not an individual driven vengeance so that every stakeholder, irrespective of his or her political orientation, is brought on board to help find lasting solution to our educational predicament and national development as a whole.

The future of Ghana would be bright when politicians commit themselves to the depoliticisation of the educational system and Socio-economic development.

Ghana has a brighter future!

Let’s speak for change!
