Having toured every corner in this country, the story on how many young people behave is virtually same.
I therefore stand by my earlier conviction that the youth of Ghana, regardless of our geographical location, must take steps to influence our immediate environment in a progressive and unconventional way or suffer-long.
Isn’t it sad and shocking that we continually look up to a “superior being” to not just deliver ‘the goodies’ but to respectfully do so at our doorstep? Irrespective of this useless faith, you will agree that for your over 15 years on earth, nothing has ever come to you with ease so why waste time to complain?
The ‘sweetest thing’ about us is how comfortable we are with wasting resources (including internet) on meaningless exploits yet are able to easily point similar flaws of our leaders. So what puts us in a better place to replace them?
Again isn’t it comical to hear young people talking about how filth has engulfed their own neighborhood and make calls on ‘authorities’ when action could be taken to mitigate the situation or better still innovative solution could be created to make money from dumpers?
Dear one, you and I know pretty well that nobody is coming to save us whether or not we linger and wail in oblivious sentiments and cast blames on our so-called leaders when we cannot even lead ourselves in actual fact!
