Ghanaians Are Paying The Price Of A Wrong Change



The results of the 2020 elections sent me a pang of pain. After all that he done for Ghana, I thought it was unfair that H.E. John Dramani Mahama did not reclaim the presidency.

But, on second thinking, I’m comforted by the idea that what happened provides an opportunity for Ghanaians to compare leadership skills and admire John Dramani Mahama.

What happened, I feel, had a purpose. The elders of Israel’s tribes approached Samuel in 1 Samuel 8:4-18 and urged a change – they wanted a monarch. Samuel was too elderly, and his sons were wicked, they reasoned. This angered God, but He had no choice but to fulfill their request. He did warn them, however, that requesting a king would be costly and catastrophic, and that it would cost them their freedom.

Similarly, Ghanaians have chosen change, potentially against God’s will, and I have no doubt that, like the Israelites, we have made a costly and tragic decision.

Nana Addo as President Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party promised us an Edenic country, but Nana’s government has a bleak future. The hardship he pledged to alleviate is now escalating, and the urgency of easing Ghanaians’ load appears to have faded away. Prices of products and services are increasing on a daily basis as I write.

Surprisingly, and sadly, most media outlets, religious leaders, and civil society organizations that screamed from the rafters whenever the price of petrol was hiked even by a small margin during the Mahama era are now cautious.

This government’s future appears bleak and bleak. I’m not making any assumptions about the situation because it appears to be that way. Beyond 2024, Ghana’s people may be unable to manage their disappointment and anger, which is a natural reaction to a crisis scenario.

Oops! A joke was almost forgotten. The following questions were asked in a science class test:

1.What is the issue? Shasha Marley’s song “Matter” provides the answer.

2.State the three states of matter. Matter pui, matter tui, and matter fush are the answers.

Managing an African country is no easy task. I observe some people peeing in their trousers due to tiredness, desperation, and a lack of ideas, and I hear them sing: maata pui, pui; maata tui, tui; maata fush.
