First and foremost we always have to understand the profound statement in the Bible, ” for lack of knowledge, my people perish.” This statement is for everybody including both blue collar and white collar citizens. I have had a very good experience in the USA.
The sort of experience very few Ghanaians have had the opportunity to experience.
The biggest difference between their society and our society is availability of information. For some reason, it seems we have been hypnotized not to pursue and embrace information. We are scared of information, simple.
It is exactly because of this, that is why we do all the stupid things we are doing now. We have to civilized ourselves by studying everything and be on the cutting edge of everything as a people and as a country. That is why Nana Addo will go done in history as one of the best Presidents in Africa. By just one single act, Free Education, the entire country will be transformed in a few years.
The type of social engineering that will occur is unimaginable. We need to pursue it and ensure we have a population of predominantly people with tertiary education. You will see the miracle that will come our way. Thank you. Happy new year to you all.
