This morning, I wrote an article about Afia Schwarzenegger heavily criticizing Ghanaians for the Pokuase interchange pavement fufu pounding. Afia found it perplexing to understand Ghanaians. According to Afia, we claim we want a fixed country, however, our attitudes are not ready for that development. She used the fufu pounding incidence at the Pokuase interchange to explain her point. The Pokuase interchange that is estimated at the cost of $94.8 million was ridiculed to the lowest insolence after some Ghanaians were caught pounding Fufu there- the place is now an extension of someone’s kitchen.
This morning on Media General’s Newday, Berla Mundi and Johnnie Hughes engaged in an argument about the same topic. According to Ghana’s most decorated journalist- Berla, some Ghanaians have an attitude problem and if it doesn’t get solved, there is no way we can fix the nation. She further used the “Circle Dubai” as a scenario- where people used to sleep under the interchange. It took the city officials to plant stones with spike edges there. However, the people relocated to the middle of the interchange which had no spike stones there.
Johnnie Hughes counter-argued that, when people enter the Military Barracks, they discipline themselves. They don’t want to make any mistake that will land them in trouble because of the regiment of laws there. Thus, if there are effective laws and systems in this country, there is no way one can misbehave and/or do the wrong. Besides, Ghanaians travel abroad and our behaviour there is top-notch. So, what is different from there and here? proper and effective system! So, we must #Fixthecountry first and the attitude will change automatically.
