Outspoken Journalist and Managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Mr. Kwesi Pratt has once again made a bold declaration about the recent developments that is causing massive stir and uproar among Ghanaians. Kwesi Pratt, considering the level of respect he commands has angrily sent a strong message to Ghanaians and public officials to remain impartial in their comments about national issues.
In what he described as a disappointment, he has fumed and registered his displeasure over some comments made by Ministers of state and members of Parliament over the approval of some books deemed to be ethnocentric. According to the outspoken Journalist, the country would fail woefully in its democratic experiment should these conduct persist.
This marks the third time Mr. Kwesi Pratt has made a statement over the consequences associated with the approval of the book containing ethnocentric comments. He argues that, such divisive materials should not be approved by any public institution.
Speaking in an interview on Good Morning Ghana show hosted by Dr. Randy Abbey today, he clashed with an NPP MP who made some comments over the books. In a heated discussion, Kwesi Pratt called on NaCCA to step up their work.
"State institutions are being over politicised to the extent that people on those institutions make partisan political statements. That is a huge problem for national cohesion and a problem for our political experiment. I believe our country is heading to the direction of chaos. I am sad; That would be the end of our country."
