Every country's advancement is dependent on all of us, not just those in positions of power. Changing our bad habits is a surefire method to propel the country ahead to the kingdom of gold and milk. Citizens in industrialized countries are law-abiding, and as a result, they are able to exert any amount of pressure on their governments to restore order.
However, while some individuals are contributing to the development of their country, others are ruining it through strange behavior, and they are the same people who would put pressure on the government to mend the country when they have not fixed themselves.
I've been in Ghana for a long time, and based on my observations, I don't see the country progressing anytime soon, given our current conduct.
The following are some of the most common behaviors that are slowly making a comeback.
Drivers pulling over on major routes where no buses are stopping to pick up a passenger. When another driver collides with it, it could result in a serious accident.
Another way some people are damaging the country is by throwing trash in gutters during a big rainstorm. Some people throw the trash they've accumulated in their homes into moving waters with the intention of getting rid of it. These activities clog gutters, causing flooding.
