The Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral, Apostle Opoku Onyinah, has been reminded that the backlash fired by the youth of today on the leadership of the country is a result of their exploitation and neglect of the people they are to serve. Kwame A-Plus finds a recent call by Apostle Opoku Onyinah to the youth to refrain from insulting leaders of the country, as untenable.
He questioned if there is any reason the Ghanaian has to suffer for the irresponsibility and wastage of public funds in the country. The controversial political activist argued that the posturing of the leadership in the country leaves the youth with no other choice than to insult or lambast them for their wrong decisions.
Kwame A-Plus reckoned that there is no reason to defend authorities for their misdeeds which had visited hardship on the people. He referenced that Apostle Opoku Onyinahs' resolve to pray to God for the forgiveness of the sins committed by most critics on the National Cathedral project, should equally be for the leaders of the nation.
He wondered why the government could prioritize the mobilization of funds from the people for the cathedral when many had already lost their jobs and could hardly make ends meet. A-Plus added that the rate of impoverishment, under-development in our education, health, and other needs should have been the priority of the government and not a place of worship.
"What about praying for our leaders to help the children who school under trees. As a man of God, I rather expect you to pray for our leaders who spent 12 million cedis to purchase tree seedlings but asked for 100 cedis per month's donations to build a cathedral?
"Common sense should tell you that, but for "create loot and share," any sensible leader will ask Ghanaians to purchase a tree for ten cedis and plant it."
Kwame A-Plus asked Ghanaians not to misconstrue his critique to be an insult but a matter of great concern that must be addressed if leadership wish to be trusted and respected. He insisted that the change as expected by Apostle Opoku Onyinah must begin with leadership, as their actions are what provokes the undesired reactions from the people.
