Ghana as a country is blessed with almost all of the natural mineral resources: there is fertile land for planting foodstuffs, and the weather is also favorable but unfortunately little or no progress has been made in a very long time.
Today, at the People's Assembly top economics and a preacher man were the panelists and they provided in-depth analysis of the country's economy. The revelations by the gentlemen were extremely worrying when it became clear that the country is broke as a result of thievery, excessive spending, and corruption.
The host Captain Smart enquired from the pastor why we are poor and the answer was that we aren't poor but our inability to handle well what has been handed down to us is the problem.
Pastor Abraham Lamptey clearly stated that the problem is that we have itchy ears and will pay heed to unnecessary things rather than using our minds to think and when one leads with his stomach, he ends up in the lavatory.
In conclusion, he posited that "look at the current leaders, they are the problem. We are wallowing in poverty because we lack good policies and initiatives by the government."
