”There’s a reason why the song says; arise Ghana youth for your country and not; arise Ghana old men for your country. You have a duty as a youth in this country to stand up and ensure the right things are done for the development of the country”.
Captain smart bemoaned the current spate of Police and Military brutalities on innocent citizens in the country and called on the Inspector General of Police and the Chief of Defence staff to as a matter of urgency, take steps to get rid of rogue elements and also resist political interferences to avoid the recruitment of political hoodlums who find their way into the security services and act unprofessionally.
The outspoken journalist also called on all statesmen and women including former President J.A Kuffour, former President John Dramani Mahama, Former First Ladies and Second Ladies; Theresa Kuffour, Naadu Mills, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, Matilda Amissah-Arthur and Hajia Rhamatu Mahama to speak up against the violence that is being orchestrated by Security personnel against the citizenry because their silence has been worrying.
”All the former Presidents, First Ladies and Second Ladies, this is the time the country needs you most. Your silence is very worrying and you need to speak up. You are no longer seen as political people but statesmen and women who are held in high regard and so speak up please”.
“For those of you who studied economics, you about elasticity. When you stretch something to much, it gets to the point that it can no longer be stretched and so it comes back at you with full force. The Ghanaian youth are being pushed to the wall by the state and security services and if care is not taken, it will get to the point where they would be left with no choice but to push back with all the strength in them”.
Captain smart also reiterated that, the jobless Ghanaian youth wake up to hopelessness and efforts must be made to fix a lot of things in the country including unemployment.
First of all, we have gotten to the stage as people and a country where we need to realize that our loyalty is to Ghana first and nothing else. We must have it at the back of our minds that, there is a country to develop and we still have a long way to go as people. The only way we can take this country to the desired level where the system would be seen to be working is to allow institutions to work without political, tribal and religious interferences.
The laws must be applied regardless of the individuals culpable. We must respect the people irrespective of the position we occupy in society and have the political will to work diligently towards the development of this country.
We have only one Ghana and if others have developed their countries and we are eager to travel there, we should equally make the effort to develop our own and make it attractive for others. We must employ a bi-partisan approach and accommodate and tolerate the views of others .
We belong to different political parties not because we are more sensible or lack knowledge but because we love this country and have different ideologies towards the growth of this country. Let us welcome the views of each other and accept criticisms as they come and so the right things to move this country forward.
