She blamed Ghanaians for the notoriously drastic falling standard of moral values in our contemporary society, it is indeed a collective responsibility for us to restore and sustain our cherished values that have been thrown into the ditch for an inexplicable reasons.
Hon Justina Owusu-Banahene was speaking at the 2021 International Peace Day organised by National Peace Council in Sunyani on Tuesday under the theme; Recovering Better for an Equitable and Sustainable World.
The Ghana I know is not the Ghana we are living in today. Is it the technology that has caused this sharp and swift change, Ghana was a country where every child was everybody's child. It was also a country where teachers were holistically relied on for moral upbringing of the young once, this does not exist any longer, "she opined".
She averred that, the get rich quick attitude of the youth today, born out of irresponsible parenting, money conscious men of God who usually hand pick some quotations from the Bible for their insatiable quest for wealth and the opulent is yet another debilitating factor that is plunging the society into chaos.
She explained that, it is a collective responsibility for us all to spare no effort to fight hard to restore our most cherished values that have been thrown to the dogs in exchange for mere perishable material things.
Justina Owusu-Banahene indicated that, the sustenance of the country’s peace is a shared responsibility for all Ghanaians and has therefore entreated citizens to play their part in keeping the country united even after a fiercely contested election.
