"An education which does not cultivate the will is an education that depraves the mind" - Anatole France

On the 8th of September, 2019, schools in Ghana  started the implementation of a new educational policy without textbooks. Teachers who complained were told to download some materials from NaCCA's website to teach, but the pupils and students had no other options to do references. As we speak, it's 2 years now of this curriculum implementation without textbooks. 

And, most schools lack proper classrooms with the necessary teaching and learning materials as well. Examples are: 
1. Huhunya Presby primary, Yilo Krobo Municipal, Eastern Region.
2. Asesewa Community A school, Upper Manya Krobo District, Eastern Region.
3. Kukuom SDA school in Asunafo South of Ahafo Region.
4. Residents of Nkurakan, in an interview said parents prevented their kids from attending classes due to the death trap state of the schools.
5. We're experiencing improper double track system due to lack of facilities etc.

Fellow Ghanaians, regardless of the above pending situations, on 26th of April, 2021, H. E. President Nana Addo urged Corporate Ghana to help him raise $25 million to support Black Stars, meanwhile, the trophy is worth of $4 million if the Black stars wins.

On Friday, 30th April 2021, 8 out of the 411 "Akufo-Addo Graduates", i.e. the first beneficiaries of the Free SHS policy, who obtained 8As in the 2020 WASSCE were at Jubilee House, at my invitation. Indeed, 411 out of the 465 candidates who scored 8As in the 2020 WASSCE were students from Ghana, and beneficiaries of the Free SHS policy. Again, 2020 was the only year that 50% of Ghanaian students scored A1 to C6 in all core subjects. 

Mr. President, with all due respect, after cerebrating the 8As what next? Fine, is there any plans for the unemployed graduates, for even those with first class certificates?

Ghana’s Vice-President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has said even though 70 per cent of the students that sat the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) were Nigerians, Ghanaian students got more 8As than their Nigerian counterparts.

Candidly speaking, Mr. President and his vice do not know when schools in Ghana will be supplied with textbooks and teaching and learning materials. They do not know when the double track will end but they're much interested in the number of 8As.

Besides, when is our President going to build the 88 hospitals, and supply the existing hospitals with beds and equipment to enable health workers deliver very well. The dual carriage roads started by Ex. President J. A. Kuffour from Accra to Kumasi, the abandoned affordable housing projects, the 1D 1F, 1V 1dam, the eastern corridor road, the national cathedral he promised God, the 1region 1 theatre to uphold the movie industry etc. 

Look, they think every Ghanaian has a short memory. This tells that, we have leaders who can create, loot, and share the national cake among themselves but not generational and patriotic leaders with a vision to transform our dear country. 

To be honest with you, both NDC and NPP parties are crooked and richer than Ghana. They have no idea of developing our country. The Big elephant claims to have the Men with higher academic qualifications but no sense to exhibit excellent leadership. So as the white dove seems to be innocent but also greedy and has no sense of feelings.

We beseech each one of you, especially the youth, take control over your life, discover your talent, learn a skill and build upon it for a better tomorrow. Stop following politicians blindly, they know who to inherit their positions. Let's be smarter and confront them positively and ask for our share if the National cake now!!. They have no plans for us.

We're citizens of Ghana. Africa is born in us.
