In The Spotlight
When the likes of Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Modibo Keita of Mali, Gamal Abdul Nasser of Egypt, Sekou Touré of Guinea, Julius Nyerere of Tanzania, and Emperor Haile Selasse of Ethiopia championed the African Unity process, their ultimate aim was to see to it that the efforts of the continent were harnessed to solve the challenges facing their people and make it a great one and a force to reckon with.
We have no respect for the hours set aside for work… we pray, we eat, we visit during working hours. We spend hours chatting on the telephone when customers are waiting to be served, thereby increasing our labour costs. We take a week off for every funeral. And then we wonder why we are not competitive.
Irrespective of his long-suffering on his journey to becoming a democratically elected head of state of the Republic of Ghana, the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has taken an audacious but selfless stance, which is extremely rare on the African continent.
