She additionally lamented about Ghanaians’ lack of regard for integrity, transparency, and accountability, which was the ethos that outlined the nation.
She ended by calling for all palms on deck to save lots of Ghana from the present trajectory earlier than it’s doomed past redemption.

As I dream of the Ghana my coronary heart longs for, I generally really feel disillusioned and saddened by the realisation that in my quick lifetime, I’ve witnessed us go from a can-do spirit, to one in all passing the buck with the concomitant lack of accountability.
How have we allowed our nation to be hijacked in probably the most insidious manner doable?
That now, while you communicate with outrage on the present scenario, you might be accused of making instability!
We could proceed to watch with reticence the erosion of all the things that after made us the envy of so many different nations?
Are we content material to permit a misconstrued idea of democracy to destroy us from inside within the identify of sustaining the established order?
I lately learn some phrases that have been so deep and certainly my ideas return to them as I replicate.
“DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR FOR THE LESSER EVIL!”
Within the identify of multiparty politics, we’ve sought to make room for the lesser evil at each flip; to compromise on proper and incorrect with every step. And with every compromise and with every crack within the wall of integrity, we’ve let in demons that we maybe didn’t anticipate and due to this fact appear to lack the abilities or the conviction to exorcise. So, at what level can we draw the road?
Like termites, the lesser evil eats on the core of the large tree trunk whereas nonetheless giving a semblance- albeit superficially, that every one is nicely. And right here is the irony. We all know the indicators of termite infestation after we see them and but in the future, the tree cracks and collapses as passers-by look on in shock asking each other how this might presumably have occurred. As with termites, when you begin seeing traces on the floor of the tree, it means there’s already some harm deeper than meets the attention. And so it’s with corruption and greed and the shifting of our ethical compass; it eats away steadily until there isn’t any anchor to carry the tree. All it takes then, is somewhat wind or a little bit of rain to deliver all of it crashing down!!!
So, whither are we sure as a nation? We could proceed sliding down the slope into the abyss by advantage of our reticence or inaction or dare to face up and be counted as we demand a paradigm shift inside our society… beginning with ourselves? A change that renders sacred the ideas of excellent governance and celebrates integrity, transparency, and accountability; a motion that makes a constant effort in direction of restoring the strong ideas that can shield a permanent legacy of our beloved Ghana. Allow us to restore this nation collectively! #TogetherWeBuild
