It’s A Great Time To Be Ghanaian
THE PUBLISHER is exceptionally excited over the efforts shown so far by President Akufo-Addo to strengthen the unity among us as Ghanaians irrespective of our political, religious of ethnic backgrounds.
We are excited that an incumbent Ghanaian President, would be humble enough and accommodating enough to have invited leaders of the various political parties in the country to seek their views on some governance-enhancing measures his administration intends to take.
No one is the sole repository of ideas. But often, persons in leadership positions have ignored this axiom and gone ahead to take decisions without broad consultations.
What Nana Akufo-Addo did yesterday is a novelty worth mentioning, applauding and emulating. We at THE PUBLISHER are very proud of him and we urge all political players to take a cur from that clear gesture of unity and harmony.
Yesterday’s meeting had either the Chairpersons or General Secretaries of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), National Democratic Congress (NDC), Progressive Peoples’ Party (PPP), Convention Peoples Party (CPP), Peoples National Convention (PNC), and the National Democratic Party (NDP).
The rest were Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), United Peoples Party (UPP), All Peoples Congress (APC), Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP), United Front Party (UFP), and the Democratic Peoples’ Party (DPP).
Significantly, just when Nana Addo took office, he extended a similar invitation to the three former Presidents, Jerry John Rawlings, John Kufuor and John Mahama to the Presidency where they jaw-jawed and shared ideas on how to move Ghana forward in the right direction.
This are good signs that should trickle down into every aspect of our daily lives.
As THE PUBLISHER said in our editorial for Wednesday, the very great things that we, as a people, can achieve together when united, has never been in doubt.
As Ghanaians, our individual desires and collective consciousness on the crucial need to strengthen the unity among us, as a people, has also never been in doubt. Making a concerted daily effort in our own small ways to make this desire crystalize into reality is what should be our focus as we begin this new year.
THE PUBLISHER we should be seen to be focusing on the things that unite us rather than the things that divide us.
No matter which part of this country one may hail from, we are Ghanaians and we recite one national pledge and sing one national anthem. This is enough reason to remind us all constantly that our country comes first and we should be committed to making it a better place for us all and for posterity.
Once again, we applaud the President, Nana Akufo-Addo for the brilliant move. We feel proud we are Ghanaians and living in this very era.
