NPP, Neo-Colonialism And Corrupt Leadership In Hig

The general Ghanaian society is corrupt to the core. Everyone in any position of authority wants to be bribed (Oh, these days it is called kick back) before they do what the are employed to do.
But the killer problem is our lack of planning. We talk big and spend more than we earn, but both at individual or national level, we do not analyse our actions. We just tackle what we see today as if there is no tomorrow.
You can see this from the Ghana@50 celebrations: when was to nation told we would celebrate the 50th anninversary in a more special way? I bet in less than 1 year. Was there any planning before 2006? I doubt it.
If you live without planning ahead, you spend more, and you become dependent on outside providers. That is one reason why even the Ghana@50 clothes had to be imported. I understand the minister said the local industries could not cope, while the industries say they could if they were given enough notice.
Another bad quality we have is the desire to be rich today. It stems from the lack of planning but most Ghanaians want to be rich yesterday, so they are in a hurry to catch up. But in reality, sustainable prosperity demands investing time, money and effort.
We have a long way to go, but at this pace Ghana@100 will still need Chinese clothes, and imported needles!
