Ghana the tragic state

Corruption is something we talk about, is something we complain about, it something who’s negative impact we recognize, it is something even the corrupt acknowledge is a bad thing.
But the irony and the tragedy at once is that dose who engages in corruption love it. The tragedy of once is that those who don’t engage in corruption accommodate it. Our level of tolerance for corruption in Ghana is amazing.
...A long time ago ma Dad of Great memory(David Castro Baidoo) AKA the philosopher once told me that it’s in the nature of Ghanaian to hang the small thieves and elect the great once to public offices. That is what we do in Ghana, thus why we remain poor as a country.
Today men and women are running away from their country.When u you at Ghana today, the richest men and women are those who occupy Public Office.
We live in a country that we celebrate THIEVES and vilify good men and women thus the tragedy of Ghana. While every continent have move to the right direction we still remain in the hands of IMF, the tony Blair’s etc and this remains a scar in the minds of poor Ghanaians.
We live in a country while our young women upon attaining puberty cannot afford sanitary pads but our public officers have IPADS which they don’t even know how to use it.
We live in a country today while our leaders who preside over our health sectors have no Faith in the health sector, When they are sick they runaway to seek treatment in Germany, South Africa, India etc. Even the health ministers don’t have faith in the health sector.
We live in a country where the political leaders don’t have faith in our education system, they bring unto us what they call free education but they can never dare take their children to those schools.
