Ghanaianism Must Unite Us

The country which we live in was fought for us through the blood and
toil of our forefathers. Over the years, we have had some number of
political turmoils which have been major set backs to the development
of the country. We can talk of the 1966, 1972, '79 and '81 Coups.

Interestingly, the reasons for these political turmoil had only
benefitted some few people because they(reasons) did not represent the
collective view of the good people of Ghana. The masterminders ended
up looting collossal amount of money which would have been used to
develop our nation which further worsen our condition of livng. The
end has always left us divided, further polarising the political

Blindly, we have followed the political parties and lost our sense of
nationalism. We have forgetten the first 2 lines of our National
Pledge which goes like ''I promise on my Honor, To be Faithful and
Loyal to Ghana My Motherland'' and adopted that of the Political
Parties if there is any. It is very suprising and disappointing to
see some men & women go to whatever extent to ''die'' for their
political party at the peril of our Great Nation, Ghana.

Fellow Ghanaians, as we all await the Final Verdict of the Highest
Court, let us remember that ''Ghanaianism Must Unite all Of Us''.
Before we act untoward for any Politician, let us remember the waakye
seller, the Kooko seller, the Beans seller. Let us remember the
future of our Kids and put our country first for we have no other
country of our own. We should remember that from Gambaga to Accra,
From Elubo to Aflao, we are one people with a common destiny.

Dr. Kwagyir Aggrey of blessed memory once said "You can play a
tune of sorts on the black keys only and you can
play a tune of sorts on the white keys only; but for
perfect harmony, you must use both the black and the white keys." We
are one people with a common destiny so we should maintain the peace
ourselves and live in harmony even after the Supreme Court's verdict
come 29th of August, 2013.
