Readers of YEN.com.gh have shared ideas on the things that Ghana needs at the moment, and some of the ideas are interesting, yet begging for action.
Some of the readers are suggesting that the governance style of Ghana needs to change from democratic rule to autocratic rule.
The readers were reacting to a YEN.com.gh survey question which simply asks: “What does Ghana need right now?”
This question has become topical following the recent celebration of Ghana’s 61-year anniversary, which attracted a lot of criticisms from some people.
To some Ghanaians, there was no point in the government spending money on Independence Day celebration because the country’s development is retrogressing.
The believe much more need to be done by the government, and the people for the country, especially in the wake of the security scare that has hit the country these days.
Here are the six key things the readers believe Ghana needs now:
1. Good Leadership: Awaafo Delwin Lazarus wrtoe: "Good leadership and clear detachment from partisan politics. We the youth have to do a #revolutionarychange because a change of gov't from NPP to NDC is not change."
Another reader, Nelson Fred, also wrote that a change of governance style to autocratic is the way to go.
2. Security: Armand Ngapali wrote: "Ghana is not pretty safe, so the main thing Ghana needs is security."
3. Constitutional Amendment: Emmanuel Luvzone Bedzrah wrote: "Probably amendment of the constitution, especially articles dealing [with] corruption. Not [forgetting] a new law 2 tackle the issue of [teenage pregnancy] in other [to] check over population."
4. Education: Sage Medi-Kode wrote: "Education system should be changed especially over loaded curriculum in S.H.S [because] when you reach Tertiary level some are not important instead of preparing students towards the Tertiary level we rather learn more and when reach there all become raw data."
5. Corruption: Nana Appiah wrote: "We must fight corruption with all our will. We must also strengthen the rule of law, and state institutions. He added: "To those who have given up on Ghana. Remember someone spilled his blood to protect this land and therefore it can never be easy for us to save Ghana from the hands of nation wreckers. We have to fight to the peril of our lives to save Ghana for the sake of our unborn generations."
6. J.J. Rawlings: Samuel Djan wrote: "In my opinion we should invite J J Rawllings to come and take back the seat again because he Is the best man for the country."
