- Professor Gyampo has referred to Ghanaian politicians as "petty" and "self-seeking"
- He said Ghana needs to be rescued from the current crop of politicians
- He said both major political parties have either done the same in opposition, or plan to do the same when they're in power
Professor Ransford Yaw Gyampo, a senior lecturer at the University of Ghana, has expressed frustration at the way politics in Ghana appears to be a series of rehashed issues from days long gone.
Known for his tendency to comment on issues of public import on his social media profiles, Professor Ransford Yaw Gyampo has made a strong case for a change of mindset in Ghana's political scene.
Taking to his Facebook page, the Senior Professor at the University of Ghana wrote that the country is in need of being rescued from its current politicians because they are "petty, self seeking, self perpetuating and self aggrandizing".
"Everything happening in Ghana now has happened before. It's always a pay back time. It's always someone's time to chop. Who suffers? It's not the politician. It's the ordinary Ghanaian."
Professor Gyampo goes on to say that there's a lot of historical evidence that the current crop of Ghanaian politicians are only rehashing old feuds. He also expressed that both major political parties either did the same while in opposition, or plan on doing the same things if they attain political power.
He went on to say that he is thankful that, by and by, more and more Ghanaians are getting educated, and are now able to "read between the lines".
"So long as we have breadth, we would sensitize and pull the masses out of their dogmatic partisan ignorance. We will succeed in getting the country out of the hands of the crop of Ghanaian politicians who don't mean well. It would take time but we will get there."
He also urged Ghanaians to use the Easter festivities to pray for so the country is rescued from its current set of politicians.
