Five areas Ghanaians need to take seriously

Five areas Ghanaians need to take seriously

Since its independence from colonial rule on March 6, 1957, Ghana has had its fair of successes and challenges as a nation.

After 61 years, it continues to deal with issues that appear to hinder its growth in several areas, and these have invariably affected its chances of growth.

YEN.com.gh has listed some five areas every Ghanaian has to pay attentions to and the need to take those areas seriously if the country is expected to be recognised as self-sufficient and very self-reliant.

1. Health:

The attitude of Ghanaians in dealing with their health is appalling as they turn to visit prayer camps instead of visiting health facilities to seek medical attention. Government however needs to focus on improving the situation in the various health facilities to ease up the pressure at the facility and equip them with better logistics.

2. Sanitation:

Is this dream of making Accra the cleanest city in Africa achievable with the volume of filth generated each passing day? The attitude of Ghanaians in proper waste disposal is something that should be taken seriously because it will get to a point where the filth we generate as a nation could swallow us up

3. Freedom of speech:

This right, despite it playing a role in helping put government on its toes should be watched. Ghanaians have made it a habit to abuse this right, as they always insult government officials on policies and other important issues mostly out of ignorance.

4. Rural-Urban migration:

As a result of rural-urban migration, most of the youth who are the driving force of the country move down south thus, contributing to the high statistics of streetism, teenage pregnancy, slum dwellings, armed robbery and commercial sex work.

5. Avoiding partisan politics:

What we seem to forget is that Ghana and its development comes before any political party and its policies, Ghanaians need to pay a lot of attention to this area because we seem to be getting it all wrong when it comes to doing politics.
