Nigerian business mogul, Chief Dele Momodu has said Ghanaians do not appreciate the successes the country has attained since its independence in 1957.
Speaking on Starr FM’’s “The Lounge” hosted by ace broadcaster Kwaku Sakyi-Addo on Friday, the Ovation magazine owner said Ghanaians continue to underestimate the progress the country has made in the past 5 decades. Having been in exile himself due to lack of some rights in Nigeria at the time, he said: “Your democracy is so strong. You abuse your President anyhow but you don’t disappear and appear.”
Lucky enough to have travelled all around the world, Chief Dele urged Ghanaians to count their blessings and stop bashing its leaders since Ghana’s democracy is the envy of Africa. He went on to dismiss claims that he has a special affection for Ghana’s President, John Mahama.
“I have always spoken about the progress in Ghana. I started from the Rawlings' time, I did same under Kuffuor. Just that this time around people are more sensitive, so the least thing, they say you support Mahama,” he said
Kwaku Sakyi-Addo also had a conversation with Poetra Ansantewa, a spoken word artiste and entrepreneur and chief executive of Databank, Kwadwo Addai Mensah who both shared a bit about their background and interests, as well as their thoughts on democracy in Africa.
