Hold your horses, we are not done with the campaign promises yet. After all, December 7 is still a bit far off and politicians are ever willing to squeeze everything out of the electorate.
Well, the People’s National Convention (PNC) Presidential Candidate says he would introduce ‘Thinking’ as a subject of study at the basic level if he is given the mandate to govern Ghana.
Yes, you read that right.
According to Dr. Edward Mahama, there is a deficit of good thinking habits among Ghanaian youth and leaders and he thinks this will solve that.
Mind you, he added "leaders" to the group of people with bad thinking habits.
Dr. Mahama continued to explain that the economic condition of the country which was caused by the "mismanagement" of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) and attitude of some Ghanaian youth point to the lack of right thinking.
"Thinking" as a subject would focus on teaching Ghanaian children about the resources the country has as well as how these resources could be harnessed for the benefit of the whole country.
How the presidential candidate would create a syllabus for "thinking" with the current crop of "bad thinking leaders" beats us, but hey, it is indeed the political season.
PS: Edward Mahama is the same presidential candidate who promised to give EVERY Ghanaian a gold coin if they vote for him. That's about 23 million gold coins.
