- Ghanaians in the Diaspora are being charged to stay away from complaining about Ghana’s challenges
- Deputy trades minister says government hates persons who are addicted to whining
The deputy minister of trade and industry, Robert Ahomka Lindsay is calling on Ghanaians in the Diaspora to desist from complaining about the problems in the country and rather refocus their energies on the best ways to help make Ghana a prosperous nation.
Taking his turn at the Diaspora Homecoming Summit in Accra, the outspoken minister argued that government was just not into persons and critics who find pleasure in whining.
“Nobody likes whiners, people that spend all the time whining all the time really get on people’s nerves so stop whining. There is never such a thing as a shortcut. Shortcut inevitably leads to long journey and headache… if you tell somebody I’ve got two weeks only to do something, they will take your money and chop it,” he revealed.
The comments by the deputy minister comes in the wake of government’s resolve to ensure that Ghanaians in the Diaspora are given the chance to vote in general elections – this follows the coming into force of the ROPAL law.
