Renowned Ghanaian musician, Okyeame Kwame has encouraged his fellow citizens to focus on self-improvement rather than placing the burden of national development solely on politicians.
The musician's message comes at a time when political discourse and expectations are running high amidst the #occupyjulorbihouse demonstration, telling Ghanaians that lasting change begins with individual efforts.
Responding to a question about which political leader would be the best choice for Ghana's future, Okyeame Kwame asserted that no single leader, no matter how capable, can single-handedly fix all of the country's challenges. In his tweet, he declared,
You, Naa, you will fix the country. Starting with your health, then mindset, then your family, then your work.

Many Ghanaians expressed frustration with the musician's sentiments, believing that his remarks exonerated the political leadership from accountability for the country's challenges.
