The youths of Ghana is ready to fix the country if the leaders are not – Akwoyire Patrick Bugayire writes

The youths of Ghana is ready to fix the country if the leaders are not – Akwoyire Patrick Bugayire writes.

“Ghana, our beloved country is free forever” ones said by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah on the occasion of independence day declaration on 6th March, 1957 Knowing very well that this our motherland is rich in Natural resources unlike other African countries. After the declaration, there was hope that Ghana will one day be declared self reliant. Ghana for decades is been seen as a beacon of democracy and a reference point for other world leaders when it comes to political development and social life. Our country never lacked, we have all it takes to build even a sky road for transportation of goods and services. Religious growth is exceptional and characterized by a lot of prophesies which could help our leaders to work hard for Ghana and seek Devine intervention to solve the country’s needs.

But what are we seeing? “ We have no reason to be poor, God didn’t put us here to be poor” by H.E Nana Akuffo Addo in a campaign tour to canvass votes for electoral wins. The trust the youth have for our leaders have always been the greatest respect one would acquire. Most of the Youth sacrifice their resources, time and integrity to ensure that by hook or crook, people are chosen to spearhead the development of the country. Many lost their lives with others becoming permanently disabled. Some lose their job because of political difference just to ensure that, the needful is done.

Upon these struggles and sacrifices by the youth, little do they get in return apart from been recruited as party foot soldier’s for the purpose of committing political violence during election period. Any change in political leadership does not reflect in a better living conditions of the growing youth because, the appointments in governance do not favour the youth. Those that occupy ministerial and other top government offices never wish good for the youth meanwhile, for every country to develop, much depends on the effort of the youth.

The worse of it all is the contradiction of the Constitution that tend to give more powers to those ready for selfish interest. For instance, article 55(10) “ Subject to the provisions in this Constitution, every citizen of voting age has the right to participate in Political activity intended to influence the composition and policies of the government” and article 17(1)(2) stress that no person shall be discriminated on any grounds and that we are all equal before the law.

If these portions of the Constitution is anything to go by, then what is the essence of article 62(b) “A person shall not be qualified for election as the President of Ghana unless he has attained the age of forty years”. This is a clear violation of the fundamental human rights of the Ghanaian citizen as against personal interest and as such the age factor in that portion of the Constitution needs to be amended to give equal opportunities for all.

The youths for sometime now is tired of the kind of Monopoly in the governance system in Ghana which does not create any opportunity for a forward March. The time for the Ghanaian youth to fix the country is now and we are ready to fix it with all our might.
