A renowned Ghana economist and Independent Presidential Aspirant Dr. Sam Ankrah has called Ghanaians not to relent on their quest to change the style of politics being played in the country and concentrate on personal and national growth.
At a student Inclab conference at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology themed “Fourth Revolution Leadership, the financial expert said, if Ghanaians are waiting for the government to solve the over 60-year-old economic problem, the country will continue to retard in progress for another 60 years without a solution.
He said, it might sound harsh, but the odds are stuck against the current political system in Ghana, and knowing the situation in the other countries.
He says the democratic structures and processes have helped political representatives and public officeholders to fail in their seats because the general population inadvertently contributes to the problems by being spectators instead of citizens.
Dr. Ankrah says most people do not believe him when he says posterity will judge Ghanaians when they fail to seize the opportunity to query leaders.
“Everything rises and falls on leadership, most people do not believe me when u say that but that’s the truth, the more you try to do so in life, the more you will find that leadership makes the difference. Any endeavor you can undertake that involves other people will live or die depending on leadership.
He said organizations will speed up growth when personnel determines the potential, relationship determines the morale, structure determines the size, vision determines the direction and leadership determined the success of the organization.
