I will start with Mr. president’s inaugural speech I ask you to be citizens: citizens, not spectators; citizens, not subjects; responsible citizens building your communities and our nation.
Let us work until the work is done. Holy Scripture in Galatians 6:9 says “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
I assure you, my fellow citizens, who have entrusted me with this mandate, that I will advance my convictions with civility, I will serve the public interest with courage, I will speak for greater justice as well as compassion, and I will call for responsibility and I will live it, as well.
This is my solemn pledge.
I see exciting times ahead. The rule of law will be the underlying tenet of our lives; and the law will be applicable to all of us, and not just some.
We will have to work hard, harder than we have ever done before; and the hard work will be done by all of us, and not just some. There will be discipline in all sectors of our lives; and this applies to all of us, not just some.
Our public service will be accorded the dignity and respect it deserves, and be made to attract the bright young people it needs.
We acknowledge there will always be the need for a safety net for the vulnerable in our society, as in all other societies. Our nation will work when the marginalised and vulnerable are catered for and treated with respect.
Our elderly people will be recognised for their roles in building Ghana and assured of care in the dusk of their lives.
We should all recognise the danger we face by the alarming degradation of our environment and work to protect our water bodies, our forests, our lands and the oceans. We should learn and accept that we do not own the land, but hold it in trust for generations yet unborn and, therefore, have a responsibility to take good care of it and all it contains.
Mr president we can’t be citizens with empty stomach.
Mr president the rule of law is broken as your military officers and polices are abusing just a simple command lock down.
They have No respect for the aged or elderly , homeless and the poor they are been beaten like thieves instead of educating them.
State institutions that are to help educating our people are all asleep (NCCE)
The citizenry are on their own not all understand English and there is no other meduim of making them understand the purpose of the lock down I belive no one will endanger his or her life to contact the deadly COVID- 19 but necessity will compile them to,
government should provide for them then enforce the law that will be understandable.
Government can provide common sanitizers and nose mask for its citizens while the citizens are struggling for feed themselves and their families.
My appeal to the government of the day is he must make provisions for its citizens before enforcing the law.
The problem today in Ghana is
insecurity, economic hardship and health, sector crisis is bigger than COVID -19 so please don’t add 2 weeks dry fasting to it Mr president
