Stop pretending as if the system in Ghana was working and someone came to destroy it — Ex-Prez Kufour to Ghanaians

Former President His Excellency John Agyekum Kufour has slammed #FixTheCountry online protesters to stop pretending as if the system in Ghana was fully working and a certain government came to power to destroy it.

Ex-President Kufour speaking in an interview said no government has a magic stick that could easily change the economy so the rationale behind the #fixthecountry should be revised.

He believes the country is still in the process of developing and gradually the system in Ghana will start working.

“When did we finish fixing the nation that all of a sudden we are acting as though it was once fixed and someone destroys it? We are still building it. Ghanaians are a lot. When we had independence in 1957, we were only 6 million.

“As I speak now, I believe we are almost 40 million. When we add all those that have traveled. We are only 64 years. The land on which we live hasn’t expanded. Our natural resources haven’t multiplied,” he told Kofi Adomah.

“We are a developing country. We have leadership challenges and we are still making use of the little we have. All the challenges we currently have are because we rushed to make some hasty decisions. At a point, we did not live within our means. We didn’t plan properly.

“We adopted certain foreign culture and ideologies that we didn’t study well enough. We didn’t understand yet we adopted them. We should stop saying fix the country as though there is a magic wand we could just cast and everything will be better,” he established.
