  1. I am not interested in politics but I have to totally agree with The Honourable Deputy Minister of the Ashanti Region, Joseph Yammin. Central Government of any country can only do so much. The future of Ghana is in the hands or each and every Ghanaian and others who make their home here.

    This country of Ghana belongs to Ghanaians and Ghanaians need to roll up their sleeves and start caring for Ghana. It is too easy to blame others, and blame can never be valid if you yourself do not do your part in working to solve problems. A wonderful U.S. President once said “Think not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country”.

    I therefore urge all Ghanaians to put aside party politics and join together to truly care for their environment, truly care for their neighbour and truly support their Government, no matter which party is in power.
