Saddick Adams, a sports journalist, has subtly attacked artist Okyeame Kwame for saying that Ghanaians must improve themselves in order to assure the success of their nation.
In a cited response to media personality Naa Ashoklor’s tweet, Okyeame Kwame asserted that there is no political messiah who can rescue the nation from its current predicament.
According to his logic, the average Ghanaian can secure the growth of the nation by taking care of their mentality, their health, their families, and subsequently their jobs.
“You, Naa, you will fix the country. Starting with your health, then your mindset, then your family, then your work, if we all start a small flame, all the names you have mentioned can also light a small flame. However, Ghana cannot be fixed by one man. No messiah in politics,’’ Okyeame Kwame wrote.
Saddick Adams, who also voiced his view regarding the musician’s Twitter, found Okyeame Kwame’s tweet to be inappropriate.
Saddick Adams pointed out in a tweet sighted by 1Family Radio that just because the artist is wealthy and is capable of buying certain things on his own, it doesn’t mean that everyone else in the country can do the same.
“We can afford shock absorbers and dig boreholes in our houses, but the other things we cannot individually afford are the reason we collectively pay taxes to a body called government entrusted with all our powers to use it for such other important purposes,’’ Saddick wrote.
“And the fact that you can afford shocks so you don’t care about bad roads doesn’t mean you’re completely safe.’’
“The trotro driver who couldn’t afford shocks will fall into a gaping pothole, veer off, and crash into your car; then you have to build your own hospital to fix your damaged jaw because there’s no bed in the public hospital,’’ Saddick added.
