Africans Have For Long Tolerated Bad And Corrupt Leadership; It Is Regrettable- Dr Kofi Amoah
Business Mogul, Dr. Kofi Amoah says Africans have for long tolerated bad and corrupt leadership, a development that is largely responsible for the underdevelopment of African countries in spite of the abundance of resources at their disposal. The celebrated Ghanaian businessman and sports enthusiast says he has observed a “long period of continuous acceptance of bad and corrupt leadership by Africans, who inhabit the resource-richest landmass in the world but are the poorest in knowledge, standard of living, people welfare, and life expectancy.
Dr. Amoah who has over the last decade dedicated his time and resources to empowering the youth has been unambiguous about the issues of joblessness and import dependency particularly in Ghana
Reacting to a 2019 video from Kenya Television TV on leadership and integrity, Dr. Amoah was of the view that although good governance has been an issue for many countries in the world, he finds it regrettable that the African citizens continue to accept it wholeheartedly without reservation.
See below the full statement
The dissatisfaction of Africans in the various countries are identical and caused by identical unacceptable behavior of the leaders and the sheepish acquiescence of the led
The elite (ie the people with the means and enlightenment) must jettison the comfort of their privileged positions and muster the courage to unite and save their nations and continent
Nations going astray in their governance is not new nor limited only to Africa
What’s new and baffling is the very long period of continuous acceptance of bad and corrupt leadership by Africans, who inhabit the resource-richest landmass in the world but are the poorest in knowledge, standard of living, people welfare and life expectancy…
THIS CAN ONLY CHANGE IF THE ELITE COMMIT THEMSELVES, THEIR RESOURCES AND THEIR LIVES TO THE RESCUE
No one else will have the interest nor frankly the responsibility to do so…
