How Did We Get Here?

How did Ghana get to this level of lawlessness? No one should start the blame game because we the citizens are complicit in this lawless state that we find ourselves in. Why am i saying so? It seems we glorify mediocrity in this country too much. We allow people to cheat the system and get away with it. We heap praises on people with their ill gotten wealth. We dont question their sources of wealth, and we are ready and willing to bask in their so called glory. We call such people names such as “honorable”, “master” etc etc and we are also ready to kowtow to their whims and caprices to the detriment of the individual who is at a disadvantage.

It seems the society has lost so much confidence in the security services to the extent that they will not hesitate to attack police stations and other security installations with the slightest attempt by these agencies to maintain law and order. We shield wrong doers and prevent the laws of the land from working on them. Someone knows some big man who also knows someone in a position of influence who can easily convince the judicial authorities to drop a case against an accused person. What happens afterwards? The people will surely bid their time and wait for the opportunity to exact their pound of flesh if justice is not served. These incidents of wanton indiscipline being experienced in several parts of the country must be curbed with the necessary legal actions that they deserve. The government must come down hard on all these miscreants in the society who want to take Ghana back to the Dark Ages. The courts must apply the laws to the letter. Ghana is not a jungle state.

Several cases of vandalism against police stations, military personnel and innocent citizens are not justified. We must rise up against this serious canker of indiscipline that has reared its ugly head and nip it in the bud. Each one of us has a role to play in this crusade. The security agencies must turn a new leaf and do the right things for the citizens to have confidence in them once again. I will like to ask again, How did we get here? #GhanaMustWorkAgain
