The chairman of Doscar Group, HRH Oscar Yao Doe (King Oscar) today xrayed the negative mentality of Ghana’s leadership in the past years, which has impeded the country’s development for almost two decades now. In a personal post he did on social media today, which he titled ‘Our Painful Story Since Year 2000 After President Rawlings Left Power Gracefully’, the businessman and philanthropist wrote…
“The political elites keep collecting moneys from businesses and wealthy individuals to fund their political ambitions when they needed it most, especially when they find themselves in the Opposition Bench. At that moment, they are your Great, Great friends and your businesses. Then, when they get that temporary power with extreme privileges fully funded by the state; including free accommodation, free fuel, free travelling expenses, free free free, at the expense of Tax Payers.
Then, all of a sudden, their memories are wiped out immediately into the dustbin. Then, they feel soo foolishly and hollow. They even think they have become powerful than God!
Wow, Wow, Wow, (they would say), and they foolishly think they have state apparatus in their pockets. And that they can use it to harass and destroy businesses and some targeted individuals on their Advance List.
The sad aspect is that they destroy the same businesses they have been milking money from; including the banks they have collapsed deliberately.
This kind of mindset is outdated! We cannot create the needed environment to generate wealth and shared prosperity for our people with this kind of 1960s & 1970s mentality,
Ghana deserves better. Getting power doesn’t
translate automatically into personal ownership of the nation.
Our leaders are not realizing that our state institutions have become so classic and so noble. Our institutions has become the symbol of hope, especially the security institutions; (National Security ,BNI, Army Intelligence Units, Police Intelligence Units and EOCO). So, they cannot be successfully used for personal vendetta. Their allegiance is to the State of Ghana Only!
I salute our state institutions, especially the security forces and our civil society organisations, religious organisations and the media organisations, and our Creative Arts industry for standing tall!!! Kudos! May God bless them all for their sacrifices and service to the nation. Ayekoo! Ayekoo! Ayekoo! Ghana Shall Rise Again!”
