Surfing through posts and comments on various social media platforms, it appears over 50% of Ghanaians are already tired of politicians because of their blatant equalisation stance and selfishness in how they elevate their respective parties over Ghana. And this goes to both the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) as some are crying for a strong third force.
A while ago, socialite, screen diva and talented actress, Yvonne Nelson, had descended heavily on politicians again. The vociferous TV personality felt that politicians are maneuvering their way through the psyche of Ghanaians with their ‘superior’ command over the Queen’s Language.
The outspoken actress said Ghanaian Politicians resort to the use of English Language in order to steal from the people because most Ghanaians have issues with comprehension of the Queen’s language.
Per her narration, most Ghanaians do not have a better appreciation of spoken words, and, therefore, these politicians aim at using English for their activities and dealings just so the people will not comprehend what they are doing. After all, arguably, the majority of Ghanaians have never had any form of education!
She had lamented;
“English English….. but majority of Ghanaians don’t understand English, they stand before the people and speak what the people don’t understand. Serving the people? Naaa make them understand you! Using ENGLISH to steal..from the people who queue to vote for u”.
Do you think Yvonne Nelson had a genuine case or she missed out?
