After every given action taken, there is an effect which can either be positive or negative.
It is prudent for Africans to delve into a very interesting topic that we have always swept under the carpet.
Some critical thinkers have always opined that behind any attitude that does not make sense, there’s an influence somewhere. Arguably, as a race, we have a problem because we hardly celebrate each other. Instead of fiercely criticising each other without any profound remedy, we should always give constructive criticisms.
Once upon a time, in a sermon of the Founder and General Overseer of Action Chapel International, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams told the Ghanaian populace to be generational thinkers like Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Nelson Mandela, etc instead of just thinking about “only ourselves”. The revered preacher made it known that we should always envisage the possibilities of leaving something tangible for the unborn generation instead of just selfishly thinking about our present selves alone.
Also, he cautioned how we need to shy away from politicising issues in Ghana and work towards our common future. He cited an example that Americans and the Chinese have collectively raised billionaires to help their economy and it’s time to also groom some Ghanaians to be millionaires and billionaires irrespective of their political affiliation.
He further proposed mass awareness and the need to psyche our minds and renew it towards endless possibilities. He added that we should put a stop to the blame games and the acts of denials and renew our minds towards prosperity.
As a Ghanaian or African, do you see unnecessary criticisms as a worrying trend in our society?
