As it happened the animal farm,an interesting novel written by George Owell, where some animals were considered more important than others, it is not different in the Ghanaian political system. In Ghana, a section of the population are considered as more important whiles others are marginalized and treated with disrespect.
Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson, has respectfully asked the president of the republic of Ghana,his Excellency Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo to at least find time out of his busy schedules and give the ordinary Ghanaian a listening ear.
The actress in a recent Tweeter post made it known that since the president came into power, he has been meeting the press on several occasions but it seems the narrative has not changed and for that reason it would be better this time around to meet the ordinary Ghanaians like students, Carpenters, drivers, waakye sellers,tailors,hair dressers,mothers etc to have an interactive session.
“Mr President, when are Ghanaians getting a Q&A session/time with you?. Not journalists, or media personalities, im talking about (students, carpenters,drivers, doctors, waakye sellers, tailors,hair dressers, mothers.etc) we have alot of questions” she posted on her Tweeter page.
Yvonne can not understand why a country that attained independent sixty-five years ago and is endowed with many resources is still crawling in terms of development.
One of the top most worries of the actress has to do with the state of our public hospitals and health centers. Some hospitals in the country do have enough beds, ambulances and other equipments to ensure quality health care.
“Ghanaians have QUESTIONS! Mine is about our health sector! It breaks my heart. Hurts. Our public hospitals cant handle the numbers! Do our leaders visit hospitals like korle bu? There arent enough BEDS!!!!”
These and many more questions concerning the well-being of every Ghanaian are what the actress wants the president to put aside his ‘political spectacles’ and give a listening ear.
