No government possesses a magic wand, Stop the #FixTheCountry campaign— Former President warns Ghanaians

Former President John Agyekum Kufuor has called on the #FixTheCountry campaigners to be truthful to themselves on issues pertaining to the state of the country since time immemorial.

According to him, the campaigners are pretenders and are acting as if the country was better off and a particular government has come to destroy it.

Speaking in an interview on Kofi TV, Former President Kufuor noted no government possessed a magic wand that could easily transform the economy and as such the #FixTheCountry agenda should be revisited and revised.

He explained that the population kept expanding and the country still depended on the same resources it had 64 years ago which made it difficult for any government to transform the country to a better state that it wished for.

“When did we finish fixing the nation that all of a sudden we are acting as through it was once fixed and someone destroy it? We are still building it. Ghanaians are a lot. When we had independence in 1957, we were only six million.

“As I speak now, I believe we are almost 40 million. When we add all those that have travelled. We are only 64 years. The land on which we live hasn’t expanded. Our natural resources haven’t multiplied,” he explained.

He said the country was currently suffering from its decision to introduce certain foreign culture and practices without first subjecting it to proper scrutiny.

“We are a developing country. We have leadership challenges and we are still making use of the little we have. All the challenges we currently have are because we rushed to make some hasty decisions. At a point, we did not live within our means. We didn’t plan properly.

“We adopted certain foreign culture and ideologies that we didn’t study well enough. We didn’t understand yet we adopted them. We should stop saying fix the country as though there is a magic wand we could just cast and everything will be better,” he added.
