One district One Factory

… and when we come into power, we will build a factory in each district. This will open up development to the people. The previous government has failed us. One district One factory!!
That was one of the promises shouted from the rooftops to the good people of Ghana. These people had suffered and were badly bruised from a previous government. A government that simply did things their own way without recourse to the very lives of the people who voted them into power.
I am using the phrase ” into power’ because we as a people have failed miserably. We have failed because we vote these guys into office and have to hold them accountable. We have failed because we wait on the government to wipe our butts when we are done using the loo. The one thing we are good at is sensationalism. We are very good at that. In the heat of the moment, each becomes a judge and jury and executioner. we torture ourselves on the pedestal of nonsensical nepotism and then turn around to cry “WOLF”. When these same guys, (note, I call them guys) come to us during election times, wooing us with colorful rubbish and enticing words, (like a first year JHS boy wooing a JHS girl), we are smitten and vote them back into office to rape and loot the motherland.
After the promise, we have read and heard some appointees make some ridiculous remarks- “Accra is on its way to being the cleanest city (where?); “my mandate is to use state resources to promote party activities among others”. Then I knew yes, the promises are being kept.
With the demolition of structures to make way for a small capacity cathedral which will suffer the fate of no-maintenance like other state buildings and even some private structures; with the mortgaging of bauxite to another sovereign country for a loan (heeerrrrrr), I dare to assume the people have been taken for a ride. A hell of a roller coaster.
The lies actually are coming from every corner, every district. It is worse than before. O yes! I have eaten and I am full so I am  talking garbage!
One District One Lie!!!
