Hi Terribly Specific,
Please, let's be nice to these poor souls! They have already suffered enough of an ordeal! Water flows downhill, not uphill. It This is a natural law. It is not out of pleasure that some of them arrived in Libya by foot! If your conditions of life is such that you have not felt the need to throw all cautions to the winds and try your luck elsewhere, you have very good reasons to thank your God!
In thanking God, the last thing you should do is to look down on your less fortunate countrymen and women most of whom live on less than a dollar per day!
It is Akufo-Addo who stupidly said "All die be die!", not these innocent Ghanaians whose only crime is to seek greener pastures because of the stooges of imperialism like Mr. Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo! If you have anyone to blame, blame the Americans and the Danquah-Afrifa-Akufo Addo tradition that ensured the reversal of the efforts of Kwame Nkrumah to provide us with our economic independence!
When Nkrumah was fighting for all of us, those whose ancestors used to sell the rest of us as slaves to the Europeans did not agree, even though the intentions of Kwame Nkrumah were for the benefit of all of us:
“We in Africa who are pressing now for unity are deeply conscious of the validity of our purpose. We need the strength of our combined numbers and resources to protect ourselves from the very positive dangers of returning to colonialism in disguised forms. We need it to combat the entrenched forces dividing our continent and still holding back millions of our brothers. We need it to secure total African liberation. We need it to carry forward our construction of a socio-economic system that will support the great mass of our steadily rising population at levels of life which will compare with those in the most advanced countries” - Kwame Nkrumah, "Africa Must Unite!", 1960.
I avail myself of this opportunity, to extend to you, on behalf of the Odikro, Nana Akyea Mensah II, the assurances of our highest consideration.
Forward Ever! Backwards Never!!!
Secretary to the Odikro, Nana Akyea Mensah II,
