Awarding winning Ghanaian sports journalist, Saddick Adams has taken a swipe at musician Okyeame Kwame for telling Ghanaians to fix themselves.
Okyeame Kwame while reacting to a question from media personality Naa Ashokor on who can fix Ghana said Ghanaians need to fix themselves first.
The seasoned rapper said Ghanaians in their own collective ways should fix themselves and stop blaming politicians for the for the country’s bad state.
“You Naa you will fix the country . Starting with your health , then mindset , then your family , then your work . If we all start a small light in our little corners, Ghana will become bright.”
“All the names you have mentioned can also light a small flame. However, Ghana cannot be fixed by one man . No messiah in politics.”
Saddick Adams in an indirect response to the rapper said he shouldn’t think that because he is well to do and can do things for himself, everybody in Ghana can do same.
“We can afford shock absorbers and dig boreholes in our houses but the other things we cannot individually afford is the reason we collectively pay taxes to a body called [government] entrusted with all our powers to use it for such other important purposes.”
“And the fact that you can afford shocks so you don’t care about bad roads doesn’t mean you’re completely safe.”
“The trotro driver who couldn’t afford shocks will fall into a gaping pot hole, veer off and crash into your car, then you have to build your own hospital to fix your damaged jaw because there’s no bed in the public hospital. And so on and so forth.”
