Former Rector of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Professor Stephen Adei, says he stands by his comments in which he described President John Dramani Mahama and his Ministers as a bunch of liars.
Professor Adei is reported to have described the President and members of his government as liars when he spoke as a guest speaker during a marriage seminar in Tema.
But explaining his point on the Citi Breakfast Show on Wednesday, Professor Adei reiterated that “we live in a country where the President, the Ministers and everyone is lying including you the journalist…’’
According to him parents lie to their children from the beginning. “Parents tell their children I am going here when the child is crying…; we start from the beginning lying to each other and it has gone up to become a national psyche and this does not breed no trust,’’ he said.
“The President, the Ministers and everyone is lying and that must stop if we are going to make it because we need trust,’’ he opined.
He also said until we all face the truth that we are all living a lie, then we can’t move on as a nation. “If we are not going to face the truth that the President, the Minister and all of us are living a lie we will not even begin…’’
He noted that what Ghana needs is truth. ‘’Let us face the truth and then rally ourselves around to really do what it takes for our nation to become the land we are looking for,’’ he concluded.
He is of the view that although it was going challenging, “if we want to have a good economy and develop the country, we have to buckle up as a country.”
The educationist further called for a change in leadership behaviour and adopt a national approach to governance.
