Former first lady, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings has decried the lack of discipline in the country, saying the situation is affecting Ghana’s development.
The leader and founder of the National Democratic Party (NDP) believe Ghanaians will not achieve national development until they begin to have a sense of discipline.
“There is no normalcy, nothing is normal. If someone throws rubbish behind your house, you don’t even know who you will report to because nothing is working and it shouldn’t be like that. We must be able to preserve the national moral fibre..,” the former first lady said.
Addressing party executives in the Brong Ahafo Region, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings called on Ghanaians to have a change of attitude.
“We have to appeal to the people’s sense of responsibility and discipline. If you don’t have discipline how can you tell someone to be disciplined. That sense of responsibility is so important. That is what will help us achieve our democracy. Otherwise our dream of achieving democracy will be an impossible feat,” she said.
This is not the first time concerns have been raised over the spate of indiscipline in the country.
The General Overseer of the Liberty House Christian Centre, Prophet Luke Barson earlier attributed the current challenges confronting the country to the growing immorality and lack of discipline among the citizenry.
“We cannot continue to behave the way we behave and expect that things will change for the better, we are losing our morals and becoming indiscipline each passing day and I dare say unless we restore back our morals and ensure discipline among the citizenry we as a people will continue to blame everybody but ourselves for our problems,” he stressed.
