Our leaders lack Vision 7/31/2007
Free speaking Charles Kofi Wayo, leader and chairman of Ghana''s baby political party, the United Renaissance Party (URP), says for lack of a complete vision, conscience and moral ethics, both present and past governments of the country have failed to alleviate the sufferings of the masses.

According to Wayo, with the exception of the late President Kwame Nkrumah and his Convention People''s Party, all other governments of the state, including the New Patriotic Party''s, have failed miserably to accord the citizenry the needed economic and social respect in terms of development.

The maverick Ghanaian politician preached that until the leadership of the state avoids greed as well as corruption and come to terms with the principles of God, it will continue to mess up with the God-given natural resources, which will never make the country see the light of development and progress.

He said, "Because the leadership of the country is not God-fearing, they will continue to enrich themselves with the natural resources without seeking the welfare of the poverty stricken citizenry."

The sensational politician stressed that, though the country has been endowed with enormous natural resources, lack of good political leadership has contributed immensely to most of its economic woes. "Why should our country wallow in abject poverty when we have enormous natural resources?" he asked rhetorically.

Referring to leaders and presidents of the African continent as opportunists, he stated emphatically that, "Most African leaders today are not the real politicians mandated by God to redeem the people, but are mere political entrepreneurs who win "political power to amass wealth."

Addressing over a thousand farmers in Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo region, he urged Ghanaians not to look out for people who have paper qualifications to rule the nation but rather ensure that people who seek political office are committed, willing and le¬nient enough to solve the numerous economic problems.

"The time has come for Ghanaians to repose their confidence in a formidable and thinking political party like the URP that will adequately address their economic problems for the better," Wayo proclaimed. His visit to the region was to can¬vass votes for his party as well as acquaint himself with the problems farmers have been going through.

He said, to help solve problems of farmers and enhance their livelihood, his party, if voted to power, would introduce agricultural administration, whereby the farmer would have direct contact with agric extension officers regularly to address their problems on a daily basis.

According to him, his regime would pay huge subsidies on farm inputs, grant cheap loans to farmers during the major farming seasons and offer ready markets for various produce, even long before they are harvested.

The farmers who had gathered to catch a glimpse of the often touted rich Ghanaian politician became disappointed after he announced that, "For a start, I will give you 20 million cedis as a loan facility and in a week''s time, I will add some more." This statement was met with mixed reactions as the farmers had anticipated that Wayo would give each of them free cash that day.
