The vision of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah lives on even after decades of his death. Dr. Nkrumah master mined the greatest developmental plan the country has ever seen. His demise has thrown the country in crisis. This has turned the fortunes of the country around. Dr. Kwame Nkrumah would have done the following in 2015 to change the course of Ghana
Solve the Power Crisis Once and for All
Dr. Kwame Nkrumah would switch the nations domestic power supply to solar, solar is a renewable source of power which is abundant in the country and would not cost a Cedi to the government in terms of power generation. All this great idea needs is just a simple push from the government.
Stabilize the Cedi
Dr. Kwame Nkrumah would forget what the so-called the experts keep saying and would resort to common sense. Domestication is the only to strengthen the cedi not the financial experts.
Inspire Hope and Confidence
Ghanaians have lost hope in their government and the country. Dr. Nkrumah would first put his house in order by putting his government to order and then asking his government to lead by example. This would inspire hope and confidence in Ghanaians.
Get Rid of Corruption
Corruption is crippling the finances of the country. Corruption is gradually eating away the fortunes of the land. Dr. Nkrumah would not only fight corruption as leaders have done but defeat it and get rid of it.
Decongest the Regional Capitals
The ordinary leaders only make investments around the major regional capitals. The ripple effect is that these cities get congested increasing sanitation and health problems. Dr. Nkrumah would decentralize the regional capitals by creating new and modern cities from scratch. He would provide these cities the basic amenities to make them attractive to live in. The multiplying effect would be the decongestion of the regional capitals.
Develop the Private Sector
Ghana needs to create employment and get Ghanaians economically active. Dr. Nkrumah would build the capacity of the private sector by formulating policies and giving tax incentives and electricity to private companies to enable them employ more Ghanaian.
Avoid the IMF Bailout
The country’s economic problems demands African solutions. We understand our country better and can provide solutions that are sustainable. Dr. Nkrumah would simply get his ministers active and brainstorm to avoid an IMF bailout which will not benefit the ordinary Ghanaian at the end of the day.
