Shatta Wale has said in a recent video on social media that Ghana will be a nice place if becomes president.
He has, in the video, bemoaned the lackadaisical attitude of Ghanaians towards beautifying the environment.
According to him, if the white man was still in charge of the reins of governance, Ghana would be better.
He cited South Africa, as one country that has beautiful environment because the colonial masters stayed there for a long time.
“See black man. Black man no dey fit keep e own things well. You go white man e country, you go see things. Go see South Africa. Mandela said ‘let the white people stay here and do their work’,” he said in pidgin English.
“Ghana we dey here. No place fine. Ghana no fine. Forget them. Our leaders, dem for wake up. Ebe disgrace. We know too much,” he added.
Finally, he intimated that he has what it takes to change the country.
Make dem get me, President Shatta, make I rule the country. Like I go break people dema houses. Because if you dey plane inside, the way you see the houses, like nkokor binnn,” he said.
Poor sanitation has been one of the biggest problems in Ghana but since he assumed office, the President, Nana Akufo-Addo, has vowed to make Accra the cleanest city in West Africa.
Most people in Ghana build in unauthorised areas, especially in water ways and this usually lead to floods and other disasters.
Shatta Wale’s call to beautify the environment, therefore, is timely and resonates with the President’s resolve to make Accra cleaner.
