Former Colony Faces Frustrations in Early Nationhood

Vision for the future is the only way that a nation can progress. Author Okyere Bonna brings readers an accurate depiction of the lack of vision in Ghana, Africa, and offers the vision that citizens of Ghana need to advance their country in his new book, A New Agenda for Ghana: Building a Nation on Vision and Ideas (Volume 1) (now available through Author House) and A New Agenda for Ghana: Building Bridges for Positive Change (Volume 2) (now available through Libras).

Though it’s fi fty years since Ghana became a nation, it still operates with a “residual colonial mentality,” Bonna says. This book is about the political mismanagement that has resulted in this lack of progress, as well as the frustrations of Ghanaians.

“The frustration over how the establishment is running the nation is heartbreaking to say the least . . . In these pages, I provide numerous examples that prove how the current government is handling economic, social, and political issues to the detriment of the people and posterity,” Bonna says.

Bonna urges Ghanaians to read this book before voting in the 2008 elections. He says the insights provided will lead to more informed choices at the polls. “Those who are supposed to uphold and administer laws of the land are now the big breakers of the rules and laws,” he says. “Leaders must lead by example. The president we elect in 2008 must be a visionary. The presidency must be about ideas and principles instead of thievery and personalities. It must seek to lift the nation’s sight and spirit and move them to higher grounds. Our new president must strengthen the capacities of anticorruption agencies. The government must honor our values and lead us into the future and make us proud. The government must set a standard of good and responsive governance for our age and ages to come and build and strengthen institutions throughout our nation.”
