My Beloved Contry
MY BELOVED COUNTRY
The country I am born to is the grand mother of Africa and her name is Ghana.
Ghana is a peaceful and a religious country. Any form of worship is accepted in Ghana.
I love Ghana but the political system in my country is schemed in such a way that to me
It’s not very nice. Politics to me is a game that you either win or loose. In Ghana politics
Is being played to build wealth, there is politics at the church, in schools, even at homes.
But I love the multi party politics in Ghana; you can choose what party you love.
The 50th anniversary is celebrated to remember 50 years of independence from Britain.
It was celebrated all over the country, people went out to march and have fun. People
Were happy but I’m not. This is because if at the age of 50, your father is still struggling in the wilderness then there is no need to celebrate his birth rather, his death day. In my own view I think the 20mil dollars used to celebrate the anniversary should rather be used to alleviate the poverty crippled citizens, to give electricity to my lovely village, to build hostel at affordable prices for hustlers to live in. I think when this is done; there will be fewer loads on our shoulders to carry. The anniversary meant nothing to me in general.
Democracy is very important to every country to develop because autocracy retards development, destroys properties and claims lives. It is very important to practice democracy in all our daily lives; in my home there is democracy, it’s also in my church.
Young people are evolved in politics because Ghana is a democratic country. Examples
To give, I actually can’t but I think as we can vote in Ghana at age 18 then young people are involved.
At my school there is democracy right from the classrooms to the authorities. In times of choosing prefect, I will say it’s democratic because we cast votes to elect them. At school I learnt about democracy through our social studies and government teachers.
I remembered around last year when I went to check on my fathers building and when I got there, I saw some guys trying to brake into it, I went straight to inform the police which led to their arrest. I went later to inform my daddy about it and he was happy with it-he is still proud of what I did because I saved part of his little wealth.
About my countryKNOW MORE ABOUT GHANA HERE
hana is a country located in West Africa which practices a democratic system of government. Its form of Government is unitary. This means that all powers are from the central government alone just that the local assemblies help it to implement all polices.
It had its independence on the 6th of March, 1957, under the leadership of Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. For this reason, 6th March every year is set aside for the celebration of that great achievement. This year’s anniversary was the 50th of its kind and was really celebrated to its highest maximum. Presidents of other African countries like Nigeria, Mali and others were invited to grand the occasion. The duke of Britain was also there to make the celebration a history. This was because the British were our former colonial masters.
The celebration gave every Ghanaian the sense of unity, peace and progress and also encouraged all Ghanaians to do the best they can to make Ghana the star of Africa which was why the occasions slogan was “championing Africa’s excellence”.
Democracy is of a very great importance to me. This is because it gives every individual the chance to actively participate in the development of the nation. It also protects the rights and liberties of the people and prevents arbitrary rule.
Young people in Ghana actively participate in the nation’s political life. This occurs in different forms. The government sometimes sends delegations to various schools to gather the view of the young people in the schools on an issue of national interest. Political parties also have youth wings which gives the young people more chance to participate in the nation’s politics.
At school, the teaching of subjects like government and social studies also broadens ones mind about the democratic issues of the nation.
One feels he or she has an influence when he or she attains the age of 18. An example is that at this age, the individual can vote in national elections to elect even a president and begins to have a great influence in individual, social, religious and national issues.
