On Friday, August 5, there will be a clash on the University of Ghana campus.
As a result, a car was set on fire, and the incident is said to have occurred at one of the traditional halls, Mensah Sarbah Hall.
The brawl was reportedly between Mensah Sarbah and Commonwealth Hall, their main campus rivals.
The true cause of the clashes was unknown at the time of this report, but the extent of damage was quite devastating.
In other news, Professor Ransford Gyampo, a renowned Ghanaian lecturer, has identified wicked leadership as Ghana’s biggest problem.
He announced this in a recent Facebook post on his personal social media page. The text of his post is as follows:
“The problem in Ghana is wicked leadership. Our political elites have service passports and they‘ve all traveled before. They’ve seen how others have developed their countries. But have hidden under the cloak of public ignorance about what pertains elsewhere, to do little or nothing for us.
There was a lot of hope as evidenced in the outcome of the 2016 elections. But there appear to be hopelessness now, with virtually every appointee preparing to survive after possible exit, while still nursing some infinitesimal hope of keeping on.
Publicly, a few paint an impression that a certain EIGHT is gonna be broken but in reality they are focused more on “packing” rather than governing in a manner that sacrifices the quest for legacy in governance. It’s not about breaking any EIGHT; and it’s not about packing for a possible exit. It’s about governing well and effectively discharging tasks reposed for the benefit of posterity.
How have others handled a situation like the one we have on hand? Our leaders have traveled and have seen it all.
A little bit of selflessness would do for our development and leave a great legacy.
