Research Fellow worried about political indiscipline

A Senior Research Fellow at the Legon Centre for International Affairs and Diplomacy has attributed the high rate of indiscipline in the Ghanaian society to the continued decline in national values.

Dr Vladimir Antwi-Danso says the canker that is breeding daily is making citizens shun values which must be held in high esteem.

He was responding to concerns raised over the disregard for the Ghana national anthem at state functions and other events, on Kumasi-based, Hello FM.

Every Ghanaian is expected to stop every activity, and remain attentive when the national anthem is either being played or sung, but the reverse has been the case in recent times.

Dr Antwi-Danso said “most of our national values are derailing because of the growing political indiscipline in our country.”xc

He noted that “some … individuals sit on various media platforms and dent the image of well-respected personalities in the country,” warning that the trend if is not checked, could breed negative practices in the younger generations.

Dr Antwi-Danso called on politicians to eschew undue partisanship and focus on issues which would enhance national development.

Speaking on the same subject, the General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana, Reverend Dr. Kwabena Opuni – Frimpong, said ‘political indiscipline’ was undermining national values, and appealed to leaders to lead exemplary lives for the younger generation to emulate them.
