There’s no agenda to propel nat’l devt- Zilla Limann alleges

Zilla Limann, daughter of former President Dr Hilla Limann, has bemoaned the lack of a national agenda to propel the nation’s growth and development and alleged that the nation is still marking time due to lack of leadership clear cut agenda or plan to be followed by successive political parties.

She insisted that the nation lacked an agenda by successive governments to propel growth and development but the nature of leadership over the years was thwarting the nation’s growth and development agenda.

 Zilla Limann, the daughter of Ghana’s third President Dr Hilla Limann, who ruled Ghana from September 24, 1979 to December 31, 1981, maintained that “I definitely think that we should have a national agenda and a national plan because from what we’ve seen in the past, how many years, all we see is one political party takes over, they have all these great agenda and plans they want to undertake, they commence them, another party takes over and the agenda and plans are all thwarted.

“New agenda and plans begin again so we don’t move, we are marking time, we go forward, we come back, we go forward, the only key for growth and development is an agenda and plans that will be followed by all political parties.

“If we have a national agenda and national plans, it doesn’t matter which party is in power, there is always a national agenda and national plans we are following, a government commences an agenda, plans and the next government continues so that we will move forward as a nation,” Ms Limann lamented.

While she had no plans and agenda of following her late father’s footsteps, she narrated that growing up and being a victim of politics, it had never been an agenda and plan for her to engage in politics and never thought about it.

“But right now where we are, looking at our country as a whole, now realising that Ghana is ours, the way certain issues churn out, you just can’t fathom why issues happen the way they do, I have had the urge to venture into politics, however, one of my siblings is venturing into it,” Ms Limann disclosed.
