Actress Lydia Forson has expressed her worry at how righteous people seem to find it hard to make it in Ghana.
In a Facebook post, she lamented that when you choose to cut the right path for yourself, the Ghanaian system is designed such that you would want to do certain things wrong if you want to get far in life.
In her words, she wrote:
If you’re trying to walk the right path, work hard and do all the right things to make a living and survive in Ghana it will be twice as hard!!
I hate how this country almost forces you compromise your standards to make it.
It’s almost like there’s no reward for doing things right?!!
No matter how righteous you want to believe you are, you will still slip an envelope or pay a little extra if you to get things done.
This is no way to live!
And you’re going to blame people for staying hours in church praying for a miracle, or people sending goats to the mallam because they want quick cash?!
For many people they’ve accepted that it will take a miracle or magic for them to make it.
The system has failed us, and it’s getting worse and worse by the day.
Every government comes to add their little bit to sink us further and further.
I’m so drained by it all.
You look into the future and you shudder at all the impossibilities.
