Ghana has been blessed with resources, our problem is our leaders- Martha Ankomah laments



Ghanaian actress, Martha Ankomah has lamented the stunt in growth of the Ghanaian economy despite its many natural resources.

Ms Ankomah was speaking in a recent interview on Accra FM, when she queried why a country with so many natural resources is lagging behind in development while countries with just one natural resources has a boastful economy.

Martha believes that Ghana’s problems should be attributed to the leaders because the country has been blessed with all the necessary resources to develop.

“if Dubai extracts only oil and has been able to develop its country. And Ghana, God has blessed us with all resources, including oil. And yet, we are poor. Then there is no need for other countries to borrow money from Ghana because it is very worrying.


“Ghana was gifted with everything on earth, but our problem is leadership. And if our leaders are going to change their mindset and have a love for the country, then Ghana would be a better place to be. I feel sad when I see school children under tress learning and MPs drive in V8 sharing goats, chickens and bicycles during elections” she told host Nana Romeo.

She continued; “Do something for someone to say this MP worked. He constructed roads, not the MP that did nothing while school children are learning under trees. Good name, the Bible says, is better than riches.”
