What Younger Generation Ghanaians Can Learn From The President-Elect - And How That Can Benefit Our Nation

By doggedly sticking to his tunnel-visioned quest for the presidency, Ghana's president-elect, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo, has finally realised his longheld dream of leading his country  - at the age of 72.

It was his strength of character and tenacity of purpose that enabled him achieve the goal he is said to have set for himself many years ago - wisely spending the intervening years preparing himself towards that end.

Although one is opposed to his party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP), this blog nonetheless salutes him and wishes him well, during his tenure - because he has promised to be a unifier and a president for all Ghanaians.

Like many Ghanaians, one prays that his presidency will benefit our nation, and all its people - young and old alike.

Above all, ordinary people, particularly younger generation Ghanaians, ought to take comfort in the president-elect's fairytale-like life-story, and be inspired by it.

The moral of his life's story, is that it never really is too late to succeed in life. And if at first you don't succeed, try again - and again, and again: until you succeed.

If at the age of 72, a disciplined approach to life, hard work, persistence and faith in God, made it possible for the president-elect to finally achieve the main goal  he set for himself as a young man, so can the same virtues enable young people throughout Ghana, to achieve their goals and realise their dreams too. Ditto older people.

One hopes that the president-elect's sense of discipline, perseverance and determination will inspire all Ghanaians: for they are  the selfsame attributes (amongst others) we need as a people to help transform our homeland Ghana into the  prosperous nation we all want it to become.
