DS Opinions

Teachers are historically patriots and role models. In colonial times, they assisted chiefs in local governance. They were invariably opinion leaders for communities, particularly in remote parts of the country. They were lay preachers, catechists and amanuenses who supported local missionary work.

Ghanaians in the diaspora often return home and watch in awe how things are done in the country they left behind decades ago. They do so because many things haven’t changed from the days of our grandparents and they seem very different from the way things are done in their countries of abode.

The announcement by three world-renowned car manufacturers that they have plans to set up a joint venture to produce vehicles in Ghana is yet more evidence of how the world now sees this country as one the best destinations for doing business in Africa and the world at large.
