A facebook post sited by CediNews by one Aduanaba Kofi Nti, a teacher at Pewodie D/A JHS in the Ahafo Ano South West district in the Ashanti region has hinted on the connections/protocols which have currently become the norm in the wake of promotion. He pinpoint on how our lives are no longer exemplified by honesty in doing the right thing according to the societal values, beliefs, and principles. He advised that, it is not too late to stop the connections, lets allow the systems to work.
Below is his facebook post.
Some years ago, not long ago, I used to tell my age-mates, classmates and clubmates that we have to fundamentally fight corruption to change societies.
I thought we were going to propagate attitudes that would make the future generation and leaders more responsible to citizens. I thought we were going to prove ourselves to be hugely committed to working towards greater transparency, accountability and integrity in our country.
Some few years later, I realized that we have completely come to lack integrity.Our lives are no longer exemplified by honesty and consistency in doing the right thing according to the societal values, beliefs, and principles.We proudly tell others that, ‘connection/protocol’ is the order of the day.We publicly tell others that we live in an environment where ethics and integrity have no place.
We easily blame others for corruption and do not consider ourselves responsible for our own corrupt behavior.We always consider our leaders to be ultimately responsible for their corrupt behavior, not ours.
We make no concerted effort to instill a sense of integrity in ourselves.Our thinking and sight faculty has become corruption.
There is little basis to assume that there is a common set of rules, values, beliefs, and principles applicable to us to guide ethical behavior and integrity.
Won’t the future generation come to know the practical meaning of corruption?
“Our children will one day say, there lived fathers who were immoral!”
It Is Not Too Late – Stop The Connections and Allow The System To Work!
