Mr John Adamah, a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Bankers, has, in the wake of the Ghana elections fever, said that there will be no winner if this beautiful country of ours is ravaged by war.
Mr John Adamah, the Head of The Consumer Banking Department at the GCB Bank limited recounted the first-hand experiences he saw in a trip to Liberia, one of the known West African countries to have been ravaged by war as a result of protracted political strifes.
“Bullet holes in major buildings and abandoned edifices in the city centre provide the memento of the devastating effects of war,” he wrote in what is quite a lengthy message on Facebook.
“An economy, once the envy of many countries, was in tatters at the time of our visit. The social infrastructure was nothing to write home about and the general well-being of the citizens was pathetic,” he further stated.
As the elections beckon tomorrow, John Adamah admonished the electorate to be mindful of the fact that there can be no winner when this country is ravaged by war, adding that there could be only one winner after which the nation-building continues, otherwise, we’ll all be losers in the wake of any war arising from the election.
“Friends, as we go to the polls tomorrow, let us be mindful of the fact that there is no winner when this beautiful Nation gets ravaged by war. We shall all be losers. There can only be one winner, after which the task of nation-building continues,” he added.
He urged; “Let the leaders and supporters of the party that will be declared winners remain magnanimous and humble in victory, whilst those of the defeated party remain gracious in defeat. We must eschew the tendency to taunt our opponents”.
