Ghanaian Journalist and host of Metro TV’s ‘Good Evening Ghana’ Show, Paul Adom Okyere has heaped fire in the hat of the former president, Jerry John Rawlings for championing the agenda of collapsing Ghanaian-owned businesses during his regime.
Paul Adom Okyere was brave enough to point fingers at Jerry John Rawlings for starting the witchery of bringing down Ghanaian-owned businesses in his regime over reasons that those businesses posed as a threat to his government looking at how powerful they were becoming—meaning those businesses could’ve risen against his government hence collapsing them became the only best option.
Paul, lamented over the hatred for Ghanaian-owned businesses and the agenda by governments (NPP, NDC, etc) to collapse flourishing businesses owned by Ghanaians all because of jealousy and the fear of owners of such businesses becoming wealthy in years to come.
According to Paul, the collapsing of some Ghanaian-owned businesses isn’t backed by any law but as a result of pure hatred which in the end, wouldn’t help the economy of Ghana.
This comes on the back of Archbishop Duncan Williams’ allegations that there’s a plot by various governments to pull down Ghanaian-owned businesses just like that because of jealousy and hatred.
Paul Adom Okyere made a lot of sense when he said that if a businessman/woman goes against the law, let the law deal with him or her but don’t collapse his or her businesses or give them of foreigners to manage.
If care is not taken, foreigners will become business owners in Ghana a few years to come looking at how businesses are being shut down in recent years.
