A Senior State Attorney at the Attorney General’s Department (AGD) in the Volta Region, Lawyer Andrews Dodzi Adugu, has advised the youth of Ghana to always critically consider the future and the fate of the nation before they cast their votes in any elections.
According to him, the future of Ghana is very paramount and must be taken into consideration in any decision making and policy formulation for sustainable development.
He said as a people, we are better and bigger than the people who decide to influence us forcefully hence one must consider critically to make the right decision in considering the fate of Ghana first and foremost.
“As you decide to even cast your vote, just remember what is the fate of this country, where are we moving to, who decide our future leaders. But if you decide to accept corrupt practices, if we decide to accept gifts to decide our fates then we commit our next four (4) years into the hands of people who have been able to ‘bribe’ us” he said.
He gave the advise as the Guest Speaker at the 2023 graduation ceremony of Wallahs Academy Senior High School, Ho on the theme ‘After Senior High School Education, What Next?’ on Saturday, September 30, 2023 at the school premises in Ho.
Lawyer Adugu, emphasizing the importance of development for the nation said: “let us allow people with dignity and people who are ready to serve our country lead us. By that I am asking you to not be found wanting and not commit any electoral fraud” he admonished.
The rector of the school, Mr. Maxwell Affram Wallahs, also called on all residents of Ho and the Volta region at large, to support the school in this year’s National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ).
He said the school is among some seven (7) other private schools in the country who will for the first time participate in this year’s preliminary stage of the contest which will take place from October 6 to 19 2023 in Kumasi.
He lamented about parents taking their wards from the school with flimsy excuses, irregular delay and non-payment of school fees, students not reporting for school early on resumption day and the unmitigated supply of mobile phones to students by parents and guardians and in some cases, the inability of parents to monitor the unprescribed items their wards bring to school among many challenges facing the school.
