Executive Director of the Media Foundation for West Africa, Sulemana Braimah has said political leaders are confident bragging about very insignificant things like building toilet facilities among others due to the fallen standards in politics in the country.

According to him, the phenomenon is the reason some leaders who had the opportunity to turn the fortunes of the country around but failed have the confidence to seek reelection.

Making reference to nationalist movements such as kumepreko and others, Mr. Briamah said the current crop of leaders have betrayed many of the patriotic and selfless principles they stood for at the beginning of the 4th Republic.

Mr. Briamah in a Facebook post said ”As I learn more about nationalist movements such as kumepreko and others, the following are what comes to mind: The current leadership has betrayed many of the very patriotic and selfless principles they stood for at the beginning of the 4th Republic.”

He added that ”We, the members of the current generation have been lazy at asserting our rights and fighting for the right things to be done and for the rights of future generations.  The generation of those in their 60s and above really fought for this country.  The political standards and values have been lowered.”

”That’s why leaders can feel confident to brag about how many toilets have been constructed and fight over who built what classroom. And that is why leaders who had graciuos opportunity but failed misrably will be desperately seeking to come back to power. To do what?”

Mr. Briamah further said ”We the members of the current generation have become too money-oriented and less patriotic. In other words, patriotism is fast on the decline.  We need to do more for our country. Let’s be more patriotic and defend what is right and cherish the values the founding fathers of our nation stood for.”
