A senior citizen and composer, Elder S.K Ampiah has lamented over Ghana’s failure to produce a leader who is as visionary as Dr.Kwame Nkrumah.

In an interview, Elder S. K Ampiah said he cries and laments at the deplorable nature of Ghana since no leader has done anything substantial to change the nation for good.

He added that most leaders look out for the good of themselves to the detriment of the citizens. According to him poverty is on the rise and until Ghana has a leader who can toll the line of Ghana’s first president, the nation will continue to crawl on its knees.

He said: I feel so sad for my country Ghana, After Kwame Nkrumah, we’ve had no visionary leader who could continue with what Nkrumah did. Poverty is on the rise and the citizens are suffering.
