Ghanaians are lazy - Dr. Kwabena Adjei

Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr. Kwabena Adjei says Ghanaians are lazy because they always sit on radio criticizing government without doing any work to support the country’s economy.

He says Ghanaians spend six days in the week on radio for commentary and the rest on the seventh day, which is unacceptable.

Dr. Adjei was speaking at the launch of the US$2 million Amir Complex, a modern shopping mall at Kisseiman in West Legon.

He argued that if the owners of the new shopping mall had chosen to lazy about talking on radio for six days in a week, the mall would not have been a reality.

“This should be a strong message to Ghanaians that there’s no free lunch in today’s world because everybody's contribution makes the country wealthy,” the NDC Chairman stressed.

Dr. Adjei is therefore urging Ghanaians to engage in something advantageous and desist from continuous radio and television commentary.

Meanwhile, the Director of “Amir Complex”, Stanley Tanor said the mall will support economic growth by contributing to government’s effort at creating jobs.

Tanor noted that the new mall will bring products and service close to people within Kisseiman and West Legon catchment area and ease the pressure on other malls in Accra.
