Ghanaians have been advised to change their attitude, outlook and perception towards government work and public service in the year 2013.
The Majority Leader in Parliament, Cletus Avoka made this appeal in his Christmas message to Ghanaians as Christians in the country and around the world celebrate Christmas today, December 25.
According to him, he is dissatisfied with the attitude Ghanaians display towards work which he says has largely contributed to people’s economic standing in the country.
“I am not too sure that I am happy with the attitude of many Ghanaians towards our work and I think it is important we eschew negative tendencies and be loyal and faithful to the country.”
He however congratulated Ghanaians for their tolerance and contribution to the peaceful conduct of the December 7 general elections.
“Ghana has emerged successfully from a very free, fair and transparent election.
The first message I have for Ghanaians is to congratulate them for the tolerance, the patience, the understanding they have such that we have been able to go through this election peacefully without any confusion and crisis.”
The Minority leader, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu on his part congratulated all his colleagues both in the Majority and the Minority side of Parliament for “all the efforts we’ve put in for this whole year.
This is the period for reconciliation between man and God and I think that should also provide an ample opportunity for all of us Ghanaians to come together.”
He continued saying, “as a nation we should know that nobody wishes evil for this country, we are all in the boat together, we are pursuing truth and righteousness and we want what we do as unrighteousness corrected.”
Mensah Bonsu wished the President, John Dramani Mahama the best in his endeavours as President of Ghana.
He also wished all past Presidents, ex-Presidents John Kufuor and John Rawlings and the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Akufo-Addo the best that they wish for themselves.
