The newly formed : YOUNG LIBERALS PARTY OF GHANA, over the weekend had
some sharp words delivered to the Clergymen and women of the various
religious groupings in the country. ? On its Facebook page, this
weekend , the YLP declared that it is utterly dismayed at the blunt
ignorance of religious leaders in country, for failing to skillfully
deliver a true sense of hope and purpose for the young people of the
country., instead clergy men and women like politicians are in the
race for material gains.

Religion in Ghana, it went on to say, was more of a mockery to the
existence of God, people those that are meant to shepherd us all to
the Lord, have lost touch of their true calling, and instead
scrambling for bread crumbs. Loads of Ghanaian churches that have
mushroomed across the globe in far away lands have not been spare the
wrath of this ignorance , partly because of the composition of our
cultural heritage , the infusion of traditional values, and an
educational structure that was void of these crucial ingredients.

It is therefore a joke to turn on the radio and hear clergy men and
women talk about calls for peace ahead of the Supreme Court verdict,
when right under their noses , they see congregation polarized by
politics, corruption and poverty. ?Mr. Bondze , a founding member of
the YLP Ghana , stated that the Supreme Court verdict would be a wake
up call for all Ghanaians, and ?that all the Political leaders,
Clergymen/women, and Traditional leaders , ?have failed the young men
and women of our country by failing to care for the welfare of the
average Ghanaian. ?The verdict he therefore said, should serve as a
wake up call for voters around the country to redefine how they look
at the current leaderships of their said political parties. ?The Young
Liberals Party of Ghana, he said would stand as the platform that
would always seek to advance the development of young men and women
that genuinely seek to better the lives of ordinary Ghanaians, as well
as work together with pressure groups to ensure that our collective
interests are spear-headed and channeled towards national development.

Ghana needs to cure itself of the deep rooted corruption and ignorance
at the leadership and policy makers level, and the YLP challenges the
young people of Ghana to begin to stand up for what is Ghanaian, work
to rid Ghana of its current state of decay. ?It would not be an easy
challenge, because the OLD GUARD of leadership, would ?try to
undermine the efforts and will of the people , but we believe the
effective commitment to the path we are choosing would surely bring
about the much needed change.

The Ghanaian youth from 18yrs and above should be allowed to
participate in the dialogue that is designed to shape the destiny of
our beloved country, therefore we ask all to join us in bringing the
right impetus onto the Ghanaian political arena.
