Those in power are treating Ghana like how so many citizens are treating their villages and hometowns. The problem is at every level. Until we Sankofa, change will elude us.
The “Sankofa” is a metaphorical symbol used by the Akan people of Ghana, generally depicted as a bird with its head turned backward taking an egg from its back. It expresses the importance of reaching back to knowledge gained in the past and bringing it into the present in order to make positive progress.
