Ghana’s High Commissioner to the UK and Northern Ireland, Victor Smith, says most of the challenges Ghana is going through today are self-inflicted.

Speaking on Starr Chat, the former spokesperson of the first president of the Fourth Republic Jerry John Rawlings said until Ghanaians eschew selfishness, the woes of the country will deepen.

“Some people are not working because of selfishness and parochialism and we are not disciplined. There is corruption in Ghana and these things are hurting our country,” he said.

Adding: “People are simply being selfish. We need to put systems in place to curb these things. We need to deal with people. Across board Ghanaians are not being truthful and we lack people of integrity… it’s about time we got it right and dealt with those people and the miscreants who undermine the economy… People who under-invoice and over-invoice must be dealt with.

"People should stop stealing at the ports. The indiscipline and corruption must stop… there is hope provided Ghanaians wake up and tackle this issue of indiscipline”.
