The President of a policy Think Tank on Social Interventions, a Consultant and Activist on Societal Pressures, Mr. Ernest Birmeh, a.k.a. Dr. Think Twice has stated that there have been too many pressures on the youth of the country, especially under the current Addo-Bawumia led government.
According to him, these pressures, if not managed well could create unforgettable ramifications for the country.
He, therefore, appealed to President Akufo Addo, to as a matter of urgency, look for him before the pressures on the youth escalate.
Societal pressures, he said are National Security threats, and must be treated with all due respect.
Dr. Think Twice observed that the pressures were seen creeping into the system some ten years ago.
“I didn’t stay aloof, AWARENESS creation was embarked on in ten regions, through prompted SUICIDES, which was to send a signal that something very dangerous was creeping up, therefore it must be tackled”, he said.
Mr. Ernest Birmeh underscored that, because the country has lost its sociocultural values, and now looking for false hopes elsewhere and also bringing some bad government policies that have been the cause of the troubles the youth is going through.
The President of a Policy Think tank on social interventions, ACTIVIST on SOCIETAL PRESSURES, recalled that, when he pointed out to the previous government about the difficulties of the youth, “they refused to adhere to some of the solutions we offered them”
Dr. Think Twice according to him, some of the attitudes of the current government, especially the appointee’s close President Nana Akufo Addo and his Vice President, Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia, are worse than that of former President Mahama.
Today, he said, the situation is escalating from bad to worse, and if care is not taken, it would lead to the most unpalatable situation, that everyone would not be happy in this country.
He, however, stressed that the pressure on the Ghanian youth could be tackled in several ways including employment generation.
Speaking to some friends of the media, he explained that in the densely populated regions, such as Greater Accra and Ashanti regions, 1500 youth could be taken from each constituency and offered training to tackle that bogus societal pressures.
According to him, what he has on the document is a multi-purpose project, that could handle huge problems that are on the verge of exploding.
When asked about whether there was an attempt to reach the President, he said, “several attempts have been made to reach the president and his vice, but the appointees of both of them would not permit me” “There are the saboteurs of both the President and his Vice”.
Mr. Ernest Birmeh said he is tired of the frustrations he has been going at the hands of the people surrounding the President.
He emphasized that it is about time, the President hears him, and has the first information on his multi purpose project, “let’s tackle the pressures once and for all”.
