So this morning, my attention was drawn to a publication on Viasat1.com.gh that Jessica Opare Saforo, supported by her co-hosts Akosua Hanson and Chantelle Asante last Saturday on Viasat1 were making an appeal to the State to restore Yaa Asantewaa’s image back on the Ghana Cedi note.
After reading the article critically, I strongly believe their appeal to the State is a useless one.
Ask my why, where was Jessica Opare Saforo and her co-hosts when Yaa Asantewaa’s image was taken off the Ghana cedis note some years back.
I guess they did not notice it until an initiative was ignited when the US Treasury last week Wednesday proposed the replacement of the Former US President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill with Harriet Tubman, the former slave and abolitionist.
Obviously their actions show they lack innovative mind, why did they have to wait till the United States launched the initiative before making their appeal?
Obviously I see nothing wrong with Yaa Asantewaa’s image being on the Ghana Cedis note but will her image change anything about the economic crisis which the country is currently going through? I believe not.
If Jessica and her co-hosts were smart and innovative, I believe they need not wait for another country to initiate a move before they initiate theirs.
Bringing Yaa Asantewaa’s image back on the Ghana Cedis note is just a waste of time and I urge the State not to give attention to any of such needless appeal.
Jessica Opare Saforo, Akosua Hanson and Chantelle Asante must rather think of how to help upgrade the cedis to match with international ones not decide who should be on the Ghanaian currency.
If it were left for Citizens appeal to choose who should be on a currency, then I believe everyone would be of the view to put their heoes and heroines pictures there, because in one way or the other, they contributed to this nation’s freedom.
I strongly believe Jessica Opare Saforo and her co-hosts are just seeking attention from the public and I’ll urge the public to object to that unnecessary appeal from the Celebrity Fanzone hosts.
What is their motive behind the appeal if not to seek attention and make it seem as some sort of women empowerment, it’s a bit hilarious because women empowerment should rather focus on what to do to improve the life’s of people.
Women’s Empowerment educates and empowers women, who are homeless, with the skills and confidence necessary to secure a job, create a healthy lifestyle, and regain a home for themselves and their children.
I doubt if Jessica Opare Saforo and her co-hosts have the skills of women empowerment, sitting on television or radio to talk about unnecessary things does not amount to women empowerment.
As a country, our Ghana Cedis is currently depreciating and we should rather focus on how to make the cedis appreciate.
We must focus on how to find solutions to why the Ghana cedis is depreciating rather than appealing for someone’s picture to be put on a currency because it does not change the value of the currency neither will it make the Ghana Cedis appreciate.
Jessica Opare Saforo and her unoriginal co-hosts should go back to their drawing table and think of something that will better the lifes of the ordinary Ghanaian, because their appeal is totally absurd.
Must we Ghanaians or Africans practice what the white man does always?
