2017 . Social Science, Sociology . Kofi Ali Abdul-Yekin
The motivation that drove Kofi Ali to embark on the writing of this book stemmed from the challenges he faced in his activism work. Equally, several West Africans have passionately appealed to Kofi Ali to put into writing his great ideas for generations to benefit from them, and this is just a response in honor to the appeals. The challenges of the modern day Ghana are fundamental issues that call for one-to-one understanding of the core issues. One big challenge is the confusion resulting from individuals assuming different meanings and interpretations of terminologies leading to endless arguments when serious issues are being discussed, normally ending up in frustration than solutions. Most West Africans have also developed the wrong habit of employing the locally adulterated and colloquial version of their formal national language to engage in serious discussion, while expecting others to understand them. Finally, words like culture, politics, institutions, tradition, and history are serious challenges when an average Ghanaian finds him or herself trying to make meaning out of the complications associated with the modern day Ghanaian side and the darker side of Ghana.
