Tomorrow, December 25, Ghanaians would join the rest of the world to celebrate the birthday of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
The traditional Christmas narrative, the Nativity of Jesus, delineated in the New Testament says that Jesus was born in Bethlehem, in accordance with messianic prophecies; when Joseph and Mary arrived in the city, the inn had no room and so they were offered a stable where the Christ Child was soon born, with angels proclaiming this news to shepherds who then disseminated the message furthermore. It is a fulfilment of the promise God made to King David that his descendant, a branch from the root of Jesse, will sit on his throne forever.
Disappointingly, this year’s Christmas, is shaping up to be the driest in the history of this country, when it is supposed to be a period of feast, gift-giving and heightened economic activity.
It is trite knowledge that, every year, Ghanaians, especially traders, complain low sales and for them, the preceding is better than the present.
But this notwithstanding we share in the hopelessness of Ghanaians, who were promised heaven, before the coming into office of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
We are hopeful that, in 2021, when the mantle of leadership, will change from the NPP to the national Democratic Congress, Ghanaians, will have a lot to smile about in that year’s Christmas.
We thank all our readers, who have believed in us all these years, we keep growing stronger and getting better, because of their unflinching support, despite the changing times.
To our critics, we welcome the criticism in good faith. We know that, they mean us good. They have always kept us on our toes; we can only promise them that, we will strive to do better.
To Ghanaians, we say good news in the horizon, what they are going through is a test for a better tomorrow, remember that God, has not forsaken you. Good news is coming in 2021.
We entreat you to show love to one another and encourage unity by spending time with friends, families and the less privileged.
Merry Christmas and Prosperous New Year
