Former Head of Monitoring Unit at the Forestry Commission, Charles Owusu, has raised concerns about the character of the black person in dealing with situations.
According to him, it is extremely difficult for a typical black person to admit his mistakes, hence stressing this attitude is mostly the reason why there is so much hardship.
He was commenting on the fuel price increases in Ghana which have compounded the plight of the citizenry as transport bus operators warm up to increase transport fares.
Currently, fuel prices in Ghana have soared burdening vehicle owners and drivers as well as Ghanaians who board commercial vehicles.
Not only have fuel prices gone up, the prices of commodities have also jumped up aggravating the living conditions of Ghanaians.
Speaking on Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo' programme, Charles Owusu noted the African economies for which Ghana is included are struggling because of this ''not accepting mistakes'' behaviour.
"No typical black person admits his or her wrong, so we can't learn. A black person will never accept his wrongdoing . . . it's too hard for us to admit our mistakes," he said.
He argued that there will be a lot of improvement should the leaders in Africa, Ghana to be specific, begin to accept their fault, stressing, "if we admit our mistakes, I'm sure we can effect changes''.
