Mustapha Hamid speaking at the summit

I lost hope in Ghana's future – Mustapha Hamid
Mustapha Hamid says he had lost hope in the future
of Ghana until the overwhelming attendance
recorded at the National Policy Summit revived his

“This is a confession I am willing to make in
front of the cameras that I had lost hope in this
country,” he said.

This statement was made at the National policy
Summit held at the Accra International Conference
on Tuesday.

The former lecturer at the University of Cape
Coast stated that since his time as a lecturer,
students rather prefer to attend entertainment
programs than to attend lectures organized by
departments of the university.

“For the 7 years that I was at the University of
Cape Coast, young men and women who we often say
are the future of our country were never
interested in academic discourse like this; a
discourse that would advance the cause of our

“But if you brought Shatta Wale and Sarkodie, the
halls were busting to their scenes. And I felt
very sad throughout my years there,” he
passionately said.

“We had faculty lectures at the Faculty of Acts
every Tuesday and we were literally begging
students to come and listen to their professors
profess knowledge and I felt very sad."

"I kept telling myself that this country didn’t
have a future but quite frankly my hope has been
revived" the minister added.

He expressed his joy for the kind of discourse
that the policy makers engaged the public in and
also took the opportunity to appreciate the effort
of his deputy minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, in
organizing the program.

Mustapha expressed his excitement for the new
direction and definition he has given to the
ministry of information.

“I have no regrets at all for redefining what a
Ministry of Information in any country as far as I
am concerned should do.”

“So those who are looking forward that I am here
to attack the NDC and insult people who criticize
our government I'm sorry to disappoint you. I want
to stick to constructive conversation and
engagements that will advance the cause of our
country,” he said.
