Kwesi Pratt Jnr has said that Ghana’s position on the Global Peace Index should not send us into a jubilant mood.

He holds the view that though we are second on the table of the countries with peace, we cannot be joyous about same because it is tantamount to comparing our height to that of a dwarf.

In effect, Ghana may be adjudged by the Institute for Economics and Peace to be second most peaceful country on the continent, in his view, the other countries in the league are not faring any better and for that matter, our position does not necessarily translate into the realities on the ground.

This is just simple. Assuming without admitting that we are comparing ourselves to dwarfs because Africa is not peaceful, it is safe to state that the one eyed man is the king in the land of the blind.

Even if Africa is boiling with civil strife, Ghana is being singled out to be an island of peace amongst the rest and that should give us joy.

Mr. Pratt is simply refusing to see anything good about this administration. As long as it is Akufo-Addo at the helm of affairs, what used to happen under Mahama he saw as good is bad under Akufo-Addo.

If our security situation is getting worse, how come the world sees Ghana as the second most peaceful nation on the continent, going by Mr. Pratt’s analogy? Dishonesty is his bane!
