By 2060 - I want to see a completely peaceful continent where there are no more civil wars in any nation (Thankfully Ghana has never had one, and I wish that for everybody).
I wish that the illiteracy level will decrease.
I see a huge decrease in poverty and completely wipe out dependency on the west and maintain our own resources ourselves and better.
I wish that all the brain gains who are out of the country for one reason or the other, have returned home to help build the continent like the Indians and the chinese did theirs. I want to see that we have no more old men (60, 70yrs old -including tyrants) heading our nations, but rather 40 something year old well educated, smarter brains men (like Obama's age group) - heading most of the african nations as presidents, bringing in more modern ideas for rebuilding and improving our economies (rather that these old acake greedy old men who are so resistant to change).
I see better and improved urban infracstructures in every city, every village, every town etc etc particularly town planning, roads and transportation eg fast speed trains where i can sit in in Accra and within 30 mins I am in Lagos or IvoryCoast, or that i can hop in my car and within 2hrs i can confidently arrive at my destination without potholes and what not - just as i am able to make it in 2hrs on road from Atlanta to a neigboring state.
My biggest wish by 2060 - is for corruption to be erased.
My wishful thinking is there are no lizards cos i hate them - but like i said - its wishful thinking. I wish all the lizards will sit on a boat and migrate to the west world - am sure they will know what to do to them ).
I also wish to see more of our younger generation speaking our native language - unlike what i pitifully saw when i went home to ghana (utterly pitiful to see a teenager born and raised in Ghana, never set foot out the country and cant speak the ghana language all they speak is english - some even have correct brimerican accents - I was just utterly disgusted by the parents who allowed such nonsense. By age 7 I was speaking Twi, Ga and Ada - 3 languages - I still grew up fine and speak my desent ghanaian english. Dont know if this trend is like that in other metropolitan cities across africa - but personally i think its utterly pitiful to be loosing our language. My future kids have no choice - strict rule in my house - english will be banned! speak it at school). If you are from Africa born and raised (eg primary, secondary educated etc) and you cant speak your language please dont brag about it - cos its SHAMEFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!! UTTERLY PITIFUL .
I wish for a much more improved African Film Industry and that then last but not Least - i wish Majid and Genevieve would have won an oscar by 2060.
