Mr Javed Talat, Executive Director of the World Bank on Monday called on the Ghana Government to fashion out mechanisms that would help check the ever-growing population to solve development challenges.

He said Technology was fast moving towards reductions in job creation such that unchecked population growth could become disastrous to developing countries in terms of high rates of unemployment.

Mr Talat made this call when he led a World Bank delegation to visit Vice President John Dramani Mahama at the Castle, Osu.

He said the World Bank had a financial facility to support developing countries to check population growth and suggested to developing countries to adopt such measures in order to advance their economies.

Population reduction is not our priority

Ghanaian Chronicle
August 19, 2011

At 24 million, this nation certainly, cannot be said to be over-populated. Our landmass, at 91,000 or so square miles, is almost the size of Great Britain. Britain has a population far in excess of 60 million. It pre-supposes that over-population cannot be a problem that inhibits development.

The problem of Ghana, as in many third world societies, is our inability to harness the enormous resources at our disposal to make the population comfortable. That is why The Chronicle is unable to buy into the suggestion by Mr. Javed Talat, Executive Director of the World Bank, who has asked the government to fashion out a mechanism to help check the growing population of this country.

The World Bank official suggested to the Government of Ghana to access a World Bank facility intended to aid Third World countries to check population growth. We do not believe facilities to slow down our population growth are the priority of this nation. Instead, we would welcome a World Bank initiative that would make it possible for this country to trade with the advanced countries and improve revenue.

[…] The Chronicle believes we need no ghost to tell us that our woes stem from a weak economy. Even if we halve our population growth without acquiring the resources to take care of the population, we are still going to wallow in the quagmire of abject poverty. That is the bottom line. Our priority, as a nation, must be how to improve the national economy.

  1. Ghana is the size of the United Kingdom and has about half of its population. Meanwhile, the Akusombo Dam took countless acres of pastoral land from local people and probably 98% of the electricity produced from it is used by a single globalist aluminum smelter, but the tax pay of course still pays punitive interest rates for the loan to fund the project.

    Yes, Accra is over-crowded, like most capital cities, but the villages are very sustainable with most living from the land and the sea. It is fractional reserve and central banking that centralize capital to create overcrowded “Capital” cities, where the capital is centralized to create poverty in the provinces and, to create polarized, crowded cities.

    Thus, we have too many bankers in collusion with government bureaucrats stealing our money, which creates the disparities that appear like overpopulation. No, we have too much financial theft. And the impact of this inflation is clear to see. In many resort towns in Ghana there are previously beautiful buildings now lying derelict, which were built for the projected tourist trade, which collapsed when their currencies were destroyed and, when inflation and higher interest rates made the previous entrepreneurs insolvent. Sound familiar?!

  2. I speak my mind and I’m not afraid to speak my mind and people mock and hate me because of me being a free thinker and not being a dumbed down brainwashed conformist like the rest of society due to government’s brainwashing of the population.
    I’m an activist that supports free speech and all rights and freedoms for all humans and animals. I support freedom for all no matter if they are religious or not (Atheist).

    I’ve been intimidated and threatened with death by both the government and by the Illuminati in person and online because I speak my mind and refuse to conform and submit to the evil Satanic New World Order and I refuse to be the slave of the Illuminati or the government.

    I am awake. Are you?

  3. Well if they can feed their population on their own they shouldn’t listen to calls to control it. If they can’t and rely on food aid they are just enslaving their country to this new system of neocolonialism through “aid” in Africa which will eventually lead to the NWO fully in control.
