As an activists and a constituency radical, I cannot pretend I do not know what is actually transcending recently in my Constituency I have lived for almost 23 years now. I feel ashamed about the satanic cyber crime some of the youth have taken as their honorable professional work.
Infact, I grief concerning the actions of my co-youth. “I don’t hate the youth, but I hate their trickery immoral actions for prosperity”.
I know very well that elders and leaders are concerned about the cyber crime stooled by the youth in Assin south constituency. In a precise manner, I can perceive they are too worried about such an ungodly trending evil.
The publicity of this piece from GOODNUFF lacuna seeks to add a voice to the already intents to call for immediate measures of extirpating this evil of a cyber crime. I am not a spectator, I am a citizen not to slander or defame or libel, but to adorn something to an advantage.
I have no intent to calumniate my people but to extol them.
“Cyber crime, or computer related crime, is crime that involves a computer and a network.”
In our local areas, cyber crime has grown unrestrained among the youth. This has created a scene of terror and fear in the constituency. The deceit of deceiving people for money is becoming impaired and needs to be annulled.
Sometime ago, when technology was still green, people who were involved in cyber crime were criminals who used the programming talents to glean millions of cash from banks. These crooks were so ingenious in their schemes that many banks cut deals, to hire them as security consultants rather than sending them to prison.
2005 through to 2011 saw the era of “sakawa”, cyber crime. Agona Swedru, was then the hub of such an act. Today, the same people who are now standing as the youth, who frowned against this act now uphold it as though they never chastised it sometime ago.
This satanic mechanism must stop!
What at all are the causes of this malevolent? Through my scrutiny, it is so obvious that laziness and casualness is one of the causes of this nefarious activity.
We find ourselves in difficult times. Things are exceedingly difficult. The hopes entrusted in the government have also birthed no developments in the lives of people.
People are left to becoming beggars and armed robbers while some abhors laziness and reap the fruits of their hard work.
It is rather sad that most of our youth today are not creative to meet the challenges of life. The era of depending on Government and individuals is long gone and we must face the realities of time so that we can survive.
We must as the youth seek counsel from the elders so that we can be properly guided as we journey in these difficult times.
“Though everybody is born to be great in life, sadly enough, very few achieve true greatness. Why?
“Quick money” as it has been termed, is the song of the youth. Passing through right ways to become successful, is seen as an endless fruitless journey. So deceit is their priority instead.
Engaging in agriculture to help produce food for the country and exportation (farming) is regarded as a curse. Pride is rather taken in demonstrations against government when the government is not providing the required social amenities for their villages by the youth.
Lack of parental control is another cause of cyber crime in our constituency.
Few parents have been able to perform their responsibilities as parents, most parents have less time for their offsprings and some even don’t see to the growing their wards spiritually, by putting the fear of God into their hearts. No wonder as young as age 13, some children are easily influenced by peers to involve themselves in criminal acts. Parents’ failure to control their children has lead to the conflicts of Proverb 1:8 “Listen, my son, to the discipline of your father, and do not forsake the instruction of your mother”. Parents have failed instilling discipline and the youth has gone recalcitrant.
In the absence of parental authority and guidance, children act on their impulses, leading to devastating consequences like “Sakawa”.
On 07.04.2015 a criminologist Prof. Ken Attafuah said “the failure of families and societies is the cause of increasing crimes among the youth in Ghana which is due to lack of parental control” and this is manifesting in Assin South Constituency.
The perils of this cyber crime have lead to high dropout rate of students. They believe it is time wasting to spend years on circular education to prosperity. Agricultural products are declining.
Even mental incompetence’s knows cyber crimes are not performed in an honorable manner, it alleges, spiritual sacrifices which needs to be done in order to make the process successful.
Killing of virgins, teenagers, removal of human body parts and removal of dead bodies from tombs are becoming very usual.
It seems my constituency is under curfew, since they go to bed early and wake up late in the morning.
The fear is becoming horrible.
Earnestly, the need for fighting cyber crime is necessarily; of necessity.
GOODNUFF takes a bow to summon; Hon. JOHN NTIM FORJOUR(Member of Parliaments’), ELDERS, CHIEFS, ASSEMBLY, PARENTS’, ALL PROTOCOLS AND STAKE HOLDERS observed to take immediate measures to stamp out the backfriend, Cybercrime “Sakawa” hiding in Assin South Constituency.
