Obama urges Ghanaians to seek honest, self-reliant government

Obama’s message, in a speech to Parliament and repeated throughout the visit, was to urge Africans to stop looking backward or to blame other countries for their woes but instead to become self-reliant, to adopt open and honest government, and to stop Africa's wars. “We must start from the simple premise that Africa’s future is up to Africans,” Obama said in his speech.
