Most interesting story from today's edition of The Enquirer. Hmm, Ghana – eyeasem oo! It appears that a majority of the most vociferous of the supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) are individuals who benefitted materially from the patronage of those who controlled that party when it held power – and are now engaged in NPP propaganda for purely self-serving reasons: using love of country as a cloak to hide their perfidy (in joining in the brutal gang-rape of Mother Ghana during the greed-filled Kufour era).
Wonders will never end in Ghana: Amazingly, it now emerges that even “Little-Miss-Perfect ” Ursula Owusu too bought a Ghana Airways property – and is currently working pretty hard on the airwaves in order to get her party back in power (and perhaps increase her personal net worth some more, hopefully?). Yet another example, is Mr. Asamoah-Boateng, the former information minister – whose unbriddled nepotism whiles he was a minister in the NPP regime, has today landed him in the law courts.
No doubt, if that most loquacious of NPP politicians had succeeded in escaping to the UK as he had wanted to not too long after his party lost power, he would have sought political asylum there – and today, he too would be shouting himself hoarse on the airwaves from far-away Britain, shamelessly criticizing President Mills’ regime unfairly, like all the other self-seekers of old. Such is life in today’s Ghana. Hmmm, Ghana – enti ye ewieye paa, enie? Asem ebaba debi ankasa!
