It Is Kennedy Adjapong Who Is Disastrous For The NPP - Not Albert Kan-Dapaah

No sane individual who understands why seasoned investors put their monies into particular emerging economies, will doubt the fact that it is precisely because the New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration includes solid individuals of integrity, such as  the Hon Albert Kan-Dapaah, as national security minister, which gives confidence in Ghana amongst the shrewdest of foreign investors.

It is such an irony that today it is Kennedy Adjapong MP,  the verbally-aggressive politician whose baleful influence in the NPP is actually a total "disaster" (to use his own words vilifying Kan-Dapaah) for our homeland Ghana, in so far as confidence in Ghana amongst international investors is concerned, who has the nerve and effrontery to criticise Hon Kan-Dapaah, because he sensibly refuses to humour myrmidon-thugs who invaded a court of law to free their colleagues on trial for destroying state property and assaulting a gentleman appointed by President Akufo-Addo's administration as the regional security coordinator for the Ashanti Region.

If the moderates in the NPP want their regime to succeed, they must resolve to dismiss all the extremist politicians in their midst from their party - for the only way for Ghana to be transformed will be the nation's  ability to attract sufficient investors from around the world to partner Ghanaian entrepreneurs in joint-venture  businesses.

The question there is: What sane foreign investor would want to invest in a nation in which vile and violent-tempered men like the   Kennedy Adjapongs and Bernard Antwi-Boasiakos hold sway?

The NPP's moderates  must also understand clearly that the era when it was OK for respectable politicians to fraternize with criminal-types recruited as enforcers to be used to fight their way to power during elections,  if need be, is over for good. Thank goodness.

The John Boadus and Sammy Awukus had better cotton on to that new reality quickly.

There is no "utility" to be gained - by sincere and principled men and women who want to give back to society by going into politics to serve their nation and its people - from mixing with criminal-types who create disorder in society because they think a substantial slice of the national cake should be handed over to them immediately to "chop Ghana small!"

It will not happen in the new Ghana led by the principled President Akufo-Addo - who is president for all Ghanaians. Fair-minded middle-class Ghanaians most definitely do not want their country to come under the thumbs and jackboots of illiterate and semi-literate thugs in the  Invincible Forces and Delta Forces who clearly think that might is right. It is not. Not in today's Ghana. Full stop

That is why there has been such widespread horror amongst the fair-minded and apolitical middle-class Ghanaians, a key demographic whose crucial votes won the presidency for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, by the invasion of a court of law sitting at Kumasi, by members of the so-called Delta Force.

They are aghast that brutish thugs could muster the courage to invade a court of law presided over by a judge, in Ghana, to unlawfully free their colleagues standing trail after a frenzy of destroying state property in the building housing the offices of the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council, and assaulting the man appointed as the regional national security coordinator, by no less a person than the president of the Republic of Ghana.

Ghana's silent majority are no longer prepared to sit on the sidelines and watch their country being misruled  by individuals who in their view are unfit to govern their homeland Ghana. It is that activism by well-off Ghanaians that has led to the rise of patriotic and apolitical civil society organisations such as OccupyGhana.

The greed and cynicism of the Kennedy Adjapongs and Bernard Antwi-Boasiakos cloaked as love of country and desire for good governance does not fool such people. They all know that at a certain stage not too long after the NPP came to power he was demanding that his favourites had to be awarded a contract to print national ID cards - whiles in the same breath condemning Ibrahim Mahama for allegedly hogging government contracts when his brother was Ghana's president. How typical.

The NPP's moderates must gather the  courage needed to enable them rid their party of these reckless and violence-prone men, who so clearly think the law of the jungle should govern our nation. Ghana is a nation of laws inhabited by a civilised people. We do not need  the barbarism and atavistic rantings of the Kennedy Adjapongs and the Bernard Antwi-Boasiakos in the midst of our governing party. It is Kennedy Adjapong who is a "disaster" for the NPP not Albert Kan-Dapaah.

Hmm, Oman Ghana - enti yeweiye paa enei? Asem kesie ebeba debi ankasa.
