We Did Not Elect President Akufo-Addo To Enable Some In His Inner-Circle To Chop-Ghana-Small

We Did Not Elect President Akufo-Addo To Enable Some In His Inner-Circle To Chop-Ghana-Small
LISTEN AUG 31, 2020

Painful though it is for me - because I do know that President Akufo-Addo actually came to serve the people of Ghana, not to steal from them - the alleged arrest of the President of the Association of Concerned Small-Scale Gold Miners (apparently because they had arranged a press conference, to expose wrong-doing in the mining sector, by big-people), are the kind of arrogant power-drunk, and abominable-undemocratic-actions, which some of those in his inner-circle resort to, to silence their critics, which have made some of us vow to punish all of them, by working for their defeat, in the decisive December 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections. Yabr3. Who born dog? Haaba.

How dare they carry on as if they owned our country, and we were their serfs, I ask, dear reader? What is this insistence on the Ghanaian nation-state always having to borrow to finance infrastructural projects, and saddling our younger generations and their unborn offspring with huge debt mountains to conundrum with - instead of giving the private sector the oppoqrtunity to fund them, in exchange for pocketing rhe revenues over lengthy periods, I ask? Haaba.

Furthermore, why the heck can't they do some lateral thinking, for a change, and take advantage of the Chinese government's policy of encouraging their citizens to invest in gold jewelry, and gold bars, for example, and turn Ghana into their biggest market for same, using the Precious Minerals Marketing Company (PMMC) as a gold marketing centre, I ask?

Will that not bring in tens of millions of wealthy Chinese citizens, into our country, as eager tourists, here, to shop for unique pure gold jewellery, and Adinkra-embossed credit-card-sized gold bars, and help create an outbound tourism market in Ghana, for China's tourism sector, and ours, and boost tax revenues, that way?

So, why are we still insisting on allowing ruthless and semi-literate Chinese villagers, looking for their main-chance, to come and destroy our priceless natural capital (that is so vital, in an era of serial-pandemics, for public-health-reasons), and help sundry carpetbaggers to regularly, smuggle over U.S.$2 billion worth of gold, on top of that, annually, without our country benefiting in any shape or form, from that? Are we so blind, and so foolish? Haaba.

The question is: Why have those too-clever-by-half geniuses, forgotten so soon, that the main reason they were elected (by an overwhelming number of voters), was essentially because we all believed that they would actually end high-level corruption in our country, and run the national economy, in the national interest, for the benefit of all our people, rich and poor alike?

Lying hypocrites forever quoting the Holy Bible to hide their devilish plans. Is that not how we were tricked into letting go of our golden share in Ashanti Goldfields, during the takeover by AngloGold, with their vain sugar-coated-promises?

President Akufo-Addo has fulfilled his personal ambition to lead Ghana, and those of us who like him, on a purely human level, and admire his tenacity of purpose, which made him finally achieve his main life-goal, are happy for him that God Almighty made that possible, after two consecutive painful-defeats. Alas, recent events have now convinced some of us that he ought to retire.

His legacy, such as it is, is pretty impressive, and will doubtless lay the foundation for a prosperous future, for our ambitious and hardworking younger generations. Ghana is not for sale, wai.

Sadly, we need to rid our country of his arrogant family members, and their greed-filled amoral regime-cronies, who are engaged in the most outrageous state-capture abuse-of-power, ever seen in the annals of the entire history, of our country, since independence in 1957.

Why should we vote them back to power again, to enable them continue engaging in yet more asset-stripping, of the enterprise Ghana - which is why they must be turfed out of power, to save Mother Ghana from their callous and brutal gang-raping. Yabr3. Haaba.

We most certainly did not elect President Akufo-Addo to power, in order to allow a few well-connected private individuals, and highly-placed government members, in his inner-circle, to come and also engage in such Chop-Ghana-Small asset-stripping, ooooo. No. No. No. Enough is enough. Haaba. Hmmmm, Oman Ghana, eyeasem, ooooo - enti yewieye paaa enei? Asem kesie ebeba debi ankasa, ooooo. Yoooooo...
