Ghanaian Media - Step Up Your Game Now

Ghanaian Media - Step Up Your Game Now
LISTEN SEP 6, 2020

Ghanaian media professionals, please step up your game, ooooo. Haaba. What infernal cheek those thieves-in-high-places have. Is the Agyapaapabi-Assaseyaa-Jersey-scandal, not the mother of all create-loot-and-share insider-deals, ever, anaaaaa? Yoooooo...

And, is the plain truth not that no self-respecting UK legal firm, which abhors the vampire-elite-nepotism, and egregious corruption, which is impoverishing millions across Africa, would touch Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, a politically-exposed-person, with a barge pole? Yoooooo...

Furthermore, why does it not strike our local, oh-so-so-intelligent media professionals, as yet, that another oddity, of the Agyapaapabi-Assaseyaa-Jersey-scandal, is that one more politically-exposed-person, Kofi Osafo Marfo, was also one of the well-connected regime-crony-professional-advisors, acting as a 'no-size-best-in-Sikakrom-consultant' in that well-thought-out stealth-asset-stripping-deal? Ebeiiii. Yoooooo...

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) accused former President John Dramani Mahama, of running a government of family and friends.

The question we must all ponder over is: Why have the Ghanaian media, still not counted precisely, just how many family and friends then President Mahama, actually had in his regime - and, also counted the number of friends and family members, in the current NPP administration, who aren't as honest and hardworking, as Hon. Kwesi Amoako-Atta, the no-nonsense Minister for Roads and Transport (and a blood relative of President Akufo-Addo's), for fact-checking-comparative-purposes? Yoooooo...

The time has now definitely come for the Ghanaian media to step up their game. Haaba. Don't they realise that even more chop-chop has been lined up for sundry regime-crony-consultants to make merry, while the African sun shines, on their family trees? Yoooooo...

Do the Ghanaian media still not understand the nyafu-nyafu chop-chop-benefits coming to the lucky best-in-Sikakrom-golden-boys-and-girls, from already-lined-up IPO-road-shows, in various financial capitals, overseas - to sell their smoke-and-mirrors-heist's narratives, to the selfsame greedy-types, who piled into AngloGoldAshanti shares, when our golden share was tricked out of us, years ago, to enable AngloGold secure a smooth pathway, to take over Ashanti Goldfields, on it's own terms, with vain-sugar-coated promises, which it never intended to keep, in the first place?

Ghanaian media, step up your game, fast, oooo - by leading Ghana's concerned civil society organisations, to collaborate with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (https://www.icij.org/investigations/panama-papers/what-is-a-tax-haven-offshore-finance-explained/), in this all-important matter. Simple. Hmmm, Oman Ghana, eyeasem, ooooo - enti yewieye paaa enei? Asem kesie ebeba debi ankasa, ooooo. Yoooooo...
