How Civil Society Organisations Like STRANEK Can Help Unravel The Agyapaapabi-Assaaseyaa Jersey-SPAC-Heist

How Civil Society Organisations Like STRANEK Can Help Unravel The Agyapaapabi-Assaaseyaa Jersey-SPAC-Heist
LISTEN SEP 27, 2020

If they want to see quick results, in the common-good-ends, which they all seek, STRANEK, and the other civil society organisations, in Ghana, justly railing against the Agyapaapabi-Assaseyaa-Jersey-scandal, should simply contact the UK branch of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), and hand the matter over to them. Simple. Case closed. Haaba. Hmmmm, eyeasem, ooooo.

What they ought to do, is to point out a vital clue, to the lead media professionals, in the UK branch of the ICIJ, who will be chosen to assist them - a clue that reveals the motivation behind it, but which, alas, has unfortunately escaped many critics of the Agyapaapabi-Assaseyaa-Jersey-scandal, in Ghana.

Amanfuo, is state-capture, based on tribal-supremacist-beliefs, of politically-exposed asset-stripping thieves-in-high-places, not a definite and veritable red-flag-issue, paaaaapabi, anaaaaaa? Yooooooo...

The truth of the matter, is that the abomination, which the arrogant tribal-supremacist-agenda driving this egregious stealth-asset-stripping-agenda deal, represents, has, even as we speak, already started to, and, will continue, to benefit sundry well-connected regime-crony professional-advisors, nyafu-nyafu ankasa.

So this is also the mother of all create-loot-and-share finacial services deals, wai, STRANEK & Co, abi? Yooooooo...

And, in exchanging an assured annual U.S.$200 million royalty-revenue-stream, over which Ghana has full control, for blank-check investments overseas with those selfsame royalties, decisions about which we can neither sue nor challenge, and returns on which are not guaranteed, does it not remind one of how our nation was manoeuvred into losing the controlling-golden-share, with sugar-coated-promises, in the takeover of Ashanti Goldfields? Hmmmm, eyeasem, ooooo...

Additionally, let STRANEK & Co ask themselves why, suddenly, so many top-flight lawyers, accountants and sundry consultants, are all busy making hay, while the African sun shines brightly, and warmly, on their privileged happy-faces? Yoooooo...

Then there is the not inconsiderable vital-clue, that STRANEK and it's CSO allies, could make available to the UK financial services sector's regulatory bodies: simply playing the secretly-recorded voice, of Hon. Yaw Osafo Marfo (recorded during an NPP meeting at Koforidua), in which he implied implicitly that Akans (I am one myself, oooo, Amanfuo ), must dominate Ghana, willy-nilly, and benefit the most, from its gold deposits. The hypocritical sod.

Furthermore, currently, is it not a fact that that egregious-abuse-of-power outrage, is only benefitting Ghana's current cohort of pampered golden-regime-princelings, who own and run sundry opaque private-sector corporate entities, providing all manner of consultancy services, I ask? Yooooooo...

Is that fair, and equitable, in a nation committed to achieving all the UN SDGs - and will it not create divisions in and amongst Ghanaian society's professional-classes? Yooooooo...

In any case, are the well-heeled lucky devils, currently chopping-Ghana-small, nyafu-nyafu, not members and sympathisers, of the current regime's confounded ruling party? Was any open public tender announced, through Ghana's media houses, inviting bids for those juicy state contracts - from those who flayed President Mahama for running a regime of family and friends? Bible-quoting hypocrites. Hmmmm, Oman Ghana, eyeasem ooooo. Enti, yewieye, paaa enei Asem kesie, ebeba debi, ankasa, ooooo. Yoooooo ...
