Many Ghanaian politicians and journalists affiliated with politics, under the umbrella of the incompetent NPP government and its leader, Nana Akufo Addo, are opportunists.
They take advantage in every situation and capitalize on projects to amass wealth and this time around, another thief, a corrupt journalist in the name of Paul Adom Otchere, has been exposed.
From the time Nana Akufo Addo became president, even though he wouldn’t admit that he is corrupt, those he appoints will always be around to show his lies and deceptions because the president lacks institutional measures and steps related to transparency and accountability.
Akufo Addo is not only a genius corrupt plagiarist; he also likes appointing corrupt people, including journalists, to serve in his interest. This is one of the reasons he appointed journalist Paul Adom-Otchere, as the board chair of the Ghana Airports Company Limited.
Ghanaians have already witnessed the corruption case involving Kwasi Anin-Yeboah, which the president let go without asking for the resignation of the Chief Justice.
In the office of the president is also the Director of Communication, another corrupt politician called Eugene Arhin. How can a president who claims not corrupt keep many people involved in corruption scandals in his government?
Like a speck of dirt exposing itself under the carpet, another corrupt person, this time a Ghanaian journalist called Paul Adom-Otchere has been involved in airport decoration fraud and scandal.
Gone are the days when the media houses employ hard-working journalists ready to die for the truth. Now many politically affiliated media houses in Ghana, are no longer interested in the truth.
Paul Adom-Otchere has tarnished the image of the NPP government and ruined the reputation of hard-working Ghanaian journalists
They call a blue object green, and strongly admit a white object to be black in favor of political gurus. Thus; journalism, the profession that used to be a respectable career, has now lost its significance and integrity.
“It takes a million people to build a good reputation but it takes one stupid fool to destroy all the good works that have been done,” sings the South African reggae legend, Lucky Dube. (Teach The World).
That is the case with Paul Adom-Otchere. He has completely tarnished the image of journalism in Ghana. People like Paul Adom-Otchere have degraded the profession of journalism to be a cheap and non-respectable profession, questioning the integrity of journalists over and over every day.
Apart from the high amount of money involved in the cost of the Christmas trees which have angered many Ghanaians to show their frustrations on social media, it was later revealed that the trees weren’t four as claimed by the former host of Good Evening Ghana Show on Metropolitan TV but two.
At the end of the day, Nana Akufo Addo will keep Paul Adom-Otchere, as the board chair of the Ghana Airports Company Limited, together with Charles Bissiw, Eugene Arhin, Kwasi Anin-Yeboah, then comes back later to tell Ghanaians he is there to protect the public’s purse.
Who will have respect for such a leader if you are an intelligent person? The harm Akufo Addo has done to Ghanaians just because he thinks his father was a politician and therefore, he deserves to be a leader as well is unspeakable and disgraceful.
If Akufo Addo fails to let Paul Adom-Otchere resign, then he shouldn’t waste his time preaching to Ghanaians that he is either protecting the public’s purse or he is not corrupt.
As a matter of fact, he will always remain the most corrupt and worst president in the political history of Ghana.
