Things That Make You Go Hmmmmmm (VII)

Listen to article

My trip to “Ogyakrom” was a real eye opener. How come many Ghanaians have built huge beautiful mansions in Ghana, but live in “rat holes” here in the US? I hear you say, they’ll move there on retirement. Yeah right…. With the non-existent health service, how do they expect to survive during the most fragile time of their lives? Hmmmmm… these houses will stay empty till thy kingdom come Hopefully this is the last year of Hardship, Incompetence, Parochialism and Corruption (HIPC) I’ll advice any Ghanaian soldier planning a coup to forget about it. President Kufour does not deserve to be overthrown. That will hide his incompetence. Hmmmmmm … what a good reason for supporting the democratic process Kufuor Did Not Read law In Oxford It’s a well known fact that having degrees doesn't equate to success. Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard and the rest is history. So, we don't care what degree our President has, but he better not be lying about what he doesn't have. … and his “asslicking” press Secretary, Mr. Kwabena Agyepong, had the audacity to tell us Kufuor is a lawyer. It’s lies like this that make lotto-doctors go hmmmmmm Africa Has Great Potentials - Ala Adjetey That is no secret, Mr. speaker. But as far as greedy people like you remain in power, we will never enhance that potential. It’s advice like this that makes all those hanging on to power, while they should be on retirement go hmmmmmm Prez Kufuor To Explain Why He Left PNDC Mr. President, why don’t you rather explain why you joined, what you called an “illegal government”. We are tired of your selective approach to issues. It’s hypocrisy like this that makes me wanna shout hmmmmmm President Kufuor was elected unopposed as the Ecowas Chairman. Getting a useless job that nobody wants is nothing to shout about. Hmmmm isn’t it strange not one single head of state competed for the post Dr Kwame Addo-Kufuor, Minister of Defence, has stated that the government has achieved a lot within the three years in office and that the country could be counted among the best on the continent in terms of development. It's time for the Non Performing Party (NPP) to start listing their so-called achievements. No more flimsy statements in an attempt to hide inefficiencies. It’s empty barrels like this that make the most ...hmmmmmm President John Kufuor says 2004 holds a promise for Ghana as a nation. What about the year 2001, 2002 & 2003? Did they not hold promises? Every year holds promise, but we need a group of competent administrators to enhance that promise. What we have is a group of corrupt, incompetent, nepotistic people in government, blowing their horn that nobody can see. Presidential Jet For Sale If it take the No Policy party (NPP) 4yrs to sell one small executive plane worth $3million, how many years will it take you to create 100,000 jobs worth $100m? Send your answers to the castle. I strongly believe the government is playing with the intelligence of Ghanaians. In opposition they strongly made "gullible" Ghanaians to believe that the Gulf Stream was purchased through dubious means. We waited 3 years and all we are told is “jet will be sold, but we wont tell you who is buying. Where is the fraud? Our current government cannot see the big picture. They think too small. They suffer from the "what's in it for me?" syndrome. The simple truth is that the Kufuor administration has squandered incredible opportunities to bring Ghanaians together, promote development in regions that have only known under-development, to encourage health in places that are ravaged with disease, to make us more prosperous by living up to it’s election propaganda. The simple truth is our current administration has failed Ghana. Views expressed by the author(s) do not necessarily reflect those of GhanaHomePage.
