Even though there is no evidence that the Russian leader, Vladimir Putin, did say, "When an African becomes rich, his bank accounts are located in Switzerland." He goes to France for treatment, invests in Germany, makes purchases in Dubai, and consumes Chinese products. He prays in Rome or Mecca; his children are studying in Europe; he has a vacation in Canada, the USA, or Europe; and when he dies, he will be buried in his native country. Africa is indeed only a cemetery for Africans," the statement is true.

What about "Africans can afford to let a factory collapse, convert it into a church, and go there every day to pray for jobs and money?"Finally, what about "If you want to hide anything from a black man, write it in a book?" These discriminatory and disrespectful statements against black people continue to hurt us, but if you go deep into them, all the statements are true; nothing but the truth.

Every year, thousands of African politicians transfer ill-gotten money to various banks in the developed world, thereby continuing the underdevelopment of their own countries. Monies deposited in foreign banks are given out as loans with interest. Therefore, the advanced countries keep getting richer and richer, while Africa experiences extreme poverty, environmental hazards, and a high rate of unemployment.


Akufo Addo, Ken Ofori-Atta, Kwasi Anin-Yeboah, and some pastors, are treating ordinary Ghanaians with cruelty, similar to what the colonial masters did to the voiceless and defenseless Africans

It has been said that unstable governments, poverty, and the threat of hunger facing Africa are caused by armed conflicts, terrorism, tribal wars, and other social problems. However, many underestimate the impact of corruption on Africa. Money stolen from Africa to foreign countries continues to affect development projects, including healthcare and educational projects.

It doesn’t make sense for an African leader or politician to go to Europe or America to seek medical checkups because, if you care about the people in your country, you can build the same hospital and equip them with every modern health facility to avoid traveling to any developed country. Politicians go as far as educating their children or families in advanced countries.

Even though they know that their actions and corruption are having negative consequences on the African continent, they don’t care because they feel secure enough to enjoy their booty in foreign countries. Without any exaggeration, we need to accept the fact that African leaders are responsible for all the problems the ordinary people are facing, simply because they are corrupt, wicked, uncaring, and have no empathy, sympathy, or conscience. They are interested in what they and their families will enjoy, without any plans for ordinary people.

This is one of the reasons I was very hard against the implementation of the E-Levy in Ghana. I have seen corrupt Ghanaian leaders, but not the kind called Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo. Ghanaians should be intelligent enough to know that not catching someone in the act or red-handed stealing money makes the person a thief.

Once a country has a huge debt and yet the government can’t tell the people how that money was used, and above all, no projects have been executed after cutting several sods since Akufo Addo became president over five years ago, which means those funds have been embezzled. Ghanaians, including pastors, can’t find all these corruptible activities affecting the common people, but they are quick to support E-Levy.

There are so-called Ghanaian pastors, including those of the Methodist Church, Presbyterian Church, and the Christian Council, that gave support to the fraudulent tax system called E-Levy. They claim Ghana needs to pay their taxes to develop the country, but they aren’t intelligent enough to let Akufo Addo understand that abandoning NDC’s uncompleted projects, including hospitals, schools, and housing units, by Akufo Addo’s government is the most wicked and stupid thing any African leader can do.

These are the so-called pastors that want Ghanaians to respect them. If God truly exists as I believe, each one of those pastors unable to demand accountability for stolen money and COVID funds from the NPP government or leader, Nana Akufo Addo, will be severely punished. Their lives will end up in total disgrace in broad daylight in Ghana because they are partly responsible for the carnage, corruption, and hardships that have hit ordinary Ghanaians today.

Everyone knows the carnage and crimes the colonial masters committed in Africa, but today, they are treating Africans in the Diaspora more like humans than our African leaders. Look at how Akufo Addo, who claims to be a human rights advocate and under a democratically elected government, is treating Ghanaians, Akufo Addo continues to ignore the welfare of the common people and developments in the country because he is lazy, corrupt, and inefficient.

I don’t know when Ghanaians will ever learn because I pointed out in several of my articles that the two main pillars supporting the country, that is the judiciary and finance, will collapse the country since those two top posts were occupied by the relatives of Akufo Addo. Gloria Akuffo was the former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, while Ken Ofor-Atta, another relative of the president, is the Finance Minister. These are the problems.

How do you expect Ghana to grow as a country if the boss of its finances is a relative of the president? It’s rare to find such appointments, yet Ghanaian scholars, academicians, university graduates, lawyers, and journalists, were all silent when Akufo Addo appointed Ken Ofori-Atta as the Finance Minister. When Gloria Akufo-Addo retired, Kwasi Anin-Yeboah took over. Ghanaians can also agree with me that nothing is going well in the country under the corrupt Chief Justice.

Unfortunately, the problem Ghanaians are facing is just the tip of the iceberg because the NPP as a whole is a rotten party. The roots are so rotten to the extent that it has affected the fruits (NPP politicians). Therefore, no intelligent Ghanaian should expect economic transformation or miracle from this government. The NPP is finished, I have been telling you this since Akufo Addo became president even though I am not a prophet. I don't know how long it will take you to believe me.

The harm Akufo Addo has caused to Ghana is so severe that it will take any leader after him between 5–10 years to salvage or revive the collapsed economy and the depreciated currency. It may even be more. Ghanaians must also understand that destroyed Ghana doesn’t affect them alone but also many of us, especially, the intelligent ones living in the Diaspora because our businesses and investments have perished.
