Things that make me go Hmmmmmm
Listen to article

Here is a list of people who run the affairs of Ghana: Hackman Owusu-Agyemang (House-help abuser who wants to patent 'Ghana'), Richard Anane (Health minister with no respect for safe sex), I. C. Quaye (CV forger and one of only 45 Sheiks in the world), Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey (non-practicing Mormon without a single school certificate), Edumadzie (Mike Tyson without gloves), Fobih ("Awam" Patriot), Keremanteng (believer in phantom loans). It's ministers like this that makes Nsawam prisoners go “what are we doing here” Imagine this headline: “Ghana's Minister of Health contracts HIV at HIV/AIDS Conference!” It's headlines like this that makes me wanna shout NPP - No Proper Protection. President Kufuor has for the past four years boasted about the Ghana economy. The best finance minister in Africa and the second finance minister in the world - Osaafo-Marfo, ran the economy. So, what is the wisdom in changing the man responsible for the improvement? It's decisions like this that makes Ghana man go HIPC “He Is Promoting Craziness” The government has released $430,000 and £320,000, totaling ¢9.1 billion, to 12 foreign missions to be used to support Ghanaian students studying abroad. The allocations include: UK £320,000, Algeria $10,000, Morocco $100,000, Ethiopia $20,000 It's Ghanaian students in Morocco that makes Al Queda go hmmmmmmmm In his inaugural speech, Kufuor said: Vigorous activity is taking place in the Ports and Railway Sector and Ghana is becoming the preferred entreport for our immediate landlocked neighbors, Burkina Faso, Niger and Mali It's logic like this that makes the Ivorian rebels go “Ghana is not the preferred, but the only reasonable choice because there is war in Ivory Coast “ Kufuor said: "… the red Indians of America appropriately called it the food of the gods…" It's unguarded comments lke this that makes the KKK go “Nigger” According to President Kufuor, the increase in remittances from ~US$400 million in 2001 to US$2 billion can be attributed to the confidence of Ghanaians in the economy. It's logic like this that makes me wonder if Kufuor really studied law. Mr. President, it rather reflects the greater dependence of Ghanaians in Ghana on their overseas residing compatriots. And this greater dependence since 2001 can more honestly be explained on the basis of the hardships Ghanaians face in Ghana.
