JUN 27, 2022 LISTEN

Like all his fellow citizens, Honourable Yaw Osafo Marfo, is also entitled to his views, in our democracy - which is a free and liberal society bedrocked on tolerance amongst a mostly peace-loving people, for whom living in harmony with neighbours, actually matters.

Unlike the vast majority of Ghanaians, however, Hon. Yaw Osafo Marfo is a powerful individual, whose voice carries a great deal of weight, in the regime currently in power, in what is a multi-ethnic African society, in which virtually all extended family clans are made of individuals from different ethnicities, who are united by ties of marriage, and consanguinity, in a country founded on the Nkrumahist-principle that no tribe is superior or inferior to another in modern Africa.

The question we ought to ponder over is: Should politicians holding antediluvian views on the issue of ethnicity, be allowed to remain in government, when their repugnant tribal-supremacist views, come to light, anaaa?

Speaking personally, I have Akyem blood coursing through my veins. The females in my family, are eligible to be nominated to be Queen Mothers of Akyem Osiem, and I am proud of my Akyem roots.

However, the idea that somehow Akyems are special, and that the descendants of Okyenhene Nana Ofori-Atta 1, and Dr. J. B. Danquah, are superior beings, is ridiculous - and it is crucial that those in that demographic, who are arrogant for that laughable and absurd reason, put their abhorrent superiority-complexes, in deep-freeze-storage, pronto, ooooo. Yoooooooo...

For their information, the past is a different country that's not worth visiting, koraaaa. Ancient glories count for nought in today's digitised world. The Yaw Osafo Marfos in our midst must belt up - and keep their ridiculous tribal views to themselves. Full stop. Obiara eny3 obi ewor Ghana, ooooo. Yoooooooo...
