As a wise and aspirational African people, there is nothing we cannot do, when we set our minds to it - if we unite, that is. We must thank the heavens, that President Akufo-Addo has finally awoken to the harm done to our national economy, by the geniuses into whose grasping hands he entrusted its management - that smug and super-arrogant lot: who have now been hoisted on their own sodden collective-petard. Shame on them. greed-filled shame-proof characters.

Furthermore, dear reader, if Ghana is now going begging-bowl (calabash encrusted with diamonds and gold nuggets), in hand, yet again, to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), then, clearly, the situation demands that either the current managers of our nation's economy resign enmass, or are all relieved of their posts, by President Akufo-Addo. Swiftly. Now. Not tomorrow. Full stop. Case closed. Yoooooooo...

Once that is done, all of our nation's sundry regime-critics, must then unite, for the common good, to demand that President Akufo-Addo puts party-advantage aside, in the supreme interest of our country, and forms a government of national unity, made up of the best brains in Ghana (who are all world-class-achievers in different fields of human endeavour whose individual expertise are relevant to the nation-building task). Cool.

Finally, those selected (by national consensus), must all be patriotic and lily-white-honest, with moral compasses and stellar track records, of solid on-the-ground-achievement, in the real world, who will then work with President Akufo-Addo (day and night), to take the nation forward - now that the plain truth is out there, for all to see: that Ghana's national economy, is in its death throes, and has actually been dying, in slow-motion-fashion, for yonks, now. Hmmm, Oman Ghana - enti y3wieye paaaa enei? Asem kesie, bi, ebeba debi ankasa, oooo, Ghanafuo. Yooooooo...
