Feature Article How President Akufo-Addo can reset Ghana successfully - now, not tomorrow
AUG 14, 2022 LISTEN

Interesting times, indeed, in today's Ghana. Long before it became fashionable (as it now is), some of us wrote and published countless articles, demanding (yonks ago), that if President Akufo-Addo wanted to leave a legacy that he deserves, then it was vital that he appoints, as ambassadors, Nana Asante Bediatuo, Yaw Osafo Marfo, Ken Ofori-Atta and Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, to go and represent Ghana, abroad, asap.

They will all make excellent envoys for our country. In one's humble view, that would immediately free the President, of their baleful influence, once and for all. Luckily for the enterprise Ghana, as we speak,today, many more voices are being heard across the nation, all of them also asking for those who currently manage our national economy, to be replaced immediately, by President Akufo-Addo.

We are grateful to God Almighty, for such a small-mercy intervention, paaapa, oooo, are we not, anaaaa, Ghanafuo?In light of all the above, the question a wise and aspirational African people, like Ghanaians, ought to ponder over is: Can Akoto Ampah, that fine legal mind, not replace Nana Asante Bediatuo, at the presidency, as the new Executive Secretary to the President - with Dr. Thomas Mensah, of NASA-fame, serving his native country, as the new Chief of Staff?

Furthermore, could the brilliant generational-thinker (and Kasapreko Ghana Limited's founder), Dr. Kwabena Adjei, not replace Yaw Osafo Marfo, as senior presidential adviser? Ditto Dr. Kofi Amoah (Citizen Kofi), replace Ken Ofori-Atta, as our new finance minister, and, the principled and erudite Kwabena Adjapong, whom, at a point in time, once served as the ruling New Patriotic Party's General Secretary (until his removal was engineered by those who envied him, and feared his independence of thought, as well as his incisive and innovative mind), not also replace Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, as a selfless, well-meaning and patriotic confidant, of the President's?

Finally, dear reader, at day's end, above all, as a super-competent inner-circle team around President Akufo-Addo, surely they could all work together to help the President to reset Ghana, successfully, anaaaa, oooo, Ghanafuo, could they not? Eeiiii, Oman Ghana - enti y3wieye, paaaa enei? Asem kesie, bi, ebeba debi, ankasa. Enough is enough, oooo. Yooooooo...
