“Dr” Okudzeto Ablakwa Declares President Mills Healthy.
Listen to article

Most Ghanaians knew the NDC was not as good in governance as its rival NPP. But fewer Ghanaians would have believed that the NDC was so inept, arrogant and corrupt. The level of ineptitude and arrogance that we are seeing in President Mills' lead NDC government is stunning. What is sad and almost disgraceful is the manner in which President Mills' publicity is being handled by his inept, NDC's own labeled Team B handlers.

All over the world, if a President's health becomes an issue for public disclosure, competent physicians or the President's own physicians routinely make those pronouncements. The delicate nature of a president's health, the obvious ramifications associated with every single word uttered thereabout, and the technical language involved makes it imperative that a physician who knows what he or she is talking about informs the public. But in President Mills' Team B administration, the one and only deputy minister of “misinformation” has suddenly turned a physician to make public pronouncement about a complex medical issue, such as the President's medication, its side effects and how he reacts to it.

“Dr”. Okudzeto Ablakwa, whose public image and truthfulness is worse than the late Sadam Hussien's information minister Latif Hassif Jasin who was telling the World on CNN that peace and tranquility prevailed in Iraq, at the same time that Americans were throwing bombs in Iraq and the same CNN was showing the war on its channels around the globe; has the audacity to tell Ghanaians that President Mills' whose palms have turned pitched black from medication reaction is as fit as fiddle, he works out each morning.

What credibility has this “misinformation” minister who was not disciplined enough to pass his undergraduate exam to talk about the President's health in public. What bothers me is that the loudmouths Koku Anyidoho and Quashiga did not have a modicum of common sense to know that if they decide to go public with the President's health, then at the very least they must have a competent and credible person with medical background to deliver this to the Ghanaian public.

Mills is our President, political affiliation notwithstanding; therefore many Ghanaians were flabbergasted by the way this wannabe doctor of a “misinformation” deputy minister has handled this matter. Since “Dr” Ablakwa has brought the President's health into the public domain, Ghanaians are already asking what kind of medication the President is taking, and to cure what ailment? Whether or not the blackness of the President's palm is a sign of bad omen for the country? Is it true that the President's palm turned black as a result of applying TB Joshua's magical lotion? Could the okro mouth Okudzeto Ablakwa provide answers for these questions?
