FEATURED: Live Updates: Ghanaians Go To The Polls...

20.01.2011 Feature Article


Listen to article

It is announced to the general public that the President John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills aka Enko yie has unfortunately misplaced his campaign manifesto booklet which has resulted into a complete forgetfulness of all the promises given to Ghanaians during his bid to becoming the president of our dear nation, Ghana.

I therefore appeal to the public that anyone who knows the where about of the said booklet should report to the office of the National Department of Complaint (NDC) Headquarters, Accra for the following rewards; Hampers, Khebab, Pampers, Cat and Corruption.

Ghanaians would bare me witness that if the President had not lost this booklet, he might have done extremely different from what he seems to have been doing. I said this because what ever the President does is contrary to what he promised in 2008 during his campaign tour nationwide.

One stands the chance to ask how the President should misplace such an important document and the possibility attached to it.

If it is not true as stated, rather the President has intentionally deny faithful Ghanaians the prospect of having all that he promised, then the prophetic statement that I made some time back in my previous article has come to pass.

Readers would recall that in one of my articles entitled; From a Better Ghana to a Bitter Ghana, I made some two categorical points which most sympathizer of NDC antagonized me in that respect. Ironically, the President has in his deeds provided enough evidence to substantiate that.

The first point was that the President always does the opposite of what he says and that Ghanaians should not take him serious.

To cite a typical example was when he assured Ghanaians to reduce fuel prices drastically when he assumes office as the President, in his normal opposite style he increased the prices abnormally. As if that was not enough to kill Ghanaians, he further increased taxes to make the case worse.

There are some other taxes that he criticized in 2008. In his regime he thought it wise to take those taxes off from the petroleum products and introduced it on other products. In conclusion, what has he achieved? Robbing Peter to pay Paul?

In 2010 when the President paid a cutesy in the three northern regions, before his tour he made this quoted statement “I am not going there because I want to change Ministers, MCEs and DCEs in those regions.” Again President Mills made it clear that he would not go by the agitation of supporters to dismiss DCEs. Less than 48 hours after his return, he announced the dismissal of a Regional Minister, an MCE and one DCE which is a contrary to what said to the press.

With this, don't you still believe that the President Prof. Mills does the opposite of whatever he says?

I hate insults because is not my style, but is it intensely clear that NDC as a party is full of irresponsible idlers. One stands the chance to ague but the truth always remains the truth no matter how long it is hidden, it will yield its prosperous fruit with no hindrance at an appropriate time.

I call them irresponsible base on the fact that they never want to accept their mistakes. Imagine the President telling NPP to apologize to Ghanaians because he Atta Mills has increased fuel prices. This is a clear level of irresponsibility shown by the President. That takes me back to what Prof. Far ones said that any man who refuses to takes responsibility of what he does whether good or bad will never progress in life.

Instead of the President and his Ministers not forgetting his Vice John Dramani Mahama (The only vice President with 15 children and 3 wives) to work harder and improve the economy they themselves have put into shambles, they find it prudent to complain how poor the economy was under the governance of NPP. Have they recently forgotten that John Mills and John Mahama were brought to fix the broken economy as they deceived Ghanaian to believe in 2008? It is clear that now things have fallen apart for NDC.

The President termed this year as an action year. Ghanaians thought the action would improve their dried pocket, reduce road tolls and fuel prices and bring out some visible implementation as well as infrastructure as they witnessed during the era of NPP. Their thought was far from target because, the said action was meant to be sacking Ministers, MCEs and DCEs. That is all there is to it.

If Ghanaians truthfully want to understand what that action meant, they should read the opposite meaning of it.

I hold my fire for now and ask faithful Ghanaians to judge.
