I am saddened by the loss of a young soul that seemed to have a long life ahead of it. Alas, the Almighty GOD who we serve cut it short, and for reasons best known to HIM.
My sadness for the loss of the young and beautiful lady, wife of Mr Peter Boamah Otokunor, was no less than the grief I would feel for the loss of any other person, especially the young. However, taking cue from many lessons in life, it is evident that one is fed from the same plate that they feed others from. In this context, we call it, "Karma"; and Karma is a bitch!
A young couple as Peter Otokunor and his wife were, they had expectations in a beautiful life ahead of them. In happiness and in sorrow, in plenty and in little, in toil and enjoyment, theirs seemed to be cut out as the life of any normal couple one may accost or know. However, the caution in this statement suggests that in everything that one does, the reciprocal results are in commensurate measures. In other words, a certain percentage of output is the result of a specific quantum of input.
Besides, in our world, especially in Ghana, it is a known fact that most people resort to spiritual domains alongside the conventional religions worshipped. Again, Peter Otokunor, accept my sympathies and condolences. However, when you started hyping the lie that Nana Akufo-Addo killed his first wife, little did you know that you had spelled doom on your innocent wife. You did that all in the name of the dirty politics that the NDC pushed you to do.
You must understand that in everything that one may do, there are red lines that cannot be crossed, especially when it comes to issues of religion and family. The hurt of losing a loved one is excruciating, and more so if that person is a loving wife. Today, and I wished it weren't so, GOD has made you taste the pain that you put Honourable Nana Akufo-Addo through when you directly accused him of a heinous crime that he is very innocent of. You hurt Nana Akufo-Addo with diabolism of a dirty kind. As your masters urged you on while the imbeciles, Kokoon Anyidaho, Mugabe Maase, Oudzeto Ablakwa, Kojo Twum Boafo, et al, continued to fire up the evil propaganda, Otokunor, you frolicked in grace and cheers, oblivious of a similar craze that was about to draw your heavy tears.
Peter Otokunor, today, in your sorrow, you stand alone. Those who pushed you to do this dirty job do not feel your pain. In fact, they will come to the funeral and donate some GHs500 and tout their solidarity, but when you are home alone, the darkness of your unfortunate predicament will hit the very depths of you. You, alone, will cry, because the mourners are temporary. Their wailing and crocodile tears only last for the little time that they are paid to perform at the funeral.
Besides, it would be prudent on your behalf to apologise to Nana Akufo-Addo for the unfortunate comments and rambunctious manner that you peddled that lie against him. That is my twopence, if you like, but worth the thought. I am suggesting that this is the beginning of a long chain of calamities, and I am advising you to act in accordance with tradition.
You must apologise to Nana, lest the beginning of your woes be the result of someone's curse for disrespecting the elderly as you exhibited pompously on air and in the media with total disregard to the dictates of the culture that we belong to.
Peter Otokunor, whether you apologise to Nana, is another matter. You know the implications of any possible curse that you may have been saddled with. Whatever it is, I commiserate with you and feel sorry that, as a nation, we have lost a young soul who might otherwise have been of benefit to Ghana.
