Hypocritical Stephen Adei Must Get Real!
Listen to article

Hi Professor Stephen Adei,
When the inexplicable happens, the unquestionable is imagined! Also when the hawk visits the feast of the Eagles, that hawk is only risking to be part of that feast. He that invites the evil wind must make sure his tent is solidly strong to withstand it. I monitored you on Class Fm yesterday and you were throwing tantrums, you said former President John Mahama run a corrupt family and friends government, basic school teachers are criminals, Ghana as a country has failed but Akufo-Addo is ‘unbelievably excellent!’ etc.

As a young guy who grew up with a very good upbringing, I was told when I was a little boy that we shouldn't call the private parts of an old widow, should that be the case, how do we give her a baby then? "The lizard that throws confusion into its mother's funeral rites, should not expect outsiders to carry the burden of honouring the dead"

I think you get me right erh? Anyway, I am available to explain it better to you by what I mean with these statements when you call on me.

I will address your issues in an orderly manner. It's very true that President Akufo-Addo is unbelievably excellent, indeed he's excellent in corruption because he's the chief priest of corruption. He's unbelievably excellent in gross incompetence because “This president has exhibited gross incompetence, ignorance, poverty of ideas and lack of innovation. He has been excellent in inflicting unprecedented suffering on the people of Ghana, he has been excellent in turning our able-bodied men into gamblers, he has been extremely excellent in turning teenagers into 'sakawa' boys and girls, always browsing, children who should be thinking studying their books are either defrauding people on the Internet or thinking of money rituals. I hope you heard the latest from your own backyard; Eastern region where a 17 years old JHS female student took her 15 years old cousin to Sunyani for money rituals but was unsuccessful? Indeed Akufo-Addo has been excellent in importing kidnapping business into Ghana, and I know you are aware of the 3 Takoradi kidnapped girls? There's an update on that, another was kidnapped yesterday in the same Takoradi and 3 days ago, there was another incident of kidnap in Ho, where and who the next victim is, I wouldn't know but probably you might be the next victim of kidnapping!

There's so much robbery, serial killings, suicides in the system now than ever, indeed Mr. President is unbelievably excellent! For the first time in Ghana, an investigative journalist has been killed, his crime is he abhoring corruption and exposing the criminals of the current regime. The truth is that Mr. President never even imagined he could be a President again after his unsuccessful attempts, all he intended was to create problems for JM by lying and promising big knowing very well he won't be president to be assessed so he seems so clueless on his job, he's always unaware of the evil happenings in his own government, so this regime is one presidency that would be neither here nor there, everywhere and nowhere, visible yet ineffectual, present yet absent in nature and action; the consequences being that, Ghana is no longer at ease, in fact things have fallen apart and the centre cannot hold, suffice it to say the blood-dimmed tide is loosed upon the world, and everywhere the ceremony of innocence is drowned!

Professor, as for the family and friends tag and huge government, I'm sure you've now seen the light? Because Akufo-Addo is running an Akyem league not a government! We now have not only family and friends, but business partners, concubines, baby mothers, side chicks, side hens etc government. You currently feature in the Akyem league too! For the first time in our history, and in the history of Africa, we have a government of 112 Ministers and deputies, who are overpaid tap dancers of appointees goofing on a daily basis more than blind horses in an empty band! I have never heard you criticise the family and friends elephant size government of Nana Addo, because he's your kinsman? Your hypocrisy smacks off tribalism. You and your so called co-wisemen took Mahama to the cleaners over crimes that never existed, you insulted him based on figments of your own imaginations, and now the tables has turned you all have suddenly become passive spectators.

Indeed, time they say sweeps everything along and it can bring good as well as evil and I dare say at no point in time would this adage ever be appropriately used than now! Which president Mahama family members was in charge of even a CRIPPLED CHICKEN or a PARALYZED RABBIT position that you couldn’t spare our ears with the noise of cronyism and nepotism in this country? You lack common sense!

The corruption you spared the Ponzi Nana Addo of is the weakest link of the already weak chain of his government. Nana Addo is extremely corrupt, he's the chief priest of corruption, supervising corruption morning, afternoon and evenings in his government. Hope you still remember the fraudulent Ken $2.25billion bond, which issuing was shrouded in secrecy and defied industry best practice principles?
