Has Ghana Been Taken Hostage Mentally By China's Leaders?

Has Ghana Been Taken Hostage Mentally By China's Leaders?
LISTEN FEB 13, 2020

As regards the massive influence China is said to have over Ghana, the question we must ponder over is: Perchance, are those who posit that the people who now lead our nation, are beholden to China, to the point that they are petrified of the reaction of China, in everything they do, as a Government, right in saying so?

According to such analysts, so frightened are Ghana's current leaders, of China, that they fear that evacuating Ghanaian students studying in China, and bringing them back home, will be bad PR for China globally. Eeiiii, Oman Ghana - enti yewieye paaa, enei? Eyeasem, ooooo. Hmmmm...

Consequently - so goes the argument - the current regime's most influential figures are thus prepared to sacrifice the lives of those poor students, for that reason: and will thus leave them there till the coronavirus emergency is declared over by the Chinese authorities - however long that takes.

The same fear-laden-phenomenon, apparently also applies to the untenable and obdurate refusal of the government of President Akufo-Addo to reverse the incredibly-stupid and shortsighted decision to allow bauxite mining in the Atewa Forest Reserve. Alas, such is how foolish African nations have been taken hostage, mentally, by sundry imperialists and neocolonialists, since time immemorial. Hmmmm. Eyeasem, ooooo - asem kesie ebeba debi ankasa. Yooooo...
