“When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign - that the dunces are all in a confederacy against him.” Believe me, when Jonathan Smith made that deduction, there was no doubt whatsoever that he had Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Flag-bearer of the Nipa Pa Party (Ameyo Tuwo Party) in mind. You see, the moment they hear of Nana’s name, all the dunces in the country congregate together like the Gang of Four did after the death of Mao Tse Tsung in Communist China.
Albert Einstein even went a step further to prophesy about the sterling qualities of Akufo- Addo. Hear him: “Great Spirits have always encountered violent opposition from violent minds”. Because of our Flag-bearer’s undaunting spirits, which against all odds make him wax stronger and taller by the day, members of the Nefarious Contraption cannot fathom the level and source of his inspiration. This has resulted in the formation of such an unholy alliance against him.
At the arrow head of such alliance is their terminator in Chief, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa and his latter day saints like Kwadwo Twum Boafo and Felix Owusu Kwakye, who hereafter are referred to as “The Gang of Three”. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has been attacking our Flag-bearer with all the venom in his spleen right from the inception of Baba Go Slow’s Administration. Not satisfied with that, the “terminator-in-Chief” has borrowed some poisoned darts from the quiver of the likes of John Abu Jinapor, Kobby Acheampong, Richard Quarshiga, Inusah Fuseini, Baba Jamal, Nii Lante Vanderpuye, Omane Boamah, Allottey Jacobs, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, Stan Dogbe, Anita de Souza, Hannah Bissiw, and of course, our own “whimsical’ and “capricious” Koku Anyidoho himself. All these people have one devilish and wicked agenda in common: - a strong hatred and phobia for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
Every patriotic Ghanaian knows that our lame duck President is a complete antithesis of what he (Baba Go Slow) promised Ghanaians. Instead of giving us the Brave New World, the President has given us the State of Nature. Everybody knows too well that what the President is giving us is poverty-owning democracy. The only people not feeling the crunch are the numerous appointees and hangers on in his administration. And Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo hit the nail right on the head when he said that the rapacious band of nation wreckers have turned the country into a poverty-owning democracy. All hell was let loose. And guess the person the Nefarious Destructive Cancer sent to do the hatchet job on Nana. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa!
I shall do an analytical dissection of the points he raised in his response to Nana’s statement in my next write-up. For now, my focus is on the Deputy Minister of Misinformation and his acolytes.
I wonder why the Nefarious Contraption still relies on this archetype of a liar. But, I am not surprised because, going by the name of the party, the word, “nefarious” connotes something evil or criminal. Okudzeto Ablakwa is a person who has lost all sense of decency and his Ghanaian traits by descending into the gutter by his public utterances. I am sure the devil himself will reject him if he were to be sent into the kingdom of darkness where he rightly belongs. Here is a person who has been lying since childhood so much so that lying second nature. Who can beat him at his own game? None that I can conjecture at the moment! Not even amongst members from his own fraternity can any of them march him on their way to purgatory.
Here is a Deputy Misinformation Minister, who, in less than two months after his appointment was sent on a shopping spree to Macy’s in New York to replenish his ward-robe. He made this declaration on air that when he went there that Macy’s and others had closed down.
Here is a Deputy Misinformation Minister who exhibited his ingratitude to his step father by “white washing” him in public by stating that he earns only Ghc2,000.00 a month and asks rhetorically whether the step father expected he, Okudzeto Ablakwa to steal money to satisfy the ravenous appetite of the former(his step father).
Here was an over ambitious young man carved in the mien of Macbeth who “conned” people into believing that he was part of their own fraternity to “fleece” them of their money so that he could contest the NUGS Presidency. He won but because he chose the primrose way to success, he had destruction awaiting him at the apogee of his success. As it was in the beginning, so shall it be at the end.
Was it not this ‘glutton’ of a liar who told Ghanaians the mother of all lies – that the Baba Go Slow’s administration has created One Million Six Hundred Thousand jobs, a contention which has been denied and ridiculed by the substantive sector Minister? Infact, this young, abrasive but timorous personality was once a sheep but has mutated to become one of the ravening wolves in the country.
But Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa and his colleagues make me laugh. Their actions and utterances are quixotic like the legendary Don Quixote. What they are seeing are mere hallucinations. They, like the large number of their colleagues in the nefarious contraption do not understand the import of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s statements. They are as confused as the entire NDC apparatus, and in his confused state of mind, he, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa is ranting like an ant.
You see, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa’s mindset is based on his phobia of the NPP, particularly Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. He therefore cannot concentrate on anything because he sees in Nana a threat to the looting spree he and members of his contraption are engaged in, and in their efforts to cover their nefarious deeds, they have thrown caution to the wind and use uncomplimentary language against one of the decent and honest Ghanaians to bestride the political corridors in the country.
It is only under Mills Government that we will have a political neophyte like Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa as Deputy Minister at a very sensitive Ministry like that of “Mis information”. What major pronouncements have come out of the mouth of this confused, arrogant, incompetent and disorientated individual whose mouth on daily basis pours out filth and utter rubbish which are not fit for human consumption? Where, in the rest of the civilized world, apart from Mills Ghana, will this ingrate and insatiable individual be considered for appointment into the civil service, not to talk of making him a Deputy Minister of a highly sensitive ministry as that of Information?
Was his appointment meant to prepare the grounds for the confusion, ‘akakabensen’ atuturuasem’ and ‘patapaasem’ that the NDC is preparing to plunge the county into during the December, 2012 Elections? If that is their mindset, then I will advise them to discard that notion for” accursed be that mind that nurtures such a heinous crime against mother Ghana, for such a notion will reinvigorate the docile parts of Ghanaians. We shall resist all attempts by the nefarious contraption to perpetrate an electoral coup against mother Ghana. We shall defend our ballot boxes with every legitimacy of our breath. We shall resist and nip all their nefarious plans in the bud. We are confident that we shall succeed. This is because we have the constitution to guide us, we have the people behind us and we have God to inspire us
Let not Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa think that he is better than other Ghanaians. Let me state here for the avoidance of doubts that his uncouth language on his perceived political enemies,(particularly, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo),ignorance, insolence, indiscipline, ingratitude, impudence unre4strained devilish traits have all depicted him as someone “despicable”
It is sad to conjecture that a young lad of Samuel Okudzeto’s status could for pittance and nook fio allow himself to be used as arrow head against a fine statesman of an honest mien.
Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo’s agenda is in line with what Shantideva said: ‘All the joy the world contains has come through wishing happiness for others. But all the misery the world (Ghana) contains has come through (Mills) wanting pleasure for he and his cronies” The stones that Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa and his “partners in crime” are casting at Nana will be the very ones Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo will use to build new roads for the country.
John Mason says we “were all born as original. Don’t die a copy” Maybe Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa is different. He might not have been born and original and so prefers to die a copy.
