“Akufo-Addo Makes More Sense When He Is Silent” Owula Mangotey

As it continues to be obvious that NPP Flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo has no sensible message/ alternative plan for Ghanaians, public opinion seems to be weighing in favour of Akuffo-Addo keeping his mouth shut since anytime he opens it, he makes it very obvious that his skull is full of sawdust.
A social commentator and political watcher, Owula E.T Mangotey, has stated categorically that Akufo-Addo is better off keeping his mouth shut as it has become as clear as daylight that anytime he opens his mouth, he worsens his already worse situation of not reaching out to the majority of Ghanaians.
Commenting on Akufo-Addo’s senseless talk that President Mills has turned Ghana into a “Poverty Owning Democracy”, Owula said that the NPP flagbearer does not seem to know what he is talking about.
Speaking on Radio Gold’s Alhaji & Alhaji programme last Saturday, Owula did not mince his words at all in taking Akufo-Addo to the cleaners for his loose talk.
Speaking again on ETV’s Morning Show programme yesterday, Owula again fired salvos at Akufo-Addo; asking the NPP flagbearer to keep quiet if he has nothing sensible to say.
According to the firebrand Owula, Akufo-Addo should be the last person talking about poverty in Ghana because even in his own Akyem Abuakwa South Constituency, he did nothing to alleviate the suffering of his people.
“Are the chiefs and people in Akufo-Addo’s backyard not commending President Mills for using 2 years to do what Akufo-Addo could not do in 8 years as a Cabinet Minister as well as 12 years as an MP? So what the heck is Akufo-Addo talking about?” Owula asked rhetorically.
“As MP, was he not more interested in legislating for Ghanaians convicted abroad for drug trafficking to come home to ostensibly serve their jail term, instead of legislating to eradicate poverty?” Owula asked again rhetorically.
According to Owula, President Atta Mills is certainly not a saint who has not finished solving Ghana’s problems in 2 years, but the verdict is out that the President is sturdily rebuilding the Ghana that, Kufuor, Akufo-Addo, and the NPP looting brigade destroyed in the 8 years that Ghanaians made a monumental mistake and allowed them the NPP to mismanage the affairs of state.
“If Akufo-Addo does not know; I am reminding him that silence is golden” Owula said.
“He is not doing his image any good with his careless and empty talk and the earlier he shuts up, the better it would be for him” Owula added.
According to Owula, if Akufo-Addo and his cabal are poor because the cocaine trade is no longer flourishing waa waa waa, they should say so and stop creating the impression that President Mills has destroyed Ghana.
Owula E.T. Mangotey, who has been operating from South Korea since 2007, cannot understand why Akufo-Addo and his advisors would not crack their brains and come out with a comprehensive roadmap for Ghana but rather keep resorting to cheap and infantile politics which only tend to anger the electorate.
Time without number, Akufo-Addo, most certainly high on a combination of wee and cocaine, talks a load of crap.
Without any comprehensive policy alternative, the NPP Flagbearer has adopted the modus operandi of his party’s illiterate serial callers, and opens his mouth before applying his “toasted” brain cells.
Since he succeeded in foisting himself on the party at its Kumasi congress last year, Akufo-Addo is yet to make a single sensible statement.
Ever since Akufo-Addo became the Flagbearer of the NPP last year, every word that has fallen from his lips is besmeared with stench.
It would be recalled that before he was foisted on the party as flagbearer, Akufo-Addo held a press conference at Osu Presby Conference Hall, where he called on his wee-choked and cocaine-filled militants to wage war on innocent Ghanaians.
True to word, the militants wasted no time in obeying the orders of their master and went on a rampage beating innocent people – especially, supporters of Allan Kyeremanteng.
At the apogee of the bestial acts of Akufo-Addo’s militants, a certain Haruna Mahama pounced upon a certain Michael Ampong in the studios of Asempa FM and would have beaten the life out of the chap but for the timely intervention of staff of the radio station.

After calling his militants into action, Akufo-Addo then did a most despicable thing by eulogizing the “bottoms” of the late Theresa Amerlye Tagoe when the latter was laid in state.

Akufo-Addo chose none other than the solemn platform of the funeral of Theresa Tagoe, to tell the whole world what he used to do with the “bottoms” when the woman was alive. How disgraceful!!

As if that was not enough, Akufo-Addo then went to Koforidua where he beat his war drums with his infamous “All die be die” war cry.

Also at Koforidua, Akufo-Addo went ahead to preach Akan superiority with his equally infamous “Yen Akanfuor” silly talk.

Most certainly, Owula E.T Mangotey is right because if Akufo-Addo had kept his mouth shut over the period, nobody would know that his head is filled with sawdust as well as the fact that he draws his inspiration from wee and cocaine.
