The woes of Effutuman ending soon

Rumour has it that a certain crook-cum-lawyer, whose motto is ‘my way and no other way’, and who in the recent past had most of his fraudulent judgments secured at the Winneba High Court overturned by the Supreme Court, has assured his fellow crook, who was dismissed from his job as Vice-Chancellor (VC) of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW) that he is preparing the seat he once occupied for him.

And rumour has confirmed that the said dismissed Professor, foolishly swallowed this bait and is now dolling out hundreds of thousands of Ghana cedis to his nemesis-turned-friend. Because this crook is not having his way in plundering the funds of UEW, he has suddenly made a u-turn to partner with this dismissed Professor, who holds the record of the most corrupt head of an educational institution in Ghana’s history in order to achieve his selfish ambition.

Someone has already dug his own grave and is about to be buried pretty soon. Thank God the leadership of this country is aware that this crook of a lawyer is a serial liar and untrustworthy, and therefore deserve no significant appointment, other than a job reserved for retiring politicians, which he will be removed from sooner rather than later and face possible charges of causing financial loss to the state.

One would have expected that as a lawyer he would be bold as brass, and author articles in his real name, but alas, that isn’t the case. He has authored and published several articles under pseudo names to tarnish the reputations of notable and respectable members of society.

He has also written under pseudo names to the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE), etc, calling for investigations into matters that he has dreamed of. He has also written under pseudo names aimed at tarnishing the reputation of James Kofi Annan, the Member of Parliament for Effutu in-waiting, come December 2020.

The President of the Republic is clever enough to fall for such plain lies from fraudsters.
