An open letter to Ex- President Mahama

Former President John Dramani Mahama Former President John Dramani Mahama

Dear Ex- President Mahama, I bring you greetings from Obuasi (the golden city) where you grossly and incompetently supervised the collapse of the Anglogold Ashanti company before exiting office.

Dear Sir, I am without doubt and with an extreme optimism that this letter will attract your "focal lenses".

Your recent comment on chairman Ofosu Ampofo's invitation by the Ghana police service has forced me to reach out to you this morning. Having risen from the ranks of an assemblyman to becoming a member of parliament, a deputy minister, a substantive minister, a vice President and eventually a President, your experience speaks for itself.

Unfortunately, your utterances coupled with your body language give a "freewill" to a cross section of Ghanaians to look at you through a "miasma of negative attitudes".

Your knee-jerk reactions to each and every single step that this administration takes smacks in me some kind of deep seated intellectual impotence.

Dear former President Mahama, your open display of ignorance has forced me to school you without a "kobo", that the mere invitation of Ofosu Ampofo by the C.I.D does not automatically "metamorphosize" into "prison sentence" without hearing "guilty or not guilty".

May be for parochial interests, you know the truth but seek to display myopism and flowery language in order to camouflage your hypocrisy. Suffice to say that those of us who know what this government is all about will tell you that this time round you misfired.

I don't intend to write thesis, for duty is calling.

I advice you this morning to put a spontaneous full stop to your recent "media organism" and allow the procesess to work.

I hope that you will give this piece of writing your favourable considerations and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
