Are We That Foolish in Addition To Our Poverty?

Upper East Region - among the four poorest regions in Ghana - that's my home region - for those who don't know, and wants to know.

I am truly sad at how Our brother Adams Mahama the npp regional chairman was assasinated ?#?charliehebdostyle?.

I know Adams, but not at a personal level. He Is young, rich and famous guy in the UE region. He has always been a private contractor since i knew him in my J.S.S days at Bolgatanga, estates.

He only recently ventured into active politics with his election as npp regional chairman. Until then, he was apparently an aid to the late vice President of Ghana Alhaji Aliu Mahama.

I Heard the man on radio a couple of days ago. And today He Is dead - killed by his own brothers. I have seen pictures of his acid laden body on social media.

It Is truly sad that this fine gentleman should be killed by our own brothers because of npp party politics. Why?? Are we that foolish in addition to Our poverty? Is the NPP the "property" of the UER?

I vividly remember President Kufour explaining why he could not visit our region because it is too far from Accra and has no airport. But today, some barbaric brothers have sacrificed a great young man of the region in such a cheap fashion on the altar of npp politics.

If this is not FOOLISHNESS, what Is it?? This barbarism must cease now!
