Ghana parliamentarians, politicians should emulate their counterparts in Singapore

File Photo File Photo

I am not here to preach to anyone but to tell Ghanaians and their politicians, especially the parliamentarians, the gospel truth. Subsequently, I will quote them a bible verse to buttress my contention as to strongly advising them without any ifs or buts, to learn from the good ways of others to develop Ghana to the admiration of all honest, sensible and selfless Ghanaians.

In Proverbs 6:6-8, it says “Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! 7 It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, 8 yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest”.

Following from the above biblical wise saying, I shall ask, but not request, the ensemble of Ghana parliamentarians to go to Singapore, learn their ways, and do same in Ghana. As we are in the technological, thus internet, age, I shall save Ghana money by not flying all the parliamentarians to Singapore but rather bring the way-forward-intelligence of the Singaporean parliament to Ghana parliamentarians here in this publication.

I find it completely shocking, annoying and nonsensically criminal to see Ghana parliamentarians from the two divides, thus the majority from the ruling party and the minority from the opposition side, never agreeing on most policies despite such policies being formulated in good faith and for the collective benefit of Ghanaians and the nation.

For their malicious selfish agenda, which is not in the best interest of the public, they will always have absurd reasons to oppose or scupper such policies. However, in Singapore, both the majority side and the minority side of parliamentarians are strongly admonished to evaluate any policy proposition by the government and as may be put forward by the majority side and if it is good, they have to support it. Similarly, if such a proposition is opposed by the opposition side with good reasons assigned, or if the opposition side propose something that is good, it must be accepted, and implemented. This is what they have been doing hence Singapore emerging from the dungeon of extreme poverty to become an extremely prosperous nation to the envy of many a struggling nation.

Please watch the video below to ascertain for yourselves the veracity of my assertion and how ingenuous, far-thinking and serious the Singaporean leaders are to building their nation for the collective benefit of their entire Singaporean citizenry. Their selfless attitude is in complete divergence from what is seen happening on daily basis in Ghana parliament.

In Ghana, the president, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, who I prefer to address as the modern day biblical David or Joseph, has good intentions for Ghana. As good intentions alone cannot bring about the world peace unless they are backed up by practical implementations, the president is seen to be doing exactly so. However, his rivals in opposition, the NDC bandwagon so to speak, have embarked on criminal activities to render ineffective his good policies and programmes.

Will the maliciously criminal behaviours of the NDC have a place in Singapore parliament or in the country, going by the content of the video and many such videos on the good governance of the nation as are available on YouTube? No!! If they did, they would be arrested and thrown into jail, period!

The Free Senior High School education was envisioned by the far-thinking “Akyem kwaa” Nana Addo, and has now been implemented. The policy/programme is to enhance the knowledge of many a Ghanaian citizen as possible to enable them become competitive in the global market. It is to build the human resource base of the country to serve as, a springboard to catapult us into the sphere of prosperous economic transformation, or the platform for the prosperity of the nation to take off.

When many Ghanaians are educated, can read and write, they will easily understand that when Rockson Adofo writes one or two sentences saying corruption is ruinous to the nation and many Ghanaians, they will easily understand, do their own research to confirm or disagree with Rockson, the son of Kumawu/Asiampa. With this ease of understanding, he will no longer be verbose with his write-ups, going to the lengths to explain himself but rather be short and sweet.

The NDC National Chairman Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, a criminal who is saintly adored as an Elder at the Pentecost Church, hatches plans to kill, kidnap, and insult and cause arsons in Ghana. The Ghana laws and judicial system as toothless as they are before politicians and big time criminals, have almost left this man free to continue to open up his stinking mouth. Again, that inimical liar and loudmouth, Sammy Gyamfi, a purported lawyer who does not comprehend the seriousness of defamation of character and falsification of documents is seen or alleged to be doing same with impunity.

When the Electoral Commission (EC) is mandated to do their work without interference from whomsoever, former President John Dramani Mahama, NDC General Secretary John Asiedu Nketiah, NDC Communications member Sammy Gyamfi and many others are beating the war drum that should the EC carry out her mandate, they will burn Ghana. Should I call these people as inane, fools or what?

These people and their actions will have no place in Singapore, I bet you! They will long have been thrown into jail.

Ghanaians, please let us wise up. Don’t let us allow selfishly greedy bastards to play on our intelligence. Don’t sell your conscience and vote for a pittance only to bite your finger in regret at long last.

The visionless NDC folks are spreading false rumours all with intent to deceive the public to reject the NPP to vote for the NDC. Please fellow Ghanaians, don’t believe them for they are like Satan that comes to rob, kill and spoil.

Again, watch the following video on how Singapore did it and continue to do it to succeed. They have set the precedent for a developing country like Ghana to copy in her anticipations for socio-economic emancipation. I hope the president will also be guided by the content of this video.

The old man, Rockson Adofo, from Kumawu/Asiampa, loves his motherland Ghana so he is always coming out with suggestions in the best interest of the nation and the people. All that it takes for his suggestions to work is to do them, share them and be positive-minded when applying them without leaving room for the dubious politicians, e.g. the NDC, to plant a seed of doubt in your mind.

Fellow Ghanaians, let us all be cooperative. Let us all see sense in the style of governance by the Singapore leadership. Let us all emulate the precedent set by the Singaporeans and finally, let us support Nana Akufo-Addo and his NPP government to achieve all their noble policies and programmes for Ghana and for Ghanaians.

I invite you all to drink from the ever overflowing fountain of wisdom of the son of Kumawu Asiampa, Rockson Adofo, the defender of the defenceless and the voice for the voiceless. Kumawuman shall be free from the suppression of the supposedly traditional overlords but who are indeed lawless and criminals!

With God on our side, dedication to duty, compassion, dynamism, positivity, honesty and being as wise as the serpent to detect the deceit by the enemies, we shall succeed.

I salute you all!

Rockson Adofo
