Is Paul Afoko’s Suspension Not a Blessing in Disguise?

Whoever has no sense of responsibility and discernment, let them shed tears for Paul Afoko, the suspended NPP Chairman. I will rather shed crocodile tears for him, were I to be compelled to shed any tears at all.

What are crocodile tears, a reader may wish to know? "They are tears that you cry when you are not really sad or sorry. An insincere show of sympathy or sadness; crocodiles were once thought to "weep" large tears before they ate their victims".

Who in Ghana, especially those in NPP, does not know that Paul Afoko like Kwabena Agyapong was working against not only the interest of NPP but also, the wishes of all the suffering Ghanaian masses that are making daily supplications to God to bring about a change in government for the better? He was certainly a mole planted in NPP by the NDC.

Is it not said, "Action speaks louder than words?" Does the bible not say, "By their actions ye shall know them?" By Paul Afoko's actions, he was a complete saboteur for all stupid reasons. He was working against NPP to ensure the continuous stay in power for the most corrupt President and party (NDC) that Ghana has ever seen in her history since attaining political independence from the British Colonial masters.

If Afoko were a Whiteman and with a heart of concern for the suffering Ghanaian masses, he would on his own volition have resigned his position long ago. He would not have stayed a day longer in his post when many people started voicing out strong concerns about his allegiance to NPP. However, being a black man with a typical Ghanaian mindedness, he decided to become an "Osuo abrobo3 – wo tim nea otim", only to be pushed over the precipice instead of jumping himself.

His lawyers can go to hell if they so desire. Paul Afoko cannot impose himself on anyone. Who will be so stupid to employ his bitterest enemy, someone full of malice and with intent to sabotage him, to work for him? If you unknowingly did employ such a person, once you discover his or her intentions, will you not sack them?

In the best interest of NPP and the suffering Ghanaian masses that are clamouring for a better government by an alternative political party other the known corrupt NDC; Paul Afoko should accept his suspension peacefully without any hullaballoos.
