No Difference Between Akufo-Addo & Akua Donkor

When a man is in the twilight of his uninspiring political career, and knows that he is about to walk into the wilderness of politics, he is capable of doing and saying all kinds of things.

When a man has spent his political life squeezing the buttocks of women (including that of the dead women), and fondling the breasts of makeup artists, in his moments of desperation, he can promise heaven on earth.
Akufo-Addo, the impish character, who convinces himself that he was born to rule Ghana, is once again exhibiting the rare form of desperation that he exhibited in 2008.
In 2008, Akufo-Addo went all over the country pledging $1billion to groups that he came across.
This time around, Akufo-Addo is promising a country where everything will be provided free.
According to the gospel of Akufo-Addo, education will be free; NHIS will be free; housing will be free; water will be free; transport will be free.
Akufo-Addo has become so desperate that his desperation has reached comical proportions.
Akufo-Addo is now behaving like an elephant engaged in a circus act.
Unfortunately for Akufo-Addo, this time around, he has a stiff competitor in the person of Madam Akua Donkor.
Akufo-Addo is not the only person in the FREE race; Madam Akua Donkor is miles ahead of him and he has a lot of catching up to do.
Indeed, Akufo-Addo and Madam Akua Donkor are providing the campaign with some much-needed comic relief.
Since the days of Kwame Nyante, who used the “Eye Apataa” slogan, this year’s election is providing political watchers with a kind of comic relief never experienced before.
Did we hear Madam Akua Donkor say that she will allow importers to bring in goods, free?
Did we hear Madam Akua Donkor that water and electricity will be free?
Did we hear Madam Akua Donkor say that journalists will be provided with free cars?
Did we hear Madam Akua Donkor say that she will give free petrol to journalists?
Did we hear Madam Akua Donkor say that housewives will be given free cash to go to market?
So what is the difference between Madam Akua Donkor and Akufo-Addo?
There is a joke doing the rounds that among his FREE promises, Akufo-Addo has also promised free sex and free abortion.
Free sex and free abortion? Lord, have mercy!!!
How desperate can Akufo-Addo be?
Honestly, left to The Informer alone, Akufo-Addo should have been disqualified alongside Madam Akua Donkor.
Yes, Akufo-Addo is not different from Madam Akua Donkor; they are in the same FREE sinking ship and Akufo-Addo should have been allowed to drown with Madam Akua Donkor.
Akufo-Addo has succeeded in making a mockery of himself with his unrealistic gargantuan promises, and even mental patients are laughing at him.
Yes, inmates of Pantang and Asylum Mental Hospitals are poking fun at Akufo-Addo.
Ghanaians certainly have a good sense of humour, but they are not fools!!
Ghanaians are not fools, and if Akufo-Addo thinks he is fooling Ghanaians, then he is fooling himself.
Akufo-Addo is not fooling anybody; he is fooling himself, Ursula Owusu, Anthony Karbo, Sammy Awuku and co.
Does Akufo-Addo really think he is making sense with his latest gargantuan “toli” about building 200,000 housing units every year?
Is Akufo-Addo sure that he was not high on some illegal substance at the time he was making the gargantuan promise?
Honestly, it is only a person who is consistently high on some illegal material who will be making the kinds of unimaginable promises that he is making.
And did we hear baby-face Bawumia say that the NPP will build 350 new SHS structures?
Is Bawumia now plagiarising the manifesto of the NDC?
Since when did the NPP wake up to the realisation that it is important to put up structures?
Have they not been preaching their senseless and empty free SHS sermon and laughing at the NDC for talking about eliminating schools-under-trees?
So they have woken up from their stupor and now support the agenda of the NDC?
We thank God for His little mercies.
The Informer is pleased to note that President Mahama is not panicking one bit at the comical stance of Akufo-Addo and the NPP, and is staying focused on preaching a realistic and feasible message to the electorate.
The Informer is convinced that Akufo-Addo is digging his own political grave via the way he insults the intelligence of Ghanaians, and come December 07, 2012, majority of the electorate will BE BOLD and show Akufo-Addo the door out of Ghana’s political arena.
Until then, Akufo-Addo and Madam Akua Donkor should, please, continue to flood the political atmosphere with their comical FREE promises so that we can enjoy the circus acts to release tension.
Akufo-Addo; “ye ma wu duei ne amanihunu!!!
