Kwabena Agyepong & Paul Afoko Are Tickling Themselves and Laughing!

Behaving worse than children, Kwabena Agyei Agyepong, the General Secretary of NPP, and Paul Afoko, the Chairman of NPP, think the doubtful standing ovations they received meeting the NPP UK branch on Thursday 2 October 2014, are indications of how good they are in their post. They are to be reminded of the saying, “Actions speak louder than words”. From their actions and inactions made known to the public since their ascension to their posts, they can well be described as saboteurs rather than saviours, with regard to the cause and aspirations of the NPP to winning Election 2016.

Were the standing ovations accorded them not engineered by their UK counterparts who are as equally questionable of character as Kwabena Agyei Agyepong and Paul Afoko? I do not dote on sparing the rod because of family or friendly relationships; or for age-wise reason that calls for obligatory reverence for the person. I do always say it as it is, and should. This will prompt the person doing wrong or acting suspiciously to be aware of the fact that people are aware of their irresponsible acts and behaviours. This may help to change them for the better.

Yes, Kwabena Agyepong is my son by Ashanti custom, tradition and usage. Belonging in the same Agona clan as his late father Justice Agyepong of Oyoko- Ashanti (High Court Judge) who was murdered in cold blood by then Dracula Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings and his PNDC military junta on 30 June 1982, he is my son. My special relationship with his father’s relatives strengthens the existing traditional bond that obliges me to advice, warn, and chastise him same as his biological father would have done, when he is known or perceived to be erring.

“Spare the rod, and you spoil the child”, so a saying goes. Kwabena Agyepong has not only raised his shoulders, but also, sauntering down the streets of Accra with assumption of air of superiority that deceptively borders on arrogance and ignorance. He is being mischievous and distractive all probably for the rumoured reasons of convivially somersaulting in bed with the NDC, and also, for being an ardent, but one of the malevolent “Alan’s boys”. His actions and inactions are speaking volumes about him to all intelligent and honest NPP members and the discerning and suffering Ghanaian masses who hope for a change in national governance for the better.

Dr Kwadwo Afari Gyan, the Chairman of the Electoral Commission and his outfit are planning to rig Election 2016 two years well in advance for President Mahama and the NDC. We need to be writing and talking about this but the purposefully distractive attitudes and designs by the current NPP leadership are preventing us from discussing the uncovered criminal intentions of, and works by, the Electoral Commission. I shall be writing extensively about the underhand works in execution by Dr Kwadwo Afari Gyan, that shameless and corrupt septuagenarian who in his gluttonous quest for money, is doing whatever in his ability to rig the election for the NDC in 2016.

If Kwabena Agyei Agyepong and Paul Afoko think that simply giving them standing ovation is an indication of their acceptance to the broad NPP family for doing a commendable job in their posts, then they must be kidding, or not living in a dreamland. Their daily actions and inactions give them away. They are ruining the chances of NPP and Nana Akufo Addo winning election 2016. All their attempts will come to naught, by the grace of God, through the works of His designated servants of whom Rockson Adofo is one.

Whatever they do, and however they do it, Nana Akufo Addo will emerge victorious come 18 October 2014 and 2016.

Finally, what did they come to the United Kingdom to do at the Tory Party Conference held in Birmingham? Do they understand the essence of such party conferences? Did they meet any of the Tory party leaders? If they did, what discussions did they hold with them?

In the UK and other Western civilized democracies, yearly party conferences are held for the party members or party delegates to interact with their leaders who take the opportunity to inform them and the nation as following:

• The party leader, the Finance Minister and other ministers declare their policy achievements going from one sector of the economy to the other – Health, education, transportation, Agriculture, security of the nation, general welfare policies, employment etc.

• The leader states his plans for the coming year or the years ahead to achieving the party’s manifesto or promises made, but which are not yet met.

• Their invited special guests speak to lend credence to what the party leader or leaders are saying and how good that particular party staying in government is, to the nation and the citizens.

• They criticize their rival parties, pointing out such parties’ weaknesses, whether in government or in opposition, depending on from which party one is speaking.

• The conference is principally about informing the nation of what better things the party in government has done, their strengths, and what they will do and hence pleading with the voters to retain them in power. This is the case if the party in government and her delegates are hosting the conference. On the other hand if it is the opposition party, they tell what they will be doing, mention their past good records on achieved policies, their strengths and then the weaknesses of the party in government. With this, they plead with the nation and the voters to vote them to power in the next general elections rather than still retaining the party in government that is deemed clueless and incompetent of meeting the needs of the population.

Are Paul Afoko and Kwabena Agyei Agyepong going back to Ghana to continue with their hidden Agenda 2020 that will see NPP still stays in opposition, losing election 2016? What will have been the benefit to NPP and the suffering poor Ghanaians from their attending the UK Tory party conference of 2014?

They are not dealing with fools but highly intelligent, educated, honest, farsighted, discerning, although poor persons, so they have to be very careful. I am on their case from today forward!

I dedicate this publication to Nana Peter Antwi Boasiako from a village near Agona in the Ashanti region but now resident in London - UK. Is it Agona Bepoa? I know it is not Wiamoase. Peter, go back to enlighten listeners on the airwaves, especially those tuning in to Sources radio UK online.

Peter, please make it a date to meet me at the outdooring ceremony of DJ Source’s daughter on Saturday, 18 October 2014.
