Mahama & NDC’s Infatuation With Sanitary Pads is Amazing!

If my memory serves me right, it’s not long ago that Koku Anyidohu suggested amid teasing that Secondary school girls must be supplied with free sanitary pads. When Nana Akufo Addo proposed Free Senior High School (SHS) education for Ghana in his election 2012 manifesto, then Communications Director at the Presidency, Mr Koku Anyidohu, rubbished the intended policy. He queried if the Free SHS will come with free sanitary pads as his niece, then a student, would need them but free.

Is it the idea of Koku Anyidohu that President Mahama must supply free sanitary pads alongside his proposed, but borrowed idea of free SHS, from Nana Akufo Addo? John Mahama shamelessly rubbished Nana Addo’s free SHS but he is now going for it. What a myopic individual he is?

Why are these NDC gurus so much infatuated with sanitary pads? Can’t they purchase sanitary pads for their girlfriends out of the abundance of their wealth so fraudulently acquired?

I will be treating this issue of sanitary pads further in my next write-up where the Executive and the Legislature will be questioned on their intelligence, honesty and dedication to be of selfless service to both mother Ghana and humanity. Have they cruised for a bruising by their action? I don’t know but we live to see.

Why are fools always taking others for fools in their mind-sets and by their actions? What does President Mahama take Ghanaians for, if not for fools who double as cowards and also cringe when they hear his name mentioned?
