Team B’s Pungent Vulgarity: Mills Fails to Hear, See, or Smell It

*By Akadu Ntiriwa Mensema, Ph. D.

“A Deputy Minister of Information, Mr. S. Okudzeto Ablakwa, has described as
mischievous, deceitful and hypocritical, Nana Akufo-Addo’s recent controversial
statement that in ten years, he would take Ghana to the ‘Promised Land’ of
transformation and industrialization” (Ghanaweb March 19, 2011).

“Mr. Kobby Acheampong in recent times has insulted and denigrated residents of
Kumasi and the countryside, by his ‘infamous ‘cocoase kurasenii’ outburst. He
again, just last week, unprovoked, has described the Nana Akufo-Addo, as an
untidy person and a fruitcake (mad man)” (Ghanaweb March 22, 2010).
“The Deputy Minister of Water Resources, Works and Housing, Dr. Hannah Louisa
Bissiw, has lashed out at Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the New Patriotic Party
(NPP) Presidential candidate for the 2012 elections, describing him as a ‘sexy
old fool’ (Ghanaweb, March 23, 2011).
