My take on Afoko’s suspension

Having regard to the degree of arrogance, pomposity, inhumanity and intensity of cruelty exhibited by Paul Afoko, I knew that his dream was going to be aborted. However, I tried to glue my buccal cavity to prevent further stories from germinating.
Folks, there comes a time in every man’s life where he has to face the truth. Spare the rod and spoil the child, so says the Holy Bible. The New Patriotic Party (NPP) is older and bigger than Afoko, so it will not take Afoko to strangulate and eventually kill the party.
I fully support the decision of the National Executive Committee (NEC). Yes,-as a human institution, I expect some people to be aggrieved. But my advice to them is to seek redress from within otherwise, their exercise will be fruitless.
What beats my imagination is the recent link of Afoko’s suspension to ethnocentrism/tribalism by the “educated illiterates” in the National Democratic Congress (NDC). Ooh God. When will these nincompoops learn sense at all? A bird whispered into my ears that, their general secretary, GENERAL MOSQUETO took a payable loan of GH?50,000.00 to go to the states to purchase SENSE from a pharmaceutical company for all NDC executives of which the president is not exempted. I laughed my head off when I heard this development. I am not surprise anyway, if you have a political party with a mosquito as a general secretary and a DEAD GOAT as a leader, you should expect nothing but GABBAGE IN-GABBAGE OUT.
What happened to the man who tried to contest president Mahama in the up-coming presidential primaries? We were told he had no form. When he proved to the nation that he has a form, we were told that his form was not authentic. When he proved that his form was authentic, we were again told that his form was not from the right source and that a party accountant issued it to him. After all these “Kwaku Ananse” stories, the accountant who has served the party for DONKEY YEARS was finally forced through the outlet. What a shame?
On what grounds are the NDCs pushing Afoko to go to court for? Why are they even crying more than the owner of the corps? I am not a “legal luminary” so legal gymnastics are not captured in my dictionary but common sense has always been my principles. Let me make it clear to the Omane Boamahs, Appaks, Mosquitoes and the likes that, the NPPs are ever ready to call the spade a spade and not a big spoon.
The NPP has taken the right step and the right route. After all, the NDC did not die off silly when Dr. Obed Asamoah and Kofi Adams were suspended.
Comrades, the more I write, the more my blood vessels become warm. Let me put a spontaneous full stop here for now. I shall be back with more fire works on this same platform.
God bless al my readers, God bless mother Ghana.
