NDC’S Hypocrite President Insults Ashanti’s

Whistle- blowing Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has leaked confidential information to the public from the U.S Embassy profiles that involves some Foreign Ministers, Ambassador’s and some presidents secret conversation. More essentially it has exposed the NDC president, John Evans Fiifi Attah Mills. Mills was heard insulting and being disrespectful to the Ashanti’s.
Cynically, the majority of Ghanaian media who have this information have kept quiet over this tribalistic sentiment from this hypocrite, a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Attah Mills thinks he is above reproach. However if this were the NPP sitting president who made these comments on some ethnic groups in Ghana, the whole world would have heard of it by now. This is to shows one how much influence this Impudent Attah Mills has over with the Journalist within the country.
My fellow countrymen and women, this Attah Mills has continued to show his personal animosity towards the Ashanti’s through his conversation with the American ambassador in Ghana. If he still believes in his own feeble mind that respect is a gift which everyone in Ghana will automatically give him, he will soon learn after this idiot reads this article that true respect is not a gift but rather something one has to earn. Attah Mills went to the American Embassy saying to the Ambassador “He hit the Ashanti’s domination in the country and he can’t stand them”.

Such a statement from a sitting president in Ghana is indubitably preposterous. It is outrageous for any president or any section of Ghanaian humanity to cavalierly and facilely think they can presume to insult the indigenous Ashanti’s in the country. This aforementioned idiotic knucklehead is mistaken and dreaming. I can promise you all this, including this lunatic president that nobody can push the Ashanti’s over so long as almighty God is alive. Even the Whiteman could not push Ashanti’s around. How then can anybody even think that now?. As American teenagers says I’m “dead ass,” meaning he is serious about the language is using so back off. Attah Mills needs to watch his utterances about the Ashanti. The Irony is that those who liberally demonize Ashanti’s and call them by all sorts of abominable names are also the very ones whose ancestors saved the Ashanti’s as their personal slaves.
History will justify that during the colonial era there was difficulties and serious inconveniences. When the Whiteman invaded our country the Ashanti’s were not like this Impudent Attah Mills’s ancestors. The Ashanti’s fought hard to overcome those invaders. They were brave and zealous to save the entire Akan tradition. They did so because they were not just demanding mere whisky alcohol, or mirrors just to look over themselves, as others who now claim they have common sense did. It is no wonder that since Attah Mills came to office he has abandoned every infrastructure project the NPP started in Ashanti region. Mr. my brothers and sisters and his cronies will soon hear from me. Stay tuned for the next article.
