NPP Are Cowards

It is cynical for the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) to sit on the sidelines and allowing these criminal and uneducated fools from the National Democratic Congress NDC to take the entire country for a ride. How in the world can NPP members in Ghana not see what is happening in the country while many of us who are living outside the country knows much about the dubious activities that have taken place from Attah Mills administration? Those within the country seem to know nothing. This is a hypocritical mentality from these NPP members who continue to look the other way instead of defending the ordinary people and informing the media about what is going on within Attah Mills inner circle.

For the fist time in our dear country’s political history a democratically elected president and the citizens have experienced the hypocritical and criminal leadership of John Evens Attah Mills and NDC founder Jerry John Rawlings. Mills was able to bribe his boss Jerry John Rawlings for five million dollars in his first years in office to keep him silent but that did not work. The opposition could not do any thing about it. I challenge the NPP to name a president who has ever come to office and awarded
the nation’s money to keep one silent while the opposition is unable to divine the motives behind this free money handed over to this criminal Jerry Rawlings.

Since the NDC has come back to power, the finance Minister, who was the NDC political financer suppoter and spent millions of dollars gained in shadowy deals under the first NDC regime, has had the audacity to go to the media with his ignorant utterances and lie about the nation’s economic progress. At the same time he has increasingly insulted the NPP while nobody is saying anything to him. (Mills and Kwabena Duffour) In mere two years of administration in governing the nation Mills have borrowed excessive amount of over 11 billion dollars. This is more than any president in the history of our dear nation and will exacerbate the serious financial crisis, in the future for the entire nation. In addition some members from NPP who are finance committee members in parliament have kept quiet on these issues. The NPP administration left office in 2008 on a sound financial foundation. Now these criminals are creating huge debts again for the nation.

Now in Ghana everybody wants to go into politics including some idiots who believe that they can reap outrageous rewards for themselves their family and friends and even sycophants. From 2004 to 2007 during the NPP administration, NPP leaders and their communication detector allowed a foreigner to come into the country for a economical purpose and attack NPP elites on negative motives and fabricated stories, calling them criminals and out of touch with the ordinary. This Togolese Fifi Kwetey comes from Anehor in Togo. His parents immigrated to the central region in Ghana as economical carpetbaggers and he has the audacity to take the nation and its indigenous people for a ride. Based on his pathological lies about the NPP, the NDC administration rewarded him a deputy Minister of finance position to a foreigner. What a shame! As a result of this a man who has no skills in finance Kwetey now goes to school in London from Monday to Friday and returns to Ghana every weekend and returns Sunday night back to London of the taxpayer’s expense. All these while NPP members have kept quiet about this political nonsense. This is sad for all Ghanaians to allow foreigners to come in and take advantage of them. The story’s to be continued
