Opposition bound, no need for any plagiarised 72% achievement prove

What am I hearing from the Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah? That government is to prove 72% manifesto achievement on January 27. They should keep that prove to themselves. Ghanaians are not ready to be told what they have achieved. After all, the eating is in the pudding and we all can see and feel the abysmal performance of this government. Maybe the 72% prove may include plagiarised projects. Who does not know that this government stock-in-trade is plagiarising?

Aside from the failed implemented free SHS, I hope one of the achievements to prove on January 27 must be the fact that the Sleeping General has slept during public gathering both home and abroad more than any President in Ghana's history.

In a quest to prove that Ghana Beyond Aid was active on paper and not a mere talk by the President, look at the cover of the document that was published? A plagiarised Kenya skyline.

This government led by President Nana Akufo Addo always want to prove independent CSOs and individuals wrong and by so doing exposes itself to public ridicule.

It was this same government during its plagiarised inaugural speech that asked Ghanaians to be citizens and not spectators. When citizens are playing their role by telling you their candid view on your performance, you say no. But rather want to mark yourself undeserving high mark. Which student wouldn't mark himself or herself a high mark?

I hope in the process of marking itself, this government does not plagiarise again. Whether it marks itself or not and proves it has achieved even 200% of its promises. The die has already been cast in favor of this NPP government going into opposition.

I shall return
