President Mills, the Konongo Kaya

“The evil that men do will always live after them.” The NDC principle which was established on the ideals and principle of Probity, Accountability, Integrity, Social Justice and Fellow feeling has now become a vehicle for which greedy cabals like Ato Ahwoi, Kwamena Ahwoi, Kwesi Ahwoi, Kofi Totobi Quakye, Alfred Agbesi Woyome to loot the state to enriched themselves and their families thereby depriving the rest of us our fair share of the National cake.

President Mills unfortunately has just become a mere spectator and a President who only signs bills into law. He is a President who cannot take independent and bold decisions and stick to them. He is being controlled and manipulated left, right, front, back and center by these cabals. Even though President Mills knows too well that he is not an independent-minded and effective leader, yet he has refused to allow other capable, true and true NDC members to lead the party into the 2012 elections. What a disaster? What a tragedy? Our dear Ghana is indeed in a state of leadership crisis. NPP’s Akuffo Addo is no better an option, which has left our dear country in a dilemma.
President Mills must be sleeping in his bedroom but his legs are outside. Ato Ahwoi, Kwamena Ahwoi and Kofi Totobi Quakye, the Fante Mafia is having overbearing influence on the President of our dear Ghana to such an extent that every juicy contract is hijacked by them. These Fante Mafias should not deceive themselves that their evil deeds are not known. These Mafias have made Samuel Ablakwa Okudjeto to be their spy on other ministers. John Tia Akologo, the former Minister of Information, was removed from office because his own Deputy Samuel Ablakwa Okudjeto had gone to tell his Masters, the Fante Mafia, that there was a juicy contract at the Information Ministry and so long as John Tia was still at post, there was no way they (Fante Mafia) can get the contract without due process, hence they prevailed on President Mills who is a puppet in their hands to remove him (John Tia). John Tia’s removal from office by the President was therefore on the behest of the Fante Mafia.
“To be brutally honest” as Kwaku Baako (another sycophant anyway!) would say, if President Mills does not wake up from his slumber, he is likely going to be remembered as the worst and weakest President of the Republic of Ghana. Did President Mills really study at the feet of President Rawlings? Been the Vice President to President Rawlings for four (4) good years, it is surprising to most of us how President Mills has allowed himself to be controlled by Ato Ahwoi, Kwamena Ahwoi, Kwesi Ahwoi, Kofi Totobi Quakye et al.
President Mills has disintegrated the once very united NDC Party into fragments. President Mills will be remembered by all true NDC members, lovers and sympathizers as well as all Ghanaians as the one that disunited the Party due to his weak leadership style and petty vindictiveness. The people of the Volta Region will remember the President they totally helped and supported to come to power but turned against them and their own son, President Rawlings. The legacy of President Mills is DISUNITY, INCOMPETENCE, CORRUPTION, and MANIPULATION! He has damaged the NDC beyond redemption. The once united Party built on the back of the masses with Probity, Integrity, Accountability and Social Justice as the bedrock is now turned into a looting brigade, character assassins (by an incompetent mis – communication outfit ( “NDC rented press” as portrayed by Martin Amidu) that lacks the appreciation for the times, otherwise they would know the insults are not flying.
Ato Ahwoi, Samuel Ablakwa Okudjeto, Haruna Idrisu, Elvis Afrieye Ankra, Betty Mould Idrisu, Hannah Tetteh, Omane Boamah, James Agyenim-Boateng, E.T. Mensah, Ama Benyiwa Doe, Bernard Allotey Jacobs, Asiedu Nketia, Yao Boateng Gyan, Kobby Acheampong, Koku Anyidoho, Baba Jamal must know that the GARGANTUAN crimes they are committing against the State shall not go unpunished! If history should teach anything at all they must remember Victor Solormey and know that NPP does play with the jails at all, even unto death, no matter what deal one made with them!
How can we have a President who issues orders to his appointees and they disobey him all the time? Readers may remember in the early part of President Mills Administration, he issued orders to all his appointees to declare their Assets within six weeks. What happened? He re-issued the same directives, again and again and he was disobeyed. Now we are being told that President Mills ordered twice for the stoppage of the payment of the so-called Judgment Debt yet he was again ignored. These appointees’ wantondisregard of President Mills’ directives are precipitated by the fact that they know he cannot bite.
Fellow comrade NDC members and foot soldiers, with all the sacrifices that we made during the Election 2008, President Mills told some NDC Gurus who went to see him about the strain relationship between him and the founder of NDC Party, President Rawlings, and the effect it is bound to have on the Party’s chances of retaining Power in Election 2012. His answer to them was if Nana Akufo Addo wins the 2012 election, there is nothing wrong with that since Akufo Addo and the NPP are also Ghanaians. President Mills also told some friends of his that he can decide to cross carpet to CPP because there is nothing in the constitution that said a President cannot cross carpet. What is President Mills’ commitment to the NDC?
President Mills knows too well, deep down in his heart, body and soul; he has come to the end of the road. President Mills must do the most honorable thing to step aside in order to save the NDC and the country from going down a very dangerous path (opposition) and handing over to the morally bankrupt Akuffo Addo which Ghanaians do not want as a President.
Ghana cannot afford the Property Owning Kleptocrats (POK-NPP) coming to loot the country once again, this time round with oil flowing! What GARGANTUAN LOOT (GL) that will be?
Please Prof, resign as the leader of our great party while there is time, so we can reelect a more dynamic flagbearer for the benefit of our dear country! I am imagining how our country is going to be in the next 4 years, be it Mills or Akuffo Addo that is elected, as the situation stands now. But President Mills can change this by doing the honorable thing! Over to you the Professor!
