There is a saying that “he who wishes the downfall of another will have destruction waiting for him at the doorsteps of his success”. How true is this statement with regards to the Nefarious Destructive Cancer! Christ also admonished the Pharisees when he said, “he who has no sin, let him cast the first stone”.
Over the years, the NDC has had a field day denigrating the NPP by calling it all sorts of names. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Flag-bearer of the party has borne the brunt of attacks from the caustic and icy tongues of those saucy, uncouth, ill-trained members of the NDC who see in him the very sterling qualities they expect to find in their Flag-bearer and President of this country, but which are virtually absent. Thus, they must go all out to unleash their attack dogs on Nana Akufo-Addo. But history has a way of vindicating the just.
I will be brief and go straight to the point. Readers, please, I entreat you to get copies of “The Ghanaian Lens” of Tuesday, 5th June, 2007, Page 7 and you will be shocked at the contents of “Thoughts of Uncle JB”. This notorious paper, I am reliably informed, has some on the contents being authored by a certain power broker at the Castle. The bully and “all powerful” Koku Anyidoho was Sports Editor of the paper, before his elevation. I don’t know if he still is.
Sorry for digressing a bit, but in the: “Thoughts of Uncle JB” had this screaming headline: “Nebuchadnezzar Ataa Ayi K4 killed Fathia”.
“The devil, re-incarnate has killed the first First Lady of our country. Of course, I know that the woman was suffering from a debilitating health problem, but that does not take away the fact that it was the visit of Nebuchadnezzar Ataa Ayi K4 to her bedside that sent the woman packing to the world beyond.
“The man is such an evil character that even when he has good intentions, the devil quickly steps in and hijacks the good intentions and uses it to his devilish advantage. After ignoring and virtually disgracing the Great Osagyefuo Dr Kwame Nkrumah during the 50th Anniversary Celebrations, what did he go to do by the bedside of Nkrumah’s wife?
“Then just for public relations gimmick purposes, Nebuchadnezzar Ataa Ayi K4 goes to visit the sick woman. I am sure the ugly and monstrous look of Nebuchadnezzar Ataa Ayi K4 sent the woman’s blood rushing in different directions leading to her death. The autopsy report will never have it that Fathia died as a result of the visit of the evil and satanic Nebuchadnezzar Ataa Ayi K4 but as for me, Uncle J.B, my independent autopsy report will have it that Madam Fathia Nkrumah died as a result of the visit of the devil re-incarnate.
The man is evil and I can’t help telling the world that the man is evil”.
Yes, that was the myopic and mischievous verdict passed on Ex-President Kufuor by the cabal of power brokers who hold sway at the seat of power at the Castle.
These people alluded to the fact that it was the visit of Kufuor to Fathia Nkrumah that resulted in her death. Simple! And if we are to go by that criteria, what would you make of the death of the Ghana High Commissioner in Canada, three of four days after meeting with our Fumbling and Wobbling President? This happened a few weeks ago, when the President went to “chill off” in the white man’s world, in complete contravention of his “dzi wo fie asem mantra”. The President who chose to sleep in the same room with his male subordinate for some unexplained reasons decided not to go with his wife. He went to Canada, met the High Commissioner and shook hands with him. Then three or four days after the encounter, the poor innocent Ambassador is pronounced dead. Does this not tingle a nerve in your brain? Don’t you smell something unusual? Did the “slain” High Commissioner have a dossier on our fumbling and wobbling President which he had wanted to make public. And for fear of being “humiliated” by such public disclosure, they decided to give him the “Dele Giwa treatment”? I am not saying that was what exactly happened, but that could be a possibility.
Could it be that the juju ring on our President’s finger was at work? Readers would recall that it was Nii Lante Vanderpuye who was alleged to have said that in clear unmistakable language that the ring the President wore for a particular period was a juju one. Do not crucify me, for I am not the originator of this story. It came from the direct okro mouth of Nii Lante Vanderpuye, a Presidential Aide at the Castle.
According to Nii, after the President had shaken the hands of a certain Chief from the Western Region, he got some blisters and cuts on his palm. To counteract the effect of the poison, the President invited some powerful fetish priests to make the juju ring for him. But the funniest aspect of the whole show was that he wore it on his left finger. That means the President shook the hands of the supposed powerful Chief from the Western Region with his left hand. And what better way to show disdain and disrespect to traditional rulers in the country than to greet them your left hand. And that was exactly what the fumbling and wobbling President did!!
From the analysis Uncle JB gave us, can we also deduce that it was the murderous look of our President that sent the innocent-looking Ambassador to Canada to his untimely grave? But even here, the difference is clear. Madam Fathia Nkrumah had been sick for a very long time, whereas our Ambassador to Canada had not complained of ill-health, not even headache before his untimely demise. So you see the efficacy of the juju ring worn by the President was at work.
We can also conclude that it was the interaction of the Fumbling and wobbling President had with his victim coupled with the shaking of his hands that killed the man.
This brings me to point number two which has to deal with the labeling of the NPP as the Narcotics Peddlers Party on account of the arrest and conviction of one MP for cocaine trafficking and the disappearance of some 77 Parcells of Cocaine from Police Exhibit Room. The parcels later turned into “konkonte”.
Now the wheel has gone full circle and a certified quantity of cocaine tendered in court as evidence and handed over to the courts for safe-keeping has turned into sodium bi-carbonate. What has the NDC got to say about this? Since the party’s name also begins with the letter, I think the NDC should be now be christened Narcotics Death Centre/Clinic. It is a nice name and aptly describes what the party is to a number of people.
But for the time being, have it at the back of your mind that the Narcotics Death Clinic is not what it portrays itself to be. It is an organization whose members most of whom are notorious criminals meet to perfect the act of criminality. The few decent ones amongst them are being hounded almost on daily basis, by disclosures of one untoward act or the other. They thus find the contraption no longer at ease. A switch would be good for them, but can they? Absolutely not, for they would be hunted down and “destroyed” by the rabid dogs which the party has helped to create. A communist party in the making.
Our Fumbling and Wobbling President, Baba Go Slow aka Professor Do Little promised to give Ghanaians the “Brave New World” but has ended up giving us the State of Nature. Go for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. He, unlike the President would look at you, eyeball to eyeball and tell you what he feels about an issue. He is not a hypocrite. The President on the other hand, cannot look you straight in the eye and tell you what and how he feels on an issue. He comes out to condemn use of offensive language, but behind the scene, he will order his appointees to disregard his public utterance and keep on doing what they know better at doing.
Which of the two do you trust – Nana or Mills? For me, I will go for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo. His concern for the masses is in sharp contrast with President Mills, who has increase taxes on geographical progression and also levied taxes on everything that has a name in the country, contrary to his promise to reduce taxes drastically within the first One Hundred Days of his assumption of power.
