Wetin concern vulture and barber in your fight against corruption, Mr. President? – Owula Mangortey wonders
I am a Citizen.
I rise to ask my respected Retired and Tired President Billy Akufo-Addo wetin concern vulture and barber in your fight against corruption.
Since January 2017, a vulture has been saying it is building its nest to withstand corruption. The 2020 clouds are looming largely on the horizon and the vulture says what?
In your recent address at the Takoradi Ghana Bar Association Conference, you blamed your opponents for tagging you with corruption.
You said, inter alia, “the orchestrated attempts by my opponents to hang the tag of corruption on the necks of my government and myself…will not work.”
Hey! I went to school. I passed my exams. I did not get a 3rd Class at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology. So, don’t spew English at me in the name of fighting corruption.
And please, stop addressing your Citizens in that voice that sounds like a tractor parked on your testicles (taflatse)!!
My Tired President, I am not mad at you. I am sad for you. Listening to you, my reaction was to laugh out loud at your effort to wrestle free from the corruption albatross around your neck.
But my carefully considered response is sadness and compassion for you.
In Takoradi, your words were overflow from your heart and quickly evidenced the health or sickness of your soul.
My Tired President, your heart must be in a dangerous place to have such consistent overflow of lies to tell the Citizens that, “I did not come into public life to enrich myself.”
Since you are an acclaimed learned man, quasi- Christian calligraphy on vehicles should pose no problem or terror to you. Right?
You are familiar with this writing on a Lagos-bound bus; “ife onye metalu” which means “what a man commits follows him.”
The real burden of the theology in this writing on a bus applies to you my respected Retired and Tired President Billy Akufo-Addo.
Whatever corruption scandal we see following you, whatever fate comes to take revenge on you can only be what you, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, in some way or another, in your previous life in Opposition if not in your present presidential life, have committed.
You threw corruption balls at the Bole wall and they have bounced back to you.
Ife onye metalu!
You, your government and your elite Kyebi Bourgeoisie are neck deep in corruption because you believe and practise the Bemba proverb which states, “a person who works in a garden eats from the garden.”
If you want to know who says, thinks and admits Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is corrupt, then please join a trotro or a Kufuor bus, or visit the markets, or sit at a watering hole (especially an akpeteshie joint) and listen to the powerful VOR media.
When you, Mr President, fyour appointees, family and friends have your noses in the corruption soup bowl and are daily prone to vulgar displays of wanton debauchery, licentiousness and impurity, you cannot blame your opponents for hanging corruption tags around your neck. Can you?
How can a corrupt pig ask to be bathed free of its corrupt mud, Mr. Corrupt President Billy Akufo-Addo?
As your Garu Citizens say, “don’t bath the pig because it is simply called DON’T BATH.”
Hey Akufo-Addo!! You can not bath your corruption because it is simply called DONT BATH!
