Happy New Year, Meanspirited Politicians! – By Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jnr., Ph.D.

Ultimately, though, absolutely nothing prevents those who lost out on hustling the President for a few crumbs from the master’s table, during the yuletide, from accosting him in the post-X-mas season and belatedly demanding their crumbs. After all, he can’t stay in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, or wherever he is presently vacationing forever. Or, could he?

At any rate, what makes Mr. Asiedu-Nketia’s clearly unsolicited “subterfuge” for Mr. Mahama rather lame and, in fact, patently asinine, is for GeneralMosquito to feign as if the latter decided to spend his Christmas holidays on state side, only because he has absolutely nowhere else to go. Well, our terse contention here is that the man would have somewhere to spend his Christmas vacation if he really wanted to. For the last time that I checked, General Mosquito’s wife was widely reported to be domiciled in Canada.

Merry Christmas, My Dear Reader! Happy New Year also to the Mosquito and all the other Ghanaian leaders, on both sides of the ideological divide, who have made lying through their teeth, straight in the eye, a shameless behavioral art of choice. Let us all hope that the year 2014 will imbue the moldy gray-matter under the skulls of our leadership pretenders with an ample dosage of conscience.

May Divine Providence also bless our homeland, Ghana!
