They have said nothing positive before! And, from their records, I wonder if they will ever do so. These are not the normal everyday fools we meet in the street! They are professional stooges whose opinions are adjusted constantly by their international financiers and imperialist owners! The other day, they were arguing passionately for our collective enslavement under the military might of the US by ceding our sovereignty for US military bases on our soil. They also claim to "love" Ghanaians so much that they applaud Okoampa for supporting the Ivorians against Ghanaians in the former’s purported claim to our Jubilee Oil fields! Yes, even when La Côte d'Ivoire decided to claim the Jubilee Oil from Ghana, the first and only Ghanaian to have publicly sided with the Ivorians for ideological reasons was Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr., an insider of the Akyem Mafia and a member ogf the Governing Body of the Danquah Institute. Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr, who described himself a member of the governing body of the Danquah Institute, an Akufo Addo propaganda outfit, wrote: "I am glad that, finally, the Ivorians are beginning to assert their right of access and enjoyment of Ghana’s purportedly new-found oil wealth... It also didn’t quite make a lot of sense to me that an oil find that lay so dangerously close to Ghana’s border with Côte d’Ivoire would also have been so [godlessly] uncharitable as to neatly parcel itself out for the exclusive benefit and enjoyment of Ghanaians while the war-seasoned Ivorians continued to languish in penury." - "Who Are These “Parliamentarian Drivers”? By Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr., Ph.D., Feature Article of Tuesday, 16 March 2010.

What I find even more alarming is this attempt by the Akufo Addo chief propagandist to sell the idea of Africom to Ghanaians:

"Ghana is now the subject of strategic U.S. energy and military interests which, as far as the Obama administration is concerned, has raised the stakes considerably in Ghana–United States relations. As the potential gem in the crown of what Washington terms Africa's ‘New Gulf’, the article highlights how Ghana’s pending oil-rich status will shift the terms of negotiation during the trip. Furthermore, America’s preference for Ghana as the physical location for the U.S. African Command (AFRICOM) headquarters, and its concern not to cede strategic ground to China in this region, mean that in 2009 Ghana has an unprecedented hand of cards to play in this game of international diplomacy. Our task as a nation – and the Government’s task as our representatives - is to make the strategic decisions to ensure that we aren’t simply the honoured recipients of President Obama’s first visit to Africa, but that we come away with more concrete deliverables to help us meet our own strategic goals."

Ochere Darko, the Executive Director of the Akyem Mafia neocolonialist think-tank known as the Danquah Institute now shows us how they hope to move Ghana forward:

"The way forward is a pro-active policy to build a new Gulf of energy security and prosperity in a part of the world that is relatively receptive to American presence. With significant discoveries being made in the Gulf of Guinea oil basin, off the coast of Ghana, Equatorial Guinea, Congo and Cote d’Ivoire, according to the Energy Information Administration of the U.S. Department of Energy, the United States will be importing in the year 2020 over 770 million barrels of African oil a year. And Ghana with its stability, notable responsiveness to America, deepening multiparty democracy and promising investment climate is seen as the perfect epicentre for the growth and fulfilment of this interest. In the eyes of America, geography, geology and ideology all favour Ghana as the gem in the crown of this new policy."

I am sure it shall not harm our democratic process if Nana Akufo Addo would come out clearly to distance himself from the position of his right hand man or be honest enough to tell us BEFORE he is elected, whether or not he endorses the "brilliant ideas" of the Danquah Institute neocolonialist think-tank.

Forward Ever! Backwards Never!!!
