Comment to: Ghanaians’ unhealthy obsession with Mr Rawlings
OFFICE OF THE ODIKRO.
a companion of the black star,
Don't you have elders in your house? How dare you talk to all Ghanaians in such a disrespectful manner? Do you understand what you write? What is going on here? The struggle for democracy in Ghana is a process that started a long time ago. Once upon a time, Rawlings became the main obstacle when he said the return of the ballot box "would be the return of the devil himself!" Those of us who have been on his back since then have been on his back to keep him in his place and to remove him as the imposter that he is. This is not an obsession. Those hundreds of Ghanaians whose fathers, mothers, children, brothers and sisters were brutally tortured and killed are not obsessed with Rawlings, they simply want justice!
This article is a silly apology for a mass murderer who recently called for investigations into a murder case in Tamale because, according to him, the police used the victim as a human shield. It is not for someone guilty of the deaths of hundreds of Ghanaians to be the first to complain about the murder of a single Ghanaian. This is hypocrisy.
The quarrel between Rawlings and the President is basically because he wanted to personally screen all ministerial and political appointments, just as it was in "the good old days" of the [P]NDC.
Rawlings is obsessed with annoying Ghanaians and making a lot of noise rather than sense. Ghanaians who feel the need to defend our democracy, often talk about Rawlings, not because they are obsessed by Rawlings, but because of stupid articles such as this one, aiming clearly to spin this man with the blood of many innocent Ghanaians on his hands back into respectability and acceptance. This requires fooling a lot of Ghanaians, the majority of whom a just too clever for such simple and dim wits!
Rawlings must get ready to answer for his murderous past, first and foremost, the level of corruption he and his wife supervised in the sale and purchase of Ghanaian properties such as the Star Hotel and the others which now form part of their "survival kit".
Such a person can spend his time helping to improve our prison conditions because our history is bound to teach the appropriate lessons. And Rawlings is destined to go to jail for his crimes!
He committed such heinous crimes that some of us may probably be obsessed with JUSTICE but not the person Rawlings, even though he is talking a lot of nonsense of late!
I avail myself of this opportunity, to extend to you, on behalf of the Odikro, Nana Akyea Mensah II, the assurances of our highest consideration.
Forward Ever! Backwards Never!!!
Secretary to the Odikro, Nana Akyea Mensah II,
