a companion of the black star!
I write to hereby inform you the following:
The Elephant Is Still On The Beat!
I keep saying that the elephant was not simply chased into the bush. Once inside the bush, it took the "strategic" decision to beat about the bush! It does not surprise me in the least, that somehow in your thinking, the NDC are pigs, Ghanaians are animals, and NPP is the only human being in town, Mr. Jones! Can you hear yourself? You want the animals to throw away the pigs and bring you the human beings to come and rule over them, is that your point in general?
Well I can assure you that the pigs are also part of the animal kingdom, and why should their overthrow necessitate the invasion of humans? I think considering the level of the elitism and arrogance within the NPP it came to you so naturally to see yourselves as humans and Ghanaians as animals without losing a sleep on that!
Since you are familiar with the Animal Farm, you might also know the fable of the "The Shepherd's Dog and The Wolf"? Men eat more sheep than wolves, yet we claim wolves are more dangerous to sheep!
"A wolf eats a sheep, but now and then
Ten thousand are devour'd by men.
An open foe may prove a curse;
But a pretended friend is worse"!
Forward Ever! Backwards Never! Long live Ghana!
