H.E. John Mahama Dramani, a former President of Ghana who has passed through every stage of our political terrain and woefully attached to Oliver Twist’s slogan of demanding for the immeasurable, is one of the most fortunate persons ever to have lived in Ghana.
He was shamefully voted against to suffer one of the worst defeats in our political discourse in our country, and he was tagged incompetent and was allegedly branded corrupt of which the NDC defended as lies with all sincerity. Most of the deals and contracts he signed or were signed on his behalf were alleged to be over-prized with impunity.
There has been a bribery allegation making rounds recently in the print news tabloids and social media about an alleged scandal involving Airbus and Go1. Certain unscrupulous anonymous individuals in the NDC era in which Mr Mahama happened to be the leader have all been allegedly fingered as being the culprits.
It was not long ago that the president initiated a laudable program dubbed, the year of return. This brought people from different walks of life with African descent in the diaspora into the country. Lots of people hailed, acclaimed and eulogized Ghana for this initiative thereby marketing internationally and skyrocketing its name in the good books of one of the most sought after country. Whist Nana Addo is constructing, Go1 is putting assunder.
What amazes me or breaks the camel’s back beyond repair is his deafening loud silence on this matter knowing who he is and the entire iniquitous fraternity called the NDC. These are the people when even a pin falls on the ground, they quickly gather the press and have their say. These are the people who have organized too many superfluous and in fact, gratuitous pressers spewing ill content information to the public all in the name of sabotaging the NPP government in an unpopular way of canvassing for votes come 2020.
The million dollar question is, why the silence?
His silence is continuously bringing shame, humiliation, and embarrassment to our dear country Ghana, a statement I find so incontrovertible. Our nation is being ridiculed on the international stage by his silence and posture.
I am by this article calling on him to come and clear the air and dissolve every shred of doubt amongst the people of Ghana and the international community about the identity of Go1.
I am also by this, commending the Government of Ghana for its maturity in referring the issue to the special prosecutor’s outfit to investigate and bring the issue to finality.
Long live Ghana.
