GHANA: Shouldn’t there be a limit to dishonesty? by Franklin Cudjoe
Shouldn’t there be a limit to dishonesty?
You’ve already earned, through Vice President Dr. Bawumia, the dubious crown as being the only party in the world to sneakily insert a new unintended Cape Coast Airport promise in a soft copy of a manifesto AFTER the manifesto is already launched. Shamefully, today, you have a hardcopy manifesto that is different from the soft copy version.
We no bore …
Then you (President Akufo-Addo and Dr. Bawumia) announce to the world that the NDC’s promise to regulate Okada to ensure safety and provide jobs to the youth many of whom are already in the busness, is a reckless one and that you’ll resist it and provide better opportunities for the youth, only to turn round today, after popular support for the NDCs plan, and say you’re suddenly considering the NDCs manifesto proposal.
You take a “principled” position that only corrupt Presidents become ECOWAS Chair because JM had earned the title at the time. You insult all ECOWAS chair from other countries simply because of your sworn mission to denigrate JM. But today, you sneakily delete that 5-year tweet a day afteryour uncle is made ECOWAS Chair
Do you know, sir, that deleting that message after your dishonesty has been shoved in your face, says a lot about the kind of person you are? Do you know, that by you a towering public figure simply deleting that tweet without any statement or explanation, it means you have little regard for the intelligence and dignity of Ghanaians.
Or should we begin to drop our respect for you and consider you as someone with no responsibility to the public, an insignificant person whose views should no longer matter from today?
When your dishonesty is exposed, you admit your mistake and apologise. You don’t insult Ghanaians on top by acting as if it was all in our heads.
