Chopping Without The Small Boys

Hah! These are interesting times, as I keep on saying. Some days ago, a group of people, all members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), took it into their heads to storm the toll booth on the Adomi Bridge to take it over, because in their opinion, it was not being properly managed. For me, once again, this act is a direct attack on the state of Ghana by people who ought to have known better, and it is all too good that the police went in there to arrest them.

Ideally, they should be prosecuted to serve as an example to others who would behave in such reprehensible manner in future.
In defending this matter, Ahmed Baba Jamal popularly known as Baba Bin Jahadist Jamal who is the Deputy Eastern Region Minister, said that most of the activists of his party were feeling left out in the scheme of things, hence the agitations across the country by activists of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

I can understand their woes; they see the people they were in the trenches with bettering their lot as if there is no tomorrow. They can see the new cars, new mansions, and luxuriant new women being enjoyed by some of their leaders, and they wonder why they are not getting their share. They feel denied, and they think that they must go out to grab their own.

One such party official who feels bitterly betrayed in the NDC is Mordecai Ofosu Mensah, popularly known as Mordecai, a serial caller of the NDC.
Mordecai feels betrayed. A couple of days ago he walked into our offices with his woes and I personally spoke with him, among them the fact that even though he is very sick, he does not even have money to go to hospital.

This is a man who sacrificed his all to bring the NDC to power. Today, he has been declared as a persona non-grata within the NDC.

The leaders of the NDC are chopping as if there is no tomorrow and greedy bastards as they are, they do not realize that they are sowing the seeds of their own political undoing.

I rest my case.
