1. TO SERVE OR TO BE SERVED?
(Right) Policeman carrying umbrella for Mayor of Accra (Alfred Oko Vanderpuje). [Left] Someone carrying umbrella for Greater Accra Regional Minister (Joseph Nii Laryea Afotey Agbo). The two officials were visiting Kwame Nkrumah Circle after a flood disaster in June 2015 had killed nearly 200 people. This is absolutely ridiculous because our leaders are supposed to serve us and not the other way round.
2. ASIEDU NKETIAH IN THE ‘MAATA’ LAND
Asiedu Nketiah was part of Government of Ghana’s official delegation to Germany. He wore a coat which belonged to his wife. His reason for using the female coat was to save money since he did not see the need to buy a new coat when that of his wife was available. Mr Asiedu Nketia embarrassed Ghana because of what did. I don’t expect any other politician (including himself) to repeat that ‘ridiculous adventure’.
3. I HAVE ALSO BEEN THERE
Below is the Minister for Gender, Children and Social protection (Nana Oye Lithur). She went for a UN conference in 2015. Unfortunately she was not one of people who had the opportunity to address the assembly. She therefore decided to address tables and chairs. Ridiculous?? I think so.
4. HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSE?
AGAIN!! Below is the Minister for Gender, Children and Social protection (Nana Oye Lithur). This time around, it is a policeman carrying her shoes. What? That’s ridiculous. My tax is paying for a policeman to carry footwear of a minister?
5. HURRAY I HAVE BEEN TO CNN!!!
The man in the picture is the President of (Kwame Nkrumah’s) Ghana. He went to CNN for an interview and he used the opportunity to a picture in front of the CNN building. He then shared with all Ghanaians and the world via facebook. For what purpose? May be to tell us that “I John Dramani Mahama, President of the Republic of Ghana, have been to CNN”. That is ridiculous!!
6. ANYTHING TO GET YOU ELECTED
Below is the picture of Samuel Okudjeto Ablakwa (Deputy Minister) openly distributing money to potential voters. May be we pay them too much? That’s why he has so much??
