Certainly the “Ghana Beyond Aid” project being executed by His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo did not resonate any form of symphony in the ears of the Americans who seem to be fighting a proxy economic war with Russia and China on so-called third world countries, ours including.
We could have crossed the bridges and broken the constraints that have shackled our minds were we not so consumed in the ferocious battle to uphold our basic rights to survival as human beings, due to a most destructive two term reign of the NDC between 2009 and 2017.
The Americans found in the NDC conducive conditions and “kwasea bi nti” minds that ejaculated filth, the kind that greased the financial “arms and ammunition” of slavers and neo-colonialists with which they hoped to subjugate the people of Ghana, specifically, and Africa, generally. They know that Ghana would be another Malaysia under President Akufo-Addo, so the Americans are using “Millennium Challenge Corporation Compact”, MCCC,as the trump card to threaten the sovereignty of our country.
President Akufo-Addo has sacked PDS! I have never once lost faith in him because he is ordained with a sense of nationalism, loyalty, patriotism, and unrelenting love for Ghanaians. He will never betray this great nation! He heard our cries, and did the needful.
The Americans thought they could twist our arm where it hurts most by threatening to cancel the 190million US Dollar tranche that was due Ghana under the “MCCC” account. Now they are fighting the government to have PDS reinstated.
But what is the motive of the Americans? Well, we do know that under the NDC, ECG was so mismanaged that it became the most incompetent institution after the John Dramani Mahama presidency.
In this regard, the sacked and disgraced NDC government sought a bailout to help stabilise the erratic power supply that beleaguered Ghana in all their years in Power, debuting the Akan term, “Dumsor”, in the English Dictionary and, of course, google search engine.
It was thought that each time they received support, it went sliding into the thieving pockets of a few. Based on this precedent and other debilitating consequences of putting the fox in charge of the chicken, the Americans brought Ghana on board the MCCC initiative begun by President Barack Obama in the Powering Africa project.
However, what did the Americans seek to gain from the MCC in the first place? It would not be too far from the truth to say that they sought to consolidate their grip on Africa, and Ghana, in light of the massive Chinese presence on the continent.
The astuteness and extreme competence of President Akufo-Addo, though, took them by storm. They thought that he would be yet another John Mahama, who would allow them unfettered control of the country to stage their immorality and LGBT farce.
They did not hit the jackpot on this one! President Nana Akufo-Addo came to say, “enough is enough”! He came to say that it is the era of “Ghana Beyond Aid”! He came to show the whole world that Africa can survive on her own by creating a rife example of same in Ghana, hence the massive infrastructure works; the massive agricultural revolution; the massive industrialisation drive; the massive exodus of investors to Ghana seeking to put shoulder to bumper to help push the band wagon, knowing very well that the President has instituted the appropriate mechanisms to make Ghana investor friendly.
Sa p3 p333 p3!
The Americans are pushing for the reinstatement of PDS at all cost, and if not possible, calling for the award of same contract to another third party company in order that Ghana gets the outstanding 190 million US Dollars owed Ghana under the MCC arrangement.
Well, guess what, as they say in American slangs, “they can shove that 190 million USD up where the moon don’t shiiiiiine”!!!
Let the Electricity Company of Ghana continue to run without interference from any third party leech. After all, the current management under the chairmanship of, Keli Gadzekpo, and the Managing Director, Ing Boakye-Appiah, were, and still are, doing a magnificent job, keeping Dumsor at bay.
Let us not be puppets in the hands of Americans and the neo-colonialists who have Africa in their grip, tearing at us with their cannibalism and immorality.
