Journalism is a highly respectable profession, but you wouldn’t know
it if you read The Informer newspaper. As media houses all over the world and indeed in Ghana, aspiring to make their claim to fame through professionalism and accurate news reporting, some like The Informer seem to thrive on sheer stupidity and innuendos. It’s a shameful niche.
A pretentious mouthpiece of former President John Agyekum Kufuor. The
Informer has always shamefully claimed to have an informant at the former president’s office supposedly feeding it information. Well, finally the rag trash paper has been caught with its dirty pants down.
The Trashy Tabloid claimed on Wednesday that “Close associates to
former President John Kufuor are hinting The Informer that the former
President is so livid with the 2008/2012 running-mate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, for inviting unnecessary partisanship into the otherwise solemn first anniversary lecture” of the late Vice President Alhaji Aliu Mahama Foundation. Fortunately NPP-USA was present at the august function and can attest to the fact that President Kufuor heaped nothing but approving nods to Dr. Bawumia throughout his entire speech.
President Kufuor even went farther with his closing remarks as Chairman of the occasion. He posited that Dr. Bawumia can always be relied upon to back his statements with facts and figures, and he wished political discourse in Ghana followed that practice. How that vote of approval can somehow turn into a “livid” reaction from Ghana’s best president can only be the figment of the imagination of a bunch of losers with more apparent financial resources than cognitive abilities to manifest those resources into something positive for Ghana.
NPP-USA hereby advises the general public to dismiss any further claims by the trashy newspaper that someone at President Kufuor’s office has informed it on any subject. We further advise the owners of that paper to hire professionals to run its organization or risk becoming the laughing stock of the now discerning Ghanaian reading public.
