"Whenever wrinkles and dry bones are discussed in any discourse, the senescent feel uneasy and jittery", so says an ancient adage. No wonder why, whenever Dr JB Danquah is discussed on any public platform in Ghana, some elements of the CPP feel so jittery, and would want to make rebuttals.
I listened to one Kwabena Bomfeh, alias Kabila, on Okay FM radio yesterday, as he struggled with all his might, to reinvent his own story about Kwame Nkrumah, against Dr JB Danquah. In so doing, Kabila only succeeded in exhibiting his shallowness in knowledge and a mind plentiful in mediocrity.
Today, both "Prof Agyeman-Badu Akosah and Kwesi Pratt, a real pratt, could not hesitate in exposing their sycophantic insulse, clad in envy and hatred of the name, image, scholarship, ideas and achievements of Dr JB Danquah, whose songs of glory, were sung at the 50th anniversary commemoration of his death at Nsawam prison, and whose innocent blood has forever stained the cruel hands of Kwame Nkrumah.
Whiles Akosah, without any least provocation, is shamelessly decrying Dr JB Danquah as no angel, though yesterday's commemorative event had nothing to do with apotheosising his image to angelic status, as they have done to Kwame Nkrumah. 'Maza' Pratt, if indeed he is a real pratt, calls down that Ghanaians will forever never forgive Dr J B Danquah, for what he did to Kwame Nkrumah, irrespective of what the straight - setting records recounted on the iron - fist treatment JB suffered as a hapless and defenceless underdog, under the pravity of dictatorship rule of Nkrumah. After-all, 'Maza' Pratt, who had the upper hand over whom, a scotched and 'disabled' prisoner or a powerful President of the likes of Nkrumah?
This was purely a tale of truth telling, and corrections to a contorted political history of Ghana by some group of chorizonts.
Telling the truth of events, and listening to the truth, when the persons addressed find themselves foul of abetting to the crime committed by Nkrumah, uneasiness is certainly its accompaniment. Indeed, whenever Dr JB Danquah's ideas are mentioned in Ghana politics, Nkrumah becomes empty and vain, and this is an apodictic fact. JB Danquah shines and will continue to shine like the sun by virtue of his ideas, knowledge and patriotism against a multitude of watery comets of tenebrific propaganda by his enemies.
CPP elements will forever remain in tight clothing, until they adjust themselves and accommodate the truth of the history of Ghana's quest for self - government and independence.
