A member of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has posited that it is totally wrong for anybody to assert that President Mills has surrounded himself with apparatchiks of questionable character.
Kwabena Sarpong avers it is rather the president who is a hypocrite and has a questionable personality which mirrors those of the people around him.
“It is the man who is bad and not the people surrounding him…because if the man is bad the people surrounding him would be bad and if the man is good, the people surrounding him would be good...If he was a good man, he would have stopped his appointees from using billions to buy gifts when he himself has told Ghanaians he doesn’t take hampers. The blame should squarely be laid at President Mills’ doorsteps and not his appointees...Jesus Christ! Mills is a bad man, so don’t blame Aseidu Nketia, Koku (Anyidoho) or Betty (Mould-Iddrisu),” he stated.
He was commenting on media reports that a delegation of chiefs and traditional rulers from the Volta Region, under the umbrella of Royals for Peace, have conferred with the Rawlingses ostensibly to find a solution to the strained relations between the former First Family and President Mills.
Wondering where the group has been all this while since the petty squabbles and internal wranglings within the NDC began, Kwabena Sarpong, who is also a member of the NPPs Communication Team sarcastically asked; “when Nana Konadu was humiliated at Cape Coast, where were the Royals for Peace? When J.J Rawlings was being verbally abused and described as the chained barking dog, did they not hear about it or know the identities of the people involved?...What the hell! An election is now imminent so Mills is talking about peace and extending an olive branch…well if Rawlings doesn’t know how death is like, he should take a closer look at a person who is deep in slumber,” he said.
The outspoken NPP activist, who was speaking on Oman FM, warned Mr. Rawlings to stay clear off President Mills since his former protégé only needed his services to win the December polls.
“Should he (Mills) win the 2012 elections, he would show him (Rawlings) where true power lies…Before the NDC came to power, a journalist once told me that if there was anybody to try Rawlings in court, it would be President Mills,” he said.
