Tsatsu Tsikata as Minister of Justice and Fair Play

Posted by Business in Ghana on January 7, 2009

In the lead-up to the 2008 presidential run-off, when then-NDC flagbearer Prof. John Evans Atta-Mills promised to make a drastic reduction in fuel prices the topmost priority of his first 100 days in office, we promptly knew, intuitively, that such campaign promise, like coital sweet-nothings, had to be taken with the proverbial pinch of salt.  Now, true to our suspicions, Mr. Johnson Asiedu-Nketia – alias General Mosquito – the NDC general secretary, is telling the Ghanaian electorate that, in fact, the topmost priority of the Atta-Mills presidency, or administration, will be to speedily bump Mr. Tsatsu Tsikata out of the Nsawam Medium-Security Prison, where the former CEO of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) has been serving a 5-year prison term for unduly using his official and public position to benefit himself, his cronies and private business associates (See “NDC Dedicates Electoral Victory to Tsatsu” Ghanaweb.com 1/3/09).

  1. Kwame,

    Why do you take delight spewing garbage in cyberspace all the time? The various pieces of advice that many Ghanaians in the diaspora gave you feel on your deaf ears because you have hardened your heart. Ghanaians grant you your freedom of expression but in so doing stop exposing yourself to public ridicule. You writings don’t depict an academic worthy of his salt. However, since you choose to wallow in your pool of ignorance and delusion, who begrudges you. You are indeed a disgrace to us Akyemfuo in particular and academia in general.

  2. Though anticipated, the politics of “vengeance” will not serve anyone any good. The question is, did all those imprisoned under the NPP administration commit the offences levelled against them? If they did not, then their punishment should be condemned, but if they did then we should let sleeping dogs lie because nobody is above the law. We should accept that it is high time the so called untouchables were made to sit up and do the right thing. There is no point demonstrating around the court buildings and along the streets because someone being tried is an important figure in society. Let all understand that none should expect to gain any higher office in Ghana only to take advantage and do one’s own thing without accounting to the people of this country. May we all learn from America, Britain, Russia, and the developed countries that nobody meddles with their country’s coffers and go free. After all we all aspire that our country will one day be like theirs. My position is that, anyone who commits economic or any crime against our country should be dealt with by law so that we can progress as a nation.

    This is total shame and bulshit. The guy should not have been in this situation in the first place. The President an his team should also be jailed for intentionally disappearing tones of Cocaine tarnishing the image of our dear country abroad.

  5. I am disappointed that the honourable professor of English is talking about buying bazookas and shot guns. I wondre what we are supposed to learn form that kind of rhetoric.
