It has been a very interesting week and Fiifi Kwetey, (I am not sure I understand his job yet) is flitting between media blitz’s and chameleon “ntoma” recycling the blame for the 2012 excesses back to 2009.  Now he points to the petition hearing for the economic downturn, which he admits.  Well, look back Mr. Kwetey, because we consistently heard that the economy was fixed, confidence restored and we were looking at the best financial turnaround in the history of this country.  And that was long before the NDC Government went gaga with election profligacy and tossed financial prudence out the window to perpetuate kleptocracy.  We have seen what GYEEDA was capable of, with just two companies, Jospon Group and the Agams Group.  There is a sanitized cyberspace version of the Youth and Sports ministry report, where most of the deals were signed, doing the rounds.  It is damning of the Government and points to the sheer conceit of the Youth and Sports ministers involved.  Rashid Pelpuo, Kofi Humado and Akua Sena Dansua.

But Mr. Kwetey says Investors are pleased with Ghana’s financial indicators and management.  Actually, if they looked at financial management they would brave Boko Haram in Nigeria.  Fortunately some other stuff makes them keep an open door to us.  They can see good democratic evolution and a far better return on their money than elsewhere in the world.  This country runs not on the fuel of cash and prudent borrowing, but on the peace of the Ghanaian, the very symbol in the Supreme Court which Mr. Kwetey condemns as a waste of time.  And if he is to be used as an example, he is not of that Ghanaian ilk, sporting one of the foremost fetid mouths in politics.  Outsiders see what we are doing, but savvy Ghanaians are fully on top of what is going down here.  We just can’t find redress to coral Government appointees.
