Martin Amidu must not join
Akufo Addo before Constitution is re-adopted
By: Prof Lungu

still say that when the record of history is written, it will
show that former Mr. John Dramani Mahama was more interested in
grand-opening half-completed edifices than building institutions
Ghanaians could count on to properly order their lives, the
Ghanaian economy, and their role in the world of the 21st
Today, we have learned that Mr. Mahama refuses
to vacate the VP residence.
That, in addition to the
official residence provided him while president, Mr. Mahama had
also been occupying the statutory home of Ghana's Vice
It is remarkable the bi-partisan Transition
Team did not address this problem, or alert Ghanaians, before
Akufo Addo and Bawumia were installed as president and
What did Akufo Addo, Bawumia, and the NPP
Transition Team know, and when did they know it?
Ghanaians trust these people?
This is disgraceful.
This is continuing elitism and continued rape and plunder by
high level officials.
Serious Akufo Addo must show Ghana
what he's got!
Newly-crowned President AkufoAddo Dankwa,
if he wants everyone to understand that he is serious, must aid
Ghanaians quickly revise that wart-infested Rawlingsian
Constitution that is causing all those losses and predation on
There is no duty or task more important
for Ghana today!
Martin Amidu should not get suckered
into that cesspit of depravity, arrogance and false sense of
entitlement to facilities they themselves did not build with
their own resources.
Strangely, or perhaps on purpose,
the NPP, AkufoAddo Dankwa, and his new Bawumia totally neglected
to include completion of the Constitutional review and its
re-adoption in their 2016 Manifesto.
perhaps on purpose, AkufoAddo Dankwa never talks about the
Constitution even if as he finds lots of time visiting with
former living presidents who, to a person, have skeletons
related to theft of public property and resources, promising his
"Nana-Self" that he will consult with them as he governs Ghana.
Why that guilty-ego-trip?
never too late!
The time is now!
parliament creates, another can render asunder without sweat
when they occupy those same official buildings.
Parliament to install a special prosecutor is not a sign of
institution building. It is a sign that you are not really,
really serious. It is a sign that you do not really care. It is
a sign that you are not really prepared to fight to the ordinary
man in the street who elected you to that august position.
Yes, it is a sign that President Akufo Addo and his Vice
President, notwithstanding all that talk, are not entirely
serious about effective- and outcome-based governance that leave
as little room as possible for the type of theatrics we are now
seeing. Like the one coming from former president Mahama, and
all that shame that never stopped while he was president.
It is a big problem and Julius Debrah ought to be ashamed
for carrying that putrid water for defeated Mahama.
Martin Amidu should not make any mistake here!
Amidu ought not accept any position in the Akufo Addo-Bawumia
government before the work on the Constitution is totally
completed and all those Rawligsian warts and defeatist theatrics
That includes making high-level officials
pay income taxes on their government incomes just like the
teachers and civil servants!
It includes abrogating
Mahama's Act 619 and declaration that the world standard
Production Sharing Agreement (PSA) is the only authorized Oil
and Gas regime for Ghana!
It includes bringing order to
all those absurd high-level allowances paid to ministers for
little work done without respect to Ghanaians!
includes stopping confiscations of government property and
vehicles by defeated former officials and all those receiving
political benefits for doing diddly-squat.
Mr. Martin A.
B. K. Amidu ought not accept any position, including
Attorney-General of Ghana, Special Prosecutor, and such, not
until Akufo Addo does what is right by Ghana and completes the
work on the Constitution.
Then, when that work is
completed, Mr. Martin Amidu could begin helping Akufo Addo
cement his legacy, again, even before Akufo Addo completes
estimating precisely what the election is worth to him and the
NPP in the form of capital and a mandate, post-2016 NPP
electoral victory, post-inaugural.
congratulations to Nana Akufo-Addo Dankwa!
Now, get to
the more serious work in resource-rich Ghana.
matter more than talk today!
Deal with it, sir!
So it goes, Ghana!
refuses to vacate official residence; Bawumia stranded,
