Where is greedy Yaw Ampofo Ankrah?

A long time ago (over 50 years), when I was in primary school, one of our teachers told us a story about how a greedy dog had to drown itself.

According to the story, the greedy dog tried to cross a bridge with a piece of meat in its mouth. While crossing the bridge, the dog saw its own reflection in the river and thought it was another dog with piece of meat; so out of greed, the dog jumped into the river to get the supposed piece of meat from the imaginary other dog.

To cut a long story short, the dog drowned because of its greed. Where is greedy Yaw Ampofo Ankrah now? Has he seen how he and his brother have drowned themselves in Brazil Debacle because of greed and avarice?

I recall Yaw Ampofo Ankrah, unwisely calling the Editor-In-Chief of The Informer to insult him because the Paper rightly asked questions about the World Cup Budget.

Today, has Yaw Ampofo Ankrah seen the mess he and his brother find themselves in? Will Yaw Ampofo Ankrah be able to look Andy Kankam in the eyes now?

Has Andy Kankam not been vindicated? Look at the rot and stench that is emanating from Brazil. If it is not greed that has drowned Elvis and his brother, then Okyeame does not know what has destroyed them.

Two brothers; so they wanted to make all the money in the world from the World Cup?

Honestly, how much food can one person eat in a day that people can be so greedy? So now that the two brothers have drowned themselves in the Brazil Debacle, who will they blame for their calamity?

Sometimes it becomes so sad when Okyeame sees budding young politicians destroy their career out of greed. We all have our faults but if people could just learn to stay away from greed and avarice; this world would be a much nicer place to live.

To be very honest; I hope that next time (if there ever should be any) Elvis gets to Head a Sector as a Minister, he will keep his brother and family far away. Just for the information of Elvis and Yaw; they should remember the Old Ghanaian adage “IF YOU CHOP ALONE, YOU FACE THE CONSEQUENCES ALONE”
