Who are They?? From the bottom of my heart, I seek permission from God to praise the two living heroes in Ghana. May the showers of God’s blessings be upon them now and forever more. Amen. ? ? Who are these two heroes in the estimation of Rockson Adofo, one of the wisest sons of Kumawu/Asiampa who exudes wisdom and intelligence in ever flowing fountain able to quench the thirst of all those seeking wisdom. ? ? Who is a Hero by definition. A Hero is "a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities". ? ? When I put on my goggles of patriotism, intelligence, wisdom, truthfulness, discernment and intellectualism, I can as we speak, see Honourable Kennedy Agyapong, a Member of Parliament for Assin Fosu North, and Former Attorney General, Brother Martin Amidu (he does not want to be addressed as Honourable as most of those currently addressed as Honourable are rather more dishonourable than anything else), as the two living heroes. ? ? An unbelieving soul may wish to question how I arrived at that conclusion. The answers are not far fetched. They are as simple as ABCD. Honourable Kennedy Agyapong has unilaterally been exposing the fraudulent engagements by the Mills/Mahama and Mahama/Arthur-Amissah-led NDC governments. Both governments ganged up with individuals and companies to dupe Ghana out of millions if not billions of Ghana New Cedis. Was it not Kennedy, the lone voice in Parliament, audacious as he is, that exposed the "Woyomegate Scandal" at the expense of his life? While all the other Members of Parliament had been cowed by the fear of reprisal at the hands of the NDC if they exposed the indulgences of the government in such disgusting acts of daylight robberies on Ghanaians and Mother Ghana. ? ? Kennedy has saved Ghana a lot even though we are yet to retrieve the monies from all the dubious judgment debt payments recipients. He has also helped expose the double-standards and weaknesses of the supposedly "Asomdwehene" President Mills and the real corrupt nature of President John Dramani Mahama, alias "Ede bii keke". Without Kennedy exposing all the evil machinations of the mentioned Presidents and the NDC, it would not have been long before they sold Ghana and all those inside to abscond with the proceeds abroad. ? ? Brother Martin Amidu, a born and bred patriot decided not to partake the food of evilness as cooked by President Mills and then Vice President Mahama and the NDC but warned Ghanaians against how poisonously contaminated the food was. He was sarcastically kicked in the groin where it hurt most and ordered out of the government for daring to inform the public of how corrupt the government was. The government was preventing him from pursuing Alfred Agbesi Woyome for fraudulently and collusively milking Ghana out of GHC51.2 million. The reason being, Woyome was only used as a front, as stupid as he is, thinking Ghanaians would just let him get away with stealing that lot of money for NDC even when caught because the government was the architect behind the theft. Martin would have none of that but to prove to Ghanaians that in the midst of the abundance of officially instigated corruption, human saints of his calibre still thrive innocently unblemished. ? ? He was neither daunted nor dented by the falsehoods peddled about his sacking from the notoriously corrupt NDC government. He unilaterally took Alfred Agbesi Woyome, a self-styled NDC financier and his employer Waterville and Spanish Firm Isofoton represented by a personally known Kumawu compatriot, Mr Anane-Agyei Forson, to Court. He has won the case for Ghana and very soon the Accra High Court will find Woyome guilty and force him to cough up the money he connived with the NDC government to steal from the government coffers. ? ? If all Ghanaians were like Kennedy Agyapong and Brother Martin Amidu, Ghana would be the best place to live on this earth. Nana Akufo Addo will soon join the living heroes. I am also aspiring to be a hero by squeezing the balls of the fraudsters like Alfred Agbesi Woyome, Alex Segbefia, Carl Wilson, Koku Anyidohu, Ebo Barton-Odro, Kwesi Pratt, Yaw Boateng Gyan, Felix Ofosu-Kwakye etc. hard until they cry "A-Ouch!" and begin to tell Ghanaians the scale of their evilness committed against Mother Ghana. ? ? ? ? May all ye discerning Ghanaians join me to say to our two living heroes, "AYIKOO!" Who else wants to be, or join, the LIVING HEROES? Do you not want to be recognised as an adorable hero or heroine, my dear reader? ? I dedicate this publication to all those Ghanaians aspiring to become living heroes. Be a hero while you live rather than being posthumously recognised as such. ? Rockson Adofo ? ? ?
