ONLY 500m DOLLARS FOR 25 YEARS?

Once upon a time Ghana had a God sent prophet in the name of Kwame Nkrumah who prophesied neo-colonialism and the way it works but we paid no heed to his message. Today we are suffering the consequences of our own folly. When will Ghanaians/Africans learn to think of our interest first? Never sign a pact with the devil you know. Because as they say the devil never sleeps and as usual the devil is always in the sordid details.

We sold our communication sector to Vodafone. As I write, Vodafone and a host of this tech companies like MTN etc. are siphoning huge millions of dollars each month out of the country one of the reasons why our cedi lost it value. We are now going to sell energy and water to foreigners for peanuts due to a few belly thinkers whose horizon about the future reaches only the tip of their flat noses. I think we are heading for self made disaster. This is national political suicide or felo de se as it is known in legal terms.

What is a nation worth if your source of communication, energy and water which is our lifeblood is the hands of foreign operators? It does not take a rocket scientist to find this out. And what if we opt out in a few years?! Another judgement debt of unforeseen consequences because we got lost in the details? No, nobody today can tell the good people of Ghana that they could not anticipate the results. A little bit of risk analysis will do the trick. However, the greatest trick America ever pulled is convincing the world that their bait and switch capitalism is the best. But that exist only in never-never land.

I bet, soon our security forces (police and Army) will be up for grabs and then we will be back to square one. Another fight for independence?

Oman Ghana don't fall for this bait and let no one put us under duress. If we permit it then we cannot turn around and say the White man is exploiting us. We don't have to give them the promissory note in the first place. If we do, it is recipe for disaster. God help our homeland Ghana and save us from a few greedy bastards. Africa Must Unite.
