“The NPP says it care less about how its opponent would want to interpret the

Flagbearer’s [Nana Akufo-Addo] tribute to the late Theresa Amerley Tagoe. In the

said tribute to the late Member of Parliament for Ablekuma South Constituency,

Akufo-Addo referred to Volta Hall, the all-female hall at the University of

Ghana as ‘the cynosure of all healthy young males at Legon.’ Akufo- Addo

continued in his tribute that ‘it was during our time at Legon that for the rest

of her life, I came to call her ‘Bottoms’ as against the more familiar ‘TT.’ The

origin of the nickname will continue to remain confidential between us’”

(Ghanaweb, February 2, 2011).

The NPP must care

Nana Akufo-Addo

Owner of sexual metaphors

Cacophonic metaphors

Of mental masturbation

Of fermented sexual ego

NPP “care less”

NPP must care

NPP should care

NPP should speak truth to all

NPP should speak truth to SEXISM

Truth to the objectification of women

Nana Akufo-Addo

His soaring eloquence

His seductive narrative

His serenading perversion

His estranged categorizing

But Lady Theresa Tagoe slept

Oblivious of his silly “soliloquy”

Oblivious of his vapid bravado

Of his fermented sexual imagery

Of his intellectual masturbation

Lady Tagoe was a flower of the past

A flower of the CYNOSURE-ED pit

The province called Volta Hall

Patriarchalized as an orgiastic pit

By men like Akufo-Addo

The NPP must care

Akufo-Addo is wrapped

In pedagogies of sex

In a federated moral chaos

In fermented desires

In a discredited sexual pose

In a prison of traumatic orgies

The NPP must care

Not to objectify women

Women’s bottom




The NPP must care

Akufo-Addo’s Bottomizing”

Whether big












Shouldn’t be in a tribute

Not on the national stage

The NPP must care

NPP you should care

Akufo-Addo is on a precipice

Akufo-Addo’s lose tongue

Of patriarchy

Of objectifying women

Of non-decorum

Of non-respectability

Of non-politesse

Political debit-ing

Akufo-Addo’s tongue

His Freudian-slips

His political train-wreck

His aging testosterones

His fermented sexual ego

Ah! His ideas are sour

The NPP must care

Speak truth to all

Truth to Akufo-Addo

His sexual imageries

His sexual references

His sexual buffoonery

Withering pedagogies of sex

And he is federating moral chaos
