Best Government Appointees: Akosua Frema Opare, Hassan Tampuli et al recognized

As a matter of course, every government has its good and bad! In this NPP government, we are lucky to have a larger number on the better side. Of these, there are some who have distinguished themselves as “the cream of the crop”. They have been maligned, and spoken of in a disgusting manner, but because they are unfazed in the storm of hate, they have become resilient, more focused, and brighter.

Let me start with the Chief of Staff, the first female to occupy this high office in Ghana and indeed, the whole of West-Africa. Rather than being proud of having achieved such a feat as an emerging solid democracy, when in rather more developed countries women are still fighting for mere recognition, we are soiling our sheets with loose bowels that stink of jealousy, smear campaigns, and total disregard for decorum normally accorded senior citizens.

The unfortunate dilemma that the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency is experiencing is painful. It has come to my attention that some senior elements in our Party are eager to see Honourable Akosua Frema Osei Opare vacate her seat or be sacked for issues that are unfounded. Irascibility seems to be a common characteristic of these evil propagators of lies and deceit.

They are neck-deep in their own quagmire due to their inability to practice corruption because she is jealously guarding the coffers. She will not dole out the nation’s money to people for mere chopchop just because they are party persons or deemed to have campaigned. The opportunities created by our competent President abound for all who want to avail themselves of same.

The Late Emmanual Agyarko, a gem we mourn today, is being insulted by people who think that by creating chaos before and after his internment will impact negatively on the reputation of Chief of Staff. Thus, some of our own toilet owners and others seem to have connived with the NDC to disturb the status quo. Little do they know that their arses are totally naked as they bury their heads in the sand.

Chief of Staff is incorruptible, and although she is fantastically caring, her ‘yes’ is firm and her ‘no’ is firm! So Madam, 3nfe )mo wate. Wo b3 fre adomo k) adomo saaaa! Keep on doing the nation proud, we know what you are about!

On the other hand, some of the best CEOs today are Hassan Tampuli (NPA), Egbert Faibille Jnr (PC), Dr. Clifford Braimah (GWCL), Dr John Asamoah (NIB), Joseph Boahen Aidoo (Cocobod), Nana Akomea, Mr. Hanan Abdul Wahab, and many more.

Hassan Tampuli is my pride and joy! He is everything a CEO ought to be. His crackdown without fear or favour on the nation-wreckers in the petroleum downstream industry is laudable. In fact he is so clean that no matter the amount of sludge hurled at him, nothing sticks on. He has really made me proud with all the excellence that is proffered on him. I trust, in shaa ALLAH, he will be a Minister of State in the not too distant future. Congratulations Hassan on your achievements.

Egbert Faibille Jnr, the go-easy Magas, is another person worthy of praise. Unlike some appointees, he is very accessible, unless he has a busy schedule for the day. The Petroleum upstream sector of the Oil and Gas industry has bounced back to life, moving from great to greater heights! The only CEO with a #Skanking love for all! I doff my hat!

Dr. Clifford Braima, is another competent appointee. He is like the quiet storm that is loud enough to keep you in line, and silent enough to pass you by without a scratch! Herh, the guy is working, and he is coming after the traitors! Nya’botare mano, )mo niyina b3te borborliborbor! Clifford, keep on storming!

Dr Dr John Asamaoh of the NIB, has been maligned continually by many people including the former head of legal. Lies perpetrated against this man were unfounded, yet in spite of it all, he saved the bank a whopping $120,000,000USD (one hundred and twenty million US Dollars) that would have gone into the pockets of greedy bastards who do not wish the nation well. Because he did not submit to their caprices he was maligned by betrayers from within. Today, thanks to his indefatigable efforts, thousands of employees who would have otherwise lost their jobs remain at post. Importantly, they are able to feed their families! That is the mark of an excellent CEO.

Discussing the cream of the crop, justice will not be done without mention of Joseph Boahen Aidoo of the Cocoa Board. Don’t fret if you cannot see him because he is always on the field ensuring that the proper thing is done. Cocoa Production is on the rise once again, and he intends on taking it beyond the one million tons achieved under President Kuffuor. Wo’np3 woaye, wop3 den?

Nana Akomea has overhauled the STC. Today, with new buses and well-trained drivers, coupled with professional services, on board hostesses, and cuddly comfort, traveling with STC is a relaxing experience! But what may we say about Hanan Abdul Wahab of NAFCO (Buffer Stock)? He is certainly in the group of the competent. Those who are against the Free SHS continue to malign him, but their evil shenanigans will always be exposed. At least, there is no shortage of food at schools under the programme. The man is doing great.

Go NPP go! The President, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is mighty proud of his appointees. He knows who is performing and who ain’t!
