JJ is Right: NDC’s Greedy Bastards Pimp Wealth

*By Akadu Ntiriwa Mensema, Ph. D.

“The New Statesman indicates that the NDC will this week find and announce the

“owner” of the ‘$20 million NDC headquarters’… Alfred Woyome was to be named as the

owner of the building but the party decided against this course of action in light

of the baggage Mr. Woyome is carrying, the latest being the whopping $41 million

judgment debt ruled in his favor. Why the NDC decided to engage the Chinese in

building this property. For a party that is very fast in churning out propaganda,

the details about the ownership of this building has been met with varied responses

from the NDC ranging from denials, counter denials and acceptance ownership”

NDC barked at NPP & Jubilee House

NDC celebrates NDC’s palatial office

Ah! Our homogeneity

Of hypocrisies

Of stomach politricks

Oh! Our populist simplifier

Of passivity

Of poverty

Entombed in Mills’ NDC

Pimps of anti-corruption

Retailers of corruption

Con artists of it all

Ah! Ghana is suffering

Suffocated by the elites

Elite vultures in flight

In graceful flight

Soaring with grace

Still eternal predators

With fidelity to violence

Kills the masses slowly

With their violent degrees

Eternal predators

Pimping state wealth

Retailing the future

Wielding pathologies

Of hypocrisy

Of Trojan viruses

That kill the dream

That kill the future

Eh! Massa Ghana hard oh!

I tell you we be docile paa

One person get $41 million

Na dat be true NDC pay out

Woyome be NDC gutter

He dey carry the NDC filth

Ghana hard paa, hard paa

Me I know proper so

The elites dey con us

NDC be the same as NPP

Ah! NDC be more thief

Yes, all the noise dey make

You see how fat Mosquito be

Asiedu Nketiah now get chest

Ah! Bagbin’s cheeks dey fill up

Like Korle in the raining season

Ama Benyiwa now get three legs

NDC cry that NPP build Jubilee

NDC laugh that NDC build office

Massa Ghana hard oh

We for rise up now

Yes, we for rise up now

Arrogant elitist thieves

Like vultures in flight

The pen-armed robbers

The killers of the dream


All dead chameleons

Their colors never change


Poisonous like DDT

In the body politic

NPP builds Jubilee House

NDC howled, cursed

JJ Rawlings & Mills

Bagbin & Tony Aidoo

Mosquito & Yaa Konadu

Cursed the NPP & Kufour

Mourned the loss of money

Lamented the use of Indians

Indian capital, Indian labor

Jubilee, the national home

Was called a mortuary

Was called a poultry farm

Today NDC that was broke

Broke in 2008

Like Akuapem Church rats

Today NDC is building it all

In their swollen cheeks

In their swollen stomach

In their swollen buttocks

NDCers building mansions

NDC is building an office

Office they can’t account for

NDC is using state resources

Using stolen wealth

Using Chinese expertise

Using Chinese labor

Using Chinese water

Using Chinese wood

Using Chinese sand

Ghanaians are suffering

Suffocated by the elites

With their violent degrees

Pimping state wealth

Retailing our future

Wielding pathologies

Of hypocrisy

Of Trojan viruses

That kill the dream
