Team B’s Pungent Vulgarity: Mills Fails to Hear, See, or Smell It

*By Akadu Ntiriwa Mensema, Ph. D.

“A Deputy Minister of Information, Mr. S. Okudzeto Ablakwa, has described as

mischievous, deceitful and hypocritical, Nana Akufo-Addo’s recent controversial

statement that in ten years, he would take Ghana to the ‘Promised Land’ of

transformation and industrialization” (Ghanaweb March 19, 2011).

“Mr. Kobby Acheampong in recent times has insulted and denigrated residents of

Kumasi and the countryside, by his ‘infamous ‘cocoase kurasenii’ outburst. He

again, just last week, unprovoked, has described the Nana Akufo-Addo, as an

untidy person and a fruitcake (mad man)” (Ghanaweb March 22, 2010).

“The Deputy Minister of Water Resources, Works and Housing, Dr. Hannah Louisa

Bissiw, has lashed out at Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the New Patriotic Party

(NPP) Presidential candidate for the 2012 elections, describing him as a ‘sexy

old fool’ (Ghanaweb, March 23, 2011).
