“The General Secretary of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC),

Johnson Asiedu Nketia, popularly known as General Mosquito has described the

raging leadership squabble within the party as a “dangerous suicide mission”

that has the potential of tearing the party apart ahead of the 2012 elections”

(Ghanaweb, October 27, 2010)

“Regional Women Organisers of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) on

Wednesday, expressed displeasure about persons who are creating unnecessary

confusion within the party. They said these faceless people are distracting the

attention of President John Evans Atta Mills to deliver on its mandate and

pursue the Better Ghana Agenda” (Ghanaweb October 28, 2010)

Ah! Atta the MESS-iah

NDC MESS-iah on the run

Ah! All Ghanaians, all

Let us save Atta Mills

Speak truth to power

Tell JJ & Konadu

Tell them their sun has set

Tell them the FIRE at Ridge

Can never light their orbit

General Mosquito tell them

Mosquito deflated like a bed-bug

Bed-bugs in Sodom/Gomorrah

Learn to speak truth to power

Sycophantic adulations

Of errant foot-soldiers

Benighted soldiers in Charlie war-teys

Chasing after designer flairs of JJ

Running after the fattened shadows of JJ

Waving at Konadu’s burdening headgear

Sycophants

Impoverished minds

Poisoned minds

Warped minds

Fed on JJ & Konadu’s debauchery

Orchestrating a mayhem of music

Drumming on the head Agya Atta

Oh! Atta MESS-iah

The damaged Fante dokono

Demonized by the Obonsam

The Obonsam FIREman

He who uses FIRE for love

Love on a Valentine’s Day

Konadu danced FIRE dance

Konadu danced in kente

Konadu’s gift of FIRE

Fire that baptized Ridge

JJ Obonsam FIREman

He who demonized Liman

He who pummeled Arkaah

He who criminalized Kufour

He who calls Mills MESS-iah

The Konongo Kaya

Atta the Mortuary Man

Atta the Fante Bastard

Atta the child of a rabid dog

Oh! Atta MESS-iah

The snail dancing kpalongo

Dancing to the gory beat

Of Obonsam FIREman

Of the rabid bulldog

He who born dogs

Fleas-ing Agya Atta

Ghanaians be bold

Speak truth to power

Speak truth to JJ & Konadu

Coward Ghanaians, cowards

Morally decrepit pastors/priests

Politically bankrupt chiefs

Journalists in the pay of politicians

NDC stomach politicians

Now is the time

All Ghanaians

Speak truth to power

Tell JJ & Konadu

Tell them their sun has set

JJ & Konadu have had it all

Nineteen years of mayhem

Of violence

Of dictatorship

Of free-loading

Of buffoonery politics

JJ & Konadu have had it all

Nineteen years of mayhem

Valentine’s Day bonfire at Ridge

Piloted from Sogakope

The craft of Obonsam Fireman

JJ & Konadu

Blazoned in FIRE horizon

Have burnt our hopes

Our aspirations

All Ghanaians, all

Let us save Agya Atta

Speak truth to power

Tell JJ & Konadu

Tell them their sun has set

Tell them the FIRE at Ridge

Can never light their orbit
