Useless Mills Acclaims a Three-Unit Block

*By Akadu Ntiriwa Mensema, Ph. D.

"President Mills has challenged critics who claim his government has not achieved

anything since assuming office to open their eyes to see the numerous developmental

projects across the country. The President made the comments when he commissioned a

three unit classroom block under the Millennium City project at Mamprobi, a suburb

of Accra (Ghanaweb July 18, 2012)

Mills’ great inspiration to all

Ghanaians open your eyes

There is Mills’ air

Mills can touch his air

Mills can see his air

Mills can hear his air

That is Mills’ achievement

The NDC’s achievements

The three unit classroom block

The three unit classroom block

The three unit classroom block

The three unit classroom block

Tilting on Judgment-Debt Blocks

Atta Mills

The NDC’s loner

The NDC’s recluse

The NDC’s hermit

The NDC’s voyeur

The NDC’s prisoner

The Castle-captive

Imprisoned in an oxygen tank

Imprisoned by Keta School Boys

Imprisoned by the Fante Gangsters

Imprisoned by the Northern Pito Team

Imprisoned by the Ahwoi Socialist Bandits

Today Mills is free

Ah! Mills has been set free

Like a dizzying unleashed pig

Mills is free

Like a pig

Mills’ freedom is mud

Mills love his mud

Like a dizzying pig

Mills runs into wide-eyed Ghanaians

Mills tells Ghanaians to open their eyes

So they can see his air

Mills’ air

The Keta School Boys

Said it: Let us free Mills

The Northern Pito Team

Said it: Let us free Mills

The Fante Gangsters

Said it: Let us free Mills

The Ahwoi Socialist Bandits

Said it: Let us free Mills

Simpa Atta is free

Mills roams free

Konongo-Kaya is free

Free to carry air

Free from his blindfold

Mills can see all

Mills can see now

Mills can see his air

Mills can touch his air

Mills can hold his air

Yes, Atta can see it all

The NDC achievements

The three unit classroom block

The three unit classroom block

The three unit classroom block

Achievements that are a mirage

That Ghanaians can’t see

Oh! Simpa Atta

Oh! Atta Mortuary

Oh! Atta Konongo Kaya

Mills’ great inspiration to all

Ghanaians open your eyes

There is Mills’ air

Mills can touch his air

Mills can see his air

Mills can hear his air

Mills can hold his air

That is Mills’ achievement

The NDC’s achievements

The three unit classroom block

The three unit classroom block

The three unit classroom block
