Boakye Agyarko’s approval in limbo

What has an MBA in banking and finance got to do with energy sector? Is it because, as I have always railed against, Ghanaians love people with credentials and do equate classroom acquired credentials to wisdom?
Banking my foot. I worked for over 25 years in American Banking institutions, not as a teller but as software engineer with masters degree in Computer science for over 25 years from Virginia to Colorado and would not brag anywhere that those banking industry experiences are enough to qualify for a post as Energy minister in any banana republic let alone Ghana. And for those who do not know what drives the huge banking profits in the Americas and developed nations it is new product development and data mining of customer activities and demography lead to maximization of profits and to stay ahead of the competition. Those are, however, not energy sector and drivers; they rely on futures buying low and selling high, boosting production and or . Banking operation and the implementation of new products for profit are derived from customer wealth bracket and spending habits while energy management and operations are not affected solely by local consumption or savings but by events on the global markets. What Mr. Agyarko can derive from banking analysis and forecast cannot and will not do for the energy sector. Let us stop acts unbecoming of even elementary school boys and girls the silly notion that Ghanaians here at home should continue to struggle, in good times and the bad, only for those who have stayed outside of Ghana by design to swoop in, like vultures, to take opportunities away from those who wait in line for those opportunities. This is the NPP government that would like for us here at home to think Ghana matters when in fact they will sell this nation on the cheap under any flimsy ideas and ideals from the Diaspora.
