Asiedu Nketia’s story about Akufo-Addo dragging the country down

Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has used subtle metaphors to criticize President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

He told NDC members at the launch of an app for the party’s Tertiary Education Institutional Network (TEIN) aimed at facilitating the party’s activities on the tertiary education front that it is critical to pay special attention to the youth.

“Without focusing on the youth and women’s wings, no party can survive and continue to win elections,” he remarked.

He went on to draw a parabolic analogy of how the current administration, led by President Nana Akufo-Addo, came to power through deception and is now unsure how to administer the country effectively.

“Someone phoned me yesterday after we heard His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo give a speech in Cape Coast and asked, ‘General, do you recall the fable you told at a rally in Ashaiman when we were celebrating our 25th anniversary?’ ‘Yes,’ I replied. As a result, this is a good time to tell the fable again.

“It has to do with someone who got into power by lying and didn’t know what to do with it; how to lead a country.” So he went to a philosopher and asked, “How can I rule this country?” Now that I’m in charge, the people are counting on me to deliver.’

“‘OK, take these three envelopes,’ he said. People will begin to demand the fulfillment of numerous promises after your first 100 days. So, as the heat rises, go to envelop number one and read the advise within. It will take roughly a year if you use it. When you’re in danger, go ahead and open envelop number 2; it’ll get you through.

“‘Then, if there’s still an issue after you’ve adopted the recommendations in envelop number 2, you’ll open envelop number 3 and find the final solution to your difficulties.” As a result, my man left. People began to inquire, “But what are your achievements?” after the first 100 days, and the pressure was rising, so he went to his box, took envelope number one, opened it, and the instruction written in it was to blame your predecessor.

“People began asking questions because your predecessors were unable to address the problem, which is why we voted for you, so solve the problem and don’t blame your predecessor.” Then the heat returned… so he opened envelop number two, which contained the advice, “Blame the world community, blame the unfair international economic order…

“Then, after a year, many began to argue, ‘Isn’t this international environment, in which all of these countries compete in the same environment?’ What other currencies are competing with our currency if we believe it is the least performing? And aren’t those countries for countries that operate in the same environment? As a result, it cannot be a global issue.

“So, people started asking, and he called the philosopher again, who told him to go open the last envelop, because the ultimate solution was inside.” So he dashed over to the envelop and ripped it open. “Prepare your passing over notes,” he stated was the advice.
