Editorial: An Open Letter to the Chief of Kpone

Dear Nii Tetteh Otu,

Greetings from the land of my forebears.

I’m completely scandalised and dumbfounded after watching excerpts of a video footage where you exhibited a philistine behaviour towards president Akufo-Addo at a durbar organized at Kpone earlier today.

The absurdity of the reasons for your cloddish behavior today amazes even the devil and his agents. How could you have visited the sins of John Mahama on innocent Akufo-Addo?

Look, it is not for fun that traditional rulers are revered in the Ghanaian society. Chiefs are considered to exude wisdom, intellect, tactfulness and maturity, therefore any chief who lowers the bar must be called out.

It is shocking to see no less a person than the Chief of Kpone throw these basic qualities to the marines, to the extent of screaming in the open that he is not a stooge to witness sod-cutting ceremonies. This is unheard of!

Your Majesty, since you’ve decided to take off your traditional attire and veer into active partisan politics, some of us have no choice than to walk side-by-side with you on your new found crave.

Nii, respectfully, it is important to remind you that nobody put a gun on your head to attend today’s durbar. You were clearly aware of the program outline before honoring the invitation so your argument is nauseating to say the least, respectfully.

Your blatant obsession for president Akufo-Addo’s sterling performance is what has made you jittery but like it’s said in our local palace, “when ringworm defies shyness to surface on your nose, you don’t hesitate to put plaster on.” Let those who have ears listen!

This unholy attempt to cause disaffection for president Akufo-Addo won’t wash! Just as Nii Ayi Bonte (Gbese Mantse) saw his smoothness level after castigating then candidate Akufo-Addo in the build up to the 2016 general elections, so shall you witness your biggest humiliation come December 7, 2020.

President Akufo-Addo’s win in the upcoming general elections is divine. “Who Jah bless, no man curse.”

Assalamu alaikum
