ELVIS AFRIYIE-ANKRAH MUST STOP HIS BOORISH ANTICS
I am told Elvis Afriyie-Ankrah, that slouch of a director of elections for the NDC was at his louche best when he took President Akufo-Addo to the cleaners.
At their solidarity press conference held at Aflao in the Volta Region, Afriyie-Ankrah unsentimentally used objectionable and offensive expressions to describe President Akufo-Addo.
He referred to the President as a dwarf at the Jubilee House. Such an uncouth behaviour, some of us thought, was a relic of our past history, not knowing that these people still practice these noncivilized acts today.
Akufo-Addo was called all sorts of names back in the days but that could not derail his climb to the Presidency. It is high time these people ended their boorish, agrestic and unrefined traits and embrace the tenets of modern democracy.
Despite the vilification they threw at him in opposition, the people of Ghana, the well-meaning ones, saw a messiah in him and he has demonstrated that by living up to expectations as far as his promises and pledges to the masses are concerned.
Insults will not play any significant role in our elections this year. The people yearn for policies and programmes that can affect their lives positively, not vitriolic attacks on political opponents.
Elvis Afriyie-Ankrah, once again, has shown that the NDC has no message less than six months into the next elections.
