John Jinapor was given a platform to disfigure the data Vice President Bawumia had used in his delivery, he was awestruck by the seas of familiar faces smiling at him.
When he mounted that local stage to dispute what Dr Bawumia had said, he was captivated by the wild round of applause that emerged from the same people who have chosen not to read but believe in propaganda as the tool to win elections.
With an unfettered access to the podium, with eyes and minds not ready and willing to challenge him on his figures, John Jinapor, overcome with zeal, poured out what he considered to be the truth, nothing but the truth from his perspective.
Days have gone by, Jinapor was needed to come and talk tough on Newsfile, dwarf Bawumia’s analysis to the bench while projecting his boss, Government Official 1, in the process.
Jinapor, God’s gift to the NDC, the man with the magical wand and intellect to rescue the party from the shackles Bawumia has put it in, Jinapor, the redeemer, the man with the messianic powers to tame Bawumia, fell on his sword in a fashion that was embarrassing.
Buoyed by these smiles and admiration from his gullible party members, Mr. Jinapor went to Newsfile and got schooled.
His basic knowledge of Economics was too weak to withstand the potent economic analysis Dr. Gideon Boako put forward.
John Jinapor went to Newsfile to do what I would describe as ‘Mmaa Kamfo’ economic analysis.
The Akonfem economic theory of the NDC, once again, could not pass the rudimentary stages in analyzing economic data.
