Afenyo Markin Is Becoming The Face Of Arrogance

Even the most ardent critics of the Auditor-General, Daniel Yao Domelevo, are hard put raising a voice of support and sympathy for the work, he has set himself to do.

But members of the New Patriotic Party and their media hirelings are not amused about his work, as sooner rather than later, the chickens as they say, will come home to roost.

The lid will soon be blown on them, and Ghanaians will see, the rot and the wanton dissipation of resources, under their watch.

The slapstick comedy begun with the Daily Guide newspaper, which has now become the harbinger for the destruction of hardworking and honest men and women in the country.

When they felt the man was getting closer to them, they unleash their attack dog (Daily Guide) to write disparaging, unfounded and a very pathetic story against the Auditor General.

What is rather intriguing and exposes this substandard inferior tactics is that, it was the same way the removal of the Chairman of the Electoral Commission (EC), Madam Charlotte Osei started.

The same Daily Guide, was used to sow seed of distrust in the minds of Ghanaians, before the plan to have Charlotte Osei axed took shape.

The Auditor-General, as elders say, is not a cold cassava; he threw the first punch when he petitioned the president, Akufo-Addo, about the interference of the Board Chairman Prof. Edward Dua Agyeman.

The latest to join the dance but missed his steps is the Member of Parliament (MP) for Efutu Constituency, Alexander Afenyo Markin.

Contributing on Joy FM/MultiTV news analysis programme Newsfile last Saturday, he called on the vociferous Auditor General to either resign or submit to due process in his case against the Board Chair of the Ghana Audit Service.

According to him, Daniel Domelevo is not being fair by whipping public support in his claim that his work is being interfered with by Prof Edward Duah Agyemang.

What sort of hypocrisy and double standard is Afenyo Markin engaged in, when the Daily Guide carried stories impugning the reputation of Daniel Domelevo, he was expected to fold his arms and allow a bunch of no good people to destroy his character and person.

The sad aspect of this comedy of the absurd is that the dramatis personae are prominent members of the political class.


There seem to be a nexus between Kumawood and members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP). Recent happenings in the country have validated the views of those suggesting that after office, some of our politicians will make it big as actors.

Curiously, Afenyo Markin, not too long ago, was all out defending his reputation, when allegations were leveled against him by workers of the Ghana Water Company Limited.

In the considered opinion of this newspaper, Afenyo Markin, is becoming the face of arrogance of this government, his posture, utterance, heckling and all knowing attitude,when he appears on programmes is making him the butt of jokes on the social media.

Like Napoleon Bonaparte once said, “In politics, an absurdity is not a handicap”.
