The National House of Chiefs (NHC) has denounced as distasteful on-line publication by the New Free Press, linking the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, with an alleged bribery payment to swing the Supreme Court’s verdict on the presidential Election Petition in favour of President John Dramani Mahama.
This is a good call by the NHC. It is so because the sanctity and the how dear we hold our Chiefs and Kings is being eroded by some faceless individuals, who think that it is their way or nobody else’s.
The President, John Dramani Mahama was also compelled to add his voice to the voices of reason that has condemned the irresponsible publication.
The job of the media is among other things is to inform, educate, entertain, but what really was that publication, expected to achieve?
After wasting eight months of our time, on a frivolous suit, we are still engaged in debating who did what and who influenced who.
We cannot for the reminded of President John Mahama’s term in office, be debating the judgment, no country or continent is waiting for us, while we spend man hours debating the issues.
The Highest Court of the land has given a ruling on a landmark case, although we are at liberty to disagree with the ruling, we cannot and should not hold the country to ransom.
We hold the country in trust for posterity. No one political party has the panacea to our problems, and no one political party will be in power forever, so why think that without you in power nobody can rule this country.
We are having all these problems because of the mentality of one political party.
We at The Herald think that the publication must be treated with contempt that it deserve. We are a nation of thinkers, let’s do away with these lazy people and hypocrites who think they can hide behind the internet to destroy other people.
This country becomes better for all of us and when we destroy it, we do so for all of us.
