Following the horrendous gas explosion of Saturday night which has claimed about 7 lives with over 130 people injured and several properties including cars destroyed, the whole nation has been thrown into a state of grief and devastation.
People are still counting their incalculable loses. Families and friends have lost loved ones and they are distraught. Everybody is saddened by this sad development.
But as far as one Alhassan Suhuyini is concerned, to hell with this enviable Ghanaian culture or spirit of care and love. He is so heartless and doesn’t even care about human life. Whiles every Ghanaian is sympathizing with the bereaved and mourning, Alhassan Suhuyini thinks this is a nice opportunity to cash in with his usual petty politics. So, he comes in and characteristically, links the unfortunate gas explosion disaster to the birthday to His Excellency Vice President Alhaji Bawumia. How devilish!
As far as this Alhassan Suhuyini guy is concerned, everything must be politicized in this country including natural disasters and human life or the lack of it. That is how reckless and unconscionable this guy has become. And to think that he is a Member of Parliament, makes me go crazy. How did he get to Parliament to start with? So, this guy deserves to be called an honourable man? Something must definitely be wrong with our gods. I just can’t come to terms with the fact that this guy is in Parliament making laws for us.
Obviously, he is finding it extremely difficult to balance the propaganda enterprises he was engaged in at Radio Gold with his new status as an MP. I guess that is the graven of his woes. He’s had issues with everybody in Parliament including the leadership for both sides. The likes of the celebrated Kwame Sefa Kayi worked at Radio Gold and became a “better human being” afterwards but I doubt same can be said about Alhassan Suhuyini. What has gone wrong, only God knows.
But whatever it is, let me use this opportunity to sound a word of caution to Alhassan Suhuyini that he can no longer have his way. He can no longer continue attacking Nana Addo and Bawumia. They are now the occupants of the two most important positions in the Republic; President and Vice respectively. They are thus, the embodiment of the nation and they carry the authority of the State. Any unwarranted and gratuitous attack on them, is an attack on the Republic and same would be fiercely RESISTED. This, Suhini must be told in unequivocal language. A word to the wise!
