We went to the same Law School: what did you learn?

Must politics make us throw away our principles – even established legal principles and precepts?

How could she mislead Ghanaians that the Ghana Government has entered into no contractual relations with the vendor of the now infamously over-bloated Oslo Chancery property?

But the facts are clear.

Government officials had visited the property and after negotiations had agreed on the consideration which is the cost of the property at 12 Million USD.

The said officials, designated by the Hon Foreign Minister Madam Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, had presented a report approving of the suitability of the property in question for use and in the same report recommended it for purchase.

So, in all the noisy shouting battles and the attempt to deceive the good people of Ghana, my question is this: why did Government through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stop the process?

Mind you, Government had accepted the offer to purchase the property at 12 Milllon Plus USD. In fact, Ghana Government was so interested, that it had requested some changes to be made to the property and permits to be sought from the Norwegian Government that would allow the property to be used as a Chancery!

It is funny that with all the bogus attempts to defend the indefensible, Government has still not provided, to the good people of Ghana, any communication indicating Government’s refusal to purchase the over-bloated property. And lest I forget, the Ministry of Finance had approved of the request and allocated resources for same!

What we all took away from the Law School, Hon. Ursula Owusu is this:
When there is a firm offer and a firm acceptance and the intention of the parties to the Contract are firmly exhibited through their interactions and communications, then you CANNOT deny that Government of Ghana was clearly committed to buying the said property! And that huge sums of Tax Payers money have already been committed to the process. Why borrow 50 million USD from SG-SSB and expend a colossal portion of it to purchasing just one property?

President Nana Akufo-Addo as Candidate promised Ghanaians that he was coming to protect the public purse. Ghanaians take words seriously. He should too.
Happy blessed Sunday and a Merry Christmas to you all!!

God bless our Homeland Ghana 
And make our Nation great and strong!!
