With ruthless and unpitying ferocity, members of the then governing National Democratic Congress would launch scathing attacks on the flagbearer of the then opposition New Patriotic Party for making a comment they claimed was ethnocentric.
For years, the comments made by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo which were clearly taken out of context were heavily used against him.
The NDC crisscrossed the entire country with those massaged comments and installed into the memories of the electorate that Akufo-Addo was a threat to the security of the country and that his segregation sermon ought to be rewarded with an overwhelming rejection by the populace at the polls.
They appealed to the Christian Council, Muslim Council, the clergy, civil society organisations and well meaning Ghanaians to condemn Akufo-Addo in no uncertain terms for making comments which had the potential to wound the peaceful atmosphere the country was enjoying.
These naked and vile propaganda pieces informed their campaigns since that time till they were trounced at the polls in the last elections. It appeared the efficacy of their evil invention had fizzled out as the people saw Akufo-Addo to be poles apart from the monstrous and fiendish creature they moulded him into.
Abraham Amaliba, when commenting on the on-going brouhaha that would blemish the sainthood with which our Electoral Commission was draped in, veered into an arena far more disturbing if not tragic.
Speaking to Class FM, lawyer Abraham Amaliba had this to say;
“Where are the CDDs? Where are the Occupy Ghanas? If it were to be the NDC government all these people would be speaking by now. Where is Emile Short? Where is Professor Martey? This country will burn and we will see where all of us will be and so they should continue doing it.”
One doesn't need to possess an excellent extrasensory gift to decipher the criminal intent of this comment. Amaliba needs to be more than censured. He has to be arrested for such a treasonable statement.
He appears to be urging and rallying support for the masses to cause mayhem should Charlotte Osei fail to scale through the charges proffered against her by some of her subordinates.
Abraham Amaliba, by this statement, is a professed anarchist who should be thrown behind bars because he presents a great threat to the peace and stability of the country.
Our religious bodies and civil society organisations must make this a topmost priority and join in these widespread condemnations filtering in over Amaliba's unfortunate comments. Amaliba as a lawyer should have known better.
The Good Book admonishes that the good person out of the good treasure of the heart produces good, and the evil person out of evil treasure produces evil; for it is out of the abundance of the heart that the mouth speaks. Amaliba is the anarchist incarnate, and must be arrested.
