Mahama’s attempted resignation story reminds me of a young man who lost his father.
The deceased was his world. He was the reason for his very existence. He was more or less his livewire. Uncontrollably, he wailed his dead father.
After the body was laid in state for a stated time frame, it was time for the burial. Come and see dirges! He intensified the weeping so much so that none could control him.
“Daddy, I will go with you ooo, who did you leave me with? I can’t live without you ooo! Life will be unworthy of living without you with me here. I am going with you” he continued with these lamentations as the people looked on.
He ran ahead of the body in the casket, going to lie in the prepared grave so that he could travel with his dad.
The people were like, Oh, Osei, stop this, God will take care of you, bla bla bla bla, he paid no heed to them.
As they approached the cemetery, he slowed down his pace, he got closer to a frail-looking old man who told him to take it easy.
They reached the cemetery and he changed the tuned, “Wo ne Nyame nko ooo, Wo ne Nyame nko ooo (Travel with God). That was the end of it. He didn’t even get closer to the grave for someone to push him into it. He didn’t mean it!
That’s Mahama for you. If he truly wanted to resign, he would not have paid attention to that little piece of advice to stop. He was only flexing his muscles! He is too power-drunk to really contemplate resigning.
They think we can’t reason eh? We wait for the full details of that angle. Fairytales no longer bamboozle even kids of today, let alone adults like us!
In my candid view, this attempted resignation story is nothing but a figment of the perverted imaginations of those who allowed it in the story.
