It is fruitless trying to make sense of the hypocritical tendencies of some CSOs who have sworn heaven and earth to die with Domelevo because, in their view, his integrity is uninjured. These CSOs extricating themselves from this duplicitous posturing is something in the lap of the gods.
In his heydays, Daniel Yaw Domelevo found reasons to surcharge Yaw Osafo-Maafo for paying Kroll for ‘no work done’. This was hotly contested by the then Senior Minister but all to no avail. He demanded for a hearing but was never given by Domelevo.
These CSOs went to town, held press conferences, wrote thesis, chanted ‘corruption’, demanded for the trial of Yaw Osafo-Maafo for colluding with Kroll to pay the UK entity monies for what they termed as no work done. The rest, we say, is history.
Martin Amidu, the then Special Prosecutor, penned an opinion on the Agyapa Royalties transaction and condemned Ken Ofori-Atta to hell fire. Try as he might to get Mr. Amidu to listen to him, he was unsuccessful. It was like he knocking his head against the wall trying to get an opportunity to be heard.
Our CSOs took over from there, butchered Ken Ofori-Atta, crucifying him without a trial. These CSOs, based upon these unfair treatments meted out to Osafo-Maafo and Ken Ofori-Atta, said the President had failed in battling against corruption.
Buoyed by these unjust conclusions of these CSOs, the opposition National Democratic Congress latched onto these allegations, campaigned heavily against the NPP during the electioneering campaigns.
The Auditor General’s report discloses a payment made by Professor Joshua Alabi to refund with interest an amount of GHC300,000 paid as legal fees to private legal firm Lithur Brew and Company for no work done.
Natural justice demands that Prof. Alabi is given a hearing as he insists he wasn’t afforded any opportunity to respond to these conclusions. Members of the NDC have rallied behind Prof. Alabi, demanding a fair hearing of his side of the matter.
Our CSOs, as strange as it may seem, have not found their voices relative to the Alabi issue. Our CSOs cannot see the symbiotic relationship between the Alabi case and those of Osafo-Maafo/Ken Ofori-Atta. Our CSOs have gone to bed over this matter because it involves their ‘friend’.
