I have always maintained that there is a difference between a political party fooTsoldier and a fooLsoldier. The difference is not just in their spelling. No! It transcends beyond that.
A party footsoldier is full of common sense and speaks truth to power. He/She praises the good of his people and criticises the bad in equal measure. Party footsoldiers do not sell their conscience and reduce themselves to puppets and twitter attack dogs. The opposite is true for the gullibe foolsoldeirs.
Unfortunately, the latter group seem to be growing in strength and might with every passing day. These lots have been programmed to be PR robots on social media with an auto-command to counter anything that pushes governments to sit up.
If not so, why on earth will anyone sit to reason out that #FixTheCountry is an agenda against the current government and so in a haste to balance the equation, organize foolsoldeirs to also come up with bogus and preposterous hashtags?
If you’re not a politically intoxicated foolsoldeir suffering from common sense blindness, why don’t you see that #FixTheCountry is a rallying cry for the good of citizens today and posterity tomorrow?
So you saw #FixTheCountry trending worldwide and just because your pay masters will grease your palms with a few stolen cedi notes, you are telling us #GhanaIsBeingFixed and #NanaIsFixingIt. Fixing what?
Just mention one problem that Nana and the NPP government has fixed? Dumsor? Galamsey? Corruption? Unemployment? The roads? Even the much heralded Free SHS program has been saddled with problems since its inception and yet, when Ghanaians are speaking out, 700 twitter our out there shamefully trying to equalise.
You started with #FixYourAttitude and it’s unfortunate that you could not realize that its you that need attitudinal fixing. How can we move forward with people like you whose attitude is to put party reputation first ahead of a nation’s development? Don’t you think that attitude fixing political sermon would have worked better miracles in your WhatsApp groups other than on the Ghana twitter trend list?
Listen, enough of your gimmicks and to hell with your PR antics. #FixTheCountry is a movement that is stronger than “Apathai” as your “eloquent” Ashanti Regional Chairman will say. You can keep selling your conscience for a paltry sum of cedis, we’ll also keep pressuring your pay masters to sit up and solve the issues we voted them into power to solve, and there is nothing you can do about it.
Like Citi FM boss, Sammens said in a tweet yesterday, “So who created the “FixYourself” hashtag. I dare say that wisdom has eluded the person. Sad.”
