A presidential staffer, Newton-Offei Abeeku has descended heavily on the host of JoyNews’ Newsfile program, Lawyer Samson Anyenini for describing Ghana as a failed state.
Samson Anyenini said today, May 22, 2021 on his show that Ghana has become a failed state under the current president, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo.
But for the presidential staffer, the comment made by Mr. Anyenini, whom he describes as unintelligent and “journalistic infidels”, is unfortunate and can’t be true.
In a social media post sighted by GhanaVanguard.com, the presidential staffer wrote: “Sampson Lardi Anyenini is claiming Nana Addo is “presiding a failed state”; but will shout “culture of silence”, when he comes under the microscope.
These are journalistic infediles with overbloated egos mounted on illusionist superiority complex and all-knowing charlatanism.”
“A functional independent State has the following 4 characteristics:
1. Defined and secured territory
2. A population
3. A government
In other words, a failed State is the one where these afore-mentioned characteristics do not exist.
As such, branding Ghana as a “failed State” can only come from a crass ignoramus with an irreversibly degenerative cerebral atrophy,” the angry presidential staffer wrote in a separate post on his Facebook wall.
