Lydia Forson’s letter to President John Mahama, which raised concerns about the ongoing power crisis facing the country, has triggered rebuttals from some social and political commentators.
A National Democratic Congress (NDC) activist and blogger, Dela Coffie, has replied the actress, stressesing that the president is working to find lasting solution to the crisis.
Dela’s letter – posted on his Facebook wall – also explains that if former presidents had taken the step President Mahama is taking now, the power situation would have been way better than it is now.
However, Dela’s May 2, 2015 reply has been deeemed by many as sexist and offensive.
He said: “I am not sure if this your frequent throwing of tantrums is a menopausal irritability or a midlife issue. Whatever it is, I am sure President Mahama is ready to take an advise on morality but certainly not from a brothel.”
Read Dela’s full letter below:
Dear Lydia Forson,
I’ve followed your Facebook history, and I’ve read a lot of your rantings including your sarcastic attack on Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams.
Indeed, it was a jaw dropping experience reading your latest diatribe directed at the president of the republic of Ghana.
Unless, this your latest attack on the President is just an act, it’s rich of you likening him to a dull school boy.
It is of no use educating you on the long term measures being put in place by President Mahama led government to end this enegy crisis once and for all.
However, it is no contradicting the fact that President Mahama is one of the visionary leaders this nation has ever seen. The president is not a ne’er-do-well fellow as the likes of you wants us to believe.
The president and his energy experts are really working. He is not just talking but walking the talk as well.
The president is working to solve the crisis permanently and not just looking for some temporary solutions. He deserves our encouragement and not cynicism.
No one is happy with the current energy situation. If successive governments had solved the energy problem instead of managing it, we wouldn’t be where we are today. This president has been very honest with the situation. He says he want to find a lasting solution not just a temporal antidote. He is doing just that.
So, you see Lydia, regardless of whether you like him or not he’s doing exactly what the people elected him to do, and he’s being as successful as anybody can be expected to be, given what he has to work with.
He was given a mandate from the people in a democratic election and he’s following up on his campaign promises. Many challenges still confront us as people but he is definitely getting the job done.
Lydia, knowledge is divine, and so, instead of trying so hard to become a poster girl for crass and classless behaviour, read and expand your horizon and see clearly what’s happening with regards to the solutions being proffered to the energy challenges.
Need I tell you that no vigorous campaign of calumny can throw the president off balance?
I am not sure if this your frequent throwing of tantrums is a menopausal irritability or a midlife issue. Whatever it is, I am sure President Mahama is ready to take an advise on morality but certainly not from a brothel.
Dela Coffie (Togbui Titriku III)
