Jake Is An Indian ‘Bosom Ba’ Delivered By His Mother - Allotey Jacobs
The recent lecture by President Mills on cessation of political insults in the media seems to have fallen on deaf ears; following the escalation of the war of words between two leading figures drawn from opposite sides of the political divide, National Chairman of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey and Central Regional Communications Director of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Ben Allotey Jacobs. It all began with Mr. Allotey Jacobs’ allegation that the NPP deliberately concocted the mass bus rape story to undermine President Mills and his government, adding that it is the hallmark of the NPP to character assassinate its political opponents. According to him, the NPP is so desperate for power that they would stop at nothing to create the impression that the country was unsafe, and also to cause disaffection for the ruling party. “…the NPP is so frustrated and they are desperate for power and would go every length, I am telling you 80% of Ghanaians believe that this (mass bus rape story) is the handiwork of the NPP,” he claimed. But the NPP Chair angrily hit back at Mr. Allotey Jacobs describing the accusations that his party masterminded the mass bus rape story as “absolute balderdash”, “nonsense” and “rubbish”. Mr. Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey, who rather described the NDC as being “among the biggest liars in the country,” questioned what the NPP will gain from creating "panic" among the public by orchestrating the story. “This is absolute nonsense, balderdash, bogus and rubbish…that is our reaction to that nonsense that they are talking…It does not lie in the mouth of people like Allotey Jacobs or anybody in the NDC to start condemning people for lying when they themselves are amongst the biggest liars in this nation...what will anybody gain by it? What will anybody gain by throwing panic into the people of this country? I think what he is saying is the ploy of a mad man almost,” he stated. As if to say bring it on, the former NDC Central Regional Propaganda Secretary on Wednesday, November 3rd, again went on the offensive calling the NPP Chair as an “Indian ‘bosom’ (Indian god) delivered by his (Jake’s) mother.” He however, added that since Mr. Obetsebi-Lamptey lacks understanding of any of the local languages, he could be forgiven.
