Bagbin’s diatribe against Akufo-Addo: A case of a weak Goliath who can’t stand the might of David

Bagbin chooses to attack Akufo-Addo when he should have directed his attacks on the Supreme Court, the same way Putin has attacked Ukraine instead of the much powerful United States

The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, shares some common traits with Russia’s despotic leader, Vladimir Putin.

Putin, with his sanguineous mindset, has rather attacked a weaker vessel in the shape of Ukraine when his target has always been the United States of America.

Putin knows, deep in the hazy recesses of his mind, that the US-led NATO’s decision to absorb Ukraine into its fold is responsible for his invasion of Ukraine.

He also knows that he cannot withstand the might of the US militarily and so, has chosen to unleash his frustrations on Ukraine.

Let’s hone in on Bagbin. The Supreme Court, upon a case brought before it by an NDC lawyer, Justice Abdulai, ruled that Deputy Speakers must not lose their votes when presiding as a Speaker in the House of Parliament.

Many Ghanaians expected that if Bagbin would make a comment at all, it ought not to be the rather emotive submission he wrote.

What is so strange in this whole debacle is the reason behind Bagbin choosing to attack President Akufo-Addo instead of the Supreme Court that came up with the judgment.

Bagbin described President Akufo-Addo’s commentary on the judgment as myopic and unfortunate, Akufo-Addo who did not bring forth the decision in the Supreme Court.

What is so clear to me is the fact that Bagbin is so afraid of the Supreme Court’s Justices as he could be summoned for contempt charges and so, he had to go after Akufo-Addo who does not have the power to summon him for contempt.

Bagbin chooses to attack Akufo-Addo when he should have directed his attacks on the Supreme Court, the same way Putin has attacked Ukraine instead of the much powerful United States.

Alban Bagbin also forgot about his own submissions about the need for the Supreme Court to be petitioned to interpret the very matter Justice Abdulai went there with and when same was done and the judgment not appealing to him, he is changing his position and heaping vitriol on innocent Akufo-Addo.

If Alban Bagbin is the man he claims to be, he should go after the Supreme Court adopting the same style used to attack Akufo-Addo and see what would happen. Cowards die many times before their death, Shakespeare might have had Bagbin in mind when he authored this line.
