I Deserve A Medal For Bringing The Power Barge Home � Power Minister

The Power Minister, Dr Kwabena Donkor, has highly sang his own praises at the Tema Harbour, where the Karpower barge from Turkey has finally docked. �Once again, our detractors are going to question the wisdom in inaugurating the mere arrival of an item which is already so many months late. To these cynical sceptics, I have only one answer: �Sod off! We are having a party here, take your cynicism elsewhere.�� He also called on the president, John Mahama, to award him a national medal for ensuring that the power barge eventually arrived in Ghanaian waters. He was tight-lipped about when Dumsor will end now that the power barge has arrived, but he had this to say: �Man proposes, God disposes: I can�t tell you when the power barge will start operating, or how we are going to secure fuel for its operation, or even when Dumsor will end. But one thing I am sure of, that the good Lord who safely navigated the power barge to Ghana will also bring an end to Dumsor. But even if he doesn�t, I am still not going to resign when my one-year Dumsor deadline arrives.� Editor�s note: The �Inside the News by Mpakoo� column which appears on ghanabusinessnews.com is satire.
