Sometimes, I find it difficult to believe the utterances made by some public officials, particularly when such statements are good only as a demonstration of frustration or uselessness. I have all along been tempted to disregard statements coming from government functionaries, especially those that shift blame for their own inadequacies.
Most of such useless statements facilitate the buck passing that has dominated our national affairs over the years—and they annoy us! We have had too much buck passing under all governments, especially in this 4th Republic, beginning with the Kufuor government’s blaming the Rawlings one for leaving behind intractable problems. Then, when President Mills took over, the blame game continued. It has been so until now, and will definitely continue ad infinitum.
