THE USA IN GHANA AND NIGERIA

Ghana - by Wieland Koerbel

"The US Africa Command is now at war on the continent of Africa.

"And not surprising, the war is about oil." (AFRICOM Goes To War In Africa -m)

Ghana made its first big oil find off the coast in 2007, and turned on the taps in 2011.

Reportedly, Mossad and the CIA are very active in oil-rich Ghana and Nigeria.


There is a fear that Ghana could become a failed state, just like Nigeria.

Politicians in both Nigeria and Ghana have their armed militias.

The CIA used militias to get control of the oil in Libya.

On 28 January 2012, at modernghana.com, Lord Aikins Adusei has written:

"Azorka Boys and Bamba Boys: the coming Boko Haram in Ghana?"

According to Adusei:

1. Nigeria's former head of state General Olusegun Obasanjo predicted that Nigeria would be counted among the 'ten leading nations in the world by the end of the (20th) century.'

But, Nigeria has become a failed state.

2. Professor Wole Soyinka, in a BBC interview, described the Boko Haram terrorist group as people from the Islamic madrassas, armed and employed by the elite in the north.

In November 2011 some top people, including Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume, were arrested after it was discovered that they had met and supported Boko Haram.

In January 2012 President Goodluck Jonathan announced that members of his own government were supporters and sympathisers of the Boko Haram terror group.

3. In the south of Nigeria, politicians also have their armed militias.

These militias steal ballot boxes and carry out assassinations.

The Area Boys attack their political opponents, rob oil tankers, and kidnap oil workers for ransom.

4. In Ghana, the ruling NDC have their Azorka Boys.

The opposition NPP have their Bamba Boys.

The Azorka Boys and Bamba Boys are 'violent and lawless thugs' working for certain politicians.

During elections they are supplied with weapons.

Brig. Gen. Robert Ferrell, U.S. Africa Command C4 director; Maj. Gen. David R. Hogg, U.S. Army Africa Commander; and Brig. Gen. Joseph Searyoh, director general of Defense Information Communication Systems, Ghana Armed Forces

5. Ghana's problems include:

Corrupt politicians, civil servants, judges and police.

Extreme poverty and inequality in the northern part of Ghana.

Politics based on tribe and religion.

A failing educational system.

Massive unemployment.

The really crazy thing is no-one seems to know how these insurgents and militants sprung from the earth like wild mushrooms. Clearly, there seems to be a connect between these outgrowths and the presence of oil or precious natural resources. Politicians in their pursuit of power put these rampaging teams together and all so soon they grow too big for their breeches.

After elections when there are no more need for them, they are abandoned and weapons issued to them are never recovered. It becomes open season as they rove the cities and countryside as guns for hire. It is at this stage that destabilizing agents take charge and turn them to other uses. From here on down, tactics change and their MO become really very sophisticated.

In Nigeria, we have seen Boko Haram metamorphose from bike-riding gangs on hit-and-run missions to warfare and explosives experts. Without a doubt, they've been getting expert help. From Dane guns and locally manufactured pistols to Ak-47s, rocket propelled grenades, shoulder rocket launchers and IEDs.

I wouldn't call my country Nigeria, a failed state quite yet but it's definitely headed in that direction, and it's headed there with a lot of input and shoving from foreign bodies and entities that pretend to be our friends and have come bearing Greek gifts and a how-to-do-it manual on how to kill ourselves.
