MASTER BLASTER – Adewale Sobowale

As an amateur scrabble player, the phrase must have been existing somewhere in my subconscious. However, it became pronounced when the American super songster, Stevie Wonder sometime in 1980, released an album – Hotter Than July,

That album is a single that is dedicated to the late Bob Marley, the reggae icon, the album is Jammin’. Another name for that single is ‘master blaster ‘.

I hear, the President of Ghana, Mr Nana Akufo-Ado recently appointed a record 110 ministers.

Yes, 110!

That’s a world record. You could call it another master blaster. Of course, it doesn’t need to beg before entering the Guinness book of records. I like it when people are so careful about making history. It is a record which might never be erased.

Come to think of it, presiding over a country is so much work that anybody who wants to succeed in it has to be different. Let’s praise the president for doing such a marvellous job.

I bet you can not help having ministers for everything, anything, everywhere and nowhere.

Better still, we shall have ministers for, ministers of, ministers wheretofore, ministers whereof, ministers whereon, ministers whereupon, ministers wherein, ministers etc. We might even have reserve ministers and ministers in reserve

I can’t help applauding the president. What a brainy way to empower people.

The story is told of a Yoruba monarch, who, when approached by a wealthy man for a chieftaincy title and the monarch was at a loss on what to do because he had given all the titles he could think of to other people, just said the wealthy man would be titled, Oyetan – chieftaincy has finished.

And so be it!

I, once more, congratulate the Ghanaian president for a job well done.
