The Banku Consensus

The 22- point communique originally issued by the non-partisan participants at the just ended National Economic Forum has allegedly been withdrawn and replaced with a single point communique dubbed, “The Banku Consensus.”

The Banku Consensus unlike it’s predecessor, the Senchi Consensus, contains a simple yet powerful message that may hold the key to unlock the prosperous future all Ghanaians wish for. The communique which was presented at a press conference earlier this morning simply read, “walk the talk.”

Explaining the content of the communique, Dr Patrick Awuah, President of the Ashesi University revealed the new communique was christened after the Ghanaian boxer, Bukom Banku. “We think our politicians can learn something from this eccentric boxer. He is in many was like the typical Ghanaian politician. He makes a lot of promises and he obviously enjoys the media circus he creates with his outrageous comments. But unlike our politicians, Banku isn’t all talk. He walks his talk. After months of verbally battering his opponent in the media, Banku entered the boxing ring and delivered on his promise. He delivered when it mattered. He walked the talk!”

Dr. Awuah stressed that 3 days of intense deliberations at Senchi will all count for nothing if government continues to pay lip service to it’s promises. “We do not need a 22-point communique. All we need is for the government to walk the talk.”
