J. J. Rawlings Will Finally Fail

J. J. Rawlings Will Finally Fail
Listen to article

It is a well-known fact that, many organizations that were established out of coercion did not succeed, but collapsed in the long run. Again, any organization that is founded without proper planning and arrangement, but through intimidation to satisfy one’s selfish ambition will crumble as a matter of natural sequence. The same goes with politics when people are coerced and given a bait to “cement” them to an unattractive organization.

God, being the Omniscience, allowed human beings the freedom of choice, however one faces the ultimate consequences of one’s choice, whether good or bad. Where are the shadows of Joe Appiah, K. A. Gbedemah, Kwame Nyanteh etc? But Nkrumah and Busia will never die, hence CPP and UP; conversely, these two political parties will continue to dominate the Ghanaian arena of politics.

On June 4, 1979, Ghanaians heard the screaming voice on the radio of one J.J. Rawlings as having overthrown the then very unpopular military government. We later saw his personality as a bonny and lanky hungry-looking Flight Lieutenant. Many people began arguing about his citizenship because of his mulatto colour, however because he ascended to the political leadership illegally by the gun, this argument died down quietly. Ghanaians must beware of foreigners! The economic doom of Ghana and our present predicament stem from the fact that, we allowed this “foreigner” to put his buttocks on our royal and highly coveted and gold decorated presidential seat

It is highly pathetic, that no one has ever started and ended with Mr. Rawlings unless one condescends to the level of an imbecile. Analyzing the leadership background of Mr. Rawlings, he cannot succeed when God sends His holy angels from heaven to work with him. Based upon this, I wish to prophesize that, the relationship between Prof. Atta Mills and Mr. Rawlings would grow very bitter/sour blended with animosity; it is just a matter of time. Who ever dreamt, that the ideas of Dr. Obed Asamoah and Mr. Rawlings would some time to come be at disparity? Now it has happened. Who ever thought that in the last days, Dr. Kwasi Botchwey and Mr. Rawlings will back-face each other? It has happened. Who could have predicted, that one-day Mr. Rawlings could manhandle and slap his father’s age-mate? Mr. Arkaah? He was alleged to have done that. How come that his own close associate- WO1 Adjei Boadi who released him from jail at the niche of time has now become his archenemy? Nobody could have envisaged that our own countryman Capt. Kojo Tsikata will one-day ran away from Mr. Rawlings. The “Siamese twin” brother of Mr. Rawlings, Capt. Akatapori had to be assisted to flee from him into exile.

From the on-going facts and a lot more, one can easily conclude that Mr. Rawlings can never start and end successfully with anybody. That is why I urge all the prophets of NDC to fast and pray very hard for the party else his natural flair for disunity will disintegrate the party. Mr. Rawlings will finally fail and when that happens, members of NDC are respectfully advised to comfortably feel free to join the CPP or the UP shadow- NPP. Hurray!!!
