Ghanaians are frantically preparing to go to the polls on December 7 to elect their President and law makers into whose hands they will entrust their well-being for the next four years. The realisation of the danger the Nation Destroying Citizenry (NDC) epitomise has dawned on most Ghanaians, making them ever willing to proceed to the polling booths intended to vote massively wisely. The power of the thumb which is more thunderous than the crackling of any known fire arms will decide the fate of the Notoriously Destructive Citizens (NDC), hurtling them down the path of obscurity into the abyss of oblivion. The THUMB which is mightier than any known sword, weapon or implement of destruction, will be used to stamp out the intimidation, threats and the vanity of the NDC's selfish life for good.
It is lately only in Ghana that one sees all and sundry panicking feverishly when national elections are about to take place. It is also in Ghana that one hears all declaring indulgence in intercessory prayers for peaceful elections whenever national elections are coming up. And further to that, it is only in Ghana that a history is in the making where a Former President (Flt. Lt J.J. Rawlings) wields a near-parallel Executive power to that of the sitting President. My question to all Ghanaians wise and idiotic, sorry to say, is why? Is it not down to the fact that we are never ready to call a spade the spade, but rather pretend it is something else only to deceive ourselves in the long run? Most of our present unwarranted fears emanate from the fact that an individual, in the person of Former President J.J. Rawlings, has been allowed to foolishly hijack the politics of Ghana to the detriment of all. He has become a tin god worshipped by his hypnotised followers who are trigger happy to do his bidding at any time irrespective of how senseless it may be. Is it not hypocritical the call by our pastors to secure peaceful co-existence between the Ex-President and the sitting-President? Why can't they tell the truant Former President his current position is as near ordinary citizen like anyone else, but always do purport he is as powerful as the sitting President? Hence, his deceptive self pride of still being Mr. Somebody whereas in reality, he is Mr. Nobody. With this despicable Ghanaian mindset of according him equal superiority as the current President, he will forever terrorise Ghanaians into subjecting to his capricious demands.
Until Ghanaians are able to tell the truth by declaring it boldly before the deceiving Human Omnipotent if any, we shall continue to pray at all elections but to no avail. Why at all can't we for once exercise our God endowed wisdom for our own good? Let us all join efforts and hands together to resist the oppressor and he will flee, as the Bible says. The NDC for lack of defensible ideas, issues and policies, are imploding. They are likely to get impaled on their own iron-wrought pack of lies. I have seen them inside out, so have you, and they are just worthless empty vessels making the most noise. I have listened and continue to listen to them but they are unable to convince me. They are unable to engage in any persuasive policy debates without suffering their usual intimidatory seizure. This then makes them issue threats upon threats. They do so in the hope of frightening people into voting them into power to avoid being massacred by them in case they the NDC, go on rampage if they lost the elections.
The NDC is desperate for no apparent reason. Is it just because they are in dire need to squander the petrol money likely to accrue to Ghana sooner? Whatever their hidden dreams and agenda are, they will not succeed until they campaign on sound policies that can win the minds and hearts of intelligent Ghanaians to them. Enough with that tactical AFRC/PNDC fears that psychologically turned bold men into cowards and made them far worse than women of the weaker sex some time back. Issuance of threats will not win them my vote; neither will it win them yours. And gone are the days when they could intimidate people with impunity. That intimidating brolly with which they covered the entire nation subjugating all into cowards has been blown over and away by the mighty wind of the NPP for good by the grace of God Almighty.
The NPP which is far more articulate on their noble policies will win these upcoming elections hands down. But mind you, there should be no complacency on the part of the winning ELEPHANT until the battle is won. All NPP supporters are vigorously to continue with their sensible campaigning, knocking on doors and visiting voters in their homes with the good message to elect Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo-Addo as the next President of Ghana. For everything better, it is NPP. To ensure the continuity of the enjoyment of undented basic human rights and democratic freedoms, vote for the NPP. The NPP by hard work and humane campaigning is destined to win the elections at "one touch". The NDC can weep their eyes out with tears of crimson trickling down their cheek in beads, tamping their foot and issuing all the threats in the world they can think of, they are going to lose BIG TIME. My colleague Mr. Adomako Mensah, a stauch activist of the NDC is to get his handkerchiefs ready to dab the tears of his eyes comes December 7, 2008. This is a prophetic admonition.
