I have no time to rest, no matter how I tried to do so because any time I read the Ghanaian news, I quickly see the hypocrisy of some political parties individuals who want to convince the suffering Ghanaian population that NDC or NPP is the best political party in the country that has all the expertise and qualities to save the suffering masses.

Mahama Can Never Win Election With New Voters’ Register – Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu Reveals, this headline appeared in the ModernGhana news online, Sunday edition, December 22, 2019.

I can’t recollect any longer, how many times I have proved that politics in Ghana are for politicians' enrichment or comfort but not for the suffering masses.

In the above article, according to Mr. Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, the Member of Parliament for Suame constituency and leader of the Majority in the House, “NDC can never win elections in Ghana if the Electoral Commission compiles new voters’ register, the reason they are rejecting it.”

Mr. Bonsu, said, “Ghanaians must not trust these people and warned that the NPP should be careful with them.” Again, he stressed further: “Our politics should be a contest of ideas and not tear down this country and no party in opposition should wish the failure of a party in Government. Because when they succeed the people of Ghana are better for it and the country is the winner.”

So, Mr. Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, you know that politics must possess a contest of ideas not to tear down Ghana and again, no party in the opposition should wish failure of a party in Government because when they succeed the people of Ghana are better for it and the country is the winner.”

Please, Mr. Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, can I ask you a few questions? When John Mahama, the former Ghanaian leader, lost the 2016 elections to the current government, NPP, there were many projects, including hospitals, which were left uncompleted.

According to you, “no party in opposition should wish the failure of a party in Government,” so if the NPP is not seeking the failure of the NDC party, why did NPP or Nana Akufo Addo fail to complete the uncompleted projects left by John Mahama?

Another question is: according to you, “when they succeed the people of Ghana are better for it and the country is the winner.” By reference, when they succeed, you are referring to the NPP, which is for the entire Ghana” was the uncompleted projects left by Mahama for Ghana or for the NDC?

In the past, I have proved that whatever, statement any NPP party official makes, comes back to haunt them. This has happened to the President himself, Nana Akufo Addo, the Vice President, Bawumia, the Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori Atta, and the Minister of Education, Opoku Prempeh.

In fact, these statements often made by political party officials quickly reveal or expose them as greedy self-interest people, looking for all possible avenues to hold on or win power to enrich themselves, instead of solving the problem of the suffering masses.

Do you want any intelligent Ghanaian to believe that you are fighting for the suffering masses after reading this article? A political campaign is necessary but, please, think deeply before you speak because the words once out and against you can’t be retracted.

How do you want Ghana to be a successful country if NPP fails to complete all the projects Mahama left behind uncompleted? Hypocrite.
