If Ghana was a Western civilized country, the instance of Nana Akuffo-Addo and the NPP winning the impending 7th December 2012 presidential and parliamentary elections would be a done deal. I do not mean to belittle the intelligence of my Ghanaian compatriots by the utterance or expression of the above statement. It is a fact. It hurts to tell the truth but in the end, it soothes.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) as a political party and government are awash in indescribable foul-smelling, nose-pinching corruption. There is evidence, traces or footprints of their corruption all over the place in Ghana. The Ministers are shamelessly in the open conniving with, and purely defending fraudsters to swindle Mother Ghana of her little resources. Deputy Minister of Information, Hon. Okudzeto Ablakwah, has automatically been reassigned to the Ministry of Gargantuan Judgment Debt Payment in Favour of Swindlers. The Deputy Attorney General Barton-Odro, the Presidential Communications Director Koku Anyidohu, the highly emaciated human mosquito Johnson Asiedu Nketiah are all involved in spearheading official corruption in Ghana.
A party that has chalked such an outstanding corruption, churned out PhD degree holders in corruption and unfazed about people's perception about them has no place in civilized Western countries elections. The highly politically mature electorates will vote such a party out with their foot. However, in Ghana where politicians can easily influence people through propaganda to get their votes by offering them say, a tin of Geisha, two cupful of uncooked rice, a machete or a live fowl, we must not relent from our campaign to elect a comparatively better party and government.
Ghana must gird up for a change in government on December 7, 2012. The stench of the NDC corruption, lawlessness, ineptitude and mediocrity has reached the higher firmaments and about to choke the celestial beings. We should by common sense not allow the NDC rot to continue. Apart from my own Kumawu compatriot, Dr. Kwabena Duffour (Finance Minister), who is but being bullied by the NDC to tow their line though he keeps resisting, who else is an honest man in the NDC party? Both the males and females in government are all corrupt, thieves and highly disrespectful.
For their corruption that defies reason, calls their stewardship into question and leaves indelible disgraceful mark on the intelligence of Ghanaians, I call on you to vote out the NDC government and party in the upcoming elections. From the President through the Cabinet to Parliament, which NDC person is clean? Those that are not corrupt support their fellow corrupt ones but as far as I know, they are all embroiled in corruption.
Additionally, the overflowing fountain of wisdom from the mountain of Nana "Obuggie" Akuffo-Addo is carrying the message of developing country's human resources through education. Quality education leads to the rich development of any nation's human resources. Nana has offered to help tap into our l now underdeveloped talents by offering everyone child in Ghana a free education to the Senior Secondary School level.
There are many more Nana will use Ghana's money for in the collective interest of all Ghanaians. Unlike the NDC that are awash in selfish pursuit of wealth bordering on insatiable greediness albeit corruption, Nana believes the money belongs to Ghanaians and will use it to their general benefit.
The NDC are only best at amassing illegal wealth, insulting, intimidating and hatching plots to maim and kill their opponents but nothing else. How sensible are you should you out of all their apparent evilness and "can't do" attitude, give them a second nod to rule Ghana?
