Political platforms are solely meant for political parties to launch their manifestoes and explain their vision to the electorate in order to canvass for votes in a very civilized manner.
However, platforms are not meant to be launching pads for slanderous projectiles, threats and intimidations with the aim of inciting their party supporters to war if a Presidential candidate of a particular political party lose an election. For them, if victory does not go their way, then no other political party should have its way. A clear example is the battle cry of the NPP with its tribal slogan “We Akans are not cowards as some Ghanaians used to say – We are very brave so” All die be die” you must be prepared to die for me to become President al all cost – Nana Akuffo Addo. Reason must rather supersede emotions in the country’s political life. Politicians are too inclined to conduct their political affairs more with selfish interests rather than the National interest and one such politician is Nana Akuffo Addo who is prepared to deceive Ghanaians in order to become President – He will surely be retired by John Mahama whose demeanure will make him win.
Hon. P.C. Appiah Ofori publicly accused the then NPP MPs, including Nana Akuffo Addo of collecting 5,000 dollars each from Ex-Prez Kuffour who was himself corrupt in order to pass the infamous Vodafone Bill in Parliament. Nana Akuffo Addo also collected that money because he was then the Member of Parliament for Abuukwa South.
No member of the NPP denied that allegation by Hon. P. C. Appiah Ofori for speaking the truth the NPP govt described him as a madman for speaking the truth, how sad. In the NPP, it is a crime to speak the truth or speak against corruption so what is Nana Akuffo Addo talking about,
2. All incriminating files in the various Ministries were stolen by NPP former Ministers in 2009 to avoid detection by the incoming NDC govt. in 2009. All such important files are in the homes of these corrupt ministers who are with holding them with impunity.
3. An Office of Accountability was created by Ex-Prez Kufour at the Castle – Osu. To cover up corruption, and he even said that corruption started from Adam and did nothing about it.
4. Haruna Esseku – former National Chairman of the NPP told Ghanaians that he collected so much kick-backs, bribes from businessmen at the Castle and that the cash could not even be packed in to his carboot- this statement cost him the NPP National Chairmanship. The castle was the office of Ex-President kufuor who was collecting bribes waa,waa,waa,waa.
5. On free SHS, education by Nana Akuffo Addo – it is only an empty campaign message to win votes and NOT A POLICY – because if it was a policy, stakeholders like NAGRAT, UTAG, CHASS, NUGS, GES and GNAT would have been consulted first so Nana Akuffo Addo must give Ghanaians a break and stop throwing dust in to their eyes. He must refund the 5,000 dollars bribe that he collected from Ex-President
Kufour in order to pass the bill in Parliament on the sale of Vodafone before telling Ghanaians that there will be no place for corruption under his gov’t in his address to University students at KNUST in Kumasi a week ago. Is that clear?
We are yet to hear such unpatriotic behavior from President John Mahama, but we cannot get it, because as at the time of writing this article, no single corrupt act has been committed by him during his time as a Member of Parliament for Bole/Bamboi as well as his time as the Vice President of the Republic of Ghana, No amount of vilification can therefore destroy him at all.
Meanwhile, the late Prez. J.E.A Mills was my man and God called him on 24th July, 2012, now Prez. Mahama is my man, so dear reader, let him be your man as well as your family and friends for a Better Ghana, because he is a man of action who always promise and deliver. The bare facts are there for all to see, that is the reason why Jerry Rawlings called on Ghanaians to pray for him and help him to succeed.
Therefore in terms of corruption, Nana Akuffo Ado has scored 100% while Prez. John Mahama has scored 0% because Ex-president promised zero tolerance for corruption and rather added the figure 10 behind that zero to make it 100% tolerance for corruption – where was Nana Addo?
So Nana Akuffo Addo + Ex- Prez Kuffour the value is the same – period, the NPP flagbearer must stop breaking the ear drums of Ghanaians.
