Are Kennedy Agyapong's pronouncements mere Allegations or absolute Truths?

Are Hon. Kennedy Agyapong's pronouncements mere Allegations or absolute Truths?

Hon. Kennedy Akompreko Agyapong has made lot of scary statements about the NDC government and party. The revelations of the murderous intentions by the NDC to stick to power by hook or crook are quite nerve-wracking. I initially said to myself, why could not he report them to the police or the National security if they are true as alleged?

A second thought quickly struck me as I was brooding over the truthfulness or the falsehood of the assertions. How could he report the cited instances of the NDC intended criminalities to the police or the National security? The current security forces are unprofessionally biased. They seem to favour the NDC. For the just stated fact, any sensible and impartial person in Ghana can hurriedly vouch for with certainty. What did the police or the security forces do when that ignoramus Nii Lante Vanderpuiye was disenfranchising Akan-speaking and Akan-name-bearing Ghanaians from registering in Odododiodoo Constituency in Accra? The police did nothing. They simply stood by unconcerned as the Vanderpuiye's hired thugs unleashed mayhem on their targets as specified above. What did the police or National security do when a snitch caught that notorious and accursed Akan, Yaw Boateng Gyan, on recorded tape planning mayhem against a section of Ghanaians? Once again, they did absolutely nothing!

There are numerous instances where the police have been as quick as lightning to effect arrests when it involved NPP members even though their alleged committed offences pale away completely compared to that by the NDC.

In the absence of police or the National security impartiality, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong is right to do what he does - going on air with his intercepted information on NDC government and party criminalities. His work is to inform the Ghanaian public and it is up to us to make individual or collective informed decisions.

Some paid NDC agents are stockpiling firearms in some houses in both the Ashanti and Brong-Ahafo regions. Some NDC crooks are roaming about some villages in the Ashanti and Eastern regions distributing pamphlets bearing the picture of caretaker-President Dramani Mahama as the proponent of the free Senior High Secondary education. If the NDC so-called "Better Ghana Agenda" had worked successfully as they claim, would there be any need for their desperate actions?

Dr. Afari Gyan, that probably determined rented NDC agent bent on rigging the elections for the NDC, is alleged to be importing faulty biometric machine batteries for distribution in the NPP strongholds during the upcoming December 7, 2012 elections. Once some rumours had it that the NDC were paying legally registered voters GHC40 to collect their voter's registration cards from them. By this deplorable attitude, they mean to disenfranchise possible NPP voters from casting their votes.

The evil plans NDC have for the impending election are more than Hon. Agyapong can say all alone. We need to take action by way of officially informing some world leaders, world organizations and world opinion leaders. We have to be proactive than being reactive. As had I, known is always at last, it is high time we took action.

I will do the honourable job of informing the respective world leaders if and only if, the majority of Ghanaians will permit.
