Cowards Wish to Bask in the Glorious....

... Victories of Martin Amidu but…..

Truly, "In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his course succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot"------Mark Twain.

As soon as Hon. Kennedy Akompreko Agyapong blew off the lid sitting tightly on the collusive award of a gargantuan sum of money (GHC51.2 million) to then publicly unknown Alfred Agbesi Woyome, many were those that started politicising the issue. Those from the NDC camp turned their propaganda machine into full gear in defence of Woyome, now a confirmed swindler of the century, a cursed name many households do not want to hear mentioned.

Among the multitude of NDC devil incarnates baying for the blood of Honourable Agyapong for exposing the deal of which the NDC was the biggest beneficiary, there was a saint sitting quietly in the Attorney General's Department, watching from afar, and planning how he could come to the rescue of the hapless Ghanaians.

Brother Martin Amidu was the man. Unlike the other numerous greedy NDC sycophants who have let go their reputation down the drain, with only their distended kwashiorkor stomachs sticking out, he responded to the public cry for help in the wake of Alfred Agbesi Woyome swindling Ghana out of GHC51.2 million. He risked his job to take up the mantle of citizen-vigilante, to defend the public purse.

Infuriated by his actions, the late President Mills was goaded by people like Koku Anyidohu, Alex Segbefia and the NDC thieving-Brigade to sack him from his position as Attorney General. They accused his action to tackle Woyome in Court for the restitution of the money to the State as amounting to a gross misconduct punishable by expulsion.

Numerous concerned Ghanaians who took on Woyome on airwaves and on the electronic media were lambasted by not only the friends and supporters of Woyome but also, by the NDC government and party propaganda machine. Rockson Adofo, Akosah Sarpong, Osei Kwame Despite, Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey, Nana Akomea, the Multimedia etc. were sued by the counsel for Woyome (Lawyer David Annan) in an Accra High Court for contempt of Court. Our charge was, we have been publishing views and making statements on air and in public that have the potential to instigate or influence the public opinion against Woyome knowing the case was still pending in court and it still is. The suit collapsed as loosely as it was mounted.

When more intelligent Ghanaians from the rank and file were fighting to ensure Woyome refunds the money to the State, almost all the chiefs with their subjects from the Volta region jumped to his defence. They felt obliged to defend him because he is the Son of the Ayigbe/Awonaland. How timid and dishonest they are?

The NDC government and party could be seen to have connived with the Attorney General's Department not to seriously prosecute Woyome. The State prosecutors always came up with flimsiest excuses to plead the court to adjourn the case whenever it was called for hearing. They incessantly said among other excuses, we have not finished compiling the docket, our witness is not available, and we have not been able to locate our Witness-in-chief because he resides abroad. These were all along the excuses they could offer. They annoyed Justice Ajet Nassam so much with their silly excuses that he threatened to take a decision that Ghana would not like should the State Attorneys continue being that nonchalant and not serious.

These cowards, connivers, malevolent beings, colluders, are now desirous to bask in the glory and praises Martin is awash in. However, Martin is holding them off at an arm's length saying, when I was in trouble; you did not help me, when I was paying the court bills you were nowhere near etc. He will only share the praises of winning the judgment debt payment cases with all except the Attorney General's Department, NDC crooks and thieves, and the Volta chiefs with their supporters who praised Woyome for conning the country out.

Recently, a frail former Supreme Court Judge, Justice Francis Kpegah, a septuagenarian afflicted with memory loss syndrome rose. This old man full of "skin pain - aho3yea", tribalism and maybe sheer stupidity, has allowed the NDC little fiends like Koku Anyidoho, Felix Ofosu-Kwakye, Okudzeto Ablakwah and a host of their internet agents and assigns to manipulate him for absurd reasons. Many an intelligent person counteracted him and his team of young evil dwarfs. Barely had they been challenged when they fell flat with face down.

Now, I shall invite all those presently exhibiting acts of cowardice shed them to join that group of discerning Ghanaians seeking justice for Ghana now that the Supreme Court is yet to rule on the election 2012 petition. They must be emboldened by my invitation to throw their weight behind Nana Akufo Addo. I do not want them to come crying, begging to share any concomitant glory and praise once Nana wins which he surely will. Do not be like those described by Mark Twain as stipulated in the opening paragraph.

Cowards die many times before their death. Nana Akufo Addo is on course to winning the Supreme Court case according as revealed in a dream to Kofi Basoah. Therefore, come one come all to join his multitude of supporters. Do not listen to the nonsense being spewed by the NDC. Could you not see how John Mahama's days as President are scrambling to tumble? Afari Gyan and Asiedu Nketiah have put a nail in his presidential coffin. The voluminous pink sheets will be the last straw that will break his back.

We want Justice! We want justice! We want justice! I was shocked to hear my granddaughter of four say, "Mahama is a thief. Mahama is an Error President." I questioned to know from where and how she came by that statement or phrase. She said she learnt it from the radio during the live telecast of the recent demonstration against President Mahama on Saturday, 15 June 2013. Is this how powerful the on air pronouncements are? If so, then listen to Sources radio, Naspa and WBLS radios in London.

IT DOES NOT PAY TO BE COWARD. IT DOES NOT PAY TO RIG ELECTIONS. HOWEVER, IT PAYS TO BE TRUTHFUL LIKE MARTIN AMIDU & NANA AKUFO ADDO.

I dedicate this publication to Yaw John (Paris) and all those supportive of Nana Akufo Addo's honest and peaceful course to secure justice for Ghana.
