Election Cheats are fidgeting as....

Historic 29 August 2013 Approaches

? Justice will surely catch up with those that commit crime against the State and the people therein, irrespective of their status in society and their presumptions of having inalienable rights . Such persons who today think their positions have bequeathed upon them unrestricted powers and therefore can exercise such powers abusively irresponsibly, 29 August 2013 will send a clear warning message to them. Nobody can ever again commit crime with impunity, their positions and powers will be answerable to the governed no matter how strong and protected they are. ? ? On Thursday 29 August 2013, the biggest winner of the Election 2012 case will be God. This will sharply be followed by Kofi Basoah before Nana Akufo Addo, Dr Bawumia, Jake Otanka Obetsebi and then all Ghanaians especially, the discerning ones. ? God is the One who has resolutely determined to bring under control the irresponsible propensity by those in authority in Ghana and entire Africa to abuse their positions of incumbency. He revealed this through many including Kofi Basoah whose dreams have inspired me to proclaim the good tidings through my published write-ups. This is why I have placed him second after God because the credibility of his dreams and his integrity are currently at stake. People will believe his dreams if they come to pass as I have consistently been asserting. ? ? Should evil persons who normally try to prove God a liar do so with this particular case, he says, mark my words, the visitation of God’s death wrath will loom upon them heavily. ? ? The good news again is, there are about five-hundred (500) foreign media/journalists applying for accreditation to attend the Supreme Court verdict on Election 2012 scheduled for Thursday, 29 August 2013. This has been made possible following the demonstration held by the Concerned Ghanaians in the UK in London on Friday, 16 August 2013. The petition presented to David Cameron (British Prime Minister) has gone a long way to make the swarm of foreign journalists/media proceeding to Ghana on that fateful day and date possible. ? ? This tells how strong the power of the people is. Those that have until now been living in the fool’s land, believing in their unfailing unlimited powers must from today forward think twice. To whom the cap fits, let him wear. ? ? This Court case that God has purposed for ending the absurd abuse of incumbency should be a warning to everyone in Ghana, both small and big. There is nobody who is mightier than God. Those cheats and liars, be they politicians or whatever, their crooked ways of exercising powers so detrimental to society will come under the hammer on 29 August 2013. ? ? I nominate Nana Akufo Addo for a Nobel Peace Prize. God made him wiser when thieves robbed him of his kingly crown. God made him keep quiet, patiently going after some processes intelligently lawfully. Now, Mahama will be chased out by God on Thursday, 29 August 2013. I hope the Supreme Court will demonstrate their integrity by being honest to themselves and to the people of Ghana. They must deliver a verdict based on the credibility of the evidence they have so far gathered but not as may be influenced by bribery. ? ? I thank all the organizers of the many Ghanaian demonstrations held in London and across the globe, especially those that made the live telecast of the court proceedings and the foreign media swarming into Ghana to attend the declaration of verdict on Election 2012 case by the Supreme Court possible. ? ? I can point to myself and say, I have lived up to the inspirational dreams of the following two statements. But what about you? What are you doing for the voiceless? Are you happy that the poor, the defenceless and the voiceless are happily trampled upon by those that think tomorrow will never come and hence, molest the less feeble in society. What will happen on Thursday, 29 August 2013 will be an obvious lesson for us all. No matter how the decision goes, all of us will learn that we are weaker and vulnerable at a point in time in our lives. Therefore, those boasting of, and abusing their positions today must be extremely careful. I personally have no respect for such persons and will not hesitate to make my views known to them any day any time. ? ? "Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph" said, Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia. And, "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. ? Whoever has shown bravery assisting to get rid of some bad things in society that hinder the progress of the persons and the nation, be happy. Those that have not, try to do something now as today is tomorrow’s yesterday and therefore do not put to tomorrow what you can do toady because tomorrow may be too late for what you can do today. ? ? I dedicate this article to Mr Adreba Damoah Abrefa, for his concern about the welfare of Ghanaians and his hatred for corrupt practices by those in positions of responsibility . ? ?
