Ghanaians and the Supreme Court Must Understand one Thing

Many a Ghanaian belonging in the NDC family is of the conviction that the NPP, to be more precise, Nana Akufo Addo, resoundingly lost both elections 2008 and 2012. They further proceed to make pathetic claims that whenever the NPP lose elections, they cry foul, saying, the election has been rigged by their rival candidate(s).To them, the NPP fold are fond of complaining whenever they fail to win elections.

I find the assertions by the NDC sycophants very pitiable if not completely insane. Upon all the alleged electoral irregularities, malpractice, omissions and commissions constituting statutory violations that are evidentially unfolding and being established at the cross-examinations of Dr Bawumia, these mentally- blinded NDC activists are still resolutely mired in their preposterous beliefs. They still believe the NPP are making empty noises over an election that was never rigged but they actually woefully lost. The rank and file of the NDC are opinionated that Elections 2012 were completely transparent, free and fair. Anyway, they are entitled to their opinions not matter how warped they may be.

I should not waste breath on them as no matter how sensibly cautiously you would like them to understand reason, see things in their right perspectives, they will still want to behave ignorantly. No matter how cleaner you bath the pig, it will still return to wallow in its own shit sooner after. Do I mean to say, so are the NDC? I haven't said anything so nobody should put words in my mouth. I am entitled to my views much as they are entitled to theirs.

Let me quickly descend heavily on the Supreme Court. What is the point of inviting KPMG to head-count the pink sheets if they are not simultaneously going to look into, and establish that there were actually or not, over voting, non-compliance with biometric verifications, unsigned pink sheets etc. on the sheets as alleged? Will they be invited over again at some point to make an audit of any alleged statutory violations that may have taken place in the 11,842 polling stations across the nation? If the Court will re-invite them at some point in time to do as asked, then what a waste of resources? Who will be paying for that if I may ask?

Additionally, for how long is the court going to allow Tsatsu Tsikata, alias Mr. Quote Quote to on about his insubstantial cross-examination of Dr. Bawumia? The whole world is watching and individuals are forming their own opinions. I would not know what will happen if live telecast of the court proceedings had not been permitted. There should not be any underhand dealings as the whole world is watching with an eagle eye.

God has decided the winner already as extensively announced in my published articles so any game playing by whoever will not wash.

A word to the wise is enough. I will be discussing Alfred Agbesi Woyome, the Ghanaian swindler of the century in my follow up write-ups.
