History Is About To Be Made In Few Hours Time

History Is About To Be Made In Few Hours Time 0n 7-12-12

“Thou shall arise and have mercy on Zion [Ghana]: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.” Psalm 102:14

Fellow Ghanaians, especially readers of my write-ups I want to thank you for your comments, calls, messages, etc. over the period and more importantly to encourage you to rise and make a wise decision on the set time Friday, 7th December.

This coming Friday we are going to the polls to elect our President and Parliamentarians across the country. Let us take the elections seriously and make a prudent choice that will have a positive and significant impact on our standard of living and the future of Ghana.

Let us not take things for granted. Let us vote for a viable Presidential Candidate that is able to think outside the box, let us vote for a candidate that is courageous and can solve the many problems confronting us today, vote for a candidate who has the appropriate and timely policies and programmes that will secure the future of Ghana.

I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is the best candidate to be voted for to bring the transformation that Ghana needs now. Nana Addo has prepared adequately to take this country from a mediocre level to a better level that will be on an enviable pedestal.

I have espoused the vision of Nana Addo and the NPP in some of my published articles in the past and this time round I humbly want to encourage you to join hands with me to vote for this Visionary and Transformational Leader, Nana Akufo-Addo.

The NDC government has been a monumental failure, and it will go down in history as the worst government in this 4th republic.

One thing that makes my heart bleed for this country is the shameful and unprecedented corruption that has characterized the governance of this current NDC government. Oh My God it stinks!

It’s so sad to note that this government has borrowed more than the eight years of the erstwhile Kufuor administration. What concrete projects and programmes can the NDC show for the $14 Billion (US Dollars) borrowed so far? Is it questionable Judgement Debts? Is it the astronomical increment of salaries and emoluments of government officials? Is it the splashing of gargantuan mansions of government officials and their cronies within four years in government? Or the very expensive campaign and adverts run by NDC? NDC where are your concrete projects? You don’t deserve a second term in office. Not At All!!!

My brothers and sisters, it will take an incorruptible leader to investigate thoroughly the corruption and shady deals under this government. And you can trust an Akufo-Addo presidency to do a better job in this regard. I am also elated that the NDC themselves attest to Akufo-Addo’s incorruptible attitude and leadership. Our oil and gas sector must benefit the ordinary Ghanaian and I humbly ask you to vote for Nana Addo. Portions of the revenue from the oil and gas sector will be used to finance the flagship and laudable Free Senior High School, Vocational and Technical Education.

We are at the crossroad, your vote, your power; your sovereignty can secure the future of mother Ghana. The choice is yours to make either to retain a very corrupt NDC government or to vote for an incorruptible Akufo-Addo led government, either to retain a high uneducated population under NDC or to vote for an educated population under Akufo-Addo, either to retain an astronomical cost of living under this NDC government or to vote for a better living standard under Akufo-Addo.

The choice is yours to make.

I can feel and see history is about to be made on Friday, 7th December. I can feel and see Nana Addo elected as President of the Republic of Ghana. Finally, I can feel and see a one-term NDC government. God is on the side of Nana Addo and the NPP for victory on 7th December 2012.

My passionate appeal to our hard working security apparatus let your loyalty this Friday be on the side of the State Ghana and not a loyalty for a President and the NDC government. Let the National Interest, patriotism and your conscience be your guide. Be professional and I know our Heavenly Father will grant us Peace. Let us vote peacefully and hand over Ghana in peace to the in-coming president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo whom has been anointed. Our security officers and the electoral commission don’t fail Ghana. We can do it! Let us do it! And our Lord Almighty will pour His blessings on this country.

I wish all the Presidential Candidates all the best! And may the best candidate who has been anointed by God win!

God bless us all. God bless mother Ghana.
