If the alternative is empty then the current is very useless

Someone should tell Gabby Okyere Darko that if the alternative is empty the current is USELESS.

He has forgotten that if something is empty it can be filled. The bucket has to be empty before it's filled with WATER.

What is wrong with a party asking for its countrymen and women to contribute to a manifesto to will be turned into a policy document to govern them.

Does it mean Nana Addo was as well empty when he met stakeholders to draw ideas from them to develop his 2016 manifesto?

Has Gabby forgotten Democracy has to be government of the people, by the people and for the people?

Is Gabby telling us they NPP doesn't need any wise counsel from the people they are governing? No wonder we are in this mess today under these government.

He should know that power belongs to the people and NDC will never do anything without consulting our stakeholders who are the people we intend to govern.

The Bible in Proverbs says Pride comes before destruction. And that exactly what we are witnessing. The end of Gabby and his uncle's Presidency is near hence their arrogance and insults to we the people who gave them power.

John Dramani Mahama I know will always consult the people he intends to serve for what they want him to do for them to add to the surprise he has for them.

Once again, the alternative could be empty today but could be filled for it to overflow in the next second how about the current which is Useless, in fact very useless?

When you are useless, you always think you are the best among the rest because the rest which are the majority will NEVER think like you because they are not USELESS.

Every good leader listens and picks a lot from his followers.

Gabby should know that a USELESS man always grows to become a stubborn fool but the alternative who is empty today can be filled with all the needed wisdom to overflow in the next second.

I remain a CITIZEN, not a SPECTATOR.
