Is Nana Akufo Addo & NPP indeed “patapaa?”

There they go again! The rented agents of NDC are splashing it everywhere in the media, alleging that Nana Akufo Addo, the Ghana President-in-waiting, according as designated by God Almighty, is “patapaa”.

What is meant by “patapaa”, the reading public may want to know? “Patapaa” is a Ghanaian Akan parlance which means a person who uses force to have their way in everything regardless of how absurd or genuine their behaviour may be seen by many a Ghanaian.

Has Nana Addo been using any force to have his wishes obtained? Has Nana Addo ever used force to acquire anything? Has Nana Addo ever resorted to any acts of intimidation to bulldoze his way through to the acquisition of his undoubtedly well-established social, political and economic successes?

If I were asked any of the above posed questions, my answer will be a BIG NO!

Nana Akufo Addo, the modern day reminiscent of the Joseph or David of the ancient biblical times has never been, is not, and shall never be, “patapaa”. This allegation levelled against him is just the figment of the warped imagination of his political NDC rivals who as shameless, incompetent, corrupt and lawless as they are, and almost rejected by the Ghanaian public, seek shelter in such hopeless and tactically divisionary accusations.

Nana Akufo Addo as a person I know very well is only INCORRUPTIBLE, DYNAMIC, DEDICATED, HONEST and in sum, a MAN OF INTEGRITY who is unrivalled in the political history of Ghana.

Is there anyone in the modern day political history of Ghana who can challenge or surpass the incorruptibility of Nana Akufo Addo, a person who makes discerning Ghanaians proud at all times? Any challenger? No challenger!
The NDC are scared that the anger of the public has turned against them with the wrath of God looming ominously upon them to KICK them OUT of power come 7th November 2016 hence trying hard to court the public sympathy by their preposterous accusation of “patapaaism” levelled against Nana Akufo Addo and the NPP.

I call on all wise Ghanaians, I call on all the suffering ordinary Ghanaians regardless of their political affiliations, I call on all Ghanaians who wish best for Ghana and themselves, to not only debunk the unfounded allegation of “patapaaism” levelled against Nana Addo but also, to rally solidly behind him, and vote for him to become the President of Ghana come the end of election 2016.

Ghanaians, please do not allow NDC to fool you with their propaganda where Baba Jamal, one of their Government Deputy Ministers, advised the NDC faithful to fool Ghanaians by going public saying, quote unquote, “if President Mills gives you a sheep, tell the public it is a bull (cow), if he gives you a fowl, say it is a sheep and if he gives you an old banger, say it is a brand new 4 x 4 car”

By their propaganda and audacious thievery, they have ruined Ghana. Instead of putting up their hand to say sorry we have failed Ghanaians, they are still taking us for granted by rather trying to tarnish the reputation of Nana Addo in order to get the Ghanaian populace to their side to continue to inflict further socio-economic damage to the nation and to the good people of Ghana.

Shame on these NDC agents and assigns who have let their stomach go before them. They listen to the hunger pangs of their stomach but not to the wise dictations of their brains.

All these actions of theirs is what a friend always says as, “a pang of jealousy is doing their head in hence they are behaving like irrational beings”
