Keep Trusting in God To Save Ghana From…

Ghana is precipitously on the verge of total collapse. This is neither a joke nor a doomsayer’s figment of imagination. It is a fact come about as a result of the apparent maladministration by President Mahama.

Honest prayers to God coupled with practical action taken in good faith will be able to save Ghana from the impending total economic annihilation. All signs indicate that President Mahama is piloting the socio-economic ship (Ghana) aground at such an alarming nautical speed with all aboard facing imminent death.

The President has a problem. He does not care about the collective interests of Ghanaians but all about his cronies. He does not want to become the father for all, but a father for a selected few from his tribe. He does not listen to the majority voice but his own and that of the few those surrounding him. He has formed a concrete wall of “yen ntie obiara” and “I will do what I want”, around him.

He should however, note that the country does not belong to him. The country is not his family or his personal property. Even though it is an inheritance from the late President Atta Mills, he cannot do whatever pleases him with it.

Let the whole nation go into fasting, supplications to God, and then take bold steps to reverse the obstinate course taken by the President. There is power in prayers and positive action.

Majority of Ghanaians have had enough of the corruption President Mahama has directly instituted to favour a small section of Ghanaians. He keeps on shuffling the same corrupt individuals in his government. These young men are not only corrupt but absolutely incompetent. For how long are Ghanaians going to cope with this situation when all indicators point to Ghana drawing closer to her grave?

Let us walk the talk. Talking alone without prayers for God’s intervention and physical action will take us nowhere. What does the President mean to tell us if he continues to appoint Alex Segbefia and his likes into government? No wonder birds of the same feathers flock together. I have not forgotten the roles played by Alex Segbefia in Carl Wilson’s car thievery at the ports and Alex Agbesi Woyome’s judgment debt payment saga. A Senior Crown Prosecutor in the UK indeed, oh Deputy Defence Minister Alex Segbefia!

God has heard our prayers and He will intervene to rescue Ghana from the hands of rogues at the appointed time! Keep on trusting in God for liberation from the modern day slavery President Mahama has visited upon Ghanaians. Amen.
