Mahama, NDC desperately clinging on to straws while drowning

President John Dramani Mahama, his wife Lordina Mahama, Asiedu Nketiah, Kofi Adams, just to mention but a few of the NDC members, have lately run out of sensible electioneering campaign messages.

The ferociously blowing wind for change sweeping away everything in its path seems to have completely destroyed all the NDC messages which were of course, complete lies.

They are now without any sensible message for Ghanaians but their usual bullshitting propaganda.

President Mahama about three days ago said that when he visited Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, his “Yen ntie obiaa” buddy, at the Otumfuo’s Manhyia Palace in Kumasi, Otumfuo advised him to tell Ghanaians about his achievements to get them to vote to re-elect him for a further 4-year term in office as the President of Ghana.

What are his supposed infrastructural or socio-economic achievements that he has been advised to tell Ghanaians about to convince us to vote for him? Did he not know about the existence of such achievements until he was told by Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II?

Frankly, he has nothing credible to tell us or else, he wouldn’t wait for his friend to ask him to do so according to his own words as published in the newspapers. On the other hand, is he not wise enough to know that it is by telling Ghanaians his economic achievements that people can be persuaded to vote for him?

He can only convincingly tell Ghanaians about his attainment of distinction in orchestrating, perpetrating and perpetuating corruption, lawlessness, nepotism, cronyism and the practice of selective justice in Ghana. For this, I do agree with him but are they credible enough to convince discerning Ghanaians to give him another chance of a 4-year term in office to mismanage Ghana?

He has said, if he is given a second 4-year term, he will introduce and implement policies; put in place structures to curtail or curb corruption in Ghana. On this note, I agree perfectly well with Kwame A-Plus, that Ghanaian artist who says to him, “Moay3 late”. Check the underlying video link for his message for President Mahama as put into a song.

Mrs Lordina Mahama once said, her husband, H.E. John Dramani Mahama would do exactly what Mrs Hillary Clinton had planned to do for the Americans. She said this in the belief that Mrs Clinton who everyone thought to be the favourite was surely going to win the American presidential election hands down. However, when the unexpected happened to the dismay of many a citizen of the Western world, with Mrs Clinton losing the election to Mr Donald Trump, a completely unknown person in the political arena, Mrs Mahama has subsequently quickly changed her mouth. She now says her husband is doing exactly what President-elect Donald Trump has promised Americans –building infrastructures, construction of roads, hospitals, schools and creation of jobs for the people.

Folks, note how Mrs Lordina Mahama is a shameless opportunist by her two conflicting statements; what she said during the American election and what she is now saying after the election. See her as a person with two mouths and any person with two mouths is a liar according to an Akan saying.

President Mahama knows best and does best when it comes to practicing corruption of all sorts.

Asiedu Nketiah said, Nana Akufo Addo is “patapaa” (somebody who disregards laws and uses force to obtain whatever he wants) same as American presidential-candidate Donald Trump. Now that Donald Trump has won the American 8 November 2016 presidential election to the shocking of almost the entire world, what is Asiedu Nketiah going to say? Will he change his words and mouth same as Lordina Mahama has done? Can he now say that Donald Trump is a sociopath? No, he can’t.

Kofi Adams, Koku Anyidoho, and Asiedu Nketiah continually mock Nana Akufo Addo for being too old to be a President. Not only is Hillary Clinton his age group but also, Donald Trump. Donald Trump who is seventy has won the American election. Is age still a barrier to these nutters for one becoming the President of a country?

All their U-turns and desperate attempts to persuade Ghanaians to vote for them are like one clinging on to a straw when drowning. You may think the straw can save you from drowning but it can’t in a million times.

They are even worsening their case and should we vote for them on their U-turn messages, all of which are of course lies, then we are the biggest fools ever to live on the planet earth.

Help the wind to sweep away the rot from Ghana by carrying away President Mahama and his NDC government into the ocean of political wilderness.

President Mahama is going, going, going. He is be gone, swept away from the presidency on 7 December 2016. Amen!
