Merry Christmas to President-elect Nana Akufo Addo

It is only appropriate to wish Nana Akufo Addo, the most
> incorruptible but sadly equally the most maliciously
> maltreated or mocked politician in the annals of Ghana’s
> politics, a meritorious seasonal greetings at this time of
> the year.
>
> His enemies and the enemies of Ghana plotted, colluded and
> desired to see his defeat at every election to permanently
> deny him the ascension to Ghana’s presidency. However, as
> man proposes, God disposes.
>
> All the evil plans and intents by his political rivals have
> been made nonsense by the Good Almighty God that he
> continually trusts in and surrounds himself and his
> political career wholeheartedly.
>
> It is therefore imperative upon me to wish him not only a
> Merry Christmas but also, a Successful New Year with the
> wisdom of biblical King Solomon, the fear and love of God of
> King David and the longevity of Methuselah.
>
> The incoming President must still let the Good God that he
> worships and believes in to guide him throughout his
> presidency. He has to be firm, fair and friendly. He should

> course without interfering with it with the aim of twisting
> it in favour of whomever as seen to be done by the
> outing-President Mahama and his NDC-led government hence the
> practice of selective justice becoming the order of the day
> in Ghana.

> Finally, be it reiterated to President-elect Nana Akufo Addo

> former or outgoing Presidents. NOBOBY means no person.
