N.D.C must rediscover itself through Martin Amidu!

Ladies and gentlemen, just about 3 or so months into Mills administration we had a revealing YouTube video recorded at Marriot Marquis Hotel in New York.

And this video, even though quite insignificant in the large scope of the media landscape, nevertheless judging from its political and historical value, is equivalent to nuclear bomb explosion without the physical annihilation.

It was Hannah Tetteh telling NDC faithful that Mills Government was not in office to embark on a witch-hunt.

Why she had to come to the diaspora to announce that, we did not know.

Then the uneasiness crept in, the tension continued to mount between the disciples of accountability/probity and a new NDC clearly resolved to chart a new direction. The so-called new NDC.

We wondered why NDC was not winning any of its high profile cases and why there was no vigorous pursuit of those it could easily have won.

All this while JJ was being actively pushed out of the party he single-handedly founded.

Then, about 2 years later, JJ explodes in Kumasi to put a stamp on what was happening

JJ IN KUMASI SAID THERE WAS A CULTURE OF SCRATCH MY BACK AND I'LL SCRATCH YOURS IN GHANA THE RAMIFICATIIONS OF WHICH WOULD BE UGLY!!!!!

That was when NDC begun losing its moral high ground. That was when NDC lost its bargaining chip. That was when NDC lost its soul. That was when NDC lost its power. That was NDC's suicidal plunge!!

Nana lost the 2008 election because of perceived massive corruption in Kuffour's NPP. In politics perception is reality.

But NDC decided to chart a different course!!!

Ladies and gentlemen, there is virtue in upholding the principles upon which you were born and developed!!

You cannot be somebody else.

You can only be yourself!! Be proud of who you are!!

NDC is creature of June 4th. For the last several years, tell me how many high level NDC officials celebrated the entity that gave birth to their party? An abomination!!

All of a sudden Hannah Tetteh's video was making sense....aha. So that was what it was all about.

But NDC committed a fatal gaffe!!

NDC MAY SCRATCH NPP'S BACK BUT NPP WILL NEVER SCRATCH NDC'S BACK!!!

You see how NPP element from all over the horizon are loudly calling for NDC heads in the judgment debt saga when both parties are explicitly and implicitly implicated in the matter?

As if NDCs are the only culprits!

Left to NPP alone, NDC would be proscribed from politics, Banned. Any other party they would tolerate but will never, ever tolerate N.D.C! Why? Why does N.P.P hate N.D.C so much? Why the hatred?

BECAUSE THE SPIRIT OF JJ HOVERS EETERNALLY OVER NDC!!! It is why so far as NDC exists NPP will eternally be uneasy and uncomfortable!!!!

And JJ is only one person NPP eternally fears!! The poodle tag was designed for that and it worked perfectly!!

Now after NDC has seriously corrupted itself and lost its moral mojo, NPP, playing its old tricks as it always does, is looking to finish them off.

But all is not lost!! NDC can bounce back!! If it returns to its core values!!! Anything else will complete the suicide plunge!!

If NDC will recover and rediscover itself IT WOULD BE THROUGH ITS UNTAINTED POWERFUL FOUNDER INSPIRING THE LIKES OF AMIDU TO COUTRAGEOUSLY RECLAIM THE TENETS UPON WHICH IT WAS FOUNDED!!

Without inspiration there is no courage.

Life, devoid of inspiration, becomes meaningless.

But thank God JJ is our inspiration!!! Long live J.J Long live Martin Amidu, the foremost citizen vigilante! kpakpogh@yahoo.com 0243370764
