Nana Akufo Addo - Beware of Those Closest to You

The unnecessary humiliation, insults and defamation of character that Nana Akufo Addo suffers on daily basis come not only from his enemies, but also, from his close friends, I should think. The fact that our modern day “David” was not born corrupt, and has never in his lifetime practiced corruption, he has become an enemy both within his own NPP family, and among the NDC. For being clean and as white as snow in his public life; never taken anything that he is not legally entitled to, never involved in any act of embezzlement, Nana Akufo Addo has needlessly become an enemy in his own political camp.

The most painful thing in life is to see your friend, or a person you trust most, proceed on an intentional mission geared towards soiling your reputation just for the satisfaction or the attainment of their hidden mischievous agenda. All the bad things being said about him are not true. They are absolute lies intended to scupper his political ambition to be of honest service to his country and to the suffering people of Ghana.

God has ordained him a liberator to set the Ghanaian socio-politico-economic captives free. No matter the odds, the dangerous hurdles placed in his path to achieving his God-intended mission, he will succeed in the end. Look at the stories of the biblical Joseph and David. They both attained the heights and objectives purposed for them by God despite the numerous attempts by fellow human beings to ruin their lives. Will Nana Addo be any different from them? The answer is a BIG NO!

With the passage of time, those wolves in lamb skins outwardly portraying to the world as friends of Nana Addo, but are inwardly, plotting evil against him, shall be exposed.

Ghanaians are suffering. Therefore, the few that are enjoying under the current directionless NDC administration should please not seek to further obstruct God’s purpose for Ghanaians. God will surely perform a miracle in the life of Nana Addo to bring about the materialisation of His better intentions for Ghanaians in general.

I shall advise Nana Addo to remind himself of the story involving Julius Caesar and Brutus. Brutus was so close to Julius Caesar yet, he stabbed Caesar to death. Finally, I end with the saying, “keep your friends close and your enemies even closer”. This is my last message for those behind a smokescreen damaging the appointed one of God -“Ohinta dua akyire, obi nnhu wo a, Onyame ahu wo”.
