Nana Akufo-Addo Is Not Fit For The Presidency

I kept maintaining and will continue to maintain that, that man……. What is his name? That short man ………..Nana Akufo-Addo…… Yes Nana Akufo-Addo cannot and will not become the president of the republic of Ghana. Since the exit of former president Agyekum Kuffour, the NPP had known no internal peace under the flagbearership of Nana Akufo-Addo. The internal wrangling in the party had gone on for far too long and its high time sanity prevails in the rank and file of this party who calls themselves democrats before the cancer spreads nationwide. Any member or leading member of the party can at any point in time, open his/her mouth at any angle, in any corner of the country, any place in the world and start vomiting nonsense, throwing insults at each other, using unprintable words at each other. All these happening under the very nose of the flag bearer, Nana Akufo-Addo. My problem is, if you cannot clean your own house, how on earth can you clear a whole country? Nana Akufo-Addo, your house is dirty and stinking and even soiled with blood (death of Adam Mahama). You cannot tidy it up and you are in Germany meeting with the chancellor, for what? Are you the president of the republic of Ghana? Instead of you staying in the country and deal with the internal problems facing your party, you are rather parading yourself outside the country as if all is well in the party. Clearly, you are not fit for the presidency.
Personally, I don’t like Kennedy Agyepong because of some of his utterances and outbursts but I have come to the realization that, his actions are be justifiable considering what is going on in the party. The NPP claim to be full of technocrats, yet they bite hard at each other. The bitten has even gone beyond its limit resulting into killings (pouring of acid on a party chairman). A very shameful and senseless act of the highest order. I wonder what will next. Only God knows. This even goes to show that, the NPP is not a democratic party as it portrays. They do not understand the meaning of the word “Democracy”. Well, I am not surprised. I guess their definition of democracy is “All die be die” as stated by their flag bearer Nana Akufo-Addo himself. Therefore, shedding blood to win power is part of the game. My only prayer is that, the death of the party chairman, Adam Mahama will not degenerate into an ugly situation. The security agencies should be for any eventuality.
Nana Akufo-Addo must return home immediately to find lasting solutions to the chaos going on within the party. Like I said, I don’t foresee a bright future for my dear country Ghana under NPP with Nana Akufo-Addo as president.
Long live Ghana.
