Nana Akufo Addo accused of bussing supporters to Volta Region

The NDC are funny! Whatever Nana Akufo does or does not, to the NDC, he has become the proverbial victim of “damned if you do and damned if you don’t”

When I listen to Kofi Adams, the National Organiser for NDC, make submissions or answer questions put to him by radio presenters, I begin to question his integrity. He tells lies. He thinks Ghanaians are still stupid to buy his lies and then vote to maintain NDC in power come November 7, 2016.

Recently, he has been making joke of Nana Akufo Addo’s tour of the Volta region. He has been saying Nana Akufo Addo bussed people from across the country to attend his rally tours of the Volta region.

To Kofi Adams, Quashiga and other members of the NDC, the nation would not have witnessed the teeming spectators that appeared at all the rallies organised by Nana Akufo Addo during his four-day tour of the Volta region, if he had not bussed his supporters from other regions to the Volta region.

I see the views as expressed by these people as not only bordering on propaganda but also, amount to insanity and the underrating of the intelligence of the people of the Volta region.

They think as the Volta region is presumed to be their World Bank, where they can draw on the 100% support of the people almost all of the time to fraudulently win elections, the Voltarians will forever remain their lapdogs. No, they won’t!

The Voltarians in their majority are suffering the repercussions of the poor management of the country and the economy by President Mahama and his NDC government. The Voltarians, I should think, have become victims to the killer hikes in electricity bills churned out by the so-called “Usain Bolt” pre-paid electric meters, same as any other Ghanaian from the other regions.

Unless the people from the Volta region have been assigned special electric meters for their special status as coming from the NDC’s World Bank, hence paying less bills than their compatriots from elsewhere, they must be peeved about the general exorbitant utility bills.

Since they are not exempt as far as the poor administration of the country by NDC with its concomitant negative effects goes, the Voltarians are feeling the unbearable heat hence they will attend any rallies in their land organised by Nana Akufo Addo, the modern day David or Joseph of the biblical times.

They are equally looking forward to having a redeemer who will come to set the whole nation free from the shackles of slavery and poverty wrought around their ankles, wrists and waists, like any other Ghanaian from the other regions.

Again, Kofi Adams and his bunch of liars, have same allegations to level against Nana Akufo Addo when he went to the Northern region.

When one critically analyses the views of Kofi Adams and the other corrupt NDC faithful, they have clearly underrated the intelligence of the people of the Volta, Northern, Upper West and Upper East regions. They would have them remain ignorant to continue to vote for them without giving them anything back. They will want to always exploit them, feeding them with lies of say, NPP do not like you; NPP will not help you; NPP look down on you, etc. With these lies, they hope to get them angry at NPP. By getting annoyed with NPP, they think the Voltarians will continue to vote NDC although they are suffering the worst form of standard of living, brought to bear ominously on them by the mismanagement of the affairs of the nation by President Mahama and his NDC government.

Again, some NDC supporters from the Volta region who have their friends and relatives in parliament or government are said to be alleging that Nana Akufo Addo’s tour of the Volta region is too little too late. According to them, his tour cannot change the mentality of the Voltarians from not voting NDC. The Voltarians as it is, have made up their mind already so Nana’s visit to, or tour of, the region, is meaningless because it cannot change the mind of even a single person.

I throw a challenge to those holding on to that opinion. They should not continue to fool the Voltarians with lies and fabrications in the hope of having them to vote for NDC all of the time. The Voltarians have had enough of the NDC’s lies and this time round, they will vote to effect a positive change in their lives.

They will join the TRAIN FOR CHANGE in order to see the better days that God has prepared for them under the government of Nana Akufo Addo. They will not continue to be slaves of conscious under NDC for good. They will no longer remain the proverbial World Bank of the NDC, allowing a few opportunists amongst them to enjoy whilst they in their majority remain extremely poor and slaves to the NDC propaganda.

It is never true that it is too late for NPP to make inroads into the hearts and minds of my dear Voltarians to make them vote for Nana Akufo Addo to bring collective prosperity to Ghanaians.

Please Ghanaians, especially the Voltarians and the Northerners, do not be deceived by the NDC’s mastery of lies. They want us to stay poor by re-electing them come 7th November 2016. Do we as electorates want to remain poorer under the NDC government? I don’t want to, and I hope you have the same views and feelings not to want to remain poor. If that is your intention, then please vote out NDC come election 2016.

MY HONEST CAMPAINGN TO BOOT OUT NDC FROM POWER USING THUMBS BUT NOT GUNS STARTS TODAY, WEDNESDAY 25TH MAY 2016. THEREFORE, I INVITE ALL GHANAIANS IRRESPECTIVE OF YOUR POLITICAL AFFILIATIONS TO JOIN MY JUGGERNAUT TRAIN.

Say, CHANGE IS COMING!

CHANGE IS COMING to better our collective conditions of living under the government of Nana Akufo Addo.
