Open Letter to President Mahama

Dear Mr President,
I feel the spirit of God upon me to bring the following message to your attention.
My intuition directs me to tell you what you need to know and hear, but not what you
would want to hear.

Following from the above brief bold statement of gospel truth, you are asked to
cogitate about the recent developments in the country. It is not for nothing that
such things are happening in astonishing sequence in the way they do.

Not long ago, Asantehene was alleged on online and the airwaves to have assisted you
to bribe some Supreme Court judges to decide Election 2012 petition in your favour.
Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II debunked the allegation by cursing himself invoking
the spirits of the departed souls, the power of the lesser gods and the spirit of
the Golden Stool to clear his name. He was compelled by the magnitude of the
accusation and how his own Ashanti subjects were heaping condemnatory insults on him
to go that length to exonerate himself from any blameable involvement as a conduit
in bribing the Supreme Court judges. I am not sure he will ever be able to recover
from the damage the accusation has done to his reputation. His integrity is dented
all because of you.
Now, your own Deputy Communications Minister, Victoria Hammah, has asserted on
recorded tapes how your Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Nana
Oye Lithur, played an instrumental, but an illegal role that influenced the Supreme
Court judges to decide the Election 2012 case in your favour.

Most Ghanaians are suffering because of the unbearable economic and financial
hardships your administration through untested myopic policies has brought to loom
upon them.

You have been presiding over the most corrupt, incompetent and clueless government
ever known in the annals of Ghana politics. Your government since 2009 has been
immensely involved in dubious acts unhealthy for the socio-politico-economic
advancement of Ghana.

You have unfortunately driven the vehicular Ghana to the precipice of
socio-politico-economic doom and it is just about to tip over. This has to do with
how you have mismanaged and continue to mismanage the finances of Ghana through
unbridled official corruption. You are corrupt. Your government and NDC party are
The spirit upon me has directed me to inform you that you and your party colluded
with Alfred Agbesi Woyome to dubiously avail himself of GHC51.2 Million judgment
debt payment. All the judgment debt payments that your Atta Mills/Mahama and
Mahama/Arthur-Ammisah governments have courageously enthusiastically been executing
are simply ganged up "create, loot and share" ploys to enrich yourselves and your

You are directed to look yourself in God’s spiritual mirror, examine yourself to see
if you were really appointed by Him to govern Ghana. You have usurped the winning
verdict from the God’s appointed one, Nana Akufo Addo Dankwah, by the help of Dr
Kwadwo Afari Gyan and Supreme Court Justice Atuguba.

The wailing supplications by Ghanaians to God on their unprecedented suffering under
your illegal administration will be a curse upon your head, your family and your
accomplices onto perpetuity, so my intuition tells.

Refrain, and run away, from corruption. Relinquish the stolen throne. Confess your
crimes against Ghana, Nana Akufo Addo and Ghanaians, to God in private and to
Ghanaians in public. Until then, you SHALL never know peace and your integrity shall
continue to suffer. Your credibility shall nosedive until your name becomes a taboo
among your own people and yourself a curse unto the womb that conceived you.

Failing to hear the warning words as stated above, and do as directed, the wrath of
God will descend upon you in a manner that any ear that hears it will tingle.

Finally, the spirit has directed me to reframe the following song:

By and by when the morning comes
All the Saints of God are gathered home
We will tell the story how we overcame
We will understand it better by and by
By and by when the day of reckoning comes
All the sins of Mahama will be read
We will see how wicked he had been
Ghanaians will understand it better why he was denounced

Do ignore the directives of the spirit as hereby written at your own peril if you so
choose to be a doubting Thomas. Mind you,"Obstinacy is the cause of the horns of the
hornbill". Good name is better than riches but you have ubfortunately sacrificed
your good name not only for riches, but for stinking corruption.

The ball is now in your court,oh Dear Mr President.

Yours truly,

Rockson Adofo (Thursday, 14 November 2013)
