Stop this Nonsense of advocating for peace

based on "Fa ma Nyame" on the alleged Election 2012 fraud by...

Until our political leaders, opinion leaders, peace advocates, traditional leaders and all those Ghanaians fervently ascribing to "Fa ma Nyame" type of peaceful solutions cease their deplorable acts, they will have to contend with the people’s fiery anger.

Ghana is in reality stagnating if not retrogressing in terms of purposeful socio-economic advancement principally due to the absence or the dearth of strong institutions. All our institutions have been weakened by own ridiculous tendencies to leave everything to Providence. Where the law, which normally is an ass and is not a respecter of persons should take its effective course, our negative attitudinal behaviours set brakes to it. With the brakes of our nonsensical "Fa ma Nyame" on or applied, how do we move forward as a people and a nation?

I am highly personally annoyed at the disgusting attitudes and stance assumed by certain purported peace advocates on the year 2012 election fraud clearly executed on Ghanaians by Mr Kwadwo Afari-Gyan in favour of the John Dramani Mahama/Amissah-Arthur-led NDC government. Instead of ensuring investigations are conducted into the allegations of fraud and election malpractices culminating in the wrongful declaration of victory for John Mahama, they are rather chastising the NPP for seeking redress in court. How unintelligent, I suppose, such Nana Akuffo-Addo and NPP bashers are.

How do we advance as a nation and a people with such characters without hard balls to tell the truth regardless the bitterness of the consequences hovering around? It says, "It hurts to tell the truth but in the end, it brings comfort". Why cannot Ghanaians tell the truth but always prefer to hide behind the smokescreen of "Fa ma Nyame" type of peace? It is only cowardly selfish people without vision that always advocate for "nye hwee fa ma Nyame" solutions to arisen problems.

I will entreat all aggrieved Ghanaians and the NPP faithful not to relent on their fight to seek justice in the Supreme Court over the 2012 election results. John Mahama and the NDC know that Kwadwo Afari-Gyan know rigged the elections for them. May the good Almighty God bare their committed evilness in public for all eyes to see and witness. The evil that men do leaves after them. Mahama and his bunch of corrupt NDC brigade will be exposed sooner.

Arise, the good people of Ghana, to demand first for justice, and then peace which, comes as a bonus. No more exhibitions of cowardice, nonsense and biases will be tolerated by discerning Ghanaians from the peace advocates who rather hate justice. We need nothing but the absolute truth.

I will be writing about my observations while in Ghana weeks before, during and just after the December 7, 2012 presidential and parliamentary elections. Stay tuned for more info from me.
