Supreme Court to Do Mahama the Biggest Favour

Supreme Court to Do President Mahama the Biggest Favour

? President John Mahama is inextricably trapped in a cobweb of indecisions and problems. He cannot find his "economic and financial" feet at the presidency. Like a needle, he is lost in a haystack.

? He is confused, wandering and groping at the presidency like one of the confused rivers meandering in the Amazon forest or a sight-challenged person feeling his way through a path dotted with obstructions. No discerning Ghanaian can at the moment make heads or tails of President Mahama.

? Like say, America gone to war in Vietnam, Iraq or Afghanistan and finds the war difficult to win, she always prays for an interventional face-saving mediation of some sort to help her get out of the country honourably. Similarly, President Mahama at the presidency is like a square peg wobbling in a round hole without wherewithal to get out. He needs somebody to intervene on his behalf to assist him exit the presidency honourably. The presidential load is heavier for him to carry. He thought it was that simple – "Ede bii keke" but he now finds there is more to it.

? As uneasy lies the head that wears the crown so is uneasy lies the head that steals elections.

? It is only the Supreme Court that can save President Mahama from further shame and total confusion by giving a verdict that reflects nothing but the absolute truth based on the credibility of the documentary and the cross-examination evidences made available to the Court. If they do, President Mahama will honourably be shown the exit because he did not win the elections but they were rigged in his favour by Dr Afari Gyan and his outfit, the Electoral Commission.

? Would the Supreme Court please do John Mahama that big favour? He is jinxed! Isn’t he?
