NPP on the Right Path – Keep it Up!

With patience, dedication and dynamism, the leadership of the NPP is unravelling the mystery surrounding the rigged Election 2012. They are meticulously using the “pink sheets” to prove their point. More grease to the elbows of adorable Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, alias “Dr Pink Sheets”, for proving in court through patience amid teasing and insults from the counsels for the respondents, how the Electoral Commission rigged the election in favour of then presidential-candidate John Dramani Mahama.

With patience, everything is possible. This is affirmed by God. He says in the scriptures, “Patience moves mountains”.

My deceased younger brother, Yaw Sarpong from Kumawu Woraso, to whom I dedicate this write-up once during his ranting and raving at one of our sisters said, “wo de abotare dwa aboa ntetea, wo hunu ne korona. Na nkakra nkakra yen nso ye bedi nkonim” laterally translates as, “with patience, one can dissect an ant and finds its heart. And gradually, gradually, we also shall succeed”. Among all my brothers, he was the one that I used to share secrets with and liked so much probably because he was a year or a few months younger than me. This is just by the way.

If Nana Akufo Addo had resorted to violence to proving or establishing that Election 2012 was rigged, he would never have gone that far. Even though the election was rigged, many would have castigated him for being warlike and damn opportunistic. The whole world would have blamed him for being power-seeking scoundrel and initiated moves to whisk him off to the International Criminal Court of Justice in Hague , Netherlands , accused of crime against humanity and or ethnic cleansing.

Is it not said in an Akan proverb that, "mmframa de huuhuu pe ade a onya?" It literally translates as, "The wind with all its intensity finds nothing when searching for anything". It will be blowing things all about as witnessed in the disastrous damages done by the various hurricanes in say, America .

However, with patience and fortitude, accommodating all the insults and mockeries spewed by the NDC and their agents and assigns, it is becoming clearer by each passing day how Dr Afari Gyan as Head of the Electoral Commission helped rigged the election for candidate " Ede bii keke".

Had Nana Akufo Addo not been deft, patient and accommodating but resorted to any "All die be die" mantra, the end result would have been doom and gloom for him and the NPP.


NPP faithful and all discerning Ghanaians are to believe in the revelation of God to Kofi Basoah as I keep repeating in almost all my publications. We are on the right path. Victory is just a stone-throw away, I can assure all Ghanaians.

I dedicate this article to the memory of my brother YAW SARPONG as aforementioned. Yaw, continue to rest in peace in the bosom of GOD. Amen.
