"Third Time Lucky" – Nana Akufo Addo all the Way in 2016!

?? ?By the way, have you ever heard the old wise saying, "Obosom ani wo ho yi, eye a yebo no mmprensa". It literally reaffirms what in English is "third time lucky". Any third attempt made on achieving any particularly envisaged thing does often succeed. In essence, it means, perseverance conquers difficulties or determination backed by action is the key to success. ? ?Those of us aspiring to obtain decent standard of living for Ghanaians through a decent and a more responsible President, are on our knees begging Nana Akufo Addo to lead the NPP as its flag bearer again. When he contests the NPP flag bearer slot, he will win it hands down, God willing. He will also win the 2016 presidential election as he always does but this time around, nobody, with emphasis on nobody, will be able to rob him of the winning crown. Atuguba will not even rear his ugly head anywhere near Nana Akufo Addo when he is carried shoulder high and declared the President of Ghana.?? It really hurts me to hear any true member of NPP say, "we have to elect a winnable candidate as flag bearer so that we do not suffer defeat in 2016 elections as did in 2008 and 2012". How can a supporter or a member of NPP not know that Nana Akufo Addo clearly won at least Election 2012 but was robbed of the winning verdict by both Dr Kwadwo Afari Gyan of the Electoral Commission and William Atuguba of the Ghana Supreme Court? If any member of NPP looks forward to having a winnable candidate, he or she should not look beyond Nana Akufo Addo, with Dr Bawumia still his running mate. ?Whoever had the chance to follow the real-time recording of the Supreme Court proceedings on Election 2012 will bear me out that the petitioners were clearly the winners of Election 2012. Dr Afari Gyan and William Atuguba are suffering and will continue to suffer for not declaring the election results in favour of the true winner (Nana Akufo Addo), but rather in favour of the loser (John Mahama). God is not a liar. Nobody can make him a liar and goes scot free. Atuguba tried to, and he has lost his respect. He has incurred the anger of the people through insults. He is yet to incur the wrath of God which could be anything unless he seeks the face of God and His forgiveness of sins.? ? For the attention of my readers, Nana Akufo Addo has been given the name of DAVID. He was given this name by those of us in London during the "Nana Addo Ladies Club" two year anniversary celebration on 25 October 2013, of which Nana Addo and wife were the Special Guests of Honour. The name is symbolic and portends victory that nobody can resist. He will go into Election 2016 as strong in God as the biblical David to defeat the Philistine Goliath in which, case it is John Mahama or whoever the NDC presents as their flag bearer in 2016.

??All that the NPP must do is to continue to rely on God, shed their gentility, cease upholding the Electoral laws to the spirit and letter, and descend into gutter politics. Atuguba, Akoto-Bamfo, Baffoe-Bonnie, Adinyirah and Gbagdegbe have by their corrupted verdict intimated that public elections are won by whatever foul means one can possibly employ. Isn’t it? ? ?I DON’T CARE IF YOU HATE ME BUT IT MUST BE FOR A GOOD REASON.

??I invite all Ghanaians to support my crusade to crush official corruption and election riggings in Ghana. I know that many are those that detest my frankness and boldness to call a spade a spade. However, my guts tell me I am on the right path regardless of any negative perceptions about me by the NDC or the crooks that are pillaging Mother Ghana. ??I end this write-up with an advice to Ghanaians to see Nana Akufo Addo in the following perspective - "In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his course succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot"------Mark Twain. Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia said, "Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph."

??Nana Akufo Addo will not sit down to become a victim of what the wise Emperor said, hence always coming forward to help Ghanaians as and when the occasion arise. Therefore, fellow Ghanaians, to be able to extricate ourselves from the shackle of slavery John Mahama and the NDC have put around our legs, arms and neck, we need to rally solidly behind Nana Akufo Addo and Dr Bawumia all of the time.

?"Nanaana. Nana Sure"!
