Why are some Ghanaians getting Edgy

about the NPP's petition to the Supreme Court?

When at all will Ghanaians cease gracing evil by their preposterous nonchalance and twofaced attitudes? These negative behaviours culminating in "enye hwe fa ma Nyame" (leave it to Providence) are disastrous to the socio-politico-economic emancipation of Ghana. When again will Ghanaians be able to build strong institutions instead of strong, wicked and corrupt persons if we are not permanently to stall in our deplorably stinking behaviours of often siding with evil at any least opportunity?

There is abundant evidence at the NPP camp to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the Electoral Commission connived with the NDC to rig the 2012 presidential and parliamentary elections for John Mahama and the NDC. The NPP, as champions of the rule of law, upholders and defenders of human rights as they have always been, are resolutely determined to pursue the case in court, rather than through rampage.

The fact that the NPP did not go down the path of Rwanda, Kenya or Zimbabwe, in pursuing their legitimate cause of ensuring the absolute truth unravels regarding Election 2012, some Tom, Dick and Harry are emerging from the woodwork to talk rubbish. They are saying, the NPP's allegations of election malpractices, irregularities and complete fraud aimed at tilting the balance in favour of John Mahama and other NDC parliamentary candidates are without credibility.

All those jumping into such hasty and baseless conclusion are the very Ghanaians without the love of the nation at heart. They never aspire to achieve anything reasonable for Ghana and Africa. They are the very ones who forever love to see Africa and Ghana mired in hopelessness, kowtowing to our superior White contemporaries and always running to them with bow in hand begging for alms. We always look up to them to save ours from our self-made woes as irresponsible as we often are.

I want our institutions to work and be strong. The only way to do that is to stop siding with the perpetrators of crime. The day that our incumbent African leaders including the NDC rogues get to know that they can no longer govern on rigged elections, they will stop being the known obnoxious thieves. They will realise that the courts will prosecute and incarcerate them so they act contrary to laid down rules and regulations. Blatant corruption that retards the progress of Ghana and Africa will be the thing of the past if we allow our institutions to work, as they should.

Nana Akuffo-Addo, Dr. Bawumia and Obetsebi Lamptey are right in challenging the Election 2012 results declared by Kwadwo Afari-Gyan in favour of John Mahama and the NDC. I advise them and all those discerning Ghanaians including myself to remain resolute in pursuing justice. Never listen to the paid agents who are coming out every now and then with silly statements not only to discourage the NPP and those avid of seeing justice done but also, to turn the very supporters of the NPP against their leadership.

I am extremely happy to have read that the NPP are also demanding the Electoral Commissioner, Kwadwo Afari-Gyan, to provide them with all the pink sheets covering election 2012 same as suggested by my White legal minds.

I refer my readers and Ghanaians to my article published on Ghanaweb, Modernghana.com and Spyghana.com on Sunday, 27 January 2013 titled "Supreme Court to determine if Nana Akuffo-Addo is Obliged to release further details to John Mahama & Kwadwo Afari-Gyan before……..?", to ascertain for themselves how intelligent the White legal minds are. According to the mentioned legal minds, "a fair exchange is never a robbery".

Kwadwo Afari-Gyan and John Mahama were thinking they are cleverer enough to outsmart Nana Akuffo-Addo by requesting from him detailed and better clarifications on all the alleged 4,709 polling stations where the irregularities were supposed to have taken place. I will not indulge in discussing this issue as I have already dealt with it in the mentioned previous write-up.

I will by this write-up, advise all those lividly castigating Nana Akuffo-Addo to drop the court case to allow John Mahama sail smoothly on rigged elections through the land of thievery, incompetence, and lawlessness, to plunge Ghana in an abyss, to think twice. They should reason as intelligent human beings but not as inhibited persons. Are they also enjoying from the stolen gold that has found itself in Turkey or Iran? I hate to see Ghana abounding in "educated illiterates" of the type teasing NPP but happy about the likes of Alfred Agbesi Woyome, the swindler of the century.
