Winning Elections is About Numbers So NPP…

Be very careful about your current propensity to sack or suspend people from their positions or from the party. This is the advice, suggestion, or the opinion as put forward by some people who seem to care about NPP and their chances of winning election 2016 to liberate Ghanaians from their current shackles of slavery wrapped around their wrists and ankles by the NDC government and party.

However, Rockson Adofo, that gentleman or old man from Kumawu/Asiampa who is oozing with wisdom and intelligence either begs to differ, or to add something to what others have already suggested or advised as found above.

Rockson opines that even though winning elections is about numbers, thus, garnering the majority of votes cast as said by the others, those suspended were rather fighting against NPP from winning the upcoming election 2016. They were purely saboteurs judging from their actions and utterances. By being such open saboteurs, were they not rather working to get more people to vote for the NDC instead of NPP?

They were on a mission to see to the defeat of, instead of the victory of, NPP, at elections 2016. That was obvious, concluding from their vividly displayed actions and unrestrained livid utterances. It is only a person who cringes at the sight of the truth that will not acknowledge the fact that Paul Afoko, Kwabena Agyepong and Sammy Crabbe were working against the interests of NPP and the suffering Ghanaian masses.

Anyway, let me draw an analogy using the understanding of the human anatomy to support my claim that it was rather better for suspending the mentioned individuals than to have left them in their posts to commit further grievous harm to the party and the discerning, although, suffering Ghanaians masses.

Every organ in the human body has a vital role to play in making the body whole and sane. They all work together to make the body complete. However, if a part of an organ is infected with a disease, or say, some of the human cells are infected with cancer, what do the Medical doctors do?

First, they try to heal the affected body of the disease. If their attempts fail but the disease is on progression, with the possibility of spreading across that entire organ or limb to infect the whole human body with the ultimate result of death to the person, what do the doctors do?


Do the doctors not remove that affected part of the organ to save the rest of the organ or body from deadly infection to prevent the person from dying?

For example, when one's arm or leg is affected with gangrene (the decay of a part of a person's body because the blood has stopped flowing there) do doctors not have to amputate his leg because gangrene has set in? Do they leave the decay to continue to infect the entire body leading to the eventual death of the person? No!

Therefore, as it is with the amputation of a leg due to infection with gangrene, so shall it be with all those intentionally doing things on the sly to cause the defeat of NPP to aggravate the economic or financial sufferings of Ghanaians under President Mahama's corrupt and incompetent administration.

Does the bible not admonish us same as I have suggested with the suspension of Messrs Paul Afoko, Kwabena Agyepong and Sammy Crabbe, thus, Matthew 5:30 or Mark 9:43- "And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell?"

Subsequently, the suspension of the mentioned persons from their posts but not from the party is worthwhile, if not a step in the right direction.

Their suspension is in no way a gagging process in operation in NPP as is otherwise spuriously being bandied around by some enemies of progress within and outside NPP, especially from the NDC.

I promised to do any damage control that may arise in the wake of the much-talked about suspensions. Drawing from my never ending but overflowing abundance of wisdom, I shall have answers to any questions raised about the suspensions of the clearly seen saboteurs named above.
