Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has no regard for Ghanaians and therefore doesn’t believe it is wrong to look us in the eye and lie to us.
Much as I respect and admire the man and his office as the flagbearer of the biggest opposition party, as well as a possible President in waiting, I must confess the office of the flagbearer of the NPP, has been so diminished by Nana Addo and his apparatchik, that it does not deserve the respect and recognition of any self-respecting Ghanaian.
At every given opportunity, Nana Addo, has been embarrassing the country and Ghanaians and insulting our intelligence, all in his desperation to win power by all means possible.
We have been forced to listen to the presidential candidate’s fables in the past several years, when he first put himself up in the late 90’s to contest for the flagbearership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), a party with a rich tradition and leaders, who wrote their names boldly in the annals of the country’s history .
Nana Addo, has upped the ante of embarrassment by lying to Ghanaians and making ridiculous promises, all in his desperate attempt to win the November 7, election.
Nana Addo, the NPP and its apparatchik, begun by making sure that anybody who dared question or express any dissent about the leadership qualities of Nana Addo, was suspended and chased out of the party. If this was not a desperate move, what is?
We have seen the heightened level of criss-crossing the country, including the Volta Region, where between the flagbearer and his running mate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, have been about four times, making promises and desperately trying to woo the people into changing the minds to vote for the NPP.
If this is not desperation, what is?
The series of imaginary allegations against the President, John Dramani Mahama and his administration that, he is presiding over a corrupt regime, this smear campaign being spearheaded with the help of some media houses and media personnel, who have thrown the ethics of their profession to the
dogs. If this smear campaign is not desperation, what is?
The so-called apostles of democracy and rule of law, invited some Serbians, as well as South Africans ostensibly to train their supporters in weapon handling, crowd control, and camped them at a secret location, all these was done against the laws of this country and when the gentlemen were arraigned before court and subsequently deported, they raised hell, citing rule of law, which they have first violated. If this was not a desperate move, what is?
I will reduce taxes, I will reduce import tariffs, all these reductions, will lead to a reduction in government revenue, yet Nana Addo is promising to build one factory in every district. If this is not desperation, what is?
Not desperate? Try this. In his desperation to win power, he is promising to build factory in the 261 Districts in the country. Nana Addo, is now engaged in donkomi, donkomi, buy one get one free policy of building factories.
The devil they say is in the detail, I remember very well when Nana Addo, was a quest on BBC Hardtalk programme, prior to the 2012 elections, and was asked to cost his audacious promise of free Senior High School, he could not, because it was only a promise to deceive Ghanaians into voting for him.
He has also started another campaign of a promise that when he is subjected to strict prove to provide details, he will be found wanting.
This happens when your opponents fail to acknowledge your efforts, but time is gradually unveiling before their very eyes and they are losing the ground, they resort to desperate tactics to hoodwink people into believing, they have anything better to offer.
President Mahama, has really raised the bar and Nana Addo, is getting jittery.
Nana Addo, is desperately desperate and he shouldn’t deny that. The presidency is not the birthright of anybody, the fact your parents or friends whispered in your ears that, you will be president, does not mean, it shall come to pass.
Ghanaians should be mindful of desperate politicians, who would rather the country disintegrate than them losing the paraphernalia of office.
What was our crime? Well-meaning Ghanaians, made a mistake by asking the NPP, to quit criticizing and tell us their vision for the country and now we have been promised more than we bargained for.
Until this announcement of a phantom promise, all the NPP, especially it running mate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has done is to engage in shadow boxing, when the government takes a decision, the NPP, will counter, with a promise to do otherwise. When trainee nurses and teachers allowances were withdrawn, the NPP, promised to bring it back.
I don’t blame Nana Addo and the NPP, because they couldn’t have promised anything less, considering the number of factories springing up in the country.
The President, John Dramani Mahama, is working to put Ghana on a global stage at a reasonable pace and Ghanaians, like what he is doing.
