The Praise Singing In Our Politics Is Too Much

Mahama   Prez Nana Akufo Addo

Sometimes listening to political actors and one begins to wonder, whether our leaders are gods, who do no wrong, in fact there are not capable of being wrong.

This phenomenon is limited to one political party, it cuts across all the parties, in simple terms, our leaders are infallible.

Speaking truth to power is a crime in this country, especially if that power belong to a political party that, one belongs to.

It is only in Africa that our leaders can walk on water. A leader comes to power with a good intention to make a difference, we praise and hail them to such an extent that, they forget that, they are human.

Listening to supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party and one begins to wonder, whether the church or the mosque makes any impact in our lives, because we revere our leaders than God.

Yesterday it was John Dramani Mahama, who was told by the sycophants that, he was the best thing to ever happen to this country. He was God sent to rescue the country, his development agenda surpasses that of all the presidents we have had since 1956.

Today, it is the turn of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, twenty months in office, and he is already the messiah, we have been waiting for.

He is now the alpha and omega, the repository of knowledge and wisdom, he does no wrong, he is God sent, what he has achieved in this short period and he is already a god on earth.

We need to begin to see our leaders, as who they are. I believe that, leaders don’t emerge by accident, they come along at the time they are needed.

God does not make mistake, he will not impose anybody on a group of people, unless he wills. Throughout history, leaders made their entrance at the time their countries needed the sort of leaders, with their temperament.

Nelson Mandela, became the leader of post apartheid South Africa, because the country at that time needed healing and reconciliation. If he had succeeded in leading the country at the time he sets out during the early stages of the African National Congress (ANC) when they were fighting the Apartheid regime, imagine the chaos that could have been visited on the country. This was a youngman, who could not see any reason other than the liberation of his country, God decided to put the country first, by letting him go through prison to prepare him for the opportune time.

So no leader is more special than the other, all of them are God sent, what we can do is to measure their performance as against promises they made.

There are so many frustrated political hustlers who have turned themselves into internet rats and professional pay-me-I-write-and-defend-you fraudsters.

We need to be able to respect our leaders, praise them, where it is due, but most importantly, we have to accept that, they are human and so as it is said, man proposes, God disposes.

No leader, has come to power with the intention of running the country aground. They all come and want live a legacy for the next generation.

They work within the resources available, the money they use is ours, so the hypocrisy of raising them above what they are, is the reason why this country, will remain a third world country.

I have been reading about this drama online and it is totally uncalled for. It is ridiculous, shameful and at best, pathetic.

President Akufo-Addo, has his short-coming, we can give him 50 years to govern and he can still not fulfill all that, he has set out to achieve.

We are a religious people, but when it comes to politics, we put our stomachs first. All those who have turned themselves into choir boys, shouting the names of our leaders and praising them to high heavens, only do that, because of the spoils of power.

Young men and women, who are energetic, vibrant and full of zeal, would rather engage in praise singing, rather than get some work to do.

Corruption, can never depart us, because as the rich and well-to-d o, are stealing, the young guys, who are out of school and have no work experience, are rewarded by appointments, when ther party comes to power.

They will adopt the strategy of calling the president god, and whiles the president is basking in that praise, they take the opportunity to steal.

I wake up every morning tune into a radio station and I am saddened that, we have elders in this country, sometimes the elderly are not left out of the praise singing. Our leaders, govern with impunity, because they have a carte blanche to do as they wish.

Those who must call them to order, are afraid of losing whatever is coming to them.
