Beware all ye Peace Counsellors

Beware all ye Peace Counsellors who go out late in Pyjama to....

I have a message for all hypocrite Ghanaian Peace Counsellors who have strong aversion for JUSTICE. It was not long ago that a Ghanaian Peace Counsellor is asserted to have rushed to a radio station in a pyjama to put out a warning.

He warned Ghanaians against the untimely unofficial declaration of victory by the Secretary of NPP, Kwadwo Afriyie, aka Sir John, for Nana Akuffo-Addo, ahead of the Electoral Commissioner, Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan’s official declaration that went to John Dramani Mahama. He castigated Sir John for being irresponsibly dangerous; whose actions could easily plunge Ghana into a chaotic abyss, or, causes Ghana irreparable damages.

I doff my hat to him for the concern he shows about Ghana, making sure Ghana does not descend down the path of mayhem by the perceived irresponsible actions of one or a few individuals.

However, where were this same Peace Counsellor and his like-minded fellows when Yaw Boateng Gyan hatched a plan to molest or inflict injuries and death on a section of Ghanaians in an attempt to ensure victory for the NDC? Where was he when Alfred Agbesi Woyome duped Ghana out of GHC51 Million? Where has he been all this while that the NDC are abusing their mandate to govern the country? Or, like many people bought over by the NDC who see nothing wrong about the NDC activities, he also sees nothing wrong about Yaw Boateng Gyan, Kakra Essumang and especially, Okudzeto Ablakwah defending Africa Automobile Ltd to swindle Ghana of US$1.5 billion?

Let our Peace Counsellors first aspire to seek the truth, tell the truth, and vigorously pursue justice. This is the only way people can take them serious when they speak. Until then, their advice will be taken with the pinch of salt. As we speak, I see most of them as mere hypocrites who are far worse than those people who play stomach politics in Ghana.

Let the so-called Peace Counsellors first counsel themselves to tell the truth without being cowards, biased, and pure hypocrites who always lend blind support to the NDC. Until they condemn the government for conniving with Alfred Agbesi Woyome for duping Ghana of GHC51 million, Yaw Boateng Gyan for planning to intimidate or kill Ghanaians, etc, they should please give us a break.

Are they happy with Afari-Gyan rigging the elections for John Dramai Mahama? I am monitoring the Peace Counsellors from today onwards to see if they will change for the better or still wallow in their hypocrisy and cowardice.

I would have expected that Peace Counsellor to run out in knickerbockers to a radio or TV station to condemn Yaw Boateng Gyan but he chose to relax in the comfort of his bed doing his own thing. Anyway, let me leave the so-called Peace Counsellors to wallow in their own hypocrisies typical of Ghanaian stomach politicians.
