Is Dr Kobina Arthur Kennedy For or Against NPP?

Mon, 8 Sep 2014 Source: Adofo, Rockson

I am wondering if Dr Arthur Kennedy is truly a founding member or a sympathiser of the NPP family. Inferring from his published wantonly destructive, but not constructive, criticisms of the NPP, especially Nana Akufo Addo, one wonders if Mr Kennedy was not snitching on NPP. At critical moments that unity is called for within the party, one sees him coming out with bizarre ideas to widen the existing fissures in the party.

I am suspicious of his motives and allegiance to NPP. Outwardly a member of the NPP, inwardly he is assiduously working against the interests of the party. If he had his own way, the NPP never comes to power, if and only if, Nana Akufo Addo is leading it into national elections. How wicked could he be?

I have been following his public pronouncements, publications, granted interviews and actions since 2012. I can conclusively say without fear and without favour that Dr Arthur Kennedy is a complete enemy of the NPP. Like any carnal minded Christian who by paying lip-service proclaims to love God, but in reality, their heart is a distance away from God, so is Dr Arthur Kennedy to NPP.

“Action speaks louder than words”, so a dictum goes. His actions give him away. At this moment in the life of Ghana that the suffering masses, discerning Ghanaians and anyone with kind heart to reason as a human being, are calling for a change in government to usher in much better government and governance, Mr Kennedy is frantically working to deny them that yearned for opportunity. How wicked he is?

Let me make it clear to him, it is not solely Nana Akufo Addo that he is harming by his deep-seated, but understandably irrational, hatred, but also, the entire poor and suffering Ghanaians that are desperately clamouring for a change to guarantee themselves better governance.

If anyone whispers into my ears that Dr Arthur Kennedy is a diehard NDC spy planted in NPP for all these years, I will find it hard to doubt that person. His actions as commented on earlier are living proofs.

For the attention of Dr Kennedy, I will state the following:

• Nana Akufo Addo has never, and will never, encourage his supporters to fight members of the NPP family no matter how irresponsibly such family members behave towards him. • Nana Akufo Addo believes in human rights values, laws and regulations. He will therefore not do anything, or encourage anyone to do acts that will prevent one from fully availing themselves of such rights. • Nana Akufo Addo has never deterred or barred or seeks to disband anyone from competing with him for any post whatsoever. Therefore, he is not behind any dissuading attempts by some NPP members on his competitors to not contest him any further for the NPP flagbearership, based on the outcome of the Sunday, 31st August 2014 NPP Super Delegate’s Congress where Nana emerged the clear winner with 80.81% of votes cast. He won 589 votes out of 740 cast with his front-runner (Alan Kyeremateng) polling 59 votes representing 7.89%. • Nana Akuffo Addo is not violent as alleged by Arthur Kennedy. If he were, he would have encouraged his supporters to go on rampage when William Atuguba (JSC) declared his ignominious verdict on Election 2012 petition on 29th August 2014. • Many Ghanaians, both poor and rich, but discerning enough, are crying for Nana Akufo Addo’s ascendancy to the presidency. • Nana Akufo Addo is farsighted, dynamic, honest, sincere, knowledgeable and very dedicated to being of selfless service to his country and people. The evidence is there for even a knucklehead to see and testify to.

Mr Kennedy, please cease your overtly mischievous acts against the person of Nana Akufo Addo. Your evil intentions about him are rather hurting God and the good, but suffering, Ghanaians. By your actions, you want to see the NDC continue to remain in power despite their corruption, incompetence and short-sightedness that have obviously sunk the nation’s economy. Is this how wicked Mr Kennedy is towards the suffering Ghanaian masses?

I now have a huge distrust for Mr Kennedy. NPP cannot rely on him or people like him to win any future elections, let alone, election 2012. What is he doing to reinstate my confidence in him as one of the true members of NPP? The onus is on him to prove me wrong in my presumptions about him, an NDC snitch within NPP.

Find below what he said about Nana Akufo Addo as read on Ghanaweb under its General News of Friday, 5 September 2014, sourced from peacefmonline.com titled, “Alan must expose Akufo-Addo’s bad reputation on violence - Arthur K”.

“Alan must expose Akufo-Addo’s bad reputation on violence … Ask why he has kept quiet on the many violent activities of people believed to be his supporters? Why is he quiet? Why did he say ‘all-die-be-die’ and why did he say Atiwa? Put those questions to him and expose his record on violence,” he urged on NEAT 100.9 FM

“According to Dr Arthur Kennedy, posing these questions would bring to bear the stand of the 2008 and 2012 Presidential candidate of the NPP and how he has contributed to violent situations over the years”.

Ghanaians, be judges yourselves on how dishonest or honest, sincere or insincere, Dr Kobina Arthur Kennedy is as a member of the NPP family. Please Father God, forgive him his sins, for he does not know what he is doing. I hope he becomes the prodigal son, realises his faults, and turns back to NPP as a repentant member to never again seek to undermine Nana Akufo Addo and NPP. AMEN!
