NDC is a Party of Comic Relief

Like the late Comical Ali of Iraq, the NDC as a political party is full of comic

reliefs. The failure of their expectation to coerce Ghanaians into singing their

praises and kowtowing to them has turned into anger, frustration and hatred. They

are quick to politicise issues by playing the blame game/cards. If the underlying

issues are not comical then I don't know what else is.

To start with, President Mills is being manipulated by his NDC fanatics to do

whatever it takes to boost up his popularity. A pupil had wrongly answered that Nana

Akuffo-Addo is the President of Ghana instead of Atta Mills who really is. In order

to rectify this anomaly, the NDC gurus, activists and sympathisers with the probable

tacit support of President Mills have decided to: 1) Post President Mills' portrait

in every classroom throughout Ghana. 2) They have decided to distribute cups bearing

President Mills' photo to every pupil and student of Ghana. These sadistic

initiatives are to the NDC the way forward to telling Ghanaians that it is rather

Atta Mills but not Nana Akuffo-Addo who is the President of Ghana and the Commander

-in-Chief of the Ghana Armed forces. It beggars belief that in the midst of economic

suffering to Ghanaians, some people have found time and comfort to advocate for such

superficies of politics. The President wants to command

respect and acknowledgment but one thing he has forgotten is, it is said, "respect

is earned but not commanded"

May I suggest that President Mills orders for the reprinting of Ghana's currency to

bear his images? Money has a wider circulation and people will get to know him much

quicker and better than by the cups to school children and his pictures displayed on

school walls. He can have his image on every currency note and coin as does Queen

Elizabeth of England.

Mrs. Konadu Agyemang Rawlings is openly doing all that it takes to unseat President

Mills as the leader and Presidential candidate of NDC come their Congress in late

2011. It is only a fool who may claim unawareness of the Lady Konadu's intentions

and ploys. A new political party was formed in Brong-Ahafo by her fans and those NDC

guys disenchanted of President Mills' administration that they claim to have lost

its socio-politico-economic bearing. Mrs. Rawlings who is a coward but loud-mouthed

denied any knowledge of, or, association with the new party after a small heckle

from the NDC apparatchik. She has what looks like her campaign posters being put up

in public places throughout the big cities under the cover of darkness. When

questioned, she once again denied any involvement with the posters. This is a sign

of utter cowardice.

One Amina Mohammed goes on air to recount her worst nightmare of attempted armed

robbery and mass rape of which she was a principal witness. Her story could be true

with a bit of exaggeration or it could be completely true or utterly false. But to

these NDC comical activists, sympathisers and gurus, in each of the stated

instances, NPP are behind as architects. The NPP formed the new party and accused

Mrs. Konadu of being behind its formation. The NPP spent money, printed Mrs.

Rawlings' posters, hired nocturnal beings and tasked them to put the posters up.

What will the NPP gain from doing that? The NPP paid Amina Mohammed to come out with

such a big lie that will tarnish the reputation of the NDC and President Mills. The

NPP asked that pupil to say that Nana Akuffo-Addo is the President of Ghana. These

are the nonsense that the NDC are peddling. Give the dog a bad name...... Every

problem they encounter as bad administrators as they are, they blame it

on NPP. If this is not the behaviour of comical entities then I don't know what

else is.

We can never get what we deserve as law-abiding citizens from the NDC. Can we? They

have earned a bad name and it is very difficult to lose it. They love wallowing in

lawlessness and stupidity same as does the pig that wallows in its own shit. The

unreasonableness and shallow-mindedness of most NDC guys know no boundary. Keep on

blaming your ills, inefficiencies and acts of lawlessness on NPP until Mrs. Konadu

Rawlings takes President Mills by surprise. The NDC are themselves their own

distractors. "Bitches are aggressive, assertive, domineering, overbearing…"
