NDC's Coercive Political Attitude will bring Mother Ghana down

Ghana is sitting on a ticking time bomb that can go off at any moment from now. The

ignominious, reprehensible and incomprehensible Ghanaian attitude to politics is the

very bane that will destroy Ghana. The NDC's political attitudinal problems typify

the difficulty faced by the African in running his or her own affairs. What would

otherwise be a simple problem to resolve has now become an intricate maze under the

notorious NDC regime presided over by President Mills.

A little narration of events can make my point clearer to people. During the 2008

parliamentary and presidential elections, the NDC vowed to rain brimstone on Ghana

in the event of the NDC losing the elections. They would not settle for defeat as an

answer to the election results. They should win regardless the circumstances and the

outcome. It was their turn to govern Ghana and the balance must compulsorily tip in

their favour. What an outrageous audacity daring Ghanaians to vote against them and

then suffer dire consequences. They were more than ever to go to war on the people

of Ghana.

Former President Rawlings was the trumpeter blowing and orchestrating the resolutely

determined evil and threatening intentions of the NDC. Little did he know that "Man

proposes but God disposes" They went to the lengths, far and wide, to ensure certain

areas in the Volta region, the Bank of the NDC, became a no-go area for the rival

but incumbent NPP. The threats, intimidations and beatings of their NPP opponents

yielded them their anticipated goal. They won the elections but by an insignificant


In the time of the NPP government, I thought the administration was corrupt and that

Ghanaians deserved much better. I was not the least perturbed when there came about

a change in government. Truly, "the devil you know is better than the angel you

don't know" or, "a bird in hand is worth more than two in the bush" The NDC with

the dazed President Mills are far too corrupt, incompetent, insatiably greedy and

worse administrators than the NPP. They are refusing all sensible persuasions to

ensure the 2012 elections are devoid of taints, thus, rigging. The NDC accepts

Biometric voting but refuses its essential component of Verification. The NDC at the

wrong time and for dodgy reasons are creating unnecessarily numerous districts and

Constituencies across the country especially, in her strongholds.

The NPP in honest has decided to counter the threats spewed out on daily basis by

the "confused.com", thus, the NDC. They are ready to take the battle to the very

backyard of the temerarious NDC in the belief that the NDC need to taste the

sourness of its own concoction. When you always give the coward a chase, he will one

day muster courage, turn on you, and give you the fright of your life. When you

force an animal into a tight corner, it finally fights back. The NPP have now come

out with a frenetic slogan –"All die be die" The youth and the aggrieved under the

NDC administration are identifying with the concerns of the NPP and are ready to set

fire to Ghana in the event of the NDC inflicting daylight election-robbery on

Ghanaians come 2012.

With these threats coming from the two major political divides at certain defined

times, where is Ghana heading to? Instead of President Mills talking down his naive

Deputy Ministers with his Communications Director at the presidency, Koku Anyidoho

inclusive, he chooses to remain quiet. Silence is consent, so the wise man says. He

consents to their insulting of the public especially, the NPP that they see as

enemies instead of political rivals or compatriots.

The absurd intimidations in frantic perpetration by the NDC with the equally

determined intentions by the NPP to counter them boot for boot and bumper to bumper,

Ghana will soon be set ablaze. If war occurs in Ghana due to the folly of our

politicians, who will Ghanaians accuse of being responsible? Our insatiably greedy,

visionless, and incompetent politicians, especially the NDC, are to blame.

There is nothing to gain from being senselessly quiet with that ridiculous attitude

of wait and see. President Mills should rein in his inexperienced baby-face Deputy

Ministers with motorised mouth. Failing to do so, Ghana may soon burn, the fire

consuming both the extroverts and the introverts.

There is fire in Ghana run, run, and run!
