Former Chairman Rawlings, Where Are Your Former Comrades Since 1982 – To Date 2012? – Part 3

A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class over throws the other, Former Chairman J.J. Rawlings overthrew two corrupt governments twice in this country notably the June 4 Popular Uprising in 1979 and the Popular People’s Revolution on the 31st of December 1981 at a time Dr. Limann and his cabinet ministers were then busy eating with both hands and planning a heavy celebration of the New Year in Jan. 1982. These two successful revolutions led by Jerry Rawlings exposed the pent up anger of the vast majority of Ghanaian Youth who were prepared to die with Rawlings and die for Ghana because we were and are still fighting a CLASS WAR in Ghana.

The two revolutions exposed Ghanaian Youthful Patriots and intellectuals who all threw their weights behind the 31st December revolution and sacrificed extremely for 10 solid years. In 1985, corruption was in its worst form in the Ghana Education Service (GES) to the extent that billions of Cedis were being stolen by the G.E.S officials through most head masters in second cycle institutions nation wide. They code named that system with the infamous name “Over The Bar”. It was Professor Kwamena Ahwoi they then Secretary (Minister) for Local government who went on Radio and T.V and announced to the utter shock of the Nation how billions of Cedis were embezzled by G.E.S officials and their Headmasters nationwide. This explains why most head masters of second cycle institutions have pitched camp with the NPP led by Nana Akuffo Addo since 1992 to date 2012.

Therefore, the NDC, as a party born out of a revolution has a very bloody but RICH HISTORICAL BACK GROUND where patriotism, honest, nationalism and Godliness reigns Supreme since 1992 to date 2012. Twenty years of the NDC is not a mean achievement at all, so no matter what, Jerry Rawlings remains the Founder of the NDC until he dies, therefore, if he should break away to go and form a new party called the National Democratic Party according to rumours it will not only cause the NDC in 2012 but the Rawlingses will end up destroying their own political careers, their international as well their intelligent childrens’ future in this country. Rawlings is NOT a coward and has never been a coward because when DEATH was staring at him during his trial that led to the June 4 Uprising at a panel of corrupt Military Tribunal Panelists, he boldly told the panel members to “Leave My Men Alone” I (Rawlings) is Responsible for Everything – Today why should such a brave and fearless patriotic and selfless man leave the NDC to form a new party because of Dr. Obed Asamoah, Major (rtd) Boakye Gyan who was once his Achimota School mate and the Best man during his wedding ceremony with Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings in this country? Why should Rawlings leave the NDC to form a new party because of Goosie Tannoh a tried and tested cadre par excellence?

2) It was the same major Boakye Djan who saved the precious life of Rawlings who was to be executed on June 4 1979. Therefore, who ever is calling on Rawlings to abandon the great NDC and form a new party are the Number one Enemies of Ghana and the Great NDC party and millions of its supporters.


Frankly speaking, if new political parties could easily be formed and function nationwide, the Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) with Dr. Obed Asamoah as the life patron would have existed still. (2) If new political parties could easily be formed and function nationwide, the National Reform Party (NRP) led by Comrade Goosie Tannoh would have existed still (3) The National Independent Party (N.I.P) led by Mr. Darko would have existed now (4) The People Heritage Party (P.H.P) Led by General (rtd) Erskine would have existed still (5) The United Ghana Movement (U.G.M) led by Dr. Wereko Brobbey would have existed still. Among several others. Today 2012, every bodily part of the late Dr. Kwame Nkrumah has a political party in Ghana with all the leaders pretending to be Nkrumalists whose parties cannot field more than 3 parliamentary candidates or bag 3% of the total number of votes cast nationwide because almost all leading members of these Nkrumahists parties wants to become Flagbearers of their parties. As a former Young Pioneer Cadre, I always laugh at these so-called Nkrumahists in Ghana. With all these nasty state of affairs in the political arena, the NDC has been MULTIPLYING ITS OWN MISTAKES DAILY INSTEAD OF CORRECTING THEM. The Rawlingses must stop to think, take a sober reflection and rescind their suicidal decision to form a new party to contest the 2012 general elections. Who will sacrifice once again for the 8th time for the Rawlingses only to be dumped again?

The Rawlingses will end up gathering professional opportunists, selfish individuals, lazy supporters and money grabbers who would gang up and embezzle their campaign monies and the new political party will never make any impact in the 2012 general elections. The new Party, if formed, will rather cause the defeat of the NDC in 2012 for Nana Akuffo Addo, the vengeful war monger to take over the country in 2012. After his victory, the same Rawlings will never shut up but will again take him on in so many occasions again. In re-action, Nana Akuffo Addo will cage him in a “House Arrest” and no one will cough in Ghana – mark my words. If the Rawlingses have the war chest to form a new party, they should invest that huge cash on the remaining surviving cadres including this writer by supplying us with brand new tractors to go and farm to feed the nation period. Jerry Rawlings must look back and see whether his former comrades are still behind him or not. He should look back and think over it. What was their main reasons for parting ways with him? Was it not because of bitter dis-agreements? Jerry Rawlings – Don’t do it. Don’t do this to Ghanaians. Don’t praise the NPP again after reading this article, and leave Mills alone because you put them there, is that clear? I am done. “Jaanbie Iwaii Aluta Continua!
