Resist Mahama and He Shall Flee

Wed, 6 Nov 2013 Source: Adofo, Rockson

As Jesus directed Christian believers to, "Resist the

devil and it shall flee", so do I call on discerning Ghanaians to resist

John Dramani Mahama and he shall scurry away like a frightened dog with its

tail tucked in-between its legs. The dog reference or analogy is used

figuratively, so the public must please take note and excuse my French.

Until when are Ghanaians going to sit on their lap, twirling

their fingers, hoping for a Messiah to descend from the Higher Firmaments to

rescue them from the slavery they are subjected to under the hands of John

Mahama and his brigade of the Ghanaian version of the "Arabian Ali Baba and his forty


The Mahama NDC-led government is depleting the coffers of

Ghana at such an unprecedented awful rate yet; Ghanaians are powerless to do

anything to stop them. The President, John Mahama, does not see the seriousness

of his inactions and actions but keeps giving promises upon promises to better things.

In effect, he has taken Ghanaians for fools who readily accept his bullshitting

for truth to submissively continue to exercise patience with him while he

doubles his propensity to steal at the expense and ignorance of the citizens.

While Ghanaians are suffering in their numbers, the hopeless

Mahama government, as callous as the Ministers and their Deputies are, continue

to scramble for wealth as if all is well with every Ghanaian, and tomorrow

never come. They ascribe erroneously to the belief of, “Opportunity knocks but

once". Therefore, they are making hay while the Sun shines. They are

stealing as much money as they can while they have the opportunity to be in

office as they cannot tell what tomorrow may bring. This idea is myopic,

scandalous and condemnable.

To John Mahama and his bunch of stealers, "today is

tomorrow's yesterday, so do not put to tomorrow what you can do today, for

tomorrow may be too late for what you can do today". Simply put,

"procrastination is the thief of time. This is why they are stealing all

that they can today than to do so little by little into the future.

Whatever their aim is, we can no longer put up with their

persistent stealing. We had better tell them that enough is enough. I call on

all serious and dedicated Ghanaians to start resisting the evil that Mahama

represents in their life. We have to mount collective pressure on him to quit

the presidency. We have on various platforms indicated to him that he is

corrupt, visionless and incompetent and that he has to look himself in the

mirror to start changing his attitudes. However, he does not understand but

rather continues to do worse things.

As a work colleague, Alf Wright, once told me, his mum used

to say to him when growing up, “if you don't hear it, you will feel it”. When

he was playing truancy and the mum warned him to stop but he continued to, the

mum would grab him by the ear, pinch it and twist it hard. When he started crying,

the mum would say as stated above. In the same manner, as Mahama continues to

ignore our cries to him about our plight under his government, it is about time

we made him feel it.

Let us proceed on public demonstrations. If he still refuses

to curtail his corruption to do as we expect of him, then we have to resort to

civil insurrection to kick him and his bunch of Ali Baba thieves out of government.

Ghanaians should be bold to do this. We should not continue to hope for the

angels of God to descend from Heaven to pinch or twist the ears of obstinate

Mahama before he does as majority of Ghanaians require of him.

President Mahama, you were not born to rule. You were not

trained to rule. You were probably born and trained to steal but that is not

what Ghanaians want. Would you please vacate your post if you cannot do as

discerning Ghanaians expect of you, oh President "Ede bii keke?"










Do you detest me for telling the truth? I do not care as

long as God is [pleased with me. HATE ME IF YOU LIKE, BUT IT MUST BE FOR A GOOD
