The 'deadly partner': Who would be bold to partner Mahama and 'die'?

The myths surrounding the deaths of Prof. John Atta Mills and Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur still linger on with no workable antidote, and no diligence for a search into the secret behind these deaths by the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Most shocking of the revelations behind these superstitious happenings are that Prof. Atta Mills and Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur were both partners of former President John Mahama during the 2008 and 2012 Presidential contests respectively and they both died at the end of their respective first term of office.

Aside their partnership with John Mahama bringing about an end of their lives, it also brought to them an end of their respective political careers before their deaths due to the incompetence tag their association with John Mahama attracted to their political brands during the tenure of their terms of office.

The above were sequential and as a result, could never just be coincidental.

The time for John Mahama to pick another partner for the 2020 presidential elections is due but the above issues and revelations are serving as an albatross around the necks of John Mahama and NDC, and are as a result also serving as a deterrent for any of the many capable men in the NDC to accept this rather prestigious offer extended to them by John Mahama, especially when they all envision themselves as potential winnable presidential candidates for the NDC after John Mahama’s NDC Presidential Candidate’s reign comes to an abrupt end in a nearer future.

It is as part of these reasons that the likes of Prof. Kwesi Botchwey, Julius Debrah, Betty Mould-Iddrisu and others have individually turned down the running mate offer extended to them by John Mahama.

So now the question is who would be bold and have the temerity to partner John Mahama and “die”.

Hhhmm, may God be praised always
