Victoria Hamah's reflections on social media commentary on Isaac Dogboe's defeat

I recall when some people wrote on their social media pages "Wonders shall Never End" on my poster which advertised my candidature for the Kintampo North Seat.

It presupposed they were the many who professed that my political career was over after the "Vickleaks".

Obviously my candidature appeared to have shocked them, clearly proving they had made very ignorant and ill-informed presumptions.

Certainly, such reasoning implies they have not observed the trails of history.

I am sure they have now realised that defeats, losses, and difficulties does not mean the end.

Just like myself, Isaac Dogboe and many others who have even become leaders of countries such as our own Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Ahmend Benbella of Algeria, South Africa's Nelson Mandela, Obasanjo of Nigeria, our Presidents Rawlings and Kufuor who even served jail terms signifies that struggles are only over when life is lost.

The decision to rise again is up to him, his will and desire to pick up the pieces and to start again.

I hope he will seek inspiration from the many turbulent stories of men and woman who despite it all, with sheer will and desire rose, again and again, each time they fell.

The great achievements of the world are born from relentless Desires and unflinching Wills.
