GO TELL NANA ADDO NOT TO CONTEST

Nyansasem, I agree absolutely with your sentiments expressed here. Of course, Gabby has to show personal loyalty to his cousin instead of taking a more realistic view of what the third-term Presidential candidacy of Nana Akufo-Addo will mean to the electoral fortunes of NPP. Nana Akufo-Addo might be the most popular figure among the NPP faithful, but he's simply NOT an attractive Presidential candidate who commands nationwide approval. The blunt truth is that, there will no progress in NPP's electoral progress come 2016 and in the long term, should Nana Akufo-Addo lead the party for the third time.

Importantly, it's high time for Nana Akufo-Addo to come out and end all the speculation about his future so that NPP can rebuild and strategize for 2016. I would rather wish Nana Akufo-Addo quits the party's leadership and throw his weight behind Dr Bawumia to stand as NPP's Presidential candidate. It is Dr Bawumia who can genuinely succeed in changing voter's perceptions and negative impressions of the NPP.

My personal advice to Nana Akufo-Addo is for him to quit the stage in adulation rather than in humiliation.
