Montie 3, Ghana's Shadrach Meshach Abednego want Mahama retained
One of the three loyalists of the governing National Democratic Congress jailed by the Supreme Court for contempt and released by president John Mahama has hit the campaign ground with a call on the party not to overlook the efforts of the president.
Godwin Ako-Gunn described himself, Alistair Nelson and Salifu Maase as the Shadrach Meshach and Abednego of Ghana's politics who have come back from prison stronger than ever before.
The Montie 3, as they are now popularly called, were supposed to have served four months in jail for scandalizing and bringing the court into disrepute after they threatened to kill judges and rape the Chief Justice.
But the president exercised his powers of mercy under Article 72 and remitted their sentence after serving just a month in jail.
In a thank you gesture to the president, one of the members told hundreds of NDC supporters in Winneba, Friday, the supporters cannot let the efforts of John Mahama go waste.
He said the electorate cannot afford to bring back a group of people who do not have the interest of Ghanaians at heart.
"Even in opposition, they are pushing for destruction," he stated.
Godwin Ako Gunn said just the same way Shadrach Meshach and Abednego were sent to the furnace of blazing fire to die, they were also sent to the Nsawam prison, but ended up setting a "record as the most visited inmates and returned stronger."
Daniel 3:15-16 tells the story of the three brothers Shadrach Meshach and Abednego who were put in a furnace to die after they failed to bow to an image created by King Nebuchadnezzar but were delivered from death by an angel sent by God.
Ako Gunn said Ghanaians will be throwing the vision of president Mahama away if they fail to retain him in office.
He said with the spirit of the late Atta Mills with the NDC they shall fear nothing. The president is also expected to address crowd.
