Vote for John Mahama in 2020 and Get Many Things...

December 16, 2019

Vote John Mahama in 2020 and Get Many Things Free! The political terrain in Ghana for election 2020 is going to be very slippery. Either NPP or NDC have the chance to win or slip into a disgraceful, if not oblivious, hole. Many a Ghanaian is not happy about the inability of the NPP government under His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to decapitate institutional corruption masterminded and spearheaded by the very politicians we elect and entrust with power to rule Ghana. The situation is made worse by the heads and the top brass of the Civil Service, the police and the personnel of the Ghana judicial service, especially the judges, court registrars and the bailiffs. They are the perpetrators and perpetuators of corruption, if I should be frank with them. Following this seemingly letdown by the administration, the news is rife that some people are claiming to be sandwiched between the rock and a hard surface, thus, are in a total dilemma. They see NPP and NDC as more or less descending from the same matrilineal lineage, their value is the same, if the NPP is not worse. Is the son of Korkor and that of Dede not the same people as Ghanaians humorously often say? Is it not because they are both Krobos of descent? NPP and NDC leaderships are politicians therefore, that corrupt blood is circulating within them, some people allege. However, I am seizing this opportunity to entreat Ghanaians to expose any member of NPP seen to be engaging in corrupt practices rather than to keep mute but decide to vote NDC and John Mahama back to power come election 2020. This is because, like promotional sales advertisement by some shops in Europe and the Americas, "Buy One, Get One Free" or "Buy One, Get One at Half Price", when you vote to re-elect John Mahama and NDC in 2020, you will get so many things free but will they be good for you generally? You will get more money being pumped into the rearing of guinea fowls (nkomfem) that will end up flying not only to Burkina Faso but to many West African countries. Is it SUBA or SADA, someone please remind me. You will get more seedlings or trees being planted in the peak of the hot weather in the Northern regions only to wither without a single tree or seedling left to show that trees had indeed been planted. Millions of US$ or Ghana New Cedis would have been spent. It is all about a cleverly devised plot to steal money from Ghana. Dear Editor, Could you please publish this article for me? Thank you. Rockson The political terrain in Ghana towards election 2020 is going to...
