DEMOCRACY IS NOT PART OF MAHAMA’S UPBRINGING
John Mahama is the iconography of a despot who believes democracy or its ideals must find expression in whatever he deems to be the case or truth.
Let us embark on a trip into time, the 2012 elections’ petition. When William Atuguba JSC and his team delivered a judgment that many of us were not joyous about, Nana Akufo-Addo at the time said something which touched the hearts and souls many a Ghanaian.
He said he disagreed with the verdict of the Supreme Court but respected it. He emphasized that all his life, he had been fighting for a democratic country and would not do anything to derail something he had fought for. This statement endeared Nana Addo to millions of Ghanaians. Some political opponents had no choice than to commend him for such a posturing.
Fast forward, Mahama sends a hollow case, a matter one can soundly describe as D.O.A, to the Supreme Court and same is thrown out for lack of substance or merit and Mahama comes out with a speech that defies common sense and brings out his true nature.
“I vehemently disagree with the Supreme Court’s ruling and I am very much disappointed in it” Mahama thundered.
He went ahead to say that the apex court of the land is in the business of aiding the NPP and the EC to suffocate the masses of their rights and freedoms.
Compare the two statements and the personalities and you would agree with me that a desperate Mahama is bent on becoming president once again and if that would bring bloodshed, he cares less! Democracy is not part of John Mahama’s vocabularies.
