IF MANASSEH AZURE IS CORRECT AND RIGHT, HOW COME THE SON OF A THIEF BECAME PRESIDENT OF THIS COUNTRY AND STILL WANTS TO COME BACK?
The Akans have a saying that “if the tortoise demands for more blood, more water is added to it”. In the same vein, since John Mahama is looking for more presidential honours, more ex gratia and more corrupt deals, more of him must be opened for interrogations.
On page 317 of ” THE FOURTH JOHN “, a book written by Manasseh Azure with the full approval of John Mahama, the former president before publishing, Manasseh made factual revelations that Hon. E.A Mahama, the first Northern Regional minister under the Nkrumah’s CPP government and biological father of John Dramani Mahama, stole a generator or plant, that was meant to provide light in Tamale. Manasseh’s story had it that it took Alhaji Mumuni Bawumia, the father of the current Vice President of Ghana to expose E.A Mahama, father of our former president, John Mahama. As a result, Dr. Nkrumah relieved E.A Mahama off his ministerial position for stealing a “generator”. John Mahama read the book and neither denied nor rebutted that aspect of the narrative. John Mahama indirectly approved of that aspect of the story.
Whether Ghanaians were charmed or this “son of the thief” was smuggled into the Jubilee House to forcefully run the affairs of this country, it has now been proven that “stealing” is inherent in the DNA of the Mahamas. He simply came to complete what his father started. As a president, before Ghanaians could say Jack, he has dubiously taken a Ford Expedition car, awarded and inflated contract prices and sold the state bauxite to his brother, i won’t talk about how he robbed Ghana as a minister and a Vice President. Just as Nkrumah did to the father, Ghanaians as a whole rejected him. As he believed Ghanaians easily forget, he is again moving every mountain to come back again to cause more damage as if he has not caused enough damage in his first term.
Even if Ghanaians are left with only five in this country, will you allow such a known son of a known thief to rule Ghana for the second time again? Unless Manasseh Azure is wrong and not right, the remote reasons for JM’s second coming is to dry our state coffers for his family.
Reject Mahama this time to dignify our presidency and let that send a strong signal to the politicians of today that their sins of today will haunt their children in the future.
