Let me commence by extending my congratulations to the dedicated Managers and Campaign Team of Nana Akuffo Addo. Their ability to turn the ordinary into something extraordinary is truly remarkable, akin to transforming humble ingredients into a gourmet dish. Such a feat deserves recognition and applause!
I refrain from placing blame on those who placed their faith in this endeavor, nor do I consider them imprudent. They harbored lofty aspirations, and perhaps destiny had a hand in this unfolding drama. After all, if history tells us that even Israel once yearned for a king like other nations, then it should not astonish us when a nation-builder is seemingly replaced by individuals like Nana Addo and Bawumia, who appear to lean more towards destruction.
Initially heralded as a Human Rights Lawyer, Nana Addo’s actions seem paradoxical. How can one who champions human rights find himself at odds with the very rights of citizens? It appears that a certain degree of irrationality is a prerequisite for those who thrive on the misfortune of others.
When eight lives were tragically lost during the 2020 elections and failed to garner his attention, how can we expect him to respond to mere physical altercations?
The saga of the Takoradi girls, who seemingly received insufficient attention, and the promotions of police officers involved in their investigations raise disconcerting questions about what may lie ahead.
For those who initially underestimated the significance of the book “AGYAPADE3,” it may be time to revisit its pages. The roles played by individuals like Akufo-Dampare and the eagerness exhibited by COP Alex Mensah and other Commissioners to become embroiled in current affairs will no longer come as a surprise. The situation is even more dire within the military, where junior officers are superseding their seniors, often leading to forced resignations. Startlingly, NPP meetings are now being held within the confines of Burma camp, and neutrality among military officers is becoming an elusive concept. Disrespect within the ranks has become normalized.
The release of that incriminating tape can only be seen as divine intervention by the guardian spirit of Ghana.
Every dictator thrives on a weak and compliant Judiciary, and an unquestioning security apparatus is equally indispensable.
Characterizing Nana Addo as a dictator implies a takeover by a culture of complacency within our institutions.
Now is not the time to wait for 2024 to voice our dissent at the ballot box. 2023 should be a year of thorough cleansing. The youth must rise against the oppressors, wherever they may be entrenched – whether it’s within the Police Service, the Electoral Commission, or the Julorbi House.
Before these individuals return, urging us to rally behind their cause, let them experience a fraction of the hardships we have endured over the years.
How did our great nation descend so rapidly into a quagmire while hypocrites systematically dismantled our institutions? We must salvage Ghana, whether it requires us to do so with our hands or our feet. The time for action is upon us if we genuinely believe in brighter days ahead.
