In the minds of the NPP, there is difference between a vision and a promise and they confusing Ghanaians with it. So the 88 district and 6 regional hospitals the President said he is going to build, is it a promise or a vision? Let’s discuss and know where it belongs. We can’t wait until December, 2020 to be told that it was a vision.

The NPP says NDC has no message but if the only messages for John Mahama in the upcoming elections are to reduce the size of government, cancel Teachers National Service and Licensure exams, those alone will give him enough votes to beat Nana Addo. These are promises that will not turn into visions. They are promises the NDC is committed to keep.

*NDC will not accept any flawed elections*
The above were the strong words to the people of Ghana, especially to Nana Akufo-Addo, Mrs Jean Mensah, Dr. Bossman Asare and the Chief Justice, Justice Kwasi Anin-Yeboah. The words didn’t come from no a less person than the former President and Flagbearer of the NDC, John Dramani Mahama.

Since these words were spoken, the governing NPP have given different meaning to it but I think, the personalities mentioned above still have time to rescue any flawed elections coming our way. Hon. Inusah Fuseini did put it better when he said, the elections in December should be opened to all Ghanaians, eighteen years and above, and of sound mind, to vote.

I am aware there are cases at the Supreme Court to make the above happen. We are all waiting for 23rd June or so, to see what the results will come from the Supreme Court. I made my predictions on 11th June but I will leave it like that.

President Mahama has said NDC will not accept any flawed elections in December 2020, but I think this is a normal statement from an incoming President. I am sure the Director of Elections, Hon. Elvis Afriyie-Ankrah has taken note of that statement. It is just to throw challenge for Nana Akufo-Addo and Jean Mensah to also come out publicly and assure Ghanaians that the elections in December will be free, fair and transparent. They should not just say it but they should put in place measures that will get Ghanaians to believe them.

Ghana has had experience with Ayawaso West, where animals were released to attack human beings; the elections to create the Regions, where there were videos of people voting multiple times and recently at Tarkwa Nsuaem, where some assembly members were forcefully prevented from voting. When the President was asked, he said he was not aware that the NIA were registering people in Eastern Region, after he had announced the postponement of such activities due to COVID-19. In all these instances, the NPP has had its way without any challenges, but no more!!!

If you are a member of the NDC, you want an assurance from your Flagbearer and party leadership, that your time, money and other resources will not go to waste due to flawed elections. This is why I welcome this refreshing statement from John Dramani Mahama.

In America the Chief Justice, Justice John Roberts, had to save the Obamacare, the Presidency and the country by taking over his Court and applying both the law and common sense.

In Ghana, I expect the Chief Justice, Justice Kwasi Anin-Yeboah to take over his Court and save our country, our democracy and the Presidency, so on January 07, 2021, Nana Akufo-Addo will hand over peaceful to John Dramani Mahama. I don’t think I have asked too much from Justice Kwasi Anin-Yeboah.

Sometimes it is a blessing that Nana Addo is the President today. The temperature of Ghana would have been so high if JM were the President. Now Nana Addo, Dr. Bawumiah, Pius and all the rest have seen their smoothness levels. I bet some of them wished they could resign but hey.......... we fall together

*George Floyd was never a Ghanaian*
I know the media will never discuss this so I will talk about it. Do you guys remember that recently Nana Akufo-Addo accepted the citizenship of some African-Americans as Ghanaians? These were the people who were at the memorial service of George Floyd, the African-American killed in Minnesota. The staff of the Tourism Ministry were also in attendance.

I am on several platforms including the one called “Politics 101” There is a strong NPP guy on it, called Kwame Antwi-Frimpong of Michigan, USA. He posted Ghana’s memorial service of George Floyd on the platform, apparently, he didn’t like the nonsense his government has gotten itself into. Immediately, another strong NPP guy, “KYG” tagged the video and asked, “what’s wrong with that?” Kwame, the originator of the post also tagged that question and asked “How about we started with what’s good with it?” Immediately the platform that has over 30 strong NPP members on it went 🙈as if no one saw Kwame’s question.

The secret why George Floyd who has never been a Ghanaian, was not killed in Ghana but had a befitting memorial service in Ghana is that Nana Addo wants the votes of all the African-Americans he gave them Ghanaian citizens. Nana Addo has shown over and over that he cares very less about Ghana and Ghanaians.

We are aware of how Ghanaians like Ahmed Suale, the three Takoradi girls and the 20 children who died at the Kintampo water falls died in Ghana but were never given any state memorial service. Major Mahama died serving his country and mankind but Nana Addo never attended his memorial service. There are several Ghanaians who have died in Ghana serving the country but Nana Addo acted like he never heard about them, but George Floyd, an American, died in America got a memorial service in Ghana.

Should it take Dr. Lawrence to tell the government that enough of his foolishness?

Ladies and gentlemen, Nana Akufo knows the grounds are not good for his re-election and he is trying very hard to hold unto anything including even de-enfranchising some Ghanaians who want to vote and welcoming returnees from Kuwait as if his government did something about their return.

He has sympathy for an American dead over Ghanaians, just because of politics. If you are a Ghanaian, what Nana Addo did with the dead of George Floyd against the dead of Ahmed Suale and the three Takoradi girls, should tell you that Nana Addo just want your vote to remain President. He doesn’t care anything about you. If you should die right now, he will say “all die be die” and leave you to rot. You don’t wanna listen to such a character if he comes to you and ask you for your vote. He is a con man and you are not stupid.

*I also support Sammy Gyamfi*
Do we know why anyone who wants to describe the NPP, describes them as stupid? Hon. Kennedy Agyapong described them as stupid. Kofi Wayo described them as stupid. A-Plus described them as stupid. Chairman Rawlings described them as people who don’t change except their name.

I started like that because of the way they handled the cartoon by Sammy Gyamfi, who used the cartoon to send a democratic message. The message was that Nana Addo and Jean Mensah are using the NIA and the Electoral Commission to take the last breath away from the Ghanaian voter. Even though the cartoon didn’t say so, some idiots were quick to likened it to the death of the black Minnesota man, George Floyd.
This is where the stupidity of the NPP comes in.

They think because the cartoon showed Nana Addo in it, they should just attack without thinking. The message the cartoon was carrying was not only for this generation, but for the many generations yet to come and also good for our young democracy.

You see, the NPP think they are in power this year so they don’t care if the rights and identity of the Ghanaian are taken away. They don’t care if out of about 30 million people, only 10 people will be allowed to vote in December. They don’t care if the voter’s voice is suppressed by any means. They don’t care if the voice of the people comes under attack and they don’t care if their government uses threat, intimidation and foolishness to rule.

The killings of black people by especially white police happen in America all the time. It only becomes news depending on how the killing was done. They demonstrate and within a month, it dies down and within a year, another black man is killed. I say this to mean this thing is not going away anytime soon. They don’t have anything to stop it forever.

But look at the message Sammy Gyamfi’s cartoon is carrying. If it gets the world’s attention and they begin to focus on the democracy of Ghana, I believe they will resource us to make it better.

We will not have Electoral Commissioners, whose job is to rig the elections for the President. We will have a President who will not rely on the rigging machinations of the EC to retain power. We will have not a parliament that acts as stooges for the government in power. We will have an EC who will ensure that EVERY Ghanaian qualified to vote has a card to vote and we will have a President who will respect the voice and the power of the people.

These benefits will not be for only this generation but for the next generations to come. American democracy has lived almost 250 years because it was built on these principles. This is why I also support Sammy Gyamfi.

When Nana Addo visited our homes on Sunday, I thought he was going to announce his resignation because he was elected with a voters’ register that isn’t credible.
You see, there are some black people in Ghana. In 2016, they said they elected their President with a credible register. In 2020, they said the register they used in 2016 isn’t credible. Meanwhile, they have not told that President to resign because he is an incredible President. Can you now understand the black race?
It is very wrong for the white people to kill the black race around the world. It is a sad situation but do you blame them? They think the black race doesn’t think properly.
If you voted for a President with an incredible voters register but cannot tell him to resign, but use the incredible register to argue for change of the whole voters register, then you are one of the reasons the white race want to eradicate the black race. They think so long as you are stupid, you don’t deserve to live.

*Election 2020: Lessons from Iowa State*
The Democratic Party in the USA had their first primary elections in Iowa State and the whole thing turned out to be a fiasco, at least for about a month.
The main reason for the fiasco was that the results for that elections were not ready because the machines they used couldn’t produce the results as expected. The machines were down.
When the National Public Radio (NPR) contacted the election commission, they didn’t talk to them but their earlier investigations had revealed that they used new machines which were not tested before the elections. The commission were so sure that the machines were going to work only to find out that the elections results could not be collated.
There is the debate in Ghana that the Electoral Commission is going to buy some new machines for the 2020 Elections. The machines are going to be used for the first time for these elections. This is the where the lessons from Iowa State come in.
The Electoral Commission is independent per the constitution but the independence is limited by those who lead it.
This Electoral Commission led by Mrs Jean Mensah and Dr. Bossman Asare still don’t think there would be elections in Ghana on December 7, 2020. They are preparing the grounds for several law suits that would prevent the elections from being held. We are 6 months into a major elections in Ghana but they don’t care about what they are doing.
They have laid a CI in Parliament and I don’t know whether they took the maturity date of the CI into consideration before laying it. They have procured machines for the 2020 Elections but the machines are yet to arrive in Ghana. Comrade Brogya Genfi has said on several radio and TV stations that the machines have not arrived. I thought by now the EC would have come out to debunk those statements. They are training their staff using the machines, they claim are obsolete. What kind of Electoral Commission does that? Unfortunately, apart from some wise people who are talking about it, everybody else thinks it is okay.
Ghanaians, unfortunately voted for the incompetent President of Nana Addo. He appointed the clueless Jean Mensah and Dr. Bossman Asare. I am wondering what the other “wise” men would have done if today, John Mahama and Charlotte Osei were the President and EC Chair respectfully.
These “wise” men don’t see anything wrong if there is no time table for the elections, six months to vote; they don’t see that the EC has a CI in parliament which will take away the rights and identity of the Ghanaian; they don’t see the danger of the EC using new machines for a major elections as the Election 2020. They don’t see any thing.
The bottom line is any one who thinks an Electoral Commission who can’t even write a perfect letter to invite political parties to a meeting but can organize a free and fair elections in Ghana is a fool. Again, any one who thinks the same person who said all die be die in order to win elections is going to superindent over a free and fair elections is an idiot. I have said it.

*Election 2020: Lessons from Tarkwa Nsuaem*
I don’t know the kind of intelligence the NDC is using to go into election 2020, but to me so far, they are failing Ghanaians. Our intelligence failed at Ayawaso West and on Friday, it failed again at Tarkwa Nsuaem. The NDC has always played the catch-up, and before they realized, the election was over and the EC has announced the winner. Sorry, if this write-up is hard on the leadership of the NDC. I feel if some of us don’t say it, Ayawaso, which repeated itself at Tarkwa Nsuaem will show up again on December 07 but pulling out from any constituency elections will not be an option. The grassroots will take over.
At Ayawaso, people were intimidated, beaten and prevented from voting. At the end of the day, the NPP candidate was elected the MP. At Tarkwa Nsuaem, people were intimidated, locked out and prevented from voting. At the end of the day, the MCE was confirmed. Do we see any similarities between the two? People were prevented from voting and the NPP had their way.
Why is the leadership of the NDC thinking that the December elections will go smooth like the one in 2016? I am saying this because there was absolutely no protection for the people who were going to vote against the MCE. *Didn’t the NDC leadership in Tarkwa Nsuaem and above know that the morning was going to go the way it went?* Do we have weak intelligence on the ground at the Contituencies and Municipalities?
I personally think the Tarkwa Nsuaem elections was one election NDC should have flexed its muscles towards election 2020. We should let Ghanaians know that we are ready to take power from the NPP and run the country better. If we allow them to beat us on the intelligence side, we will be fighting a lost battle because we should not expect that Nana Addo and Jean Mensah will run a free and fair elections in December.
The leadership of NDC from bottom to top should be vigilant oooooo tom. Elections are won on the ground and they should resource the grassroots and get the necessary intelligence for the battle ahead. I am aware some parliamentary candidates are struggling with resources to even do a door-door campaign in the COVID-19 style. I am happy with the way the party is monitoring the EC but in Ghana, the EC is not everything. Even the police can do more harm in election 2020 than the EC. Just look at how the police was used at Tarkwa Nsuaem.
Events at Ayawaso and Tarkwa Nsuaem should tell every NDC member that election 2020 is not going to be a normal one. We should spend and do whatever it will take to protect our voters from the police intimidation and from EC machinations. Once we are able to take care of these two institutions, the NPP will be a little fish. We can achieve that with good intelligence and constant vigilance. The leadership should not think the excitement on NDC platforms means we are wining. We need to go beyond the politics on WhatsApp platforms. I am just a messenger.

*What if JM had won with an incredible voters register?*

In any civilized country, Nana Akufo-Addo would have resigned before the NPP and EC talked about an incredible voters register that was used to elect him. The NPP claim they won the 2016 elections with over 1 million votes but has now turned around and telling us that the old register is bloated and that a new one must be made before December 06. What name would they be giving to John Mahama if the NDC had been under this situation? The NPP now wished they didn’t tell Ghanaians that they won the 2016 elections with I million votes.

Do you remember all the names they gave to John Mahama when the election petition was going on in 2013? Let me remind you of some. They called JM the “sit-in” President. They called him the “stolen-verdict” President. They called him the “interim” President. They called him “West African” President.

In 2016, they had the courage to tell us they won the Presidencial elections by over 1 million votes but in 2020, they are telling us that register they used to win that many many votes is not credible. What name would they have given to JM if he had won with an incredible voters register, but they call their President as Nana Akufo Addo.
In 2020, they are saying the 2016 voters register is bloated. What name would they have called JM if he had won with a bloated register, but they call their President as Nana Akufo-Addo. In 2020, they are saying the 2016 voters register is contaminated. What name would they have given to JM if he had won with a contaminated register, but they call their President as Nana Akuffo-Addo.

The Electoral Commission thought people were going to blame them for that lazy way they handled the district assembly elections, so they quickly came out and said the success rate on the district assembly elections was between 90-95%. Today, they wished they had not said that. When they were praising themselves in those days, they didn’t know it was going to bite them later down the road.

Fellow Ghanaians, there should be only one thing the Electoral Commission and the NPP should do for you to accept a new voters register. They should accept, and I agree with Hon. Elvis Afriyie-Ankrah, who said that we have a contaminated President at the Flagstaff House. They should accept that we have a bloated President in Ghana. They should accept that we have an incredible President presiding over mother of all corruptions in Ghana. I can assure you that many of the appointees of this contaminated President will go to jail between 2022 and 2024. It’s a prophecy.

The compilation of a new voters register, 6 months to elections, in the midst of COVID-19, doesn’t make sense at all, but who am I to tell Nana Akufo-Addo, Mrs Jean Mensah and Dr. Bossman Asare that they lack common sense. Do you know why I left Dr. Bawumiah out? Guess it.
