Comment to:Re: Ghana Wins....2016 here we come
Yes! That is the spirit! Ghana wins! I have always maintained that the NPP petition was void ab initio. It was a waste of time and resources. It is a pity that such a frivolous and extremely vexatious case almost plunged the nation into confusion.
The NPP needs to lick their wounds and begin to find out why they lost. It has to be clear to them that they lost not because they were cheated. Perhaps, they need to be less war-like. Bellicose statements like "all die be die" must have put voters off.
The insults of other ethnic groups need to stop. How do you call all Ewes "trokosi" and expect them to vote for you? How do you call people from the North as "cow rearers" and expect a massive vote? The NPP campaigned unwittingly against itself.
The "Free SHS" 419 also failed to trick Ghanaians. First of all, it was announced before much thought was even given to how much it was going to cost. Nana akufu-Addo was pathetic in his BBC HARDtalk interview, when he was asked a simple question:
"PRESENTER: So have you costed it? How much will it cost?'
NANA AKUFO-ADDO: The costing... the costing... is being... is being done. I mean very very soon we will be in the position.
PRESENTER: No, you must have costed it! You can't make a promise like that without costing it?
NANA AKUFO-ADDO: No, no, no, very, very soon we are going to be...
PRESENTER: How much?
NANA AKUFO-ADDO: Very, very soon, we are going to be... put it together. I prefer...
PRESENTER: You don't know how much?
NANA AKUFO-ADDO: I do know how much, understand, but...
PRESENTER: Oh, then tell me that?
NANA AKUFO-ADDO: I will prefer to tell the people of Ghana directly before I tell you."
Time for the analysis to flow! More is coming!
