Open Letter To Rawlings: You Can’t Damage The NDC

Your Excellency John Jerry Rawlings, for a few years now, l have observed you from far and near, and the more l do, the more heat l gather on my chest. I managed to contain it but it has reached its eruptive stage, and l will not allow it to paralyse me.

Your Excellency, ever since you perfectly handed over power, instead of leadership to ex-President J.A. Kufour, you never allowed him to have his peace of mind to lead this country. Your reason? Because he at a point in time tamed you from giving him ‘Presidential Consultancy’. At the least opportunity, you disregarded your ‘Statesmanship’ and went ballistic on him. I don’t like the New Patriotic Party (NPP) but l like the "Gentle Giant". Why? His tolerant and accommodative heart is par excellent. If he were the one who had done what you did to him in your reign, l doubt he would have been alive by now. At the time, l thought it was because he led the NPP and his personality you hated. But your current posture depicts the hypocrisy in you. I will come back to your current shameless flirtation with Nana Akufo Addo and the NPP.

From Kufour, came Prof. Fiifi Ata Mills. It was in his reign that hell descended Ghana. You treated the late President like ‘trash’ because just like Kufour, he at a point refused to rather be a ‘surrogate’ President to you. That was the beginning of his nemesis. A toddler’s parents would have treated it with much respect than what you did him. Even after almost a decade of his demise, you have not allowed him the rest God has granted him to have peacefully.

Come John Mahama, and the situation became worst. However, and strangely so – when Nana Addo ascended the Presidency, the true meaning of "…wonders will never end…" manifested itself. Suddenly the man you never got his name right except "that Short man", gave way to reverence for him. Strangely as well, that man, too – who saw nothing good in you except a ‘Coupist’ and a dictator, who was not ever ready to forgive you due to the sadistic abduction and murder of the three High Court Justices and the retired army Major, now sees you – a MENTOR? I know how betrayed Kwabena Agyei Agyepong, feels since that statement was made in your Ridge office. […]
