Folks, we all saw what happened before Election 2012 when all manner of “Men-of-God” and leaders of other religious sects (Imams, traditional African religion, etc.) flooded our ears with prophecies that turned out to be false and became the foundation for resistance and ugly behaviour by those who genuinely lost the elections but won’t accept defeat. Some of those prophecies even verged on treason but were overlooked. Others turned out to be the motivation for more false prophecies regarding the death of President Mahama and many others.
Nothing happened, even when it became clear that the scare-mongers were indeed operating as lackeys of the politicians that they conspired with to discredit the winner of Election 2012 (President Mahama) and the Chairman of the Electoral Commission (Dr. Kwadwo Afari Gyan. They and their evil schemes fell apart as the dust settled; but a year after the Supreme Court had confir4med and sealed Akufo-Addo’s fate as a sore loser, he himself still can’t come to terms with that reality, saying yesterday that the NPP won’t allow itself to be cheated again. By making such porous utterances, he continues to prove that he hasn’t learnt anything useful from his fate to present a better image of himself at Election 2016 if he is chosen to lead the NPP again.
