“There is no longer any shred of doubt in the minds of many discerning Ghanaians that the biggest opposition party in the country, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is hell-bent on winning power by hook or crook?, a Political analyst has observed.
The NPP, according to a political analyst at one of the nation?s top Universities and who wants to remain anonymous, ?is working very hard to paint President Mills as evil, a hypocrite and devilish? but this, he says will fail as Ghanaians are a very discerning people.
The reasons are not farfetched, he averred; ?after a thorough assessment of the situation pertaining on the ground, they see the integrity and high moral aptitude of President Mills proving by the day to be the undoing of their candidate, Nana Akuffo Addo?
?They have therefore found the least opportunity to find faults with the persona of the president as rather equally responsible for acts of omission or commission of agencies in the discharge of state required duties, and indeed, in some instances, on natural occurrence, such as accidents on the roads, lakes and factories and or the weather…
?Hardly does an opportunity present itself than one hears apologists and functionaries of the New Patriotic Party attacking the personality of President Mills. He is either callous, a hypocrite, a thief or ?nyaatwum?,? He opined.
He recounted many disparaging comments made by NPP officials and sympathizers pouring scorn on the Good Old Professor of Law. ?The General Secretary of the NPP, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie also known in political circles as Sir John described last year?s Easter festivities (under President Mills) as the worse ever experienced by the nation because the country did not witness the usual Good Friday rains in Kumasi.
Unfortunately for Sir John, he said, there was a heavy downpour with thunderstorm in Kumasi and surrounding towns on Good Friday and Holy Saturday this year.
The political analyst added that even if the lights goes off or water fails to flow, the NPP put the blame personally on President Mills, disregarding the fact that the constitution of Ghana has empowered various institutions of state to address issues of that nature.
