Recent comments by the Ex President Mahama sounds unpalatable and unfortunate, he made comments threatening the electoral commission and the state that he and his party won’t accept the outcome of a flawed election. These derogatory comment against the Electoral commission supposed not to have come from the Honourable Mahama because of his position as an ex President and a candidate for the major opposition NDC.
We all remember the infamous incidence at Ayawaso Wuogon, where the ex President again threaten the nation by saying “the NDC was born out of revolution so we will match NPP boot for boot” and I think his insensitive comments are becoming too much and it threatens the peace of the nation.
Mahama should consider his position as flagbearer and becareful with some of his comments, he mostly sounds like he doesn’t care about the peaceful nature of our country Ghana but he only cares about how he is going to win election at all cost whether through foul or right means.
Countries like Rwanda and co have experience war and genocide because of misguided comments by some of its citizens and during that time many lost their lives and their economy shattered, and any person who have experienced war before will tell you how worse lives becomes under such experience.
I am quoting the late President John Evans Atta Mills, may his gentle soul rest in peace, “Ghana will not die” Mahama should be sensitive and think about the majority of our population which are women and children, they suffer most whenever there is an outbreak of war.
Ghana has come far, so Ghanaians do not want the nation to go back in the dark ages where people incite ethnocentric violences, we are one people and we love our dear nation Ghana, Ghanaians will vote peacefully and I entreat every citizen to register in the upcoming voter registration in order to exercise their franchise in coming December 7th election.
Remember to wear your nose mask and observe Social distancing.
