Are There Dark Forces Trying To Prevent Dr. Nduom From Standing In The December Presidential Election?

The shocking news that the Electoral Commission (EC) has pointed out a further 105 errors in Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom's nomination forms, which apparently ought to be rectified by the close of today's working day, is rather baffling.

If press reports are to be believed, then one hopes that the decision by the Progressive People's Party's (PPP) presidential candidate, Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom,  to head for the law courts again - as a result of that strange EC announcement of a discovery of 105  new errors on Nduom's nomination forms - will bear fruit for him.

What exactly is the point in the EC pointing out yet more errors in Dr. Nduom's nomination forms - up from just one error to as many as 105 new errors? It is a development that by any measure is indeed astonishing - and very disturbing in a nation striving to make its citizenry have confidence in all its key institutions of state.

There are many independent-minded, and principled Ghanaians, who are of the view that the EC's new stance, is tantamount to shifting the goal posts - in order to keep Nduom from running for president this year.

For such fair-minded Ghanaians - some of whom have condemnded the more immoderate critics of  the chairperson of the EC, Madam Charlotte Osei, in the past - the EC's new stance amounts to discriminating against Nduom.

It is hard to disagree with those who posit that the EC is exploiting the judgement  pronounced by the Supreme Court yesterday - in the appeal it filed asking the Supreme Court to nullify the High Court ruling asking it to allow Dr. Ndoum to rectify the single mistake on his nomination forms, which led to his disqualification - from standing as a candidate in this December's presidential election.

In pointing out a further 105 "mistakes" it says it  has discovered on Nduom's nomination forms, is the EC not running the risk of being accused by fair-minded Ghanaians,  of going fishing for yet more excuses - in order to enable it justify denying Dr. Nduom the opportunity to contest this year's presidential election?

in a sense, what the EC has done, in the case of Nduom, can be construed by some as evidence of a conspiracy against Nduom. If that is indeed the case, the question then is: Why is the EC so determined to keep Dr. Nduom out of this year's presidential election?

This blog is of the considered view that the EC is damaging its global image - and harming its international reputation as an African electoral body noted for fairness in conducting elections in Ghana - in being so intransigent  in the case of Dr. Nduom's candidacy.

The question we must ponder is: Perchance, does the EC's posture - in its attitude towards Nduom - result from pressure on it by  shadowy figures manipulating the system in order to prevent Nduom from contesting the December presidential election at all costs?

As patriots who love  Mother Ghana, dearly, this blog is of the humble view that Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom is the best candidate, for our country to elect as Ghana's next leader, in the December presidential election - because he dwarfs all the other candidates in terms of their abilities to create wealth and jobs in a very difficult economic environment.

All patriotic Ghanaians, who are indepedent-minded, and fair-minded, must not allow dark forces operating from  the shadows to continue manipulating the system, to prevent Dr. Nduom from contesting the December presidential election.

For the sake of today's younger generation  of educated (and not-so-well-educated) Ghanaians,  and to protect the well-being of future generations of our people,  we must all do everything possible to stop those evil dark forces operating from the shadows, from succeeding in their aim of eliminating Nduom from our nation's politics.

In a nation in which millions worship daily at the alter of the Cult-of-the-mediocre, Nduom - who wants to unify Ghanaians and turn our system into a meritocratic one in order to transform Ghana into an African equivalent of the egalitarian societies of Scandanavia - is a national treasure we must  cherish and honour.

To protect their own individual futures, younger generation Ghanaians must awaken to the dangers our nation faces, if our homeland Ghana continues to be dominated by the kleptocratic NDC/NPP duopoly - made up of the no-longer-fit-for-purpose, corrupt and opaque National Democratic Congress (NDC), and the equally corrupt and opaque, no-longer-fit-for-purpose New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Ghana does not need the outmoded scorched-earth-politricks,  in which extremist politicians in the political wilderness actively sabotage the nation-building effort, as a strategy to effect regime-change. Its practioners in the NDC/NPP duopoly are even prepared to let Ghana burn if that is what will win them power.

All Ghanaians who can think for themselves, ought to join the fight to put an end to the outmoded and corruption-riddled  machine-politics, of the NDC/NPP duopoly. It is slowly destroying our homeland Ghana.

That is why educated younger generation Ghanaians must join their peers who can see the golden opportunity an Nduom presidency represents for our benighted country - and fight to stop the dark forces trying so desperately hard to eliminate the honest, brilliant, harworking, principled and visionary Nduom from  our nation's political landscape.

Hmm, Ghana - enti yewieye pa enei? Asem kesie ebeba debi ankasa!
