For Mother Ghana's Sake Wise Voters Must Reject Both Presidential Candidates Of The NDC/NPP Doupoly

With just a little over two weeks to go for the December 7th presidential and parliamentary elections, it ought to be pretty clear to all discerning Ghanaians, by now, that the elections have literally become a matter of life and death, for the constituent parties that make up the corruption-riddled NDC/NPP duopoly.

The question is: Will voters put the well-being of our homeland Ghana above narrow-minded tribalism and mean-spirited partisanship - and vote for the most suitable candidate to govern our nation amongst those vying for the presidency in the December presidential  election: Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom?

It is extraordinary that so many Ghanaians still do not realise that essentially, both the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), and the main opposition party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP), are political machines structured to exploit political power mostly for the benefit of our ruthless vampire-elites. They are two sides of the same debased coin. Literally.

The plain truth, is that as a result of the machine-politics they practice, the two constituent political parties that make up the NDC/NPP duopoly, are beholden to the very vested interests profiting mightily from the high-level corruption enabling them suck untold wealth out of our national economy, year after year - regardless of which of the two parties is in power at any given point in time.

The question is: Could that wealth being extracted from our  Byzantine system through high-level corruption not be used to improve the living standards of ordinary people throughout Ghana - if only we could rid ourselves of the malevolent NDC/NPP duopoly as well as those vested interests sucking the very lifeblood out of Mother Ghana?

It is a fact that amongst all the candidates standing in this year's presidential election, it is only Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom, who is immune to the blandishments of the super-wealthy crooks (local and foreign), who are purloining our nation's wealth through high-level corruption.

That is why he is the only presidential candidate to  commit to instituting probes into all the regimes that have held power since the 4th Republic came into being - without exception. It matters not a whit to Nduom who will be caught in that anti-corruption dragnet when investigations into past corruption commence when he becomes Ghana's next president in January 2017.

Unlike President Mahama, and Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo - the candidates of the political parties that make up the NDC/NPP duopoly - Nduom does not desperately need anyone's money, to campaign for the presidency, with.

He has enough resources of his own - ensuring his financial independence in the quest for the presidency: a situation that frees him from being caught up in the clutches  of the vested interests brutally gang-raping Mother Ghana.

The tragedy for our country, is that those well-connected  thieves robbing our nation blind, have succeeded in ripping Mother Ghana off, over the years since the 4th Republic came into being in 1992 - with the active connivance of the constituent political parties making up the corrupt NDC/NPP duopoly: which are both beholden to them.

Let every voter tempted to vote for the NDC/NPP duopoly's presidential and parliamentary candidates ponder why the leading lights of both parties persistently refuse to publicly publish their assets (and those of their spouses), as well as publicly publish all the sources of their parties' election campaign funds, voluntarily.

The question there is: Why, if persistent high-level corruption is the biggest drawback to Ghana's transformation, are the NPP's John Boadus,  Freddie Blays, Dr. Bawumias, Bernard Antwi-Boasiakos - and the rest of that negative crowd forever talking down the enterprise Ghana's prospects - so adamant that they will never publicly publish their assets and those of their spouses, voluntarily?

Is such public publication of their personal assets, and those of their spouses, not the  best way they can prove to Ghanaians - in practical fashion - that unlike the NDC (whose leading members they daily accuse of being corrupt), they have no hidden wealth-creation agenda of their own, crafted to enable them amass wealth by stealth whiles in office, if they are voted into power in the December 7th elections?

And is it not  an absolute disgrace that the Ghanaian media -  large sections of which are irresponsible,  unethical and infamous for selling their collective consciences - fail to highlight this refusal by the sly and hypocritical John Boadus, Freddie Blays, Bernard Antwi-Boasiakos, Sammy Awukus and their fellow travellers in the NPP's upper echelons, to voluntarily publish their personal net worth, and that of their spouses, publicly?

If those greed-filled and shameless dissemblers  have nothing to hide, why do they not also publicly publish all the sources of the NPP's election campaign funds, voluntarily? Will that not put clear blue water between their confounded party and the NDC?

Enough is enough. We must get rid of the hypocritical NDC/NPP duopoly and end the alternating musical-chairs-Kokofu-football-politricks that secures them dominance of our nation's politics.

Ghana needs a fresh start. If we are to prosper as a people, the necessary conditions must be created, for all those who are self-employed and running their own enterprises (large and small) to thrive.

It is only a President Nduom - leading a government of national unity made up of the most honest and brilliant Ghanaians from across the political spectrum - who has the practical experience  and discipline needed to create the necessary conditions that will enable Ghana's private-sector to thrive.

That is why at this particular juncture of Ghana's history, it makes perfect sense to elect as President, someone like Nduom, who despite the difficult economic conditions prevailing  in the country, has actually succeeded in creating significant wealth - that remains in Ghana instead of being sent abroad into secret offshore bank accounts - and through the subsidiaries of his holding company, Groupe Nduom, has generated thousands of  well-paid jobs across the country.

In light of all the above, wise Ghanaian voters, especially our nation's educated younger generations,  must vote for Nduom and reject the NDC/NPP duopoly's two presidential candidates - who lead violence-prone political parties dominated by amoral and aggressive individuals prepared to see Ghana descend into violence and chaos: if that will enable their parties' to secure victory on polling day. Enough is enough. Period.
