Mahama needs prayers to flush out “evil dwarfs”
Following his speech at the just ended 67th session of the United Nations General Assembly where he assured that Ghana will not allow its territory to be used to destabilize any country, President John Mahama used the National Democratic Congress Manifesto launch at Ho to outline his vision for the next four years.
Unlike the UN General Assembly that brought together various heads of state to deliberate on matters affecting the global economy and politics, the event at Ho was the coming together of the umbrella family to launch their policies (manifesto) for the next four years, when given the mandate by Ghanaians.
The event was well attended by leading party functionaries across the length and breadth of the country, with the aim to give hope to the hopeless, inspire the down hearted and revitalize those who have lost touch with the party.
When it came to the deliverables, it was the former President Jerry John Rawlings who set the place agog with his triumphant entry and his inspiring words to the party fateful.
In a brief statement, former President Rawlings prayed to God to give Mr. Mahama strength and courage to clear the ‘same old evil dwarfs’ in his administration, who ran down late President John Evans Atta Mills’ administration.
“There is nothing more oppressive than when a political leader refuses to see the action of negative element around him. In the same vein, there is nothing rewarding than when a political leader begins to see the negative action of these people. It means there is hope. I believe our President is beginning to see for himself the actions of these same old evil dwarfs.”
“Your president needs help and I pray to God to give him strength and courage to put his foot down and do what he needs to do,” he noted to rousing applause of the gathering.
Earlier, there were doubts as to whether the former President, who is the founder of the party, was going to honour the invitation to the Manifesto launch. However, he proved his critics wrong by honouring the invitation. He was accompanied by his spokesperson, Mr. Kofi Adams.
Also speaking at the event was the Chairman of the NDC, Dr. Kwabena Adjei. He told the gathering that the NDC has become a very attractive party to join, since their almost four years in office has seen the party lifting up the down trodden, the needy and the disadvantaged in the society. “The NDC is dedicated to serving our people and those very close to our heart,” he mused.
To this end, he urged all the regional chairmen of the party to mobilize votes from every nook and cranny of the country to ensure that the party retains power in the December polls.
