Not from God Mahama’s 2012 victory was an error – KEEA PPP

“The mistake Ghanaian voters made in voting for John Dramani Mahama to become President cannot be placed at the doorstep of our Lord God. It was human error of the worst kind, one that must not be repeated,” they said in a statement.

The Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abirem (KEEA) branch of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) has described President John Mahama’s 2012 presidential election victory as a human error of the worst kind.

According to the party, Ghanaians made a mistake by voting for Mr. Mahama to become President hence, God cannot be said to have been responsible for his win.

“The mistake Ghanaian voters made in voting for John Dramani Mahama to become President cannot be placed at the doorstep of our Lord God. It was human error of the worst kind, one that must not be repeated,” they said in a statement.

The statement which was signed by the KEEA PPP Constituency Chairman, J. B. Eshun was in response to an earlier statement issued by the KEEA branch of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) which stated that the PPP founder, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom was envious of President Mahama’s position as the leader of the nation.

Their statement was informed by a Facebook post in which Dr. Nduom debunked the President’s earlier comments that leaders are appointed by God.

In a sharp rebuttal, the PPP in KEEA said: “Dr. Nduom is a KEEA statesman with an international reputation whose credibility transcends partisan political and ethnic lines.”

“As an entrepreneur, his contribution to creating jobs for the youth in KEEA and all over the country has been immense. So for NDC Executives to consider this man who has served his nation with distinction to be envious of anyone is disingenuous,” they added.

 

Read their full statement below

We the executives of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) in the KEEA are shocked that anyone from our municipality would go into the public arena to attempt to throw mud at Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom.

Dr. Nduom is a KEEA statesman with an international reputation whose credibility transcends partisan political and ethnic lines.

As an entrepreneur, his contribution to creating jobs for the youth in KEEA and all over the country has been immense. So for NDC Executives to consider this man who has served his nation with distinction to be envious of anyone is disingenuous.

We are certain that judging from the negative reactions pouring in from all over the world to their misjudged attempt at mudslinging, they must be ashamed of themselves.

For all that this kind-hearted man has done for KEEA, the NDC Executives have shown themselves to be an ungrateful lot. Politics is not everything. Dr. Nduom spoke the truth when he cautioned politicians including President Mahama not to use the name of God in vain and not to be false witnesses.

Indeed, the mistake Ghanaian voters made in voting for John Dramani Mahama to become President cannot be placed at the doorstep of our Lord God. It was human error of the worst kind, one that must not be repeated.

We wish to quote Dr. Nduom: “As we continue to pray, Master, let not your people use Your name in vain. Teach us not to bear false witness. Teach us all to pray for humility, incorruptibility, diligence and the courage to take the righteous path. Teach our people to know that it is they who vote and that no free manna will fall from the heavens and that whom we give our vote to will determine our well-being on this earth. My Lord God, make our hearts pure and our minds fertile for the truth and help us make wise choices so that we can vote for leaders who will help us make excellent use of natural gifts you have put here on part of the world called Ghana. These and others I ask and pray for in the name of Jesus. Amen.”

We are wide Awake!

...Signed...

J. B. Eshun Constituency Chairman, KEEA
