Instead of preaching peace, he is doing otherwise. He and his friends in the security services are gearing up for series of battles.
Already, several plans have been hatched based on various scenarios. With that murderer in charge of the various plans of derailing our democratic march, arms and ammunition have been stocked in private homes of some members of party.
ARMS AND AMMUNITION IMPORTED IN THE NAME OF THE ARMED FORCES AND CLEARED UNUSUALLY FROM THE TAKORADI PORT HAVE BEEN CONVEYED TO UNKNOWN LOCATIONS OF THESE WAR MONGERS. THESE ARMS AND AMMUNITIONS WERE DELIBERATELY SENT TO LOCATIONS CLOSE TO THE BASE AMMUNITION DEPOT NEAR 1ST INFANTRY BATTALION AT MICHEL CAMP AS IF THEY WERE BEING SENT TO THE APPROPRIATE MILITARY DESIGNATED DEPOT FOR ARMS AND AMMUNITIONS BUT WERE INEXPLICABLY SENT AWAY IN NON-MILITARY VEHICLES UNDER MILITARY ESCORT.
MILITARY POLICE PERSONNEL HAD ESCORTED THE VEHICLES ARMS AND AMMUNITIONS FROM TAKORADI TO TEMA BUT WERE DRIVEN AWAY ON THE ORDERS OF THE THEN COMMANDING OFFICER OF 1ST INFANTRY BATTALION. TO DATE PERHAPS, ONLY TWO PERSONS WITHIN OUR COMMUNITY MAY KNOW ABOUT THOSE CONTRACTS AND THE DESTINATIONS OF THE ARMS AND AMMUNITIONS.
The intentions are so clear. They are not prepared or willing to hand over power to their bitterest enemies. They are prepared to fight. They are provoking war on all fronts starting with insults, brutalities, targeted assassinations, hit and run violence, robbery, torture, arson and the likes.
The strategies for fraudulent victory at polls are running side by side with creating and sustaining violence to enable them to declare a “state of emergency”.
Arms and ammunitions that were stockpiled during the PNDC era by courtesy of late Colonel Muammar Al Gaddafi have been augmented and are to be used to protect and prosecute the evil agenda.
The nouveaux-riches in our party are given all the necessary support for ‘operation elect ME’ to continue with the create, loot and share philosophy. But for such an inept and corrupt regime, how could such political neophytes become millionaires in dollar terms within a decade in public service?
Some of these sharp teethed nouveaux-riches persons were not in any gainful employment before the victory in the 2008 elections. Some of them did not have certificates from their universities and were therefore not working. They were saved by the “electoral declaratory victory” of late John Mills to have their certificates in March 2009 and yet today they are among the richest in our nation-state Ghana.
The victory also helped not fit for nothing members within this community to become rich and powerful by dubious promotions and appointments.
These persons could now afford to school in the UK while serving as Ministers in Ghana. These persons can afford to fly on expenses first class tickets to and fro London every week to undertake very expensive courses which were and cannot be available to them in Ghana, except on fee-paying basis because of their poor academic performances. Others did not show up for work at all yet they enjoy the juiciest positions in our community today.
These sharp teethed boys are not shy of their academic deficiencies but wage into mine fields by insulting the competences and qualifications of Prophet for Alhaji Bawumia (a PhD holder of substance not honorary degrees).
It is in the interest of such characters that all efforts are being made to steal the people’s mandate for our leader to continue in office. When former Minister of Transport, Madam Dzifa Ativor says that a victory for NPP means that she and others would go to prison, members of our community should understand why the unlawful commands are being issued and will be on the increase during the December 7, 2016 elections.
Were members of our community surprised that Mr. Ibrahim Mahama was able to commandeer military personnel, armoured vehicles and equipment (arms and ammunitions) for his private political agenda (garnering support for his brother) to enable them to continue share government contracts, money and business opportunities in Ghana. Until 2009, persons who were “nobodies” in Ghana are today “UNTOUCHABLES” in Ghana. What an irony of life!!!
The opportunity costs of the lootings, fraud and dishonesty of all these characters are the sufferings in our communities today.
Do we get our earned dollar allowances paid in dollars and on time to us when we go for peace support operations under our current leader? The answer is No.
Did we not experience situations where personnel returned from operations and stayed for weeks before their monies were paid to them in piecemeal? Did we not experience occasions when parts of the earned dollar allowance were paid to members of our community in cedis? Are we not lacking clothing and necessaries under John Mahama?
Were we not receiving at least two pairs of camouflage dresses and boots each under President Kufour each year?
In addition to the normal issues, were we mot given two more pairs of the camouflage dress and boots when we were going on peacekeeping operation?
What has happened to all that today under our current leader? When was the last time that, we received camouflage dresses or boots?
Are we not buying our own Clothing when going on peace-keeping operation?
Where has the money gone to? Our peace Keeping Account in New York is being used for other purposes. These corrupt politicians are riding on our backs. They are “doing business” with our sweats.
They are misapplying and misappropriating our peacekeeping dollars while we suffer shortages of all kinds!!! Should it continue?
Do we have fuel for our vehicles? Our debts with the Oil Companies run into millions of cedis with no sign of abatement. Should that continue?
We do not have basic office equipment, stationery and consumables. Our PVs are being used for official purchases with inadequate or no replenishment
Notwithstanding all these injustices meted out to us, the cabals and mafias of our leaders want to use us to keep the corrupt and incompetent leader for another four years. Should we agree?
Can we tolerate and endure that? No.
A few of our community members are enjoying at our expense. A few military personnel associated with the crooked administration have been given vehicles, money, land and other property to “die” for Jour current leader. What have most of us received? We have received shame and disrespect.
Was it not shameful for our leader to announce an increment of one dollar to our peacekeeping money per day? Was it not more shameful when the Public Relations Directorate of the Ghana Armed Forces was made to explain to the whole world how much we were earning from our peace keeping operations?
Was it not after our agitations that there was a turnabout and there was a further four-dollar increase?
Have we received the amount?
What about the leave allowance of seven hundred dollars ($700)? Has it been paid?
When will it be paid? What about the in our local pay and allowance? Have they been paid?
What about those increases for our civilian counterparts? Have they received those amounts?
In sum, are these politicians in the ruling party not taking us for a ride?
Why should we allow ourselves to be used by these fraudulent, inept and incompetent members of the ruling party for their selfish ends?
“No, we no go sit down make them cheat us every day!! Walahi”
LET US ARISE FOR CHANGE!!
LET US BE PART OF THE FORTH COMING POSITIVE CHANGE|!!
LET US RESIST FROM UNLAWFUL COMMANDS.
LET US PROTECT THE PAECE, UNITY AND STABILITY OF OUR DEAR NATION.
LET US REMEMBER THAT IT IS ONLY WHEN WE DEFEND OUR TERRITORIAL SOVEREIGNTY, INTEGRITY, PEACE, UNITY, AND STABILITY THAT WE CAN SHINE IN OUR PROFESSIONS AND BE PROUD OF OURSELVES FOR CONTRIBUTING TOWARDS THE DEVELOPMENT OF GHANA AS TRUE PARTNERS.
WE SHOULD THINK OF GHANA FIRST.
ALL OTHER CONSIDERATIONS MUST BE SECONDARY.
WE SHOULD NOT PLAY SECOND FIDDLE TO THESE SMALL BOYS WHO HAVE BECOME SO ARROGANT AND DISRESPECTFUL BECAUSE OF THEIR ILL-GOTTEN MONEY.
IF THEY ARE TRUE MEN AND WOMEN OF ACOUNTABILIY, PROBITY AND INTEGRITY, THEY SHOULD DECLARE THEIR ASSETS. THEY SHOULD DECLARE ALL THE ASSETS THEY HAVE ACQUIRED IN THE NAME OF FAMILY MEMBERS, FRIENDS AND PROXIES.
THEY SHOULD ALSO BE SINCERE ABOUT THEIR STATUS BEFORE THEY JOINED POLITICS. THEY SHOULD ALSO DECLARE ALL THE WEALTH THEY HAVE SAVED IN FOREIGN BANKS AND ACOUNTS OFFSHORE.
SHAME TO ALL OF THEM!!! NOT ONE OF THEM, FROM THE LEADER DOWNWARDS IS HONEST, CLEAN AND UPRIGHT.
NB: Do we have 120mm Guns at the 66 Artillery Regiment? The last time I checked, GHQ (EME) inspected and declared the 120mm Guns unserviceable…..
“The CO informed members that all the ceremonial dresses in the Unit were unserviceable…..all the 81mm bombs on his Unit Ledger were manufactured in 1962 and suspected to be unserviceable”-CO 2 Infantry Battalion
Uncle Obed, over to you
NAVDOCK….are the budgets going there or it is been used for other things?
