CHANGE

i STAND FOR CHANGE!

for the first time i'm qualified to vote and i'm voting for change!

yes that is what i stand for in the Ghana 2008 presidential elections! (and not just because i'm following Obama - i believe there's the need for change in Ghana too. just so!!!)

and thanks to the most high i have bounced back to life after a short feel of infirment! i'm fit for change!

and it is plain and simple...and complicated...the record (attitude, actions, sayings-insults in fact and wastage of public money) by the incumbent president Kufour is, to say the least, nonsensical! and he has the audacity to be comparing himself to the rest of Africa! how so cheap! how so not cheap when we all know the African situation is a SAD case!

THE KUFUOR RECORD IS NOT ONE TO HAVE AS A STANDARD IN THIS 21st CENTURY!!!

Ghanaians definitely deserve better than a president who would use public money to award himself. Ghanaians deserve better than a president who would call them lazy for complaining that they don't have money while he spends our taxes on frivolous travels around the world. Ghanaians deserve better than a president who plainly sets out to deceive the populace that our currency 'suddenly' (emphasis mine!) is of more value than the dollar after re-denominating the cedi!

Ghanaians deserve better!!!

Ghanaians deserve better than a president who would clearly decide to influence the judiciary just to have political opponents jailed under bizarre circumstances! Ghanaians deserve better than a leadership that does nothing about an Inspector General of Police under whom loads of cocaine go missing from the stores of the Police HQ! I can't for the life of me imagine that that man is still at post but thanks to Kufuor!

That is not the kind of positive change Ghanaians voted for! Sure I believe so. And Kufour should have known that it wasn't that Ghanaians found him too lovable just to make him president! He should have been the first to realize that the stakes were upped too much for room for folly-play! He should have known that had it not been for the foolishness of the then NDC who were also perpetuating nonsense of leadership Ghanaians perhaps and just perhaps wouldn't have look in his direction!

Therefore I stand for change!

I stand for change even more so and not for retaining the NPP in leadership because the man seeking to lead on their ticket claims that Kufuor has done wonderfully well that we must stay the course! That tells me straight that that man called Nana Addo lacks good sense of judgement! and he tells me that he believes that every Ghanaian should own a house! HOW SO nonsensical! and he tells me that he's not seeking leadership to enrich himself because he already has a good job and yet a campaign member and former colleague of his is just about buying (robbing?) a house belonging to the state! (and yet i've heard of the salary complications of hilary clinton's appointment!)

he can't be serious and i'm not too surprised because he Nana Addo too recieved a shambolic award from Kufuor! At a time when human beings are relizing shifts in approach to clear cases of bad leadership like McCain also calling for change profoundly however weak his call, Nana Addo claims that president Kufuor's work is one to be admired and clapped for! nonsense! even bush has started somewhat (somewhat yes!) appologizing for his ills!

So i will vote for change and i hope you do too! and if this change comes and it doesn't work I will vote again for another change! it is one way (if not only) to send a clear statement to political leaders that they must take us the people serious because the power belongs to us and not them! they are supposed to be our servants and we they must know that! we are no more in the age of slavery! human beings are fast learning!

cheers!

Hi Novisi,

Your views on the need for change is so strong to the extent that it simply reading your post feels like listening to a political oratory!

Ghana of cause cannot continue doing the same things over and over again and expect to progress.
We need to change not just our public representatives but also the very ideas that we have held for so long.
May Ghana's future be entrusted into the hands of a group of people who are competent enough to affect the change required for a momentous ressainance in the years ahead.

This, Novisi,

'So i will vote for change and i hope you do too! and if this change comes and it doesn't work I will vote again for another change! it is one way (if not only) to send a clear statement to political leaders that they must take us the people serious because the power belongs to us and not them! they are supposed to be our servants and we they must know that! we are no more in the age of slavery! human beings are fast learning!'

is the reason why we vote every 4 years. I might not identify with your views on certain people (as indeed, I do not identify with opposing views). But your last paragraph should be the people's mantra all the time. Great.
