 We go to the polls on Wednesday, December 7th, 2016 God willing. To vote or not to? Whatever your decision may be, know that...

1. Your vote may not necessarily put food on your table. However, it will determine the quantity and quality of food that gets to your table... and how frequently it gets there.

2. Whoever wins the elections, your utility tariffs and all other bills will never reduce. Don't go killing yourself for a politician!

3. Majority is not always right. Thus, if you don't care about voting, majority will make a choice for you!

4. Before you dare strangle someone because they belong to a different party, remember that irrespective of your differences, you both have the same red blood!

5. A change in government will have almost no significance if you're unwilling to change your bad attitude, especially, towards state property. The first change we all need is attitude change!

6. If you vote for height, don't expect to be led by a politician with foresight. Petty voting makes petty leaders!

7. Put as much faith as you put into your political party into your skills/talent. You'll be amazed what a gem you've been all this while.

8. Elections are almost always between two evils. It behoves on you to choose the lesser evil!

9. Electoral violence begins with gullible minds. Don't believe everything you hear/read about others, especially, in this time. Always verify!

10. Your vote is going to determine how good or bad the next four years will be for you. Vote for your future!

Lydia Forson is just a fake person who can write good English - A Plus

A Plus in an angry mood, chided the actress for calling the NPP intolerant

Controversial musician Kwame A Plus has jabbed Actress Lydia Forson over her comments suggesting the NPP will lose the December 7 elections, saying she is just a phony who writes good English.

The actress in a write up on her blog stated that the opposition New Patriotic Party may lose the December 7 polls if they remain uncircumspect in how they react to criticism with dissenting views.

In a backlash however, A Plus called Lydia Forson a mere sellout who uses her good writing skills to preach things she knows nothing about. According to him, the NPP is only acting in line with the National Anthem which admonishes every citizen to resist oppressors rule adding that the actress only wants Ghanaians to sit back aloof as the nation drowns in crisis, an act he says is unacceptable.

“you don’t want us to be angry with people who are spending our money, people who have taken our monies to go and plant trees and ended up saying they were burnt? ……you want them to be tolerant and happy?....that is how you want the country to run? You don’t know what is happening, you can only write good English and talk plenty…..”

He indicated that the party and its supporters will fight its ‘oppressors” to the core till the country is freed from what he describes as a failed economy. He promised to champion the cause for a fight against any opposing factor in the bid to change the country’s negative plight.

“I am coming to tell you to prepare for a battle, a battle that will determine your future, a battle that will put you in the history books of this country for being part of people who stood against corruption in this country…..we are going into a battle to write our names in a history book”.

Bugri Naabu's bribery claims baseless, useless - Omane Boamah

Minister of Communications, Dr. Edward Omane Boamah

The Information Minister has described as baseless and useless claims by the NPP that President John Mahama and his brother tried to bribe its Northern Regional Chairman.

Dr. Omane Boamah challenged the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to provide more evidence of its claims that the president tried to bribe its Northern regional Chairman, Bugri Naabu.

The opposition NPP has accused President John Dramani Mahama and his brother, Ibrahim Mahama, of attempting to bribe the Northern Regional Chairman of the party, Daniel Bugri Naabu.

Mustapha Hamid, who addressed the media, said the intention was to get Bugri Naabu to turn against the NPP’s flag bearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, portray him as a divisive ethnocentric bigot and destroy his chances of winning the 2016 elections.

Speaking on the Super Morning Show, Friday, the Information Minister said the allegations were planned by the NPP to tarnish the image of the President in response to a press conference he (Omane) organised on Monday.

"I got this call on Monday after the press conference that that was what they were going to do...and I was in the car with my Deputy Felix Kwakye-Ofosu when the call came through so I was expecting it," Dr Omane Boamah claimed.

He said the claims were made "just to confuse" the people as the country goes to the polls in five days and stated categorically that "the President has not and will not bribe anybody let alone Mr Bugri Naabi. For what?"

He indicated that the government is ready to engage the NPP if they have "any shred of evidence that will pin President Mahama to this useless and baseless allegations."

But the Communications Director of the NPP speaking on the same platform insisted that President Mahama engaged in the act.

Nana Akomea dismissed suggestions that Bugri Naabu bought the car himself and concocted the story and insisted that that could have been easily traced through the records of the car.

"If that happened the records will show that Bugri Naabu came to this place, he bought this car for this amount, this is the cheque he issued, and this is the receipt he received," he insisted.

He was resolute that the NPP presented enough evidence to prove that that President Mahama and his brother tried to bribe Bugri Naabu to damage the NPP Presidential candidate.

Mahama should start writing his handing over notes - Owusu Bempah

Owusu Bempah

Controversial prophet Isaac Owusu Bempah is asking President John Mahama to start writing his handing over notes because he has lost the December 7 general elections.

Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah reiterated his claim that, God has rejected the President thus he cannot retain power.
The man of God disclosed this in an exclusive interview on Adom FM’s midmorning programme Work and Happiness hosted by Ohemaa Woyeje, Thursday.

Rev. Owusu Bempah who is also the founder and leader of the Glorious Word Power Ministries alleged that, God is angry with President Mahama.

‘God has rejected President Mahama [because] there is too much blood on his hands and the blood is crying for vengeance’ he stated.

The Man of God stated unequivocally that, the flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Akufo -Addo has already won the election spiritually and that it will manifest physically on December 7.

He added that, any man of God who claims President Mahama will emerge the winner in the elections is working with a different spirit.

“Nana Akufo-Addo has been ordained to win this election and nothing can change it. He is the chosen one by God to lead this nation’ he stressed.
Rev. Owusu Bempah called on President Mahama to prepare to hand over to Nana Akufo-Addo before the ballot is cast.

We have given Bugri Naabu several gifts in the past - Alfred Mahama

Daniel Bugri Naabu,Northern Regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP)

Alfred Mahama, the senior brother of President John Mahama, has expressed shock at the allegation by the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) that the party's Northern Regional chairman, Daniel Bugri Naabu, was offered a bribe by the president and his younger brother, Ibrahim Mahama, to betray the NPP's presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo.

The NPP had alleged in a press conference on Tuesday that Mahama gave Bugri Naabu GHC500,000 cash and a Mistubishi V6 vehicle with the promise to give him an additional GHc3.3 million and a Toyota Land Cruiser vehicle if he could say that Akufo-Addo was a divisive figure who hated northerners.

In an interview on Asempa FM's Ekosii Sen on Wednesday, Alfred Mahama reiterated the National Democratic Congress (NDC)’s denial of the allegation, describing it as unfortunate and sad.

He said Ibrahim Mahama had been very benevolent to Bugri Naabu in the past and that he was surprised the NPP chairman stabbed him in the back.

"…When I heard NPP's allegations, I was sad because it's false", he said, adding: "We won't bribe Bugri Naabu to join NDC because he will not add anything to the party".

It said it was regrettable that Ibrahim Mahama was constantly being treated unfairly by members of the NPP, who he said had benefitted from his benevolence.

"Ibrahim is a benevolent man. Many NPP members have benefited from his kindness. I leave them to posterity", he said
