The opposition NDC have out of nowhere, started launching a smear campaign on Hon. Boakye Agyarko, the formidable astute and indomitable character who is tipped to be NPP leader and presidential candidate for 2024. They are doing this smear campaign, first of all, out of fear of his being the most likely choice of the NPP and Ghanaians.
Though Hon. Agyarko has not yet openly declared his intended intention for the NPP leadership bid, the NDC of the eagle accipitrine predator family has cast their jettatura malevolent eyes on Hon Agyarko, upon having navigated the NPP potential leadership pool to fish out the most potent aspirant for destruction even before his “birth”. But lo and behold, he who has Divine unction is immune to all forms of anathema and malicious wishes for a chosen one.
Hon. Boakye Agyarko is a big threat to the NDC !
Whenever Hon. Boakye Agyarko appeared on either radio or television political show, and met with his NDC opponents to argue on issues, those representing the NDC would readily cow down, dismayed and defeated. There was not any single occasion in which Hon Agyarko flawed in his eloquence and presentation of facts in support of his argument.
Indeed, glib-tongue eloquence alone is not a key factor for determining leadership qualities. There’s more to being a potential leader, and one of the major yardsticks for measuring a good potential leader is the person’s honesty and sincerity to his deed of saying.
Identifying a problem, talking about it, and being unable to find or propose a solution for it is something not worth mentioning at-all. Hon Boakye Agyarko is not that sort vain critic, because he would criticise, and provide a solution avenue for it. This is how formidable he is that he was ensnared and made into a sacrificial lamb for “slaughtering”.
As Energy Minister, Hon Boakye Agyarko identified the cause of the dreadful “Dumsor” problem in Ghana, and meticulously proposed a solution for it, with recommendations for the attention and persual of the President.
During his two years tenure of office as Energy Minister, so much improvement was made in decimating the energised and incessant incidence of “Dumsor” that had persisted from the NDC administration. Its after effect has lasted to our benefit even after his decession from the Energy Ministry, for reasons best known, and best to be explained by President Akufo-Addo, Ken Ofori Atta, Asante Bediatuo, et-al.
Ghana’s development from a ‘banana republic’ of continuing dependency on foreign support has been snail-paced because our leaderships have enjoyed wallowing in the warmth of the status quo of corruption and empowering Ghanaians to their advantage.
Ghanaians are fed up, and want to move out of this bottomless pit of darkness, yet we lack the leadership of mettle to execute their political deed of saying to emancipate helpless Ghanaians from the evils of corruption and poverty. It is by this reason of rectitude character in Hon Boakye Agyarko that his honesty and determination together that are continually being his source of attack, and being painted in dark colours by his detractors within the NPP, and without in the NDC, who have joined in the onslaught to battle him down.
The NDC know that if Hon. Boakye Agyarko is elected leader and presidential candidate of the NPP for the 2024 elections, Ghanaians will begin seeing Ghana as a New Haven, whereby their future chances will surely be thwarted, unlike others who only profess change, but effect nothing, making Ghana remain in a state of stasis. Furthermore, so much rot and criminality will be dredged out for the culprits to answer and payback. Nocent parties will surely suffer for their misdeeds. These and many more are what scare NDC about Hon. Boakye Agyarko.
For best leadership and best results in governance for positive change, beyond Hon Boakye Agyarko, there is none for 2024. This is Ghana’s biggest chance to see and enjoy effective leadership, and it is also the biggest headache for the NDC.
They would wish that Hon. Boakye Agyarko does not exist at-all, yet he does, and he will.
