  1. THE EVIL THAT MEN DO WILL ALWAYS AND ALWAYS LIVE AFTER THEM

    President Nana Addo you have done well by condemning the overthrow of Alpha Condé, but is it not too late?
    The ECOWAS leadership failed to advise Alpha Condé when he changed their constitution and stood for another election which was totally wrong and unconstitutional.
    At the time of this evil act the leadership of Ecowas were all happy and quite because it was an agenda for all of them to follow, and we saw what happened afterwards in other Ecowas states.
    We saw about four Francophone state adopted the same style and some of the English speaking countries also did terribly things during election time in their countries.
    Even in Ghana we had the most terribly and dangerous election which resulted in the killing of many which had never happened in our country before.
    The evil that men do will always and always live after them and their descendants.
    Please leaders of Africa, you should try your best to work for your people but not to lord yourselves over them because, the constitution permit your people to resist you when you miss the road of the constitution of the land.
    May God help and bless Africa and purge us from corruption, electoral fraud and changing the constitution to favour the evil leaders.
    Amen and Amen.
